👺👾👹 Creepy Crawlies that Can Stay on the Page

  1. Those things in the Long Room from The Siren and the Specter by Jonathan Janz literally haunt me. This is such a good haunted house book, and the atmosphere of the Long Room still sends chills down my spine when I think about it!
  2. Whatever those things are in Contagion by Erin Bowman also creeped me the heck out! I don’t remember them having been given a name in the book, but yea they creeped me out a lot and definitely do not want to encounter them IRL. Please stay away. The number of NOPE comments in my eBook copy of this book make me laugh.
  3. Pennywise from IT by Stephen King (and honestly all clowns) can stay the hell away from me! I’ve tried reading this book and watching this movie so many times, but I am terrified of clowns and I just can’t do it. When I was like 5 years old a (to my memory) drunk clown was all creepy laughing at the Circus and handed me a balloon… and it popped in my face, resulting in intense clown fear. NOPE.
  4. Wendigo from Algonquian folklore, which is a mythical man-eating monster or evil spirit native to the northern forests of the Atlantic Coast and Great Lakes Region of both the United States and Canada. [Source] I first saw them in an episode of Supernatural and kind of became obsessed… so creepy.

  1. Oh, clowns for sure! Whoever thought they are funny should get themselves checked out!

    Wendigos were a big thing in my fave video game The Secret World. There was a whole story line set in a town that had very strong Stephen King vibes, spiced up with some native american indian mithology. Pretty awesome! But yea, don’t want to run into those things fo sho!

    1. Clowns are literally the worst and I don’t understand how people aren’t freaked out by them! I had an acquaintance dress up as one for Halloween one year and find it HILARIOUS to make me cry… My friends all told him to gtfo. Jerk

      Oooh I am going to check the game out!

  2. No shame to say I refuse to ever go near whatever was in Contagion by Erin Bowman. My friend showed me a snippet while she was reading and…yeah. Solid and firm hard pass there. Lol. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind being around a wendigo. I feel like they could play a great game of poker. xD

  3. Clowns are the worst! They creep me out like no tomorrow!

    I actually played a decision-based horror game with my brother one time, that has Wendigos in it! I honestly had trouble sleeping that night 😬

  4. I love wendigos! Ok… not love but I *am* fascinated by them because I love anything to do with folklore and mythology. I remember them from Supernatural but there is also a movie called Ravenous which involves them. It’s very creepy!! There’s also a horror video game called Until Dawn and it’s too intense for words!

      1. It’s more the love of the myth! I definitely wouldn’t want to meet one😛 I didn’t even play Until Dawn but watched my husband play and was like… how can you stand to play without peeking through your fingers?!

      2. I’ve not heard of that one but even if I had I think it sounds like one that would scare me! I remember when Silent Hill cake out and me and my equally wussy friend tried playing! I was impressed by the story though!
