  1. I do love being spooked by a good book or film - Rec is my favourite (the Spanish versions are truly horrifying!). The scariest thing to happen to me is being on a plane when the engine just cut out, it was terrifying and in Asia so I was sure that was the end! But it turned back on again. Phew. Xxx

  3. I don't really like being spooked. I remember when I was little and trick-or-treating and my uncle jumped off their balcony wearing a vampire costume right in front of me. It was very scary, especially since I was a little kid then.

  5. I'm not a fan of being spooked! Okay, so one night I was watching this creepy movie, I can't remember the title, but the whole plot was about this girl alone in a house and there was no electricity, and it was raining outside, the wind blowing like crazy and whatnots, and turns out that it was raining like crazy at the time i was watching the movie as well, and i wasn't alone but everyone else was sleeping already so i was kinda alone, and get this: i was watching this really scary scene where the girl hears noises and goes around the house looking for the source, and there's no light, she even loses her lantern, and there i was watching this, freaking out, AND THE LIGHTS IN MY HOUSE GO DOWN, AND THE STORM OUTSIDE GETS STRONGER, AND THE NOISES. I had to get out of bed and search for a candle, the go OUTSIDE to turn the lights back on. I did all this, but I was so so scared. O_O

  14. I don't really like being spooked. The scariest thing I can think of at the moment is when my husband and I were awakened one night by a lot of noise outside. We called the police and found out they were chasing someone through the woods by our house.

  15. I use to until I had kids and now I can't even watch horror movies. I can still read books but thats about it. I don't think I have ever had a scary thing happen to me.

  16. I was all alone in the house one night and suddenly there was this man standing in the living room staring at me intently. The next moment he vanished into thin air, creepy but all too real.

    I like to be scared. When things jump out at me in a movie or in real life I usually get scared. I also like roller coasters and sky diving. Thanks for the giveaway!

  18. Actually I quite enjoy scary movies though I appreciate life at general being less spooky.
    The scariest thing I remember happening was when I was still a kid and thought I saw someone trying to climb into my room in the evening ... fortunately it turned out that the "hand" I saw on the window had just been a hand-print a friend of mine left there while being over during the day.

  19. I don't like being spooked and the scariest thing that's ever happened to me was a traffic accident where I broke my cheek bone.

  20. I don't love being spooked and the scariest thing that happened to me was dreaming of a clown chasing after me

  21. I don't like being spooked really! the scariest thing that happened to me recently was when I answered the door and a zombie was stood there - it was really the son of a neighbour who fell in the bog behind my garden and was covered in mud and moss and asked would I drive him home!

  22. I don't like being spooked at all!!! I get angry easily even if it were meant as a joke. I love watching/reading scary stories though. The scariest thing that's ever happened to me was when I was still young, I saw my sister playing on our backyard while I was coloring some coloring books but when I came inside our house I saw her with my mom cutting some onions for our dinner, I asked her if she went outside but she said no, she didn't. I don't how to react because I saw her vividly from my side view, wearing exactly the same blue dress my sister is wearing while twirling around. I can't help but think that maybe it was a doppelganger because some other people get strange feelings in our house too. So glad we moved away from there.

    No, I really don't like getting spooked. I'm a big chicken and scaredy cat when it comes to those kinds of things. I once started watching "Jacob's Ladder" in the theatre and had to walk out because I was so freaked out!

  26. I don't like getting spooked at all! I got scared seeing people with eye patches as a kid, because I always imagined grisly eye injuries underneath (still do). I'm Trix on the Rafflecopter...

  27. On the one hand I don't like getting spooked but on the other hand it doesn't stop me from watching scary movies and tv shows or reading creepy books.
    I haven't had anything scary happen to me per se, well nothing thàt scary... but I'm pretty sure my mom's house is slightly haunted. Whenever I visit and stay the night I hear a lot of noises and knocking on the bedroom doors.

  28. Nooo I don't like getting spooked! The scariest thing that happened to me is watching a movie with ghosts when I was younger and then afraid to go anywhere alone hehe.

  30. I don't like being scared. Flying in extreme turbulent in the middle of a storm over mountains was my scariest moment.

  31. I don't think I've ever been spooked. The scariest thing that happened to me was being in a car accident where I flipped and rolled and totaled my car.

  32. I'm the most easily scared person ever, it's ridiculous! People don't need to try to spook me, if I accidentally turn a corner into someone I will scream haha! Such a baby! xxx

  33. I don't like to be scared (but I do recognize when it's a good scare) but I do love horror movies :P

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't like spooky things. The scariest thing to happen to me was getting bit by a dog as a child. I almost fainted from fright.

