Gifts can be a powerful thing, as they are often a physical and tangible representation of something we love (whether it be a movie, video game, or an action-figure of a character we connect too). Even as an adult, I have talked to many peers about Christmas memories from their childhood's that still stand out so vividly. This is due to them receiving a toy that they fell in love with. In fact, many adults (myself included) still purchase collectibles and statues, that are essentially just high-end action figures.
Do you have the urge to put your life in danger? Do you have a morbid curiosity of death and demons? What if I told you that there is a game that can satisfy your craving for the danger and the unknown. There is a game called hide and seek, just like the one from your childhood, but you're doing this alone. Keep in mind you're not completely alone here, you are playing this game with someone and they are not good company to keep. In this game of hiding and seek, you will be playing for your life with a demon that you summon. Try not to lose though, the mess is a pain to clean up.
If you have played the ritual the three kings, then this one is a bit similar to it. If you ever had a burning question for the unknown or even had the urge to seek the truth then you may attempt this ritual. Keep in mind, although the pay off is amazing, the road to it is no simple task and everything is ruled by chance.
Now I know zombies don't exist, only in nature (The Last of Us could happen, who knows?), but ever since I knew what zombies were, I knew I had to prepare for them.
For years, I have been reading and writing zombie apocalypse stories and read up on other types of apocalypses. Then it hit me... HOW DO YOU SURVIVE THE APOCALYPSE?!
(Note: reading "The Cask of Amontillado" by EA Poe is recommended before reading the article in order to understand the lesson fully.)
If you're anything like me, there's a good chance that you are either a horror movie fan or frequently find yourself surrounded by people who are (I am the latter, by the way). These days, horror directors and producers are going to ever-more extreme lengths to satisfy the urges of genre fans, leading to more and more fright-fests on our collective screens every year. I, for one, am not ashamed to admit that some recent horror fare has left me deeply unsettled (think ants on Charlie's decapitated head in Hereditary), and driven me to near insomnia. Since I'm sure I am not alone in feeling that way, I figured I'd share my own battle-tested strategies for getting to sleep peacefully after watching a scary movie. Here's how to do it.

There have been many novels that have been adapted to films and well, we can't cover all of them. The whole point of this article is to have a look at which books we'll need to read in order to study horror filmmaking and adaptation of horror from literature on to screen. As one of the most difficult genres to "get right," horror is massively underrated in the world of literature but massively over-expectant on screen. What you would want to do is find the "fine line" between having a faithful adaptation and making a highly effective horror. There would be things that get changed and altered to make them more suitable for audiences and more effective on screen.
