O, Spoopy.  
++ I hope everyone had a nice Halloween, if you celebrated. Mine was pretty chill. I dressed up for part of the day, but I just stayed home, watching some scary stuff, and that was basically it. I do wish that one of these days that I'll be able to do something more festive (going to themed parties, haunted houses, and the like), but I'll have to get invited to these things first or plan way ahead for such ventures. But otherwise, October is the month where I basically just watch my collection of horror movies and television shows, walk around and look at all the spooky displays in stores, and just enjoy the overall atmosphere of the holiday, which I'm perfectly fine with.

++ Speaking of which, I've been wanting to make a post about some of my favorite horror movies/shows/other things in media as kind of a recommendation post, but I procrastinated too long and since it's after Halloween it might be too late. Although I will recommend CryptTV, which is a YouTube channel that features short horror films, all of them pretty unique and many that have a twist of some kind. So if you're a fan of horror you'll definitely enjoy the content there.

++ A new trailer for The Last Of Us, Part II was released, and while it doesn't feature Ellie or Joel it does offer us new characters and phenomenal graphics. Also, it has been confirmed that Laura Bailey is part of the game! I'm so thrilled because, thanks to Critical Role, I've become such a huge fan of hers and I'm so curious as to who the character she plays, because while we see the character she plays there are no names attached. It's just speculation until the game arrives, which I'm more than happy to wait for. I'm so excited for this game.

I’m glad you had a good Halloween...

I think I’m one of the few who does not like Horror movies... my cousin, on the other hand... she loves them so much that it could be enough for the both of us LOL!!!

I'm pretty much the only one of my immediate family who loves horror, lol. It is one of my favorite genres. I watch and consume horror all throughout the year, but October is the month where everything is celebrating horror and that is just my jam.

I didn't celebrate Halloween. It's still not that big here in Germany like in many other countries. Sometimes you can see Kids dressed up and asking for candies but that's all. I used the evening to light up some candles and watching a movie together with my mum. :)

I don't know how it is elsewhere, but Halloween is definitely a big deal here in the US. At least, consumer-wise, it's as big as Christmas because of all the candy and decorations and everything else. I've always been jealous because I grew up not really celebrating Halloween as much as others did, so as an adult I've been wanting to do some of the bigger celebration stuff. But the thing is it's much better to do those things with someone else or in a group, and nobody really wants to do them, which is kinda sad. But at the same time I'm fine with just staying at home and chilling, because dressing up is still fun even if you're not going anywhere. ;)

I'm always down for a horror rec post.

And thanks for the youtube rec. Definitely ready to check some of those out. Some of the scariest horror things I've seen have been youtube shorts.

I'm always amazed at the sheer talent some people have. Someone can make a short film or series on YouTube that is 100% better than what you see in films or mainstream media these days. A short horror film can literally be, like, only fifteen minutes long (or less) and still manage to be more effective or pique an interest more than anything that's released in theaters.
