Hells yes!!

Meh. I can't remember the last (current) horror film I've seen, and there's a reason for that. Give me the oldie moldy B-classics ANYDAY. Hotel Hell, the Killer Bees, The Blob, etc., THAT'S where it's at!! I have to admit though, I *did* buy The Others, but have yet to watch it 'cuz my hubby isn't into horror films (got too much exposure to the classics as a kiddie).

3. What is your fave type of horror film; Sci-fi. slasher, psychological thriller, inanimiate object come to life, spoof, zombies....whatever?

Hmm....I'm not sure that I have a "favourite", well, I love sci-fi (just TRY to argue with me that Serenity wasn't scary as FUCK) and psychological ones (SOTL!!). I'm also into slashers and thrillers...and spoofs....and, well, yeah. Let's just say I really like horror movies (but I hardly ever get to see them!)

4. What are some, if any, of you fave horror authors? least fave?

No contest, it's Stephen King pour moi. I used to enjoy VC Andrews books, which are classified as horror, although I prefer to think of it as softcore smut for teenage girls. I tried reading a Dean Koontz book once and nearly stabbed my eyeballs out. It was good 'til I got 2/3 into it, then it just became ludicrous. I also liked those Scary Stories books by Schwartz, and honestly, they're STILL fun!!

5. Haunted house. yay or not so much?

Um, I've only ever been to one. My dad vowed NEVER to take me to one again. Then he died. ;) (I've thought about going to one, but it seems like a lot of money for a bit of entertainment. For less than $10 I can go to the movies and get 1.5-3 hours of entertainment, which is what I'd rather do.)
