First of all, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! I hope that you are having a spooky day!
I was tagged by my amazing friend Heather @The Sassy Book Geek to do this tag. Thank you once more! ❤ 😀 Be sure to check out her blog, she is one of my favourite people on here!! Plus her blog is amazing, so you’re definitely missing out if you aren’t following her!
This tag was originally created by Simply Kenna.
WARNING: This is a really LONG post. You have been warned.
1. Favourite horror or Halloween-themed song?
It’s kind of impossible for me to choose just one, so here are some of my favourites:
- This is Halloween – Marilyn Manson
- Nightmare – Avenged Sevenfold
- Little Pieces – Avenged Sevenfold
- Shadow Forest – Nox Arcana (or rather most of their songs)
- Our Solemn Hour – Within Temptation
- Waking the Demon – Bullet for my Valentine
2. Name something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark forest or in an abandoned building.
Umm…ANYTHING that could/would hurt me. I think that the answer to this question is quiet obvious. It would be a lot harder to finds something that I would want to run into.
3. Have you ever played with a Ouija Board?
No and I never want to. Seeing that I actually believe, to some degree, in ghosts. There is no way that I would want to invite a ghost into my home. I have a feeling that it would definitely end in a disaster.
4. Favourite horror monster or villain?
I love horror movies about ghosts. So they are my favourite monster, if you can classify them as that. I just find them to be the scariest.
(Most of the time that is.) Some of my favourites are:
- A Nightmare on Elm Street,
- The Woman in Black,
- Ghost Ship,
- The Conjuring.
5. The creepiest thing that’s ever happened while you were alone?
My family house is rather old and everything squeaks and creaks in it as it is. One weekend my parents decided to visit some of my family in a different state and I didn’t feel like going with them, so I decided to stay home and watch the house, feed the animals and such things.
The first evening that they were gone there was a blackout in the whole street. There was literary no light for miles and everything was very quiet.
(It was already past midnight.) I went from my room to the living room to get a candle, so that I can at least see something. The whole house was quiet aside from me walking on the creaky floor. I got the candle and lighted it up and slowly made my way back to my room. I had to pass a huge mirror, which was very unpleasant as my reflection with the candle was rather creepy. (I have no idea why I felt the need to look at myself.)
As soon as I got into my room and put the candle down it blacked out
(or turned off, however you call that), but every window was closed and there was no wind to turn it of. I lighted it two more times and two more times the same thing happened – the candle would burn for a while and then suddenly turn off. Then I heard the rattling of the wind outside and the window in another room creaked. (Not sure which room it was coming from, as I didn’t want to go and look.) It was really creepy!
Luckily the light came back on soon after and that passed without more incidents.
(I think the blackout lasted for around half an hour or so.)
6. If you were dared to spend the night in a “haunted house”, would you do it?
Probably yes. It really depends on the circumstances. If I had to do it on my own, I most likely wouldn’t. If I could have some friends with me, then probably. And it also depends on how haunted the house actually is. But you can bet that if something were to happen I would be out of there immediately!
7. Are you superstitious?
Yes and no. To some degree I believe in ghosts, but I’m not wary of black cats or any similar superstitions.
8. Do you ever see figures in your peripheral vision?
No, not really. I did have a period when I was younger when I thought I saw figures, but that was a really long time ago and it happened for just a short amount of time.
9. Which urban legend scares you the most?
Which urban legend doesn’t scare me is the question. There are so many creepy and scary ones that picking the top one seems impossible. Recently I have been reading up on Japanese urban legends and they are really scary!
(Why? Because I apparently enjoy creeping myself out.)
10. Do you prefer gore or thrillers?
I definitely prefer thrillers. I’m not bothered by gore, but movies that are only gory and nothing else tend to get boring rather quickly for me. The same goes for books and other media as well.
11. Do you believe in multiple dimensions or worlds?
I find the whole concept of multiple dimensions fascinating. Now I’m not sure if I believe it or not. I feel as if I don’t have enough information about it to form a concrete opinion. Plus it’s not something I think about often, so I don’t have many thoughts on it in general.
(Maybe in the future, when I research it more.)
12. Ever made a potion of any sort?
Kind of but not really. I had a friend when I was little and together we liked to play witches. So we made some imaginary potions and did other things that we thought witches did. I’m not sure if that really counts or not?
13. Do you get scared easily?
No, not really. Or at least I like to think that I don’t get scared easily. There really aren’t many things that scare me. Even after watching a horror movie I can immediately go out in the dark without problems. I don’t tend to get scared when people try to scare me. And even in somewhat spooky situations I tend to keep a calm head. So, no I don’t get scared easily.
14. Have you ever played Bloody Mary?
No, I haven’t. And I also don’t plan to playing it EVER. As I have already mentioned in this tag, I believe in ghosts to some degree – so why in the world would I want to summon a ghost, that will most likely end up killing/harming me?
