Get Spooked by Old Classic Horror

October as we known includes Halloween and people love a good scary story this month. While we are inundated with scary movies and shows, this month is also a good time to remember the old classic horror stories.

Have you seen the new remake of the movie “It?” Whether you have or are still planning to, read Stephen King’s novel “It” and see how it compares to the movie. Was the old movie better or truer to the story, or are you a fan of the new one?

One of the classic writers of short story horror is Edgar Allan Poe. The story of the “The Tell Tale Heart” or “Pendulum” is always good for a quick case of goosebumps or chills down the spine.

I’m sure as a child we all read “Scary Stories We Tell in the Dark” by Alvin Schwartz. Did you know there’s a volume 2 and 3 as well? Maybe share some of these spooky tales with your kids if they like spooky stories.

If you like supernatural scary, grab a copy of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” and sit back and read with all the lights on. After than pick up a copy of “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley.
