Spooky Halloween Tag (Non-Bookish)

Top Ten Tuesday(94)

Another fun Halloween tag and one that is more for fun than anything else since this isn’t directly book related. Hopefully you’ll all have fun reading through this, answering the questions took FOREVER!

****This is a very long post so if you don’t like long posts don’t read it!****

1. Favorite horror or Halloween-themed song?

“Ghostbusters” of course, it’s definitely my favorite Halloween jam!

2. Name something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark forest or in an abandoned building.

I think the better question would be what WOULD I want to run into? Because the list is quite long for things I don’t want to see! Serial killers, rabid animals, malevolent spirits, creepy dolls, disembodied children’s voices, and anything doing that creepy ass disjointed crawling. Also if I was in the forest part of this question I wouldn’t want to run into any branches or tree roots either….just saying.

3. Have you ever played with a Ouija Board?

HELL NO! AND I WON’T EITHER! I just think “hey, whatever you believe in ghosts or no ghosts you still don’t want to be inviting anything you can’t see to come and talk to you”.

4. Favorite horror monster or villain?

Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th franchise! Why, you may ask? I enjoy the movies and I just really love Jason, I can’t explain it!

5. The creepiest thing that’s ever happened while you were alone?

Creepy things don’t really seem to seek me out so I don’t have many experiences with anything REALLY creepy but I have one that’s slightly serious and one that is just plain funny, both involve me by myself with my family’s dog. She put up with a lot of my crap now that I think of it, bless her.

Funny Story: One summer day back when I was still in high school I was home alone with my dog, Duchess, and heard a LOUD crash from upstairs and of course being the horror movie lover I am I definitely was NOT going to go look! Instead these thoughts ran through my mind: I’m a teenage girl, home alone, during the summer, in the woods, in the middle of nowhere, and someone may or may not have broken into the house to come murder me. So instead of grabbing a phone or even the dog I ran out the door barefoot and hid in my dad’s other garage until my mom got home! Slightly embarrassing.

So the slightly creepy story is this: once again it’s a summer night when I was home alone (no I don’t have absent family members but I did stay home a lot!) with Duchess and the power went out during a storm. I’m immediately on high alert, this is the generic set up for a lot of horror movies after all! I grab a single flashlight and hunker down in the porch corner with Duchess and sit….waiting for the power to come back on, when suddenly Duchess becomes fixated on something in the kitchen. The dark kitchen….in a corner. I aim my light over and see nothing and try to tell her to calm down since nothing was there but she remained fixated on the spot. I don’t remember what happened much after that, but it definitely creeped me the hell out!

6. If you were dared to spend the night in a “haunted house”, would you do it?

I guess this depends on the exact context of the situation such as: do I have to do it alone? I have a ridiculously over active imagination on top of anxiety so if I was alone I would probably think all sorts of things were trying to get me and my answer would be no. Otherwise if I had at least one other person with me it could make for a very interesting experience!

7. Are you superstitious?

In the sense of “am I afraid to walk under ladders” type of superstition? No not really. In the sense of “do I believe in ghosts and psychics”? Yes, I do.

8. Do you ever see figures in your peripheral vision?

I used to when I was smaller when I was playing outside alone and such but I don’t really anymore.

9. Which urban legend scares you the most?

Definitely Bloody Mary especially after watching the Supernatural episode that features her. Another one is the “Killer in the backseat” urban legend which is exactly what it sounds like, driving alone in your car at night with a killer hiding in your backseat. I honestly always check mine before I start driving.

10. Do you prefer gore or thrillers?

Both, I don’t prefer one over the other!

11. Do you believe in multiple dimensions or worlds?

Not really, no. Would that be awesome? Definitely.

12. Ever made a potion of any sort?

Nope. I used to try when I was kid but I never tried in a serious manner.

13. Do you get scared easily?

Not really. I can sit and watch loads of scary movies, read horror books, or go through the haunted houses people set up and while I may jump I’m always having fun and not actually scared. I’ve been watching scary movies since I was a kid because my mom loves them so I’ve kind of been desensitized to them over the years.

14. Have you ever played Bloody Mary?

Yes, unfortunately. My friend talked me into it at a Halloween party and we did it, against my better judgement because I do firmly believe one should not go about inviting things unseen into your house. The only thing that happened was a creepy thud against the mirror on the wall, was it someone messing with us? Could be. No one else was in the house though.

