“Doctor Sleep” is visually faithful to Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece “The Shining,” but it’s more like a course correction than a sequel, bringing the saga back in like with Stephen King’s original vision.
Love a good scare but looking something with a bit more length? (And let’s be honest, who isn’t??)
While there are tons of great scary movies of all kinds streaming this month we’d like to recommend some terrifying TV options as well!
These shows are perfect for the Halloween season…
The Haunting Of Hill House
A family of seven temporarily moves into Hill House, hoping to fix it up and resell it just a few weeks later. But some of them end up staying forever…
This reimagining of the classic Shirley Jackson gothic horror novel splits its time between 1992 and 2018, telling the Crane family’s entire saga. Fans of This Is Us will recognize how the flashback structure offers unique dramatic insight into how the adult children ended up. Seriously, bring your tissues. However, no slow cooker was ever as dangerous as the horrifying Bent-Neck Lady, and this series doesn’t skimp on the scares. Not just one of the best horror shows but one of the best TV series of the past few years, period.
Streaming on Netflix.
The Twilight Zone
The original is still the greatest!
Not every episode of the sci-fi anthology series is scary, but the horror ones are some of the best half hours of all time. Check out these classics for timeless fright:
- The After Hours
- Living Doll
- To Serve Man
- The Dummy
- It’s A Good Life
- And When The Sky Was Opened
- Terror At 20,000 Feet
- Nightmare As A Child
- Perchance To Dream
- Nothing in the Dark
- Come Wander With Us
- The Purple Testament.
Streaming on HULU, Prime Video, & Netflix.
This French frightfest is brand new, and it’s already one of the most unnerving shows ever made!
Novelist Emma Larsimon is a genuine phenom whose twisted, imaginative stories about a witch named Marianne have sold millions of copies. The only problem is, the stories aren’t coming from her imagination… she doesn’t know how, but the grotesque horrors she has been describing for years have been real all along.
For real, this show is *not* for the squeamish! (Or for those afraid of having to read subtitles.)
Streaming on Netflix.
Inside No. 9
This British anthology show is more along the lines of gallows humor than horror — but it has plenty of creepy short stories to keep the biggest franchise fans titillated.
Streaming on HULU.
The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina
This new version of the classic Archie spinoff Sabrina The Teenage Witch really leans into the darker side of witchcraft lore, complete with demons, blood magic, and The Devil himself. Those looking for the family friendly TGIF sitcom may want to give this one a pass…
Streaming on Netflix.
What kind of horror stories are the scariest? The ones that are true! This documentary series examines real cases that inspired or were inspired by monster mythology and folklore. Unfortunately what real people in the grip of fear have done is sometimes far more disturbing than any fantasy…
Streaming on Prime Video.
The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell
Christine McConnell pairs a home DIY and cooking show with a scripted series full of ghosts and monsters. Think Martha Stewart Living for the Halloween crowd. It’s a ghoul thing.
Streaming on Netflix.
Two Sentence Horror Stories
This crowdsourcing-inspired anthology turns the simple horror meme into a series of fun, surprising vignettes.
Streaming on Netflix.
Ash VS Evil Dead
Bruce Campbell reprises his role as Ash Williams, hero of the Evil Dead and Army Of Darkness, in a show that manages to capture the manic energy and old school practical effects of the beloved franchise.
It’s gory, goofy, and impossible to predict — heck, it may even give you a good scare!

