Braving New Worlds
What horror worlds do you want to brave? Let us know about horror books, movies, podcasts, or video games you’re looking forward to consuming! (Or would only consume if you were that little bit braver)
Wahey, there, readers! Up next is Lauren @ Northern Plunder and today we’re looking at Braving New Worlds! I’ll be talking (mostly) about horror movies ahaha, but also a little about podcasts? Most of the podcasts I listen to are of people watching and then reviewing tv series (that’s like 90% of my podcasts), but I do like branching out. Well, the podcasts are probably just me listing some that I need to get to – there’s so many I have in my library 😭
There probably won’t be any video games, I think I like watching other people play video games more than me – like listen, when I first played Five Nights at Freddy’s with a friend, we actually threw my phone to the other side of the couch 😂😂 But maybe I’ll try playing a few mobile games and come back to you on a bunch I tried out, what do you think?
If you want more horror moves, check out this post, which is me talking about 31 horror movies. Should I be talking about more horror movies?? Of course I should!!
The Exorcist – this one is most definitely on my list. I’ve a couple of exorcism movies in the past, so I know what to handle, but I do know that this is like the ‘first’ one and wayy more gruesome and violent, so I’m excited to watch it.
Goodnight Mommy – I’ve been wanting to watch this one since the trailer came out (it’s been like 5 years, DB, good one). But this one looks like a super super freaky movie so I am amped for this one. And like I thought the kids were the weird ones, but apparently it’s the mom? So I like that.
In the Tall Grass – This just looks !!!!! ahhh super creepy and I can’t wait!
The Blair Witch Project – I’m a fraudulent lover of horror movies because I have not watched this (neither the old nor new one) but I am making a plan to watch it!
Marianne – I don’t think I really understand this one, but I’d like to watch it.
Everybody’s Dead – I need to listen to all the episodes but I really like it. They talk about a whole bunch of things revolving around the horror theme – and I like that they also talk about horror games; because as I said before – even though I don’t play them, I like to watch other people play them.
Lore – Everytime I look for recs of podcasts, this one is usually in them. But I have not listened to any of them. I plan to rectify that – I think I’ll go through them when I write up my reviews. What interests me is that they talk about true life scary stories – and what’s more scary than real life?
Welcome to Night Vale – I think this is considered a horror podcast? But I do like the whole storytelling aspect and it’s really cool, but also incredibly weird – which is right in my alley (or is it down my alley? I know there’s ‘in the wheelhouse’ – but that’s different)
The Magnus Archives – This is another story-type horror podcast, recommended to me by a friend, and that cover is very cool, which is mostly what drew me to it, I will admit. Like it looks REALLY cool!!
And by mobile games – I mean that I actually just downloaded these today. I am also looking for a good survival/minecraft type game – for IOS, and free 😁 recs appreciated!!
Slender – I just download a random one off the App Store, but that’s the link to the website. Now, I’ve seen tons of these walkthroughs and plays and I love watching them all, but I don’t know how I’ll be actually playing it haha.
Inside (website/Apple) – I don’t think it’s available on Google Play. But I looked at the trailer and decided to not download it – because it featured a kid and I was like “KIDDIE!!! Don’t get into trouble!!! and it showed the kid swimming in open water, so, of course I though sharks and everything. But then I went back and downloaded it.
So that’s all of the horror/spooky things I’m interested in getting into!! Have you watched/listened/played any of them? Have any recommendations for me? Chat to me down below in the comments! I love chatting to you all 😁