15. Do you believe in demons/the devil?

Yes, I do. This also goes hand in hand with my belief one should not go inviting unseen things into your presence.

16. You’re home alone but you hear footsteps in your house, what do you do?

Ha! Reminds me of the story I told in Question #5 in which case I run outside immediately regardless of things such as wearing shoes. Also I would grab my damn phone and call the cops right away too!

17. If you got trapped in one scary movie, which would you choose?

Probably Halloween because I feel like I’d have a good chance of surviving since it’s a plain old slasher in an urban area. It’s not out in the woods in the middle of nowhere like with Friday the 13th! I am not equipped for ghosts, supernatural creatures, or fighting in my dreams but I think I could handle Michael Myers!

18. If you could only wear one Halloween costume for the rest of your life, what would you be?

I’d probably want to wear a pirate costume forever because pirates look cool and it’d be awesome. But if I have to pick a costume I already have then I’d be Batgirl for eternity because that costume was flattering!

19. Would you ever go to a graveyard at night?

Why not? As long as there aren’t any idiots running around being disrespectful towards the graves and the dead it’d be fine. There’s nothing inherently creepy about graveyards to me.

20. In a zombie apocalypse what is your weapon of choice?

I’d love to be a badass lugging a chainsaw around or a sword but that’s just not practical so I’ll go with my hunting rifle since I know how to use it and it’s relatively easy to handle.

21. Would you rather go to a Halloween party or go trick or treating?

Halloween party! Sometimes they have candy too!

22. You’re in a horror movie. Are you the final girl, the first to die, the comic relief, the skeptic, the smart one, or the killer?

I think I’d be a tie between the final girl and the comic relief! I’ve seen enough horror movies to know the “rules” so I could make it to the end of the movie in that sense but also I may just be clowning around too even though I’m probably not that funny to other people!

23. Do you have to watch something happy after watching a horror movie so you can go to sleep?

Sometimes if the movie was that good! Usually I don’t though because as I said earlier years of scary movies have desensitized me.

24. Whilst watching scary movies, are you the person who yells at the characters, the person with their eyes covered the whole time, or the person who falls asleep?

Definitely the person who is yelling at the characters! Because come on just follow the rules, don’t be stupid, and you’ll live! Someone told you don’t go into the basement? Then don’t go into the basement!

25. Are you the one who gets scared, or the one who does the scaring?

One who does the scaring, I’m a jerk like that. I’m the person who would sit around the fire at the lake and tell stories to scare my little cousins and the person who dresses up for Halloween parties in secret just to jump out and scare people!

26. Favorite scary book?

“Daughters Unto Devils” by Amy Lukavics. It’s terrifying, gory, and twisted!

27. How old were you when you saw your first horror movie?

Younger than I care to remember just because I’d walk into the room and my dad would be watching Child’s Play and fall asleep and my dumb ass would sit down and watch! The first one I CAN remember watching was when I was 10 and I watched The Grudge. I don’t recommend watching that young because both Child’s Play and The Grudge haunt my dreams and I’m forever terrified of disjointed crawling Asian ghosts and dolls.

28. What was your first Halloween costume?

Probably a pumpkin when I was a baby but the first real costume I remember picking for myself was Queen Amidala from Star Wars!

29. What are you going to be for Halloween this year?

I’m actually going as a young Shanks from the anime Once Piece and my boyfriend is going as Trafalgar Law! If you’re familiar with that show at all you’ll know what I’m talking about, I’m super excited to wear it to parties!

30. If you could have a spooky Halloween pet (black cat, owl, bat, rat, wolf), what would you pick?

Black cat! I used to have one named Tinkerbell and she was such a grump sometimes but she adored me. Black cats are gorgeous.

    Great answers! I like the story of the dog seeing something that you did not. Animals are more sensitive to the supernatural.

    Sooo….. any chance of you posting a ‘Batgirl’ pic?

    Happy Halloween!

      Thank you! I know animals are much more sensitive to things like that which is why I was even more freaked out by it!

      Sorry, no chance of that haha!

    This is a fun tag!! I love learning more about book bloggers! Ouija boards freak me out too! I also used to hate when my friends would do Bloody Mary at sleepovers. I am such a baby when it comes to things like that!

