Feature and Follow Friday



I am participating in Feature and Follow Friday once again, a weekly meme designed to help like-minded bloggers connect. Hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read, this meme always has an interesting question or two that needs to be answered. This week's all-important question is:

Q: What book do you think would make a great Halloween movie? Please explain in graphic detail of goriness...


Ooh, Halloween is coming already. Okay, I have a little difficulty trying to think which great horror novels haven't been made into films at one point or another, so maybe I should start thinking about trashy ones with a whole lot of gore ...

Damn, I was going to nominate PIN by Andrew Neiderman for the scene where the hero hacks his sister's lover to death, but it turns out that has already been made into a (long forgotten) scary movie. Hmm, so what else can I nominate? Okay ... I know its really a kids book and there isn't much gore, (the fear being largely psychological,) but I think The Babysitter by RL Stine would make an interesting movie. They might have to up the gore, sex and swearing to make it appeal to anyone over the age of fourteen though.

What book would you/did you nominate?

  4. Those both sound pretty creepy! And if the first has a film version that's long forgotten, well Hollywood's all about the remakes these days, right? :D New follower via GFC. My FFs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Friday! :D
