Horror movies bring out the total wimp in me – I’m the one “watching” with my hands in front of my face asking those around me “is the gross/scary part over yet?” But there’s something thrilling about a full blown case of the heebiejeebies because of a book. Bring on the jumping at shadows and cringing at night time noises!
My top five scary stories:
Nightshift by Stephen King
Turn of the Screw by Henry James
“Midnight Meat Train” by Clive Barker
Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
“Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe
