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

I found this short story of Poe's creepy and haunting and think it could be made into a psychological thriller as those type of films scare me more than any violence and gore films. A haunted, crumbling mansion sets the scene for this tale as does a gloomy landscape. Decay, death, disease are also key themes of the story and as the story goes on the mental health of the protagonist decays also. There is also a scene of being buried alive. I just think this tale could be made into such a creepy story if it was made right. I know there has been a few adaptations but a psychological thriller version that sends shivers down my spine, makes me jump out of my skin would be a great version.

  1. Great pick! I think a psychological thriller can be also way scarier than one with lots of blood.

  2. Thank you for participating. Aren't they making a movie about The House of Usher right now? I thought so anyway...but it might have just been a weird thought in my head that it should be a movie. Great minds and all...

  4. Edgar Allan Poe is one of my favorite authors- I can't believe I forgot about him! Anything written by Poe would be a perfect Halloween read. Great pick!

  10. I will add this to my TBR :)I agree that psychological thrillers scare me a lot more than the really violent or gory ones, my choice for this week was a psychological thriller as well.

    I am a new Networked Blogs follower, and here's my FF post for this week.

  11. Fall of the House of Usher freaked me out in high school. The whole digging one's way out of the crypt gives me the shivers. Thanks for visiting. Following back!
