Road Trip Wednesday- Best of Horror

If this post comes out before YA Highway's post it means Sandy has taken my power out...I set it on a schedule just in case. Sorry for any confusion this might cause.

This week's YA Highway Road Trip topic: Halloween! What's your favorite scary book or movie?

First off, I love Supernatural Thrillers and have read a lot of wonderful YA ones, but they don't really scare me.

Scary (for me) is when any character, including the main one, can die at any time.

I don't watch or read a lot of that kind of scary, so for my favorites, I have to go old school:

Favorite Movie: Aliens II

Don't get me wrong, the first Alien movie was amazing. And soooo scary. But the second one, with the child involved, scared me even more.

Favorite Book: Dreamcatcher

I've listened to a lot of Stephen King (they were some of the first books done unabridged in audio). I like his group-of-friends ones the most: The Body, IT and Dreamcatcher. Of those, Dreamcatcher scared me the most. The movie didn't do it justice.
What About You? Which books and movies scared you the most?    
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!           


  1. I do quite like Aliens as a movie but in general I hate scary films! Books aren't as bad but I tend to ignore them were possible!

  2. I'm not really into scary movies, but I have seen the Aliens movies (more hubby's thing than mine). We actually just watched Aliens a couple weeks back and I know what you mean about it being creepier with a kid involved.

  3. I don't think I've ever seen ALIENS II, but I found the first movie frightening (in a very enjoyable way!).
