Fandom Friday: 2 My Must See List of Halloween Movies





Follow Friday is hosted by The Nerdy Girlie & Super Space Chick


I love this weeks topic because my October is consumed with Halloween/Horror themed viewing! On my twitter this month you will see me using the hashtag #31In31 I’m sharing my viewing journey. I’m on number 14 right now. Her are my five picks for Must See Halloween Movies



Night Of the Living Dead

On Netflix Now!


I prefer the classic black and white version of this movie. It really stands the test of time and continues to thrill me year after year.


Nightmare Before Christmas

On Netflix Now!


I just watched this for the gazillion time. This movie also goes onto my must watch Christmas movie list as well.





This is a no brainer! The classic movie, scary mask and awesome performance by Jamie Lee Curtis. I usually save this one for Halloween Night.



Resident Evil



I’ll confess I’ve never played this video game. What drew me to the movies was Zombies of course! I’m thinking of spending a whole day bingeing on the entire movie series.



Curious George



This is my second year watching this adorable little show. It capture the feel of Autumn in a small time and even has a little bit of spooky mystery. Very fun!


I’m looking forward to seeing everyone else's choices. Happy Friday!

HallowReads: Zombies! Braineater Jones by Stephen Kozeniewski

Goodreads Link
I received a complimentary download of this book in exchange for a review.

Just when you think there is nothing new in the undead world along comes Braineater Jones. I tagged this Zombie Noir from the very opening pages. What I loved most about this book was the atmospheric dialogue and the diary format. Ina series of journal entries we learn about our main character when he wakes undead in a pool with a gaping hole in his chest and no idea who he is.

After a quick escape from some thieving thugs, Jones finds his new state is a turn off to even the poorest bum in 1934’s skid row like environs. The quest is on to find out who he is and who killed him. Oh yes and the quest for some Brains!
This book really reflects the level of research Stephen immersed himself in. The dialogue, locations and most importantly Jones’s narrative gives the reader a snapshot of a period of history, and the action makes this a definite page turner. I also enjoyed how the story elements were wrapped up. A real treat for zombie fans!
