Serious literature is great, but sometimes a little spoof never hurt anyone either! I’ll be really honest, I don’t do scary. I love true crime, mystery, or suspense but a big HELL NO to thrillers. As much as I’d like to read some Stephen King, I just don’t think it would be a good idea. I already don’t sleep enough as it it.
That being said, I could read Goosebumps books when I was younger … during daylight hours. Maybe some Nora Roberts as JD Robb … again during the day. I don’t like being scared just for the sake of it. This may stem from my early childhood when I saw Chucky while my babysitter’s teenage son and his friends were watching it and I was ruined from there on out. Or I’m a wuss. We may never know.
While the the thriller genre isn’t my bag, I do enjoy the festivity and fun of the Halloween season. I like the silly spookiness of Hocus Pocus, the creepy cobweb decorations, and pumpkins carved as jack’o’lanterns. I love dressing up, seeing kids in their costumes, and
eating passing out candy. Just don’t take me to a haunted house. Ever.
So that I can have the best of both worlds and get into the Halloween spirit, here are 7 spooky spoofs to make you laugh!
