Last night, I finally saw Don’t Breathe. I had been wanting to see it SO bad, but just haven’t had the time to go check it out. First, Jane Levy is amazing in this movie. I knew she would do a great job, based off of her role in the Evil Dead remake, but she really did a great job in this film. The film had a really surprising plot and quite a few twists that were unexpected. I went into the movie knowing there were going to be some plot twists, but nothing really prepared me for what happened. Now, it’s not a full on “horror” film, but it was a pretty intense thriller. If you haven’t seen Don’t Breathe, I definitely recommend seeing it (preferably in a theater). It was so quiet in the movie theater that I felt like I was literally involved in the movie. Everyone feels like they’re seeing something they shouldn’t see. It was definitely more than I expected and I’m pretty impressed with the film.
Creepster has been up for ONE YEAR. That’s so crazy to me! I remember this time last year, I was sitting in my apartment trying to decide if I even wanted to blog about all this weird stuff. I was nervous to be judged and nervous about having everyone read my articles and then I got over that and created Creepster. I couldn’t be more happy of my decision.
Over the past year, I have made some great blogging friends. I have gained some awesome readers and followers. There have been times when I stray away from blogging, but I always ended up coming back. It is hard keeping up with a blog, haha. I didn’t realize it would be a full time job on the side. That is why one of my goals is to post a lot more than I am now. I would also like to post more projects on my site too. When I first created Creepster, I wanted to post paranormal stories as long with horror movie reviews, projects, etc. I would like to talk more about the paranormal and post less about horror films. We will see how it goes!
Mostly, I just want to thank all the people who have read my blog and enjoyed it. It means so much to know that I have a few people out there who actually enjoy reading this blog. I hope there is much more to come! Thanks to everyone!
Last night, I went and watched ‘Lights Out’ and I am officially scared of the dark now. The movie was not as horrifying as I was anticipating it to be, but it was still very creepy and thrilling. It is the kind of movie that is constantly keeping you on the edge of your seat. It’s like you know someone is going to jump out, but you are constantly waiting for it happen. Diana was very creepy and I loved the background story of her, it was different. I thought it was more interesting to hear the whole background story of Diana.
I recommend this movie and I think it would be more enjoyable to watch it as a group. I probably wouldn’t want to see this movie alone.
Go see ‘Lights Out’!
Lights Out looks like a super creepy movie, and based on the 9/10 reviews I’m really hoping this movie is the horror flick we all deserve. If you haven’t seen the trailer, check it out:
This movie is based off a short film that was originally created by David Sandberg and Lotta Losten. It is just as creepy as the trailer for movie, so it’s no wonder why this is being made into a full on hollywood film!
I have come up with a list of creepy flicks and television shows to get you excited for Lights Out!
1. Are You Afraid of the Dark?
I must admit, as a child this show freaked me out. I have no clue what was going through the minds of the creators of this show, especially knowing children would be seeing this. Thanks to this show I had nightmares for ages. You can find the majority of episodes on YouTube.
2. Nightmare On Elm Street
This is a classic, but a must watch that will for sure make you scared of the dark. Especially, when trying to get some rest. If you have not seen this classic, then stop reading this and go find it somewhere and watch it. It’s about a serial killer named Freddy who haunts the dreams of teenagers and kills them. Definitely a movie to keep you up at night.
3. It Follows
This is one of the most eerie scary movies I’ve seen. In my opinion, I don’t consider it a “horror” film, but more of a thriller. It was uniquely created and I love it for how different it is. After watching this you’ll feel like something or someone may be following you…
4. Before I Wake
Before I Wake is your classic possessed child movie, but the story line behind it is pretty creepy. Of course, the movie itself could’ve been produced better but the fact that the boy’s dreams come true is kind of freaky.
5. Paranormal Activity
I only like the first Paranormal Activity movie. The rest of them are horribly cheesy, and even though the first one is too it’s the best one out of them all. The creepiest part, in my opinion, is the fact that Katie will just stand there and watch her husband sleep. A little creepy…
Last night, I watched The Shallows and I must say it was really good. The majority of shark movies are normally very fake and corny, but this one was pretty impressive. It wasn’t the scariest movie ever, but I definitely jumped a few times. It was very intense and sometimes overwhelming. I feel like there could’ve been a better actress for the part, but Blake Lively did do a pretty good job. I would recommend this to those who enjoy movies that keep you on the edge of your seat. The scenery does not change so beware for those who get bored with movies that focus on one location.
The only thing I did not like about the film is that I feel like there could’ve been more with what they had. It was predictable and at sometimes boring, so I think they could’ve really stretched out the shark attacks a bit more. Overall it was a great film and for those thrill seekers definitely go see The Shallows.

