My Top Ten Horror Movies, Top 5.

Hello readers, welcome to the second part of my personal Top Ten Horror Movies.

Here’s the post with the movies from 10 to 6, where you can find titles like The Ring or The Others.

5) The Woman in Black (2012)

The woman in black is still my favourite ghost story. I’ve read the book and it’s good as the movie, even if they are different in multiple ways. Also, can we talk about Daniel Radcliffe? It’s fantastic in this gothic/horror roles.

4) The conjuring (2013)

Could I write a Top Ten horror without mentioning The Conjuring? Even if I watched it during the afternoon, I was terrified.

Did you know that this year, the Halloween special episode of Ghost Adventures will be about the house that inspired The Conjuring?

3) The Conjuring 2 (2016)

The second movie in The Conjuring series is even more terrifying than the first.

2) The Final Destination series (2000 – 2011)

Maybe, this series isn’t exactly horror, is more splatter, but it’s still one of my favourite series of all the time. I particularly like the link that exists between the characters or the deaths, and how the last movie closes the cycle. And can I hear a wahoo for Tony Todd? (Yes, this is a Good Omens reference)

1) Krampus (2015)

Krampus is like Nightmare Before Christmas: it’s a horror movie based on Christmas, so when you can watch it? At Halloween or at Christmas? Both is good. Krampus begins like a Christmas comedy, with family drama and Christmas songs. But remember that he sees you when you’re sleeping…

And that’s the end! Have you some movie reccomendations for me?

My Top Ten Horror Movies, 10 to 5

Hello readers!

As Halloween approaches, I had the necessity to make my personal Top Ten of horror movies. This is the first part.

I’m a strange fan of horror: I love to watch movies, tv shows and reality tv shows like Ghost Adventures, but at the same time, it’s difficult for me to find a book or a movie that I like and that scares me, so most of the time I’m disappointed. If a movie can reach my personal Top Ten, is really the best.

I will not include classics like The Addams family or NBC, only because I want to talk about underrated/adult movies.

10) The Ring (2002)

The ring was the first horror movie I’ve watched in a movie theatre. I remember I was 15 years old, and I’ve watched it with my friend. Both of us were so terrified that we lock our VHS and video recorder in the closet for months. I’ve watched again after many years, and I fell asleep.

9) The ward (2010)

Without talking about Amber Heard, the main actress, this movie is great! I love all the plot twist!

8) The Others (2001)


At first, I can’t stand this movie, I don’t even remember why. Now is one of my fave, even if I know how it ends.

7) The skeleton key (2005)

What I like most about The Skeleton Key are the locations. And Kate Hudson, she’s one of my fave actresses.

6) Errementari (2018)

Errementari is a great underrated horror movie made in Spain, I watched it last year and I was immediately a fan. You can read my review here.

And that’s the first part of the post, in the next days I will post the top 5 horror movies!

Have you seen these movies? Are you a horror fan?

The Halloween Song Book Tag

Hello readers!

I recently found this tag on Chapter Malliumpkin, but it was originally created by A beautiful chaos of books.

I loooove Halloween songs, so this is the perfect tag for me! I will include some of my favourite songs!

1. Thriller: A book that was an absolute page-turner


Despite the ending, that I hated, The Lost History of Dreams is the perfect book for this prompt.

 2. Somebody’s watching me: A book that gave you the serious creeps


I recently finished this short story (about 50 pages), and I’m not easily scared, but something in this book, with a cursed mirror really has given me creeps.

3. Vampire: A book you hated so much it was soul-sucking i.e incredibly tedious to get through


I chose this book only for the Vampire of the prompt, because there are a lot of books that I hated. I hated this “feminist retelling” of Dracula for the disrespect of the author against Stoker, the errors and typos, and the stupidity of Mina, the main character.

 4.I put a spell on you: A book featuring witchcraft or magic


I’m still reading this cozy mystery ( I think is my first in this genre!) and look at the cover! So witchy, perfect for Halloween!