15. Do you believe in demons/the devil?
In a way yes, but in a way also no. It would take me ages to actually explain what I mean with that, so I shall leave it at this for now.
(I honestly don’t feel like getting into it right now.)
16. You’re home alone but you hear footsteps in your house, what do you do?
There are two options for me:
- I would either stay in my room
- or get the hell out of the house!
It really depends where in the house I am when I hear them. If I’m in my room, it’s safer to stay there as the exit to the house is literary on the other side and I would have to go through nearly all the rooms to get out. If I was in the living room or anywhere else, I would definitely get the hell out of the house and then see what I will do next.
17. If you got trapped in one scary movie, which would you choose?
I’m copying Heather here and going with Halloween. It’s the one that I have the biggest chance of surviving. There is no way I’m equipped to fight ghosts or any other supernatural creatures. But I think I would stand a chance against Michael Myers.
(Or at least that’s what I’m hoping.)
18. If you could only wear one Halloween costume for the rest of your life, what would you be?
A vampire. Definitely a vampire.
19. Would you ever go to a graveyard at night?
Yes, I would. My best friend and I actually want to go together to a graveyard at night. We are both fascinated with ghosts and other macabre things, so visiting a graveyard at night seems like a good idea.
(Which it probably isn’t.) Hopefully we will be able to go some time in the future!
20. In a zombie apocalypse what is your weapon of choice?
Any type of gun. They seem like the most affective and while I would love to have a sword, I think I wouldn’t get that far with it. And I did use a gun before, so there is that as well. Though lets be real, I would probably die immediately in a zombie apocalypse.
(Which would probably be the best, as trying to survive would be very hard and exhausting.)
21. Would you rather go to a Halloween party or go trick or treating?
Definitely a Halloween party. I think I’m too old to go trick or treating, plus that really is not a thing where I’m from so I wouldn’t get any candy as it is.
(And people would think I’m crazy, so there is that as well.)
22. You’re in a horror movie. Are you the final girl, the first to die, the comic relief, the skeptic, the smart one, or the killer?
Probably a mix between the smart one and the skeptic. As I already mentioned, I tend to keep a clear head even when faced with creepy and somewhat scary situations. I’m the person who always
(okay, most of the time) has a solution for any problem, or at least some kind of advice. So I feel like I would be the smart one in that situation, or the skeptical one – depending on how much everyone else is freaking out.
23. Do you have to watch something happy after watching a horror movie so you can go to sleep?
No, I don’t. I’m scared of a movie while watching it, but once that finishes I’m usually alright. I’m definitely not going to bed right after watching a horror movie, as I tend to dream about what I watched. But I don’t need to see something happy afterwards, I just need some time to calm down.
(Only if the movie was scary that is.)
24. Whilst watching scary movies, are you the person who yells at the characters, the person with their eyes covered the whole time, or the person who falls asleep?
I think I’m a combination of the person who yells at the characters and the one that falls asleep, depending on the movie that is. I have fallen asleep watching horror movies before, when I found them boring and not really scary. I usually watch horror movies with my best friend and then we tend to yell at the characters together!
25. Are you the one who gets scared, or the one who does the scaring?
I’m actually neither of those two. I’m not that easily scared and I never really feel like scaring other people. But if I had to pick one, I would definitely be the one doing the scaring.
26. Favourite scary book?
If you know me at all, you know at least two things about me:
- I love Stephen King books and most of my favourite scary books are by him.
- It’s impossible for me to pick only one book when there is a question like this.
So here are some of my favourite Stephen King books, I adore all of them. And they all scared me in different ways.
(The scariest to me is probably It.) If you haven’t read any of these I would recommend starting with The Shining. It’s definitely a Stephen King classic and one of the best horror books that I have ever read.
27. How old were you when you saw your first horror movie?
I don’t actually remember, but I was probably too young. Even when I was a child I stayed up really late
(which my parents didn’t know) and watched tv, as I had it in my room. So I stumbled across some horror movies as well. I think the first one I saw was one about werewolfs, but I honestly have no idea which one it was. (It was ages ago and I only remember some things from it.)
28. What was your first Halloween costume?
Halloween isn’t really celebrated where I’m from. It’s just not a big deal, especially when you are younger. There are some Halloween parties in bars and clubs, but you obviously can’t go there as a child. My first Halloween costume was a witch, which I was for a high school party. That just shows how Halloween isn’t really celebrated there.
29. What are you going to be for Halloween this year?
Nothing actually. This year I just don’t feel like going to a party or anywhere for that matter, so I won’t. And I obviously don’t have a reason beyond that to dress up for Halloween.
30. If you could have a spooky Halloween pet (black cat, owl, bat, rat, wolf), what would you pick?
Definitely a black cat! I love cats in general, my favourite colour is black so it’s literary the perfect pet for me!
