My #Blogtober a.k.a. 🎃 31 Days of Halloween 🎃

Hello, my spooktacular lovelies. As an audiobook blogger who’s passionate about paranormal romance, cosy paranormal mystery and urban fantasy, most of my reviews fit perfectly with this time of year. However, I’ve joined in with #Blogtober this year which is a daily blogging challenge. This means that I’m trying to mix it up with some suitably Halloween-y book tags, memes and discussion posts too this month.

I haven’t ever tried to post every day before but I’ll do my best to keep it interesting.

Hello, my lovelies. Welcome to day 11 of 🎃 31 Days of Halloween 🎃 my version of #Blogtober. Today I’m feeling a bit nostalgic. Let me take you down memory lane with some great classic horror films.

Before Jigsaw and Pennywise, there was Dracula and the Wolf Man. The horror genre dates back to a time before talkies when directors relied on set design, story, and really efficient fog machines to get the goosebumps rising. 😘

I was born in 1971 and my Nan would babysit once a week when my parents went off to play badminton at a local club. When I was old enough she would let me watch old black and white films with her. I get my love of oldies from her. Therefore, this post is just going to feature those classics that were made before I was born. The movies that scared, gripped and entertained me before the advent of colour film.

Starting with the oldest film on this reminiscent journey…

King Kong (1933)

The Hound Of The Baskervilles (1939)

Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein (1948)

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)

The Day of The Triffids (1962)

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to read my nostalgic look back at some great classic horror films.

I really enjoyed going down memory lane writing this post and browsing YouTube. There are lots of classic films from the 70s and 80s that I loved too. Perhaps I should write a post about them too. 😘 Do you remember watching any of these films? Which oldies have you watched that gave you goosebumps? What would your top 5 list of Great Classic Horror Films? Drop me a comment and let me know so that we can chat.

Before you go, you can keep up to date with all things #Blogtober on my specially created page.

About Me

I'm in my late forties, my interests are varied but since menopause hit a few years ago, I find myself becoming a "grumpy old woman" all too frequently - where has my infinite patience gone!?! Lol!
I bought a Kindle in the summer of 2013 and haven't stopped reading since. If you want to know more about me, check out my blog - www.florasmusings.com

  1. Whoa! Blast from the past! I remember watching Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein when I was a kid.

      I have my Nan to thank for getting me into Abbott & Costello. Happy memories!

  2. Can I recommend Arsenic and Old Lace? Cary Grant at his comedic best with a brilliant turn by Peter Lorre.

      I remember watching Cary Grant a lot with my Nan. I’m sure I’ve seen Arsnic and Old Lace but can’t remember the story at the moment.
