5 Freaky Faves: Scary Shows

5 Freaky Faves: Scary Shows

For the month of October, I am pulling away from my regular 5 Fandom Friday and Saturday Suggestion posts. Every Friday for the month of October I will be presenting my 5 Freaky Faves in honor of Halloween! This week’s 5 Freaky Faves are my favorite binge-worthy scary TV shows!

The Haunting of Hill House

By far my favorite show on Netflix this month has been The Haunting of Hill House. It’s moody, full of horror aesthetic, and beautiful cinematography that takes you between the past and present. It’s been years since I have been this frightened of a TV show. My husband and I just love it. We binged the first five episodes on our one year anniversary on a whim, and we don’t regret a single minute of it. Even when we had to turn every light on in the house just to get into bed after an episode…

Bates Motel

Bates Motel takes it’s creepy cues from the movie it was based on and spins a modern prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho tale. Freddie Highmore is in one of his best roles as Norman Bates with Vera Farmiga as his mother Norma. The two have mad chemistry in this chilling psychological horror Netflix drama.

American Horror Story

You knew American Horror Story would make this list. If you haven’t watching any of the seasons already, this is the time to do it! The first season, affectionately called Murder House by fans, would be a great start to your Halloween week. Try it; you may find yourself binging up to the latest season Netflix has to offer.

Scream: The TV Series

As a fan of campy horror, I was excited to give this Scream TV series a shot and I have zero regrets. It’s full of that campy horror nostalgia while still being set in present day. While still very much a slasher horror series, the stories are great for those that miss those good old slasher flick days. With two seasons up on Netflix, Scream is perfect to binge this spooky holiday season.

Black Mirror

Another favorite scary show of mine is Black Mirror. Unfortunately, I find it hard to binge because it leaves me so emotionally drained at the end of most episodes. Haunting and scary may not be what some people would use to describe Black Mirror, but that’s exactly what it is. Incredible stories that last for a single episode will enthrall you, make your heart race, fill your eyes with tears, and leave your knuckles white as you hang on for the wild ride called Black Mirror on Netflix.

What binge-worthy scary TV shows do you like to watch during the month of October? Tell me in the comments!

Question of the Month: October 2018 edition

Question of the Month: October 2018 edition

Super excited to see all of your answers this month!

Later Levels

It’s time for a new Question of the Month, one which will see us attempt to answer a quandary that has been puzzling the gaming community since they first realised that eating mushrooms could have unexpected benefits. But first let’s find out who won September’s challenge!

The winner

Last month, Ian from Adventure Rules asked: You’ve been tasked with making the Ultimate Video Game, but there’s a catch – you can only piece it together from parts of other releases. You can choose separate titles for visual design, sound design, storytelling, and gameplay. What four games would you use to make the Ultimate Video Game? He reviewed all the answers submitted in response and here’s his judgement:

“Yikes, talk about a difficult decision! There have been lots of good submissions, and I loved seeing the unique direction that all of the different bloggers considered. Some folks made their

5FF: Asuna Yuuki’s Mix Tape

5FF: Asuna Yuuki’s Mix Tape

If you’re participating in The Nerdy Girlie’s 5 Fandom Friday, you may have noticed a few of us have made some DLC’s (downloadable content) to complement the already lengthy blog prompt list courtesy of The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. You can check out my first DLC for 5 Fandom Friday: the GG Pack (the Geeky Gal Pack)!

Among all of the prompts listed, I really loved the idea of creating a playlist for character. You may have seen Padme’s playlist from a couple of week’s ago. Of course, I can’t just pick one so we’re back with another playlist for one of my favorite characters: Asuna Yuuki. More than just Kirito’s love interest, Asuna kicks ass in the first season as second in command of the Knights of the Blood Oath. Not only can she cook with the best of them, but she also becomes one of the fiercest players in the game, earning the nickname “Lightening Flash.” I can only hope her mix tape does her justice.
