Lit Flicks Challenge October Questions

I just realized I still needed to do the October Activity for the Lit Flicks challenge. I joined too late to do the September one, but I'm going to try and keep up on them for the rest of the challenge!

The questions:
-Which medium (book or film) is better at creeping you out?
- Do you have a favorite Halloween-ish book that you read every year or movie that you watch every year?
- What is your favorite scary movie adaptation?
- What is your favorite scary book that has been made into a movie?

I think movies for sure creep me out more than books. I can much easily read a scary book than watch a scary movie. Though, books DO creep me out! I remember being a little creeped about by The Historian awhile back... reading it while my husband was gone on a business trip and every thing! And I don't think I can handle some of the Stephen King books, as I've mentioned before.

My favorite kind of creepy movie is the subtle creepy. For example, I love The Others. Also, What Lies Beneath wigs me out every time.

No, I don't have a book or movie that I have to revisit every Halloween. But that would be a fun tradition to start!

A couple of my favorite scary movie adaptations are The Pit and the Pendulum, though I haven't seen that one in years. I'm pretty sure it was this version. Then there's Jaws, and The Shining.
Favorite scary book to movie? Hmmm... I'm drawing a blank right now and then as soon as I hit publish all the answers will come to me. I'm thinking the blank is because I don't read a whole lot of scary books!


  1. I did a slightly different version of this today. I think I watch at least the first two Scream movies every year around this time.

  2. I tend to avoid scary books and movies, although I really enjoyed the RIP challenge, the two years I participated. This year, I actually feel like something is missing, without the usual atmospheric-book challenge. I'll be back to the RIP, next year.

  3. I, too, get more freaked out by movies than books - usually. The Historian definitely set a scary mood! I didn't realize that there is a movie version of The Pit and the Pendulum. I'll have to pick that up. Thanks!
