31 Nightmares 2018: The 16th

Anniversaries

Today this modern classic of the horror genre turns 26 years old.

This was a favorite of myself and my cousin when we’d go through our tradition of horror movie marathons. (Which was pretty much every time we got together.) It’s still as eerie and wonderful now as it always was.

A few years back, when we spoke of getting together again, (both of us now much older) just what movie do you think was at the top of our list? Oh yes. & I plan on enjoying it again shortly.

One thing that always stuck with me? The story is first told to the main characters by a janitor in a lovable, sort of gossipy way—-a lot like in the schools I grew up in while tagging along with my grandmother at her own janitorial occupation.

Ghost stories were a favorite topic amongst these wonderful women who my grandmother befriended. It’s no wonder I grew up with a taste for such things.

Is there an urban legend or ghost story in your area? Care to share? 😁

Tonight, yet another soon-to-be addition to the horror art over at my gallery.

Howl At the Moon

It’s based on a combination of nightmare and actual story between old friends. My best friend’s mother once told us a story that involved her and her sister seeing some hideous creature late at night. The story always terrified us as kids. Sweet dreams.