Calling all ghouls, goblins, and Halloween freaks!
There are plenty of great destinations to celebrate the spooky season — but this year, you might want to head to sunny Los Angeles, California.
Why, you shudder to ask? Because the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride has completely reimagined its haunted experience for 2019, and it sounds like a positively terrifying good time!
Returning to Griffith Park for the 11th consecutive year Saturday, September 28 – Saturday, November 2, this year’s attraction will transform the hills of El Lay into Midnight Falls: an eerie and mysterious fictitious village set in 1985, where time stands still and its undead citizens roam free.
Visitors will get to explore (if they dare, obvi) some of Midnight Falls’ most ghastly locations; including Midnight Falls Town Square, where the town’s Halloween Festival comes to life with glowing orange lights, Jack O’ Lanterns, food and beverage booths, and high-spirited entertainment.
(But beware of this pageant queen lurking in the shadows…)
After that, guests are encouraged to make a trip to the Midnight Mortuary Haunted House — which, according to a press release, has been “owned and operated by the Marlow family for decades.” Guests can tour this local funeral parlor and discover its “sinister secrets”… hopefully without ending up in one of the caskets.
Next, tourists can head over to Roadkill Ranch, a hair-raising open-air maze nestled the forest just on the outskirts of Midnight Falls. Apparently, this is where “mysterious ranch hands” collect The 101’s deceased varmints — but their questionable methods of body disposal will probably come back to bite them. Literally, most likely.
Aside from that, guests can go trick-or-treating inside 12 different local Midnight Falls homes. Just don’t expect to get too many treats, as the residents of these homes have far more tricks.
Then, of course, there’s the crowning attraction: the Haunted Hayride. Here, guests can embark on “a thrilling adventure of horrors afflicting the town,” which evidently came from a dark portal opening somewhere in the shadows and “spilling hideous creatures from its rotted mouth.” Um…
But that’s not all! Visitors also have the option to participate in three individually-themed, short-play escape rooms at an additional cost of $5.00 per game!
Think you’re brave enough to pay Midnight Falls a visit this year? Get your tickets as early as next week!
Tickets go on sale August 9, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. PST at LosAngelesHauntedHayride.com. Pre-sale discounts will be available August 9-16 ($10 off), August 17-23 ($7 off) and August 24-31 ($5 off). Regular prices will take effect on September 1, which range from $34.99-$109.00 per person.

Halsey isn’t here to be your sweet dream… she’s much more interested in being your worst nightmare!
The pop star dropped the music video for her new single Nightmare on Friday, and it contains no shortage of appropriately unsettling imagery.
Some of these highlights include multiple shots of Halsey’s blood-soaked lips as she discusses the “sweet” taste of blood and, of course, the 24-year-old decked out in a leathery, BDSM friendly ensemble.
But the video offers more than just devilish delights. The New York native also managed to sprinkle in a few socially charged visuals, too: an all female Fight Club-style riot in the streets, a woman whose body has been marked for plastic surgery, and a newspaper with the evocative headline, “It’s Our Turn!”
Basically, Halsey wants y’all to be just as pissed off as she is — and how can you not be with all the nonsense that’s been going on around the world recently?
So, ch-ch-check out the bloody new video (above) and unleash your inner nightmare!

With all the Asylums, Covens, Freakshows, Hotels, and underground bunkers American Horror Story has already explored, you might be thinking the series will eventually run out of locations that scare the wigs off its viewers.
Well, Ryan Murphy is one step ahead of you. According to the newly announced titled of the upcoming ninth season, AHS won’t just be heading to a new location, it’ll be heading to a new decade… the ‘80s, to be exact!
On Wednesday, the AHS mastermind revealed that the ninth season of his hit horror anthology would be titled AHS: 1984!
Teasing some 80s-style slasher madness, the show runner shared on Instagram:
Whoa. Eat your heart out, Stranger Things! Or, carve your heart out, Stranger Things?
Either way, watch out, Stranger Things. AHS wants in on that ‘80s nostalgia!
Horror fans will know that the ‘80s were a huge decade for the genre. Franchises like Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Evil Dead, and the later Halloween movies were all ruling the screen, inspiring studios to churn out lesser (but still memorable) B-movies like Sleepaway Camp, The House on Sorority Row, and The Slumber Party Massacre.
Yes, most of these films involve hot teenagers having sex and doing drugs before a masked killer slaughters them one by one: a formula that went on to be satirized many times in films like Scream, Cabin In The Woods, and The Final Girls — which, interestingly enough, starred AHS regular, Taissa Farmiga.
So, hopefully Murphy will give us a dose of slasher fun — much like he did in the first season of the horror-comedy series Scream Queens, and tried to do in the inferior second season of Scream Queens — but modernize it with some type of relevant commentary.
Maybe here’s where Murph can even squeeze in that #MeToo series he was thinking about doing for a second?
Okay, never mind! Sorry we even brought that up…
As of now, the series co-creator only confirmed that Emma Roberts would be returning for season nine and that her boyfriend would be played by franchise newbie Gus Kenworthy. (Yes, the Olympic freestyle skier. He’s acting now… don’t question it.)
It’s unclear what other series regulars will also appear in 1984, but it’s safe to assume series mainstay Sarah Paulson will be returning and playing at least three different characters.
And, this may be wishful thinking, but perhaps Scream Queens star — and OG scream queen — Jamie Lee Curtis could make an appearance as well? Hey, stranger cameos have happened… (looking at you, Stevie Nicks.)
AHS: 1984 is set to air in the fall on FX. Are U excited for the inevitable bloodbath?

