I know this is frivolous musing, but, it is the weekend and since Larry and I are the only ones here, what the heck.
I watched a spook movie today…It was called “The Black Woman” or “The Woman in Black” or something like that. It starred Harry Potter who was attempting to portray an adult. Anyway, the movie was so predictable that it was tedious. This seems to be true with all spook movies these days. Half decomposed bodies jumping out of walls…yawn. Headless corpses popping up everywhere…yawn. People wandering through the corridors of old houses with candles…yawn…a bunch of boring, predictable crap. Not going to scare anyone over the age of three or maybe two.
I haven’t seen a good spook film since “The Omen”...well, maybe “Christine”.
I was working on another novel…which was a spook novel. At 60,000 words, I ditched it because it was the same old crap…haunted house, scary stuff, innocents caught up in horrific events…yawn. I do not want to add any more of this ghostly blathering to the saturated marketplace.
So, BOO! Did that scare you?
