What is Lurking in the Shadows?
While today Halloween might typically be a time for children to have fun and dress up, ringing doorbells and collecting candy, we are always on the lookout for things that go bump in the night.
Some people cover their eyes when they watch scary movies or close their eyes going through a haunted house. They love the idea of being scared in a controlled environment.
Sometimes things don't go as well as planned, do they? What lurks in the shadows of the night or within your dreams just waiting for you?

The Shadow Lurker
Afraid to Look Under the Bed?
Remember when you were laying in bed at night, blanket pulled up to your chin, worrying about the monster under your bed, in your closet and over in that very dark corner of your room?
You knew he was there, waiting. You could hear him breathing even as your breath became more labored. The thought of getting up to go to the bathroom was more terrifying than lying there quietly with your eyes darting from corner to corner.
Just the thought of putting your feet on the floor and letting the monster under the bed pull you under would cause you to go to extremes to jump as far from the bed as you could. Sometimes, thankfully Mom or Dad would hear you and come check and scare the monsters away.
But only for a while...
Find Your Scary Movies on Amazon
A favorite Halloween pastime is to watch scary movies. For some, the newer and scarier the better where others prefer the classics.
Find the perfect movie for you and your family, then grab some popcorn and settle in for the thrills and chills!
Below you will find collections of classic horror films.
Curious or Cautious?
When you are watching a scary movie do you find yourself saying "No! Don't open that door!" Or are you the type that is curious and must know what that noise was?
Do you really want to know what is happening on the other side of the door?
Just as with all movies, some thought it was scary and some didn't. I personally thought it was very frightening.
How Do You Handle Fear?
If you were a character in one of these films, how would you or do you think you would react to fear?
Are you ready to be really frightened? Do you have your loved one to cuddle up with or at least your dog, cat or teddy bear?
Turn out the lights and get your feet off the floor so the bogey man doesn't go for your tootsies while you are watching the movie.
I was watching this with a friend when the phone rang at midnight. We both nearly had to be peeled off the ceiling! This movie really creeped me out.
Jason Voorhees and Friday the 13th
Find Jason on Amazon
Jason and Friday the 13th have a whole series of movies to check out. The first movie was my favorite. Even more than Texas Chainsaw Massacre, this Friday the 13th movie franchise has given me a lifelong respect for chainsaws. Every time I hear one, I begin to move slowly away from the sound.