5. This is Halloween: Your favourite treat/ snack to eat while reading

I don’t drink or eat when I’m reading, unless I’m reading my e-reader when I’m dining alone.

6. Timewarp: “Let’s do the time warp again” What book/ or books do you like to return to at this time of year?

In fall and winter, I prefer to read horror (obviously) and classic books.


7. Hungry like the wolf: A book you loved so much, you devoured


I devoured The Ugly Princess, and it makes me so sad to know that is an underrated book!

 8. The Addams Family: A book featuring a dysfunctional family


The family of Edgar Allan Poe was dysfunctional, and The Raven’s tale shows it very well.

9. Scary monsters (and super creeps): A book genre that you are scared or intimidated to pick up

Any Russian classic, like War and Peace, or Anna Karenina, I’m sorry.

10. the twilight zone: A book with a completely different and unique premise


Isn’t the title itself unique and original?

And we are at the end of this tag! I tag everyone who wants to do it, but now, here’s my favourite Halloween song!

5 star, netflix series, non fiction, review

Review tv series: Lore, season 1

Hello readers!

This is the perfect time of the year to post this review and to watch this show!


Title: Lore

Author/Producer: Aaron Mahnke, Gale Anne Hurd, Geln Morgan, Ben Silverman, etc…

Date of premiere: October 13, 2017

Total seasons: 2

Found on: Amazon Prime Video

On July 27, 2019, the series was cancelled.

My Rating: 4,5/5


I didn’t know this podcast before found it on Prime Video. I’m always interested in a good documentary, so I watched the first season, and I really liked it.

This series explores a lot of dark subjects, like the German legend of The Wolfman, or haunted toys, toys like dolls. (I’m really scared of dolls)

This must say: it’s absolutely not a series suited for children, teenagers or people easily scared, because each episode narrates a real event with real people. Each episode is a mix of animation (like the trailer you can see above), dramatisation with actors and, when possible, real photos or real videos.

That’s what makes this series really scary.

There are only 6 episodes in the first season, and my favourites are the very first one, about the mistakes of bury people alive, the fourth (spirit seance) and the last. The last one, about the haunted doll named Robert was really well done and super creepy.

Please, be also aware that each episode can talk about other things than the main subject, so there are a lot of trigger warnings like suicide, homicide, blood, death of relatives, corpses, capital execution.

The second season is focused on evil people who had lived in the past, like the Countess Bathory.

I enjoyed this series because I’ve learned a lot from it, and the narrator does a great job to introduce us to the story.

It’s perfect to watch during Halloween season…

meme, wrap up

Wrap Up: September 2019

Hello readers!

And finally, it’s October, the best time of the year, because… Halloween!!


I’ve read a total of 11 books in September: 1 DNF (and it’s a hyped book…) and 3 books in Italian.

I’ve also finished The AtoZ reading challenge!

5 Stars:


Do you think I’ve cried reading this little book? Yes, I’ve cried a lot. Thanks to Edelweiss for sending me an e-book copy.

3 stars:

I had great expectations from Podkin One-ear, but it was disappointing. The Male hero is glorified even if he doesn’t nothing, and his sister who is brave and wise is treated as a secondary character.

UnEnchated was my choice for the AtoZ reading challenge. I’m not a fan of retelling or modern fairy tale, but this one is funny and readable.

2 stars:

I love so much the cover of Limelight: unfortunately, the “mystery” is pretty simple and predictable. I don’t think I will continue this series.

Faraday & Frankenstein is a short story (31 pages) that sounds like a sequel to Frankenstein, but it was without meaning, pointless.

How to write a boring steampunk story: The shadow revolution is the perfect example. The male MC was boring, but I’ve loved to death Kate, the female sidekick. She’s amazing.

1,5 stars:


I’ve read Suicide Forest because I was interested in the 4th book of this series, Doll Island. It’s a series based on the most haunted places in the world, but this book is full of stupid characters who made stupid decisions. I won’t read Doll Island.



Shame on me. I tried, but on page 60 I decided that the writing of Sawkill Girls was not for me.


And that was my reading month! How was yours? Have you read some of these books?
