The horror of August

I am not a hot weather person.  I like cool temps – 55-75 Fahrenheit.  But, it's August, which here in SoCal means it's HOT.  In fact, this week we'll be at 100 degrees.  Yuck.  So I chose the above photo for this blog post to cool things off.  And, in honor of the heat, it's appropriate that we're looking at horror this August!

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty
Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris
Dracula by Bram Stoker
The Ruins by Scott Smith
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
The Hot Zone by Richard Preston
Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier
World War Z by Max Brooks
At The Mountains Of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft

I know the basic premise of Frankenstein, The Exorcist, Silence of the Lambs, Dracula, and Rebecca, but I've never read the books.

I've read The Hot Zone and World War Z.

What about you?  Have you read any of these?  Or seen the movie?  Or both?  Please let us know in the comments!


  1. I read Rebecca earlier this year and reviewed it:

    Frankenstein is a must-must read as Mary Shelley and her mother are among my heroines.

  2. I like the 80’s but definitely not 100... ugh... or humidity! Super cute picture!
