Book Blogger Hop: Off the book topic - What is your favorite scary movie?

The Week's Question is:
Off the book topic - What is your favourite scary movie? 

My Answer:
I don't like scary movies. I never have even though I've watched more than a fair few: It, Nightmare on Elm Street (1-3), Halloween, Friday 13th, Blair Witch, Scream, Saw, Pet Cemetery, Children of the Corn, The Exorcist, Child's Play... I just don't see the point in them. 

I get no enjoyment whatsoever from being terrified out of my wits. 

Maybe I just have an overactive imagination but I'm twitchy and disturbed for days after I watch something like that.

After I left my teens I decided I'd had enough and no matter what anyone said I wasn't watching them ever again. 

Thankfully my other half has no time for them either so I never have to 'take one for the team' on that score.


The types of Halloween movies I like aren't horror scary, they're... Spooky. Atmospheric. Fun.
I LOVE Hocus Pocus at this time of year. 
The Nightmare Before Christmas. 
(Which is both a Halloween and a Christmas watch in this house.)
The Adams Family
Practical Magic
(Although I could watch this one all year round.)


What's your favourite Halloween movie?


  1. Oooh! I love your list of non scary horror movies! I also loved watching Hocus Pocus, Casper and especially the Nightmare Before Christmas!

    Here’s my Book Blogger Hop!

  2. I'm with you - I do not enjoy being scared. I just don't find the fun in it. There have been a couple (namely The Ring) that creeped me out so much that they stuck with me. I'll stick with the lighter fare. Beetlejuice is always fun. But I think I'm the only person I know that hasn't seen Hocus Pocus!

    1. Oh you must! It's got a little bit of everything! 🎃

  3. I've seen a pretty good number of scary movies but somehow I've missed a lot of the fun ones like Hocus Pocus and Beetlejuice. I'm trying to fix that.

  4. I feel the same way. I like the light and fun spooky ones rather than the hair-raisers.

  5. I love your list of non-scary movies, but I also love a good scary movie. Have a great week. - Katie

  6. I love scary movies any time of the year but really around Halloween. I hope you enjoy your non scary movies though. Have a great week!

  7. I'm watching The Nightmare Before Christmas as I'm commenting! :)

  8. See, I don't like scary movies because I don't get scared lol (although I don't think I would enjoy being scared either)

    I do love A Nightmare Before Christmas! I have Jack & Zero stuff all over my house :-)

    For What It's Worth

    1. I have a few Nightmare Before Christmas themed Christmas ornaments... They're amongst my favs.

  9. I love horror movies. There are so many good ones.

    1. Gore doesn't bother me but I hate being scared...

  10. Yes to all your picks! Those are mine as well. I think the closest to scary I watch this time of the year is The Lost Boys. It's just fun.

  11. Ohh great picks Nicola I don't get scared easily in horror films but when I do get real scared from a film that scares the heck outta me I tend not too re-watch those specific horror films again as well. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog hop from last week Nicola!
