People disappear all the time. — Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon 🍃 . Rereading the first three books and rewatching the show before the new season premieres on November 4th! Doing so in the midst of #OctoberHorror seems impossible but we're overachievers here 💪🏻 . Speaking of, there's a new terrifying post on Technology in Horror Movies for #ThursdayMoviePicks! My number one pick is traumatising for me, so if the name Samara gives you nightmares, beware 💀 . Link in bio, if you dare 🎃 👉🏻 @returning.videotapes
Just finished THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE 👻 on Netflix and it was really good! 🗨️ Have you seen it? Scarier than your average horror series, but with an ending that does not leave you terrified, which... I have mixed feelings about. . I was relieved, but at the same time I felt robbed of that classic horror ending... It sort of voided the whole thing for me, horror wise, but I guess it elevates it to a horror drama. I just wasn't expecting it! What did you guys think??
#TopTenTuesday was all about the longest books we've ever read! Mine was 870 pages long (and it's featured in this pic, can you guess??). 🗨️ What's your largest page count to date? . The post with the full list of ten books is up on the blog (link in profile), and some of you already shared higher counts! Which is just... wow 👏🏻
Are you excited for Halloween?? 🎃 This month is my favorite because it's the perfect excuse to indulge in all the horror things: movies, tv shows, books, art — I consume it ALL 👻 . If this sounds good to you, then you'll love this month on the blog! Long time readers know I do #OctoberHorror every year, so expect spooky posts with lots of scary movie/etc recommendations!

There are two fresh posts on the blog! ✨ One is my review of The Nun (long one, lots of feelings), and the other is my most anticipated books coming this Fall for #TopTenTuesday! . There are SO MANY great ones but I'm committed to rereading Outlander 1-4 and HP so most likely I won't pick any of them up before mid-November. 😭
Went to see THE NUN (2018) last night and it was such a let down. I love the conjuring universe and am a huge horror fan, so the anger is tenfold here. 🙄 . Review to come this week, right now I'm rating it ⭐⭐ and thinking that's pretty generous. That said, Taissa was perfect for the role, and costume design was 👌🏻That's about it for positives on this one. . 💬 Are you a fan of horror films?