      Thank you, I find these tags a lot of fun to do and read as well because like you said it’s always fun to learn more about the blogger!
      If you’re a baby then I’m a baby too because you won’t find me anywhere near a Ouja board if anyone pulled one out I’d be in the car, to the airport, and leaving the country haha!

    I have a somewhat creepy story. My grandmother passed away five years ago and last year I was sitting at my kitchen counter and I could smell cookies baking, the oven wasn’t on or anything. My grandmother and I would bake together. It was like she was there with me, it was creepy and comforting at the same time.

      That’s a really interesting story Ashley and it definitely would be comforting and slightly creepy at the same time. Although I’d be leaning more on the comforting side of things 🙂


  6. Belle October 18, 2017 / 10:01 pm

    Ahh, I despise that weird monster-crawl thing as well *shudders*.
    Also, I love that story about hiding in your garage with your dog! I’ve done something similar to that when I was home alone and thought a door was opening and closing by itself. I just got my dog and we ran to the park hahaha! You and I aren’t going to be the first ones to die in a horror movie 😂.

      Glad it isn’t just me the crawl is honestly the single most terrifying thing to me!

      We definitely will be final girls in the event of a horror movie, haha! Hear noises? Get out of there! Simple. Also always save the dog, always! 🙂

    I have never played the Ouija Board, nor do I ever plan to do that. My friend once suggested we play it, when we were having a sleepover and I was like “hell NO”!! There is no freaking way I’m inviting a spirit to haunt me!
    Oh my God, your story sounds really creepy! Whenever there is a blacklight I get uneasy. I just don’t like staying in complete darkness without a way of turning the light on. It just makes me very uneasy. And I can imagine how much creepier it was because of Duchess staring!
    Okay, I LOVE the fact that you and your boyfriend are going as Shanks and Trafalgar Law!! They are some of the best characters from One Piece! I can imagine how exited you are!! 😀
    Thank you for tagging me! ❤ I'm really exited to be doing this tag soon! (As I definitely want to post it before Halloween.) 😀

      I’ve never had anyone suggest using a Ouija board but I’d be saying the same thing! I’d probably break it in half an go outside and burn the thing!
      I’m usually not too freaked out by the dark but when I’m alone my imagination gets the better of me, especially when an animal is staring at things I can’t see since they’re supposed to be more sensitive to the paranormal!

      THANK YOU ANNA! I’M SO GLAD SOMEONE GETS IT! I’m already prepared for so many people to be like “Um what are you?” but the people who get it are little treasures like yourself! I’m not far into One Piece at all but I adore Shanks and it really is full of so many awesome characters I can’t name them all!

      Can’t wait to read all of your answers when you do this tag, it’ll be fun! 🙂

    I love this so much! Thank you for tagging me! Okay, so, a few things:

    1) I was sitting here nodding like “yep, yep, yep” to almost all of your answers, haha. Twinsies~

    2) “anything doing that creepy ass disjointed crawling” – OH MY GOD, YES. That gets me EVERY TIME.

    3) The backseat killer legend terrifies me and I HATE driving alone at night because of it!

    I work production and act in a haunted house attraction at a real life haunted facility. Sloss Fright Furnace is consistently in Americas top most haunted sites. This past Saturday night, after we had over three thousand people come through our haunt, some of the actors pulled out a Ouija board. I said that I wanted nothing to do with it. They went to some of the most haunted places on the site trying to make contact. They only had one response. When they asked if there were any spirits there, the planchet, or cursor, moved to ‘no’. They got mad and yelled at the smart alecky ghost. 🙂

    This is such a fun post! Although I’m a total wimp when it comes to anything remotely scary, Halloween is my favorite holiday. I had to chuckle when I read your answer to the question about which scary movie you’d choose to get trapped in; I think about that sort of thing every time Halloween rolls around. While I’ve always figured I might have a fighting chance in an urban setting, if I were in an isolated setting – or dealing with a supernatural being – I’d be completely, 100% screwed!

      Thank you! And glad I’m not the only one who does a lot of thinking about surviving horror movies, haha, I of course don’t think I’d be able to handle being out in the middle of nowhere or any sort of supernatural beings either, haha! 🙂
