Was thinking about Jump Scares the other day, because… well you know. And remembered one that really freaked me out back in the day.
Ceature feature film offerings from the noughties
The iconic scene where the shark makes its first appearance while Brody is shovelling bloody chum into the water.
Viruses, parasites and fungi all make the species jump from animal to human on a regular basis – this is known as Zoonosis
The last few years have been great for adaptions of Stephen King’s work. With plenty of new releases and plenty more in the works.
The editing, sound mixing and Score all come together to produce a scare that makes me jump no matter how many times I’ve seen it.
There’s no way I could write an exhaustive list of all the best horror novels ever written. But here’s my (rather eclectic) attempt at recommending some gooduns.
I like to think of them as B-Movies with a budget. Kind of like comfort food, probably not all that good for you – but enjoyable all the same.
There’s a couple of other contenders – so you can’t make me stick to it! But I think my favourite jump scare is the “Nurse Scene” in the Exorcist III.
I’ve read a lot of zombie novels over the years but, The Rising is still one of my favourites and I reread it regularly.
