Hey Fellow Horror Fans!
I’m not even quite sure where to begin with all this so I’ll start at the top.
My name is Shauna, and I’m a Horror-holic. I have been using fear for the roughly the past 20 years. It started out quite simply by picking out a couple of books out of my little library in small town BC, one of which was Scary Stories to Tell In The Dark, another one was Myths and Legends. It took a downhill spiral from there. I have seen so many movies, some good, some GREAT, and some were entirely laughable. But I just keep at it. As long as they keep making them, I’ll keep watching them.
Some of my favourite authors are Stephen King, Clive Barker, Thomas Harris, HP Lovecraft, Kelley Armstrong, and Dean Koontz. Some of my all time favourite books would have to be IT, Pet Semetary, Lasher, Hannibal, Insomnia, Bag of Bones, Bitten, and Tales of the Undead. Movies, lets see. They all kind of link into categories right? For the Zombies (I LOVE TO FEAR ZOMBIES, no idea why they just freak me out) anyway Pet Semetary -sidenote, since having kids, I have not been able to A. Pick up the book. B. Watch the movie, weird huh? Dawn of the Dead, City of the Dead, Return of the Living Dead, I mean you get the point. I have to add Shaun of the Dead, because I found it absolutely brilliant!!
Next category lets see, Vampires, why not. Dracula (Francis Ford Coppola), I just adored the film, I think it must have been the way it was shot, it was so photographic and mixed up. I LOVED IT! I did, really enjoy Interview with the Vampire, although I was completely leery about having Mr Pretty Boy Cruise playing Lestat, I was pleasantly surprised by it. Queen of the Damned of course, it was a really well put together film. Loved Lost Boys, from the days of my youth!
Next up, Ghosts! Poltergeist, The Sixth Sense, The Others, Ghostbusters 1-2, The Haunting, the Gift, Amityville Horror, which by the way I have to say I loved the remake, I wasn’t expecting much all in all, but I actually jumped a couple of times, which is fantastic in my books!
Hmm…this is getting longer then I thought it would, okay I have some actual mundane things to do now, so I’ll leave it at that, but hopefully someone will trip across this little community and be interested enough to sign up!
