Happy Halloween!

Let’s do a 13 hours horror movies marathon!

The last horror movie I watched is the American movie 13 sins. It was more a combination between horror, thriller and psychological genres but it was pretty intense and I was actually disappointed when it ended. The last scene, somehow, could have been longer or more detailed.

I’m not really a fan of the horror genre so maybe you’re not one too, so for those who waited for my Sing it on Friday post instead, here is the song:

Movies I recommend you to watch on Halloween:

How about we start first with a short horror story. (I don’t know any asian ones so I will recommend you one I liked in particular)