“This summer will be scary,” the end of the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark trailer promises us (above)… and if the 90-second full teaser clip here is any indication, yeah, they’re probably right!!!
On Thursday, CBS Films and Lionsgate released the first trailer for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, giving fans a much-anticipated extended look at what director André Øvredal has been working on after first showing off a few very macabre, short teasers during the Super Bowl back in February.
In the film, a group of teenagers in the small town of Mill Valley follow a string of mysterious murders and try to solve them. Im 1968, the teens discover a book full of scary stories inside a run-down mansion that had belonged to the Bellows family. In the book, a young girl named Sarah writes of mysterious tales and terrible secrets… and as the kids soon find out, reading the book causes a chain reaction of events that are truly unsettling and downright horrific!!!
If the premise of all this sounds familiar, that’s because for generation of avid children’s book readers, it is!! The movie, and its screenplay (written by Dan and Kevin Hageman) are based on the popular children’s book trilogy by author Alvin Schwartz. First published in the 1980s and then again in the 1990s under the same title as the movie, Scary Stories was a horrifying trio of tales that definitely kept many children awake and in fear way past their bedtime at night!!
The one main difference, as you might have guessed, is that the Hageman brothers’ screenplay attempts to reconcile all three separate stories in one big movie — so the flick won’t perfectly follow the book. But that’s OK! We’re still looking forward to it!!
Directed by Øvredal, the same man who put forth The Autopsy of Jane Doe, and produced by Guillermo del Toro, this thriller is sure to scare the pants off you and then some, just going off the teaser trailer (above)! The super-scary flick will be in theaters on August 9, 2019 — so while it’ll be near the tail end of the summer season, as society starts shifting gears into Halloween mode, and we definitely can’t wait to see it in theaters! It’s coming so soon!!
What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Are you looking forward to the terrifying tales of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark as it finally hits the big screen???

What’s real anymore?
We all know that we can’t trust the Media anymore… but now we can’t even trust our own eyes. Amazing technology that will blow your mind.

