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!****
Spooky Halloween Tag created by Simply Kenna.
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.
