Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Things That Give Me the Creeps in Books and/or Movies

Halloween TTT

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:

Halloween themed freebie — your choice (ie. 10 best ghost stories, 10 things that scare you in books, 10 literary Halloween costumes, 10 vampire novels, 10 books that WILL scare you, 10 non-scary books for Halloween, 10 scariest covers, etc.)

10 Things That Give Me the Creeps in Books and/or Movies (I don’t want you to think I’m a pansy. These things may creep me out, but it doesn’t mean I don’t want or read these kinds of books – okay, except mannequins. Keep those things away from me)

  • Dolls/mannequins that come to life
  • Possession
  • The person looking through the window/watching you when you don’t know it
  • People eating other people and/or using their body parts for other things (like when people wear someone else’s face *shudders*)
  • The dark
  • The person who is always facing away from you and never turns around
  • People without faces
  • The monster under your bed
  • Little kids singing – you know the kind I mean
  • When things come out of the water – in a lake or a bath

What things creep you out in books or movies?
