This week’s topic:
Top 5 spooky worlds
(Spooky worlds are a THING. Let’s talk about all the places you never want to go… Or maybe you do want to go, if you’re into that sort of thing!!)
Yes, indeed. I’ve visited some spooky worlds in books and TV shows.
Here’s one I’ve visited often:
I love the show, but I wouldn’t want to live in the world Supernatural is set in. Too much drama. Too many battles against supernatural creatures. And the world is always ending because someone — the Winchesters, usually — is always doing something to fuck it up.
This one I visited with Rachel at Life of a Female Bibliophile:
Rachel and I have been buddy-reading these books. It is a paranormal, historical fiction YA series set in the 1920s about a group of teenagers who have psychic/supernatural abilities and use them to keep malicious ghosts at bay as well as a malevolent specter. I… would NOT want to be live in this world either. I don’t think I’d sleep a wink with so many ghosts running around.
I go here sometimes… when the mood hits:
A horror trilogy that was adapted as a TV series. It’s about a vampire apocalypse that begins in present-day NYC. Much as I love reading and watching TV shows and movies about the zombie apocalypse, I wouldn’t want to live through one. I don’t think I’d survive one.
I visited this one a couple months ago:
Horror TV show set in the U.S. about people trying to survive the zombie apocalypse. Not many people seem to like this TV show, but I love it. Wouldn’t want to live in this world, though.
I lived through this:
Last year was spooky and horrific in several ways. I also enjoy watching TV shows and movies about virus outbreaks (like, umm… Outbreak, the old film starring Dustin Hoffman) but I never, ever, never-ever-never want to experience one again.