I’ve been working on gathering “creepy” home decor for a while now and I have realized that it is not easy. I have looked high and low for decorations and finally found a few online websites to share with others who may be looking to do the same.
1. Halloween Store (http://www.halloweentownstore.com/page/HS/CTGY/002SpookyDecor)
Here you can find blankets, pillows, candles, lamp shade covers, kitchen supplies, clocks and it keeps going on and on. Some items can get a bit pricey on here, but it is a great outlet for home decor!

Pinterest is one of the easiest ways to find horror themed home decor. While searching for home decor most of the time there is a link connected to the picture of where you can purchase the product. It’s fun and easy!

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great Saturday so far. It’s pretty nasty out and rainy. Today, while in Walmart, a good friend of mine showed me some new Stephen King books they had stocked. I’m sure it is different at every store, but at my local Walmart they had Cujo, Finders Keepers and Desperation. My friend picked up Finders Keepers and decided to pick up Desperation. It seemed very interesting based on the back cover, which read:
“For all intents and purposes, police officer Collie Entragian, chief law enforcement for the small mining town of Desperation, Nevada, appears to be completely insane. He’s taken to stopping vehicles along the desolate Interstate 50 and abducting unwary travelers with various unusual ploys. There’s something very wrong here in Desperation… and Officer Entragian is only at the surface of it. The secrets embedded in Desperation’s landscape, and the horrifying evil that infects the town like some viral hot zone, are both awesome and terrifying. But one of Entragian’s victims, young David Carver, seems to know- and it scares him nearly to death to realize this truth-that the forces being summoned to combat this frightful, maniacal aberration are equal and opposite intensity…”
It seems like a really interesting and different kind of novel and I’m excited to read and share it with you all! Who is your favorite horror/suspense author? I’d love to read some new material from different people.
I thought I’d do a fun post for today and show you guys my (very small) Horror Classics Collection! These figurines are in the Funko© Mystery Mini Boxes! Other than buying them online I have found these in two places, Target and Hot Topic. If you can find them somewhere else please comment below and let me know where you got them! There are only two series so far. Before, I show you the figurines I have I want to let you know I do not have that many figurines yet. I just discovered that Target has these and, sadly, I cannot buy the entire box. Here are the ones I have, so far:
I LOVE this one! This is probably my favorite figurine so far. Not only is Scream one of my favorite movies, but it’s just so cute! I love the details of the knife and the mask is just adorable.
Sam (Trick ‘r Treat)
Sam is one of my all time favorite horror characters! He is a smaller figurine that most, but they didn’t skip any details.
Anyone who loves horror understands why I was so happy to see a tiny little Alfred when I opened up the mystery bag. I love the fact that they tied the raven into it, it just makes the figurine so much cooler that it would have been before.
Creature from the Black Lagoon
I have enjoyed that Series Two includes a lot of older classic horror characters, such as the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
I can’t even describe the joy I felt when I opened up the mystery bag to find Betelgeuse. All I’m gonna say is the lady in the car parked beside me probably thought there was something wrong with me. I was ecstatic. Beetlejuice is one of my ALL TIME favorite movies. It’s just so cute…
That is all the figurines I have at the moment, but trust me I’m planning on getting more! Do you have horror figures? Tell me about it in the comments! I’d love to know where to find other figures!
