Hello Dave? Is that Dave?

Well, now that I got that obligatory League of Gentlemen reference out of the way, I just wondered, DaveC, if you have ever read House of Leaves. This is a pretty disturbing book, but a good one.

Well, let's just say that it is an excellent psychological horror novel with more layers than a mutant onion. But the base story, stripping off the layers, is about a house that grows more interior dimensions, rather like a malevolent TARDIS.

House of Leaves, by Mark Danielewski. Get it from the library at the very least. It's a good Halloween read.

Just don't blame me if you want to put measuring tapes all over your house...

Got it in one, DaveC! :D

I love The League of Gentlemen.

Hey, speaking of which, given that it is a mix of comedy and horror elements, try The League of Gentlemen and the, uh, pseudo-sequel, Psychoville.

You should see the 2001: A Space Odyssey version... :lol:

The book is excellent, but it's also pretty scary. House of Leaves.

Only recently re-watched all of them so will give them a miss.

Just finished the second half of ELF and have just started Drag Me to Hell up the scares but with still a bit of humour. :)

That one creeped me out as well. Ringu was also pretty scary....
Oh, and this is a bit embarrasing, but I had problems sleeping after watching The mist :oops:
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

Went for the set of Halloween monsters over the weekend . Watched Dog Soldier for the Werewolves, watched 28 Days Later and Dawn of the Dead for the Zombies and watched Blade for the Vampires . :D Started to watch Insidious but you guys were right and it sucked monkeys. Will have to watch a Ghost and a Witch movie in the next few days :D

I have just bought a film I have never heard of and a title that hints its one of those sooo bad films, its good; "Ninjas vs Vampires". I'll let you know what its actually like when I've watched it. :lol:
