Nancy Gideon's Haunted Open House Giveaway Blog Hop

 

Hey Y'all, I've got some spooky stuff going on here at the Back Fence. I'm participating in Nancy Gideon's Haunted Open House Giveaway Blog Hop! Nancy's got the house open and everyone will be invited to hear about your biggest Halloween scare, enjoy your list of favorite scary books, movies, video games or TV shows, see a picture of you decked out in your all-time favorite Halloween costume, or any other fun Halloween-related post. And, as an extra Trick-or-Treat surprise, this year Nancy will be hosting the Nancy Gideon’s Haunted Open House Giveaway Blog Hop. Winners will be announced on Halloween! 

Here's my spooky contribution to the Blog Hop:


The scariest movie I’ve ever seen was PSYCHO with Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins. I almost ran out of the theater when the shower scene hit the big screen. Yikes! Then there was that scene in the basement with Norman’s mother. OMG! That’s when I knew I wasn't a fan of horror movies of any kind. 

So why did I always go to see the Hitchcock films? REAR WINDOW was another one that kept my heart in my throat and my feet pointed toward the Exit door. NORTH BY NORTHWEST – airplane chases Cary Grant. THE BIRDS – that one was downright creepy and the last scary movie I ever saw. I can’t even read Stephen King without having nightmares, let alone see the movie versions of his thrillers. And forget FRIDAY THE 13th. Just call me chicken!

But I know I’d love to watch Nancy Gideon’s MOONLIGHT series on the big screen. Oh yeah!


Now for the giveaway! I'll be giving away an e-Book copy of Hill Country Man and a $5 Amazon or Barnes & Noble Gift Card. Just fill out the Rafflecopter Form below to enter for your chance to win.





Hop and Follow Along!

  1. The scariest movie I've ever seen was Christine based on Stephen King's novel by the same title. As I recall it's about a car possesed by a demon that kills all females because it's jealous of them. Seems silly, but it's really spooked me out.

    1. Dovile, I salute you for watching any of King's scary movies. He has amazing talent but I'm just too chicken to watch.

  2. I love scary movies of the past... not the gorefests of today where noone gets away and so much blood. Some of the scariest were Poltergeist... I didn't want to live near a burial mound! And Friday the 13th. :) I did watch that one a few times. Sure tells the tale of not going off necking with a boy... you'll end up dead!

    1. Melissa, I agree about the status of current scary movies. Bloody gorefests are not my cup of tea. LOL!

  3. I really enjoy scary, edge-of-your-seat movies, and Hitchcock did those so wonderfully! But gore? Blech. I can't even handle the blood-splashing in action movies these days. I'm a wuss! :)

  4. I'm with you, Loralee. PSYCHO made me afraid to take a shower, especially in any shower that faced the same way as the one in the movie. I love reading thrillers, but I avoid horror stories. Blame it on my imagination. If the writer's good, I start hearing creaks and groans that put me under the covers.

    1. Agreed, Maris. Thrillers, yes - horror stories, no.
      And there's a big difference in them. However, I confess I really got hooked reading Nancy Gideon's paranormal Moonlight series. Max is one fine hero!

  6. The pilot episode of American Horror Story. It creeped me out so bad I had to leave the light on. I'm usually down with scary or horror but NOT slasher. Don't like those things that make you afraid to leave your apartment.

    1. Nancy, you know me. Anything with 'horror' in it gives me heebie-jeebies big time. I'll stick with suspense and of course, the Moonlight series with Max and Cee-Cee.

  7. Yes, Psycho was THE horror movie for me. To this day, I won't take a shower if I'm home alone.

  8. I agree about Psycho. To me the scariest Hitchcock movie was The Birds. Yikes! Glad to see you at the back fence again, Loralee. :)

    1. Diane, The Birds was definitely on the same level of scary. I could almost feel them swooping down on me. Eeeeek!
