Trying to put together a mega-list of horror blogs for October. I’ve got 73 so far, and I’m going to try to wade through the blogs I’m following to find any others I may have missed. If you’ve got a horror blog, and would like yours added, feel free to drop me a line! I’m always more than happy to find more horror blogs to follow! :D
Twice now I’ve had these weird dreams where there was a new episode of Gravity Falls, but everyone had different voices that sounded terrible.
Like…Robbie sounded like Eddie Deezen.
And that just does NOT work.
koputusx: omg, your avatar.(hides under bed)
blazing-forge: I like the Owlcat's new Zalgo eyes. :D
psychopomf: You know, for all the shitty stuff about Tumblr, I really like how sudden it seems like everyone's favorite holiday is Halloween. Christmas has had it good for too long.
That’s actually my favorite part of tumblr, to be honest.
For as much more meaning as other holidays may have, I think that, bar none, Halloween is the most fun. Not only do people get the opportunity to dress up and become their favorite characters from anything they choose, but it’s a time for the horror genre to actually have center stage for an entire month.
Horror films and haunted house attractions allow us to be scared, but safely, and I think there’s something very liberating and cathartic about that. Halloween also gives us the chance to act out, and be ridiculous, or be creepy and scary, and not have any lingering social consequences for it. It’s very creative and free, and there’s such a profound kinship between people during this time that most never even seem to realize.
I think it’s that kind of camaraderie that makes horror fans some of the most loyal and dedicated fans out there, because every time you watch a horror film, you get a fleeting sense of Halloween for the 83+ minutes that you’re watching it.

starspecks: I keep hearing about a documentary of an Asylum where patients were treated badly and just left there to rot and the building in general weren't maintained at all. Do you know the name of it?
You might be thinking of either Willowbrook, or Pennhurst (sad that there’s more than one. And I’m pretty sure there’s more than these two, as well). Let’s see…there’s Pennhurst (2008), and one of the two is mentioned in the documentary, Cropsey (2009). There’s also 1968’s Suffer the Little Children, but I’m not sure what institution that’s about.
I know there used to be a documentary on Netflix, but for the life of me, I can’t recall the name. I can even picture the cover image in my head, too, but I don’t remember the name at all… :(