    ReplyDelete
  35. No. I do not like to be scared. I'm naturally a really paranoid person... too many scary movies as a kid did me in.
    Scariest thing that's ever happened to me was while I was trick-or-treating when I was 6 or 7. I was a pink fairy that year. My mom would wait on the drive way while I went a rang the doorbell. There weren't any other kids with me as I went up to the door. I rang the doorbell and watched as "old" guys looked out. Looking back, I know they were college age guys. When the door opened a monster jumped out and screamed at me. I screamed and ran all the way back to my mom and the guy took his mask off laughing his butt off and gave me some candy. I'm pretty sure I still have nightmares about that.

  36. I hate being scared and I also hate horror movies. I'm a bit boring I think

  38. I don't like to be spooked but I like reading and watching spooky books and movies.

  39. I don't like being spooked at all. The scariest thing that ever happened to me was probably going into the bathroom and seeing an enormous spider crawl over my shoulder in the mirror. I screamed, lots.

  44. I'm not really good with spooky things. I get scared easily so I have a lot of stories oh how I'd start screaming because something moved or made a strange sound... Thanks for the great giveaway!

  45. I don't like super scary (horror) books. I like stuff like Charlie Brown - scary level.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes I like being spooked. The scariest thing that I've experienced is noises and the lights turning off and on from the vacant house next door. The electricity was cut off.

  47. Nope, I don't like being scared at all. When I was little we lived in an old creaky house and I would always think someone was coming up the stairs. One night I swear I saw the ghost of an old man standing there, but I did have an overactive imagination as a kid. Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  48. I don't like being spooked. My scariest experience was almost drowning.

  49. I do like being spooked ! IDK why but I always have. Many moons ago when I was first married to my hubbie(so we are talking 30 years ago) we went to plant a rose bush on my Great Grandmothers grave. She is buried in a very small graveyard out in the middle of no where. My Grandmother, who raised me, was with us. We had gotten a late start as my Grams had been held up @ work. So it was just coming on dusk as we started to dig. A very low register bass voice says "Can I help you"? I swear he sounded like Lurch from the Adams family! My husband , who was only 19 years old, took off like a shot towards the car, leaving my Grams & I standing next to the grave! LOL It was the care taker of the cemetery checking to see what we were doing at dusk with a shovel digging. Needless to say my husband has never lived this down. My Grams laughed and told this story again & again till the day she passed. I too still retell the tale. Irony is that a few years later my husband went to mortuary school and has been a Funeral Director for 25 years now.

  51. Such a great story, it's indeed really funny! Especially his profession of choice afterwards. Thanks for sharing :)

  52. I was a teenager babysitting alone in a very old house. The electricity went out and there were the strangest noises coming out of a guest bedroom. It turns out there were birds in the fireplace chimney.

  53. My fiance is a very large man over 6'4 and yet I can't hear him sneak up on me when I'm in certain rooms, so lately he's been doing that a lot... he also grabbed my ankle under the shower curtain after we saw it in a movie preview! Haha. I don't get scared with movies anymore... I used to though!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Usually I don't really spook. I say hi to the actors in haunted houses. Once though, I went through the one at Universal Studios in LA. They have a part where you walk over a bridge, and hands reach up to grab at your ankles. I've never liked strangers touching me. I was still fighting off bronchitis, and I lost my breath/had to be let out through an emergency exit. Super embarrassing.

  55. I do like being scared, but I haven't had very many scary things happen to me!

  57. Recently my friends and I watched Annabelle. It was late after the movie and we were returning home, the car silent with the guys asleep and me and two other friends tired and not saying anything. The radio just came on very loudly without anyone touching any knobs or buttons and it was so sudden and creepy that we just sat there shocked and in disbelief that no one touched the radio at all. Thank you for the giveaway, enjoy your day. :)

  58. I HATE being spooked. When I was a little kid I had a nightmare about a golden skeleton chasing me through the woods.

  59. I'm not usually spooked. ;) The only really spooky thing that's happened to me is five really weird coincidences that happened on one day... it was like, coincidence after coincidence after coincidence. It was kind of creepy.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I don't like to be scared. The scariest thing that has happened to me was a car accident. I spent the next 20 years refusing to drive on that date.

