Model Monday #08: Halloween
Why is it that scary things, dark things, intrigues us, enthralls us?
My opinion is problem the same of why all fantasy intrigues us: because it isn’t real and we are attracted to the unknown … we want to know more, and sometimes we even wish it was true. Not ghost-true, but magic-true ;)
I confess … I’m super chicken for horror movies. I am. And for books too. I read only a handful of horror books in all my life. And as far as movies goes, I watched The Shining, The Exorcist, The Prophecy series and that’s it lol It all happened a long time ago, when I had no sense and thought I wouldn’t be scared lol Now, I simply don’t watch it. Period.
But I also confess I would love to write a dark story. Not horror exactly, just dark, mysterious, with terrifying ghosts and malicious witches …
