I love spooky movies, especially old black and white films from the 1950s or earlier. Now I’m not talking about slasher films; those just aren’t for me. But give me a good old Vincent Price or Borlis Karloff flick and I’m a happy camper. I know they’re corny, but they just make me smile. And they’re so unrealistic, that they don’t make me lose any sleep.
However, for some reason, on Halloween, nothing seems quite as spooky and scary to me as Macbeth. I’ve seen the play in person several times, but love watching clips from various versions on YouTube. This clip from the Orson Welles version is one of my favorites. (I know I’ve posted this earlier at our previous site, but this just says Halloween to me.)
How about you? Do you like scary movies? If so, what are some of your favorites?
My first memory is sitting with my mother on a blanket in our backyard surrounded by books and she is reading one of them to me. My love of reading was encouraged by my parents and it continues to today. I’ve gone through a lot of different genres over the years, but I currently primarily read mysteries (historical mysteries are my favorites) and romances (focusing on contemporaries, categories, and steampunk). When I’m not reading or working, I love to travel, knit, and work on various community projects.
