When I was so young, there was only one digit in my age (less than 10 years old) Sister Debbie, Marsha Hagberg and I went to see THE BEST scary movie ever–

13 Ghosts!

You really need to watch this wonderful movie for the first time when you’re too young to realize how hokey it is. After all, it was filmed in Illusion-O and you got free ghost viewers! (Wish I still had mine.)

We three girls saw it when we were young enough to be delightfully scared to death. We watched most of it from between our fingers. (Tell me what’s happening!)

The three of us watched The Wolfman, The Mummy, Dracula and Frankenstein the same way and loved every minute of it.

I still love all those great Halloween movies, but 13 Ghosts will always be my favorite. (G-Man doesn’t get it, but I think it missed it the first time it came out. Poor guy.)  

I know there have been other, truly frightening movies made since the “greats” such as Halloween, Friday the 13th and some of those other blood dripping, stomach turning films, but they’re too true to life. The really good ones have absolutely no truck with reality. (A man who turns into a bat and back again? Really?)

And isn’t having fun and setting aside reality what Halloween is really about?

Which kind of Halloween movies do you like best?

For as long as I can remember, I've loved two things--reading and people--and that led me to become a writer. Many of my stories are set in Small Town Worlds. I'm a wife, mother, sibling and an aunt. I have a deep faith in God, and an exciting life in Christ. Maybe I shouldn't be (after all, he's God!) but I'm constantly amazed at the things He's up to. :)

I'm so glad you dropped by my Small Town World! Hope you'll leave a comment. I really enjoy hearing from you!
