HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STEPHEN KING!

I’m not a fan of horror flicks or books. Stephen King is about “It” for me and only ONE of his books/flicks…

I’ve seen a few more but I’m a one-time watcher only. I know people who like to watch them over and over and over. I would not be that person!

I don’t like to be scared and I don’t like those jump-scare movies either. I tried watching those scary movies my kids watch and I jumped so many times I thought I was being electrocuted!

Oh. And I don’t like creepy dolls either. I won’t even go down the doll aisle in the toy section at the store! Nope. Not fucking it. 

I’ve always wondered what it would be like to be one of Stephen King’s kids. I mean seriously, what would you be afraid of??

And I would totally love to see his house at Halloween.
From a distance…

How about you? Any horror fans out there? What are your faves? Movies? Books?
Share in the comments and please don’t let me be the only baby in the group. Somebody else must get scared like I do!

  1. I’m not a huge fan of horror flicks either, but I do like The Shining and most of Stephen King’s novels, especially The Stand. IMO, that is his best work. The original mini-series, starring Gary Sinise, was good too. Happy Birthday, Stephen King!

  2. I read a lot of Stephen King books when I was younger and have to confess I didn’t understand “IT”, and didn’t watch the movie when that came out either. I don’t think I have seen any of his movies except Carrie, unless that book wasn’t by Stephen King in which case I am muddled up a bit.
    I didn’t find most of his books overly scary, but I did get the shivers when reading “Christine”, the one about the bloodthirsty killer car. I liked “The Stand” a lot, but haven’t seen the movie.
    I’ve grown out of that sort of thing I think, these days most of my reading is murder mysteries or humor, with movies the same.

  3. I think Stephen King is a fascinating guy but I’m really not much into horror. I would never watch “It” ‘’cause clowns scare me! I saw “Carrie” decades ago and that was creepy for sure. Never watched any other Stephen King movies except for two that were not horror at all, “The Green Mile” and “Shawshank Redemption.” In fact, “Shawshank Redemption” is a favorite of mine, my husband too, and the first time I saw it I didn’t even know it was a Stephen King movie, it’s so different from the horror movies.

    As for creepy horror movies, no way!! Never saw one Jason movie. No creepy dolls either. I am with you on that! But Alfred Hitchcock made some movies that were great filmmaking like “The Birds” and “Psycho.” So scary. But for horror in general, not a fan!

  4. I can’t stand horror flicks or books. HATE being scared. I’m the person who sees one scene and then refuses to go down to the basement freezer for two weeks! Actually has happened!

    The only King book I’ve read was 11/22/63 because it wasn’t horror. It was about a time traveler and JFK and I really enjoyed it.

    • Omg. You’re like me. I’m not going in the basement… I’m banging on closets, poking brooms under the bed and the shower curtains stay open! – Wow. Another non-scary book to check out. Time traveler books are one of my favorite.

  5. Some of his work is to scary for me, but I loved The Shining. I’ve watched it more than once.

  6. I recall it (Stephen King) doing an interview on Sunday morning and he isn’t fan of horror story. Strange thing I heard that Louisa May Alcott actual want to do horror stories. At time her publisher didn’t think female writer could sell horror stories.
