Can you believe it is almost mid October already!? Halloween is coming soon! I think this is a perfect opportunity to run a little contest. The prize? The collection of my handcrafted spooky season beads shown above!
Ok, so I have been thinking about fear this month, and the things that scare me. I have also been thinking about scary movies. Isn't it crazy that horror and suspense movies are so popular? What is it that draws us in to willingly frighten ourselves? I don't watch a lot of monster horror movies, with vampires and all that. I do watch some of that in anime though. To me the scariest movies are things that could happen in real life, like serial killers. Movies like Silence of the Lambs, Seven, and Saw...things that could possibly happen in real life.
So my challenge to you is to simply tell me your favorite scary movies. What films do you watch knowing you will get your pants scared off of you? Or what movies have chilled your soul and have had a lasting effect on your psyche?
Post your scary movie thoughts in a comment on my blog: earthenwood-beads.blogspot.com or on my new Live Journal: earthenwood.livejournal.com. On October 21st, I will randomly select a winner who will receive the whole set of spooky beads shown above, just in time for Halloween!
I leave you with a video of clips of an old scary movie, Psycho, set to music by the Talking Heads "Psycho Killer"
*edited to add* if you are posting anonomously, please make sure to leave a name and email or website, in case I select you as the winner! I will post the winner on the blog on Oct 21st, so check back!