“You have been weighed, and you have been found wanting!”
Belshazzar’s feast, or the story of the writing on the wall (chapter 5 in the Book of Daniel) tells how Belshazzar holds a great feast and drinks from the vessels that had been looted in the destruction of the First Temple. A hand appears and writes on the wall. The terrified Belshazzar calls for his wise men, but they are unable to read the writing. The queen advises him to send for Daniel, renowned for his wisdom. Daniel reminds Belshazzar that his father Nebuchadnezzar, when he became arrogant, was thrown down until he learned that God has sovereignty over the kingdom of men. Belshazzar had likewise blasphemed God, and so God sent this hand. Daniel then reads the message and interprets it: God has numbered Belshazzar’s days, he has been weighed and found wanting, and his kingdom will be given to the Medes and the Persians.
It is happening again…
Before we begin: Below is the map and video for you to read. I hate getting all religious, but there are times when we have to conjure the almighty power we have in us and use it for good.
Every man has his time to look back and realize, “What happened?” There was a time when it seemed like a new person was becoming a billionaire every day. Suddenly wars were breaking – the same famous people were somehow still rising – the gap between the rich and the poor was suddenly growing to a high number – house prices soared to an astronomical number – and all because of what?
The Three Hunger’s
There are three human yearnings in nature that are the strongest always and no man, no matter how powerful or weak they are, can ever get away from them; money, faith, and sex.
Though I hate using the last word, this word seems to attract a lavish crowd that doesn’t know the meaning of ‘abomination’, in regard to human and child trafficking. I hope it’s not true about the map, but if it is, these people couldn’t get away from that strong yearning of ‘sex’, that their subconscious warped into somehow ‘wanting’ a child over an adult. Power is power and when SOME of them have too much of it, they have to turn to the innocent to feed their ‘power cravings.’
The white rabbit has grown it seems. I just can’t believe that the white rabbit which leads to child trafficking was right in our backyard the whole time. If we can save one child from all of this – if there is one truth to the map or the whole map is justified – then it’s our jobs as human beings to put an end to it! Hollywood has started a movement called ‘me too’ and a new movement for children trafficking must be started called ‘Not Them’. These are innocent creatures, angels from God, and to think what many are doing to them brings tears to my eyes. Follow the map, watch the video, and research ‘Qanon’. I’m afraid it’s time to speak up. No matter what high-level official was, is and are apart of this abomination, if your religious, pray hard that they stop, that they are convicted only if they are guilty, or found innocent if they are so.
The climate around us is actually lifting. It feels like there is a pressure releasing, a hold that is loosening. Evil is powerful, but God is the most powerful as you already know. Afterall, evil got some of their powers from God. But this ‘lifting’ feeling, perhaps, is the evil falling away because we are opening up our mouths because of Trump, no matter how much you love or hate him. It’s happening. It’s happening! There was a muzzle on us for so long, and now it’s gone, and we have to learn how to speak up again.Faith. Another very powerful, strong human yearning that is in the top three. Where do I start? Okay, there are many that have chosen to follow Satan. There. And with that, as you can see from only a few picks above, there are conditions and there are rituals they have to attend. Disturbing. They are so naive, that they forget their spirit is pure, white light and by giving it to Him, dirt enters the mix of the white light. Try getting chocolate out of milk – get the picture? It’s impossible to turn back. The only way to do so if through Jesus. No matter if you believe it or not, Jesus, God can turn chocolate milk into milk again. I digress.
Some of these disgusting rituals include children. And that, in turn, must come from trafficking.
So the Faith in Satan leads to →Money they want right away -fame, fortune, youth, etc – which leads to the →abomination of Sex with those that were trafficked. And there you have it!
The devil started all of this. It’s not like this didn’t happen before, eons ago, but it happened again, is happening, and we must give it at least a listening ear before we pass judgment just because it’s too disturbing or uncomfortable. Because we chose to ignore it for so long is why there has been so much building of ‘the map’.
The subconsciousness has a funny way of telling the truth. LOL. By accident, even the smartest people accidentally tell the truth through their words, clothes, gestures, and jewelry as shown in the photos above. But the darkness doesn’t like that at all.
Below is a little history of the Illuminati.
The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, “enlightened”) is a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious. Historically, the name usually refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on 1 May 1776. The society’s goals were to oppose superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life, and abuses of state power. “The order of the day,” they wrote in their general statutes, “is to put an end to the machinations of the purveyors of injustice, to control them without dominating them.” The Illuminati—along with Freemasonry and other secret societies—were outlawed through edict, by the Bavarian ruler, Charles Theodore, with the encouragement of the Roman Catholic Church, in 1784, 1785, 1787, and 1790. In the several years following, the group was vilified by conservative and religious critics who claimed that they continued underground and were responsible for the French Revolution.
Many influential intellectuals and progressive politicians counted themselves as members, including Ferdinand of Brunswick and the diplomat Xavier von Zwack, who was the Order’s second-in-command. It attracted literary men such as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Johann Gottfried Herder and the reigning dukes of Gotha and Weimar.
In subsequent use, “Illuminati” refers to various organizations which claim or are purported to have links to the original Bavarian Illuminati or similar secret societies, though these links are unsubstantiated. They are often alleged to conspire to control world affairs, by masterminding events and planting agents in government and corporations, in order to gain political power and influence and to establish a New World Order. Central to some of the most widely known and elaborate conspiracy theories, the Illuminati have been depicted as lurking in the shadows and pulling the strings and levers of power in dozens of novels, films, television shows, comics, video games, and music videos.

So begin your research, prayers and remember, just because you turn away from the white rabbit, doesn’t mean it goes away. Take care and God bless.
