  2. The Exorcist
  3. The Thing (John Carpenter original)
  4. Night of the Living Dead (original)
  5. Halloween and Halloween 2 (You can't watch one and not the other.)
  6. The Changeling (One of the creepiest ghost stories EVER!)
  7. The Sixth Sense
  8. Poltergiest
  9. A Nightmare on Elm Street (original and the only truly spooky one)
10. The Shining
11. Let Me In

Movies are fun, but I'm a huge X Files fan and here are some X Files episodes you should check out if your an old time fan of the series or want something new to watch that you've never seen before. Can get them from Hulu or Netflix.

   2. Kingdom Hospital
   3. Night Stalker
   4. Fringe
   5. Ghost Hunters
   6. Paranormal Adventures
   7. History Channel's Haunted History of Halloween
   8. Fact or Faked
   9. The Twilight Zone

If movies are not your bag of treats, here is my recommended reading for Halloween this year.
   1. Skeleton Crew by Stephen King
   2. Twilight Eyes by Dean Koontz
   3. I Am Legend by Richard Matheson
   4. Interview With the Vampire by Anne Rice
   5. Salem's Lot by Stephen King

   Have a great Halloween and stay safe.

Been very busy with not very important things....

I've been very busy as of late and apologize for not keeping up on the blog.  Something people don't realize about me is that I'm an avid gamer.  Recently I've been given the opportunity to beta test Star Wars the Old Republic.  I cannot go into any details of the game here as it would be breaking Biowares Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA to those who are not familiar with beta test terms.)  Needless to say, for the next month or so I'll be testing that game.  It is regarded among SWTOR fans as an honor to be selected for such a thing and it really is exciting to be a part of it.  I'll be posting more when the game gets released in December.  I hope everyone who comes to this blog expecting sagely writing advise to please forgive me as I'm taking a slightly different direction with things at the moment.  Trust me, I'll be back eventually.  Writing is a disease for witch there is no cure.
