1) Paranormal, supernatural, real scary stories...literally anything. The only genre where I will read and thoroughly enjoy nonfiction.
2) the Scream franchise. It‘s funny, gory, and scary all at the same time. Also Halloween 2018 bc it was just. so. good.
3) even tho it‘s for kids and not *really* scary, some of the stories in it have made me anxious about real life stuff even as an adult.
(Continued in the comment)
#creepychristmas

i-am-papercrane 4) I watched a the first season of Slasher (really good, but only the first season) and I keep meaning to watch Scream. American Horror Story is also up there.
5) Either or, but I prefer gore.
6) What is a horror movie/book you watched/read as a child that still sticks with you?
(edited) 4d
veritysalter Stephen King‘s ‘Children of the Corn‘, I was far too young, still get to the same point and can‘t watch beyond that now, thirty years later. 4d
teebe Good question! I avidly watched horror movies as a kid so there‘s a lot that have stayed with me for different reasons. The Exorcist is one of them. 4d

MidnightBookGirl The scene from Poltergeist where the one dude starts tearing the skin off his face. 4d
BookwormAHN I don't remember the name of the movie but the ending was a demon coming up from the floor and pulling someone down into hell with them. 3d
ulrichyumiodd I was very easily scared as a child and stayed far away from any horror, haha. I only read tame horror books written for kids - perhaps like Goosebumps? The actual series was in French, and I totally forgot the name 😓 Nothing very scary, anyway! 3d
j9brown The scene from The Fly where he arm wrestles some guy at a bar and breaks his wrist - I'm still uncomfortable with arm wrestling! 3d

Maybe I changed my rating. Who knows. Still, this book remains one of my favorites, even if it‘s my third time reading it. Even if I‘ll forever be #TeamRhys, and forever angry with a certain *you-know-who*, this book is still enchanting and lovely and just....ahhhhh. Feyre, my queen, I hope to see you and your sisters in any upcoming SJM books set in Prythian.

Tonight I‘m having tea, because I‘ve had a zombie cure tea for ages and it just felt right. However, I am certainly more of a coffee person because who has time to wait 3-7 minutes for this tea to steep?! I want it NOW!

That being said, Wind River was a really good movie. Trigger warnings for gore, violence, and rape, but otherwise a great film.

Okay, this got 4 stars only because some of the stories (like, two) rubbed me the wrong way. Most of them were heckin‘ fantastic, and I really loved the innovation and creativity these authors showed with their twists on classic, overdone tropes. Would recommend to anyone who was a fan of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and is all grown up now.
