MCFT: Spyro Reignited, The Rewired Soul and SAO

Sorry it’s been so quiet around here! The wedding wore me out, work has been crazy busy, and now the holidays are right around the corner. Can time slow down please? Anyway, I thought I’d tell all of you some of my favorite things this week that have been occupying my time. MCFT posts are usually 4 or 5 things that I’m loving this week! Here’s 4 things I am loving right now!

Spyro Reignited Trilogy

If you haven’t read my post that is part of The Games That Define Us, you totally should. And of course read the others that are up so far! There’s some really amazing posts this month and I can’t wait to read the rest. Back to Spyro Reignited Trilogy… My wonderful husband knew how much I wanted the new remastered Spyro trilogy, so, of course, he bought it and installed it as soon as he could and I beat the first game in 6 hours. Be on the look out for a Saturday Suggestion featuring the remastered favorite game of my childhood.

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!
