Bloody Horowitz 
I read the book Bloody Horowitz by Anthony Horowitz. This has 12 different stories in it that do not have happy endings. One of the stories in this book was about a guy named Henry who accused Darren Shan of stealing his story and rewording parts of it in his own words. Then Henry tries to murder Darren Shan by sending him a letter with poison on the envelope. Henry hopes Darren Shan will open the letter and lick the poison off the envelope before sending him a letter back. Darren Shan receives Henry’s letter in the mail. It is all over the news that Darren Shan was murdered by licking poison off an envelope that one of his fans sent to him. You have to read the story to find out what happens next.

 This was my favorite story in this book because I thought it was weird how someone would try to murder another person by putting poison on an envelope. This was a scary, yet very interesting and fun book to read. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a bunch of different scary stories without happy endings.

Warm Bodies
Whether caused by a plague or a curse, zombies roam the earth.  Humans build their outposts. And the two groups are at war.  R is a zombie and this is his story.  Yes he hunts humans, shuffles around aimlessly, stands like a statue for hours and randomly falls into deep sleeps but he is also different.  There is a spark of awareness in him that makes him question, doubt and dream.  One day Julie, a human, enters his life and he instinctively must protect her at all cost.  Changes occur gradually, she becomes his world and it is a world where anything is possible.  This post-apocalyptic story has you cheering for the most unlikely hero.  His innocent charm makes you forget that he is a monster, or is he?  It is compelling and thought provoking which gets you through the gore.

Shutter

 This is one creepy, scary movie.  I watched the original Thai movie which was made in 2004 and one of the U.S. remakes  from 2008. The Thai  version is much darker but they are both edge of your seat psychological thrillers similar to “The Grudge.”
A young couple is driving down a dark, disserted road and they hit a young woman. In shock and confusion, they drive away instead of stopping  and so begins the guilt and fear.  Shortly after the accident, the young man, who is a professional photographer, begins to notice strange visions  through his camera lens and white streaks across his photos.  The couple also begins to feel a presence in his apartment and bizarre things begin  to happen.  As they start investigating the weirdness intensifies and shocking secrets immerge.  Don’t want to give away too much but it is a film  that will keep you up at night, it is hard to forget and like “Psycho” it will have you peeking into dark places.
