Follow Friday - Book to Halloween movie


Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Question: What book do you think would make a great Halloween movie? Please explain in graphic details of goriness....
Scary movies aren't really my thing. They don't normally scare me at all.  Everyone else is jumping and leaving the lights on while I'm wondering what the point of the whole movie was.  Just warning you I'm not expert in Halloween movies (unless they are the Disney channel variety).

My first instict was to say Anna Dressed in Blood. BUT since the first answer I read someone said that I decided to try to choose something different.

So I'm going to go with Feed by Mira Grant.  It's the peak of the zombie genre.  While the main characters, a team of bloggers following a presidential campaign, kill lots of zombies I like the fact the zombies are not the big bad guys of this movie.  What's actually scary is the conspiracy that's going on behind the scene--trying to change the outcome of a presidential campaign using zombies as a weapon.

There is blood. Lots of it.  Main characters die. Everyone re-animates.  The book is scary, but the intelligent kind of scary that I much prefer.

Haven't heard of Feed but if that was a movie I don't think I'd see it. Zombies terrify me and I'm the opposite of you when it comes to scary movies.

Intellectual scary still scares me, lol. Thanks for the follow; following in return!

Haven't heard of it but it would definitely creep me out. Unlike you I am a total wimp. I can't even watch horror films because I get scared too easily. IN fact the only 'horror' i do watch is the Disney style scary like Corpse Bride and Monster House. :P

Feed, really? But the only zombie scene was at the beginning! I didn't like this book at all! But I'm sure Hollywood would find a way to make it into a great movie :-)

Hi! New follower here!

I like scary movies and books but then I hate them at the same time! Feed sounds creepy. I'm definitely not a fan of zombies. Thanks for sharing
