So I did a thing today. I spend most of it watching old Hammer horror movies. Every once in a while, it’s good to put on some vintage scares, although these movies seem fairly tame compared to more modern movies. Some of the special effects were a bit cheesy and dated, to say the least. But I still think that sometimes what you think you see is scarier than what is actually shown. In other words, you don’t have to be explicitly graphic and gory to be scary. Sometimes, it’s all about mood and setting and atmosphere rather than blood splatter and guts flyin’.
I guess I got a bit of a head start on October and Halloween, but it was a change of pace. I may have to do this again next Saturday.