  61. I don't like being spooked. It annoys me. The scariest thing that happened to me was when I was bitten in the leg by a stray dog when I was 11 and I thought I was going to die of rabies.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I don't particularly like being scared, but I guess I don't mind being freaked out a little. There have been some pretty freaky things happen to me over the years, one thing standing out most is being in a bit of a car accident. Everyone was fine, but it still scared me a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I don't get spooked easily, so I don't really mind the run-of-the-mill scares. My mom was in a really bad car accident when she was pregnant with me, and nearly died during an emergency C-section months later. I had a health-scare as a teen where I could've died. Those were definitely scary incidents.


    But as far as paranormal scares, though, I remember when I as a kid, my mom and grandpa would go grocery shopping every Saturday, while I stayed home with my grandma and took care of her while they were away. My grandpa always wore a distinctive, 1930s-style cap, and when I saw that cap go past the front window to the kitchen-door, I thought that maybe he'd forgot the checkbook again. I went to open the door for him (I didn't know if he had the keys), and when I got there, no one was there. No car in the drive, no hangers on the door; no pamphlets, meter-readers, mailman, nothing.



    Ooh-kay. That was strange.



    That night, my dog went into the kitchen to get a drink of water, and stopped in her tracks at the kitchen arch. She whined and looked terrified for her life, and refused to go near the kitchen for nearly an hour. Given what'd happened early that day, my 6-year-old self was very freaked out. I told my mom about it--she said that every dog our family had ever owned did that once or twice. After my grandma died, though, it's never happened again.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I don't love being spooked, but I can handle it if I happened to. I'm not sure what the scariest thing is that ever happened to me, but the other night I was on a walk with my dog and a few family members in a nature preserve on the edge of town, and suddenly our dog went crazy and we saw some big white shadows and glowing eyes in the grass near us. The shadows started running around the path ahead of us. It was really creepy. I flipped out and was sure it was either coyotes or zombies, or possibly zombie coyotes. Ha. We turned around and took a different path. The next night, we went back just at dusk and ran into a big white house cat that made our dog go nuts in the same way. I think possibly we just saw a couple of cats the night before, but it did scare me and I would swear those shadows were huge that night! ;)

  65. No, I don't like being spooked (except by a movie) or pranked. It is just annoying and not really funny.

  66. My previous house you to creek all the time!

  67. I do enjoy being spooked, but the scariest thing that ever (truth!!) happened to me was working after closing in a locked store, hearing children giggle and seeing the top of a small blond head pass in front of the counter. There was no one besides me in the store, and the sudden silence after the ghostly children was very, very unsettling :O

  68. I don't particularly like being spooked. The scariest thing to ever happen to me was being in a car accident involving a semi truck. Luckily, no one was hurt, though.

    Thank you so much for the giveaway! Fingers crossed. :-)

  69. I love being spooked. I remember watching aliens as a kid and when the alien popped out my cat jumped on my tummy! hahah

  70. I don't like being spooked. The scariest thing that happened to me was when I got lost in the woods with my friend and it was getting so dark I was afraid we would meet some animals or aliens. It was very scary. When we finally found our way out of the woods it was so dark, that after few more minutes you couldn't see your hand in front of you. And the fog was everywhere.

    I can't think of anything scary that has happened.

  72. I do like to be spooked as long as I'm really safe. I think the most scared I've ever been is when a water moccasin slithered near my foot.

  73. No, no, I don't like being spooked, not at all, lol. The scariest thing that's ever happened to me is when I was a little girl I got trapped in an elevator, not fun!
    Thank you for the giveaway and Happy Halloween!

  74. I love to be spooked! The scariest thing that ever happened to me was when I was in either 7th or 8th grade and I went to Halloween Horror Nights with my friend and her sister (as well as her sister's friends). We were walking and I saw another group of my friends so I stopped to say hi and when I turned around the group that I was with was gone! I went to the designated meeting spot for if we got lost and after about an hour when no one showed up I decided to just go through the park by myself. It was scary but fun, especially because I kept getting chased by the chainsaw guys. I eventually was reunited with my friend and her sister. It turned out my friend's sister thought I went with the other group (which I would not have done without saying something) so they didn't even try to look for me!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I don't mind pranks now and then but honestly, I don't like feeling scared. Like coming home to find the door wide open, TV on and signs of cooking dinner in progress but NO ONE at home. True story btw. My housemate decided to borrow something from the apartment upstairs and got distracted.

  77. Probably hearing a person walk around in the hotel I stayed at. It sounded like dress shoes but there was carpet in the room. No one else was in the hall or bathroom. Then I heard a breath in my ear. Very scary!

  80. By a book or movies: Yes spooking is fun. By people I am less fond of it. Scariest thing? Not something I am comfortable discussing-very private.

  81. I love spooky books...so long as they're not too gory.
