If youâ€™re looking to expand your repertoire of Halloween activities this year and have seen every horror movie there is on Netflix, the next realm that you should begin to explore is the world of horror novels. Often, these are the source material for our favorite horror films. For example, tons of movies have been made using Stephen Kingâ€™s works alone, but there are lots of other amazing but less famous authors. Horror novels have all the terror of their film counterparts â€” the creeping suspicion, the unreliable or vulnerable characters â€” plus you often get the chance to see into the mind of the characters and explore their motivations.
For anyone who loves to be scared, there is nothing like watching a good old fashion horror film to get your blood curdling. They can leave you with goosebumps, a racing heart, and terrible nightmares. Horror movies can be about anything from a crazed lunatic to the supernatural. The only element that is mandatory is the ability to scare whatever audience is watching.
