Spirits of the Dead by Edgar Allen Poe

Thy soul shall find itself alone
’Mid dark thoughts of the grey tomb-stone;
Not one, of all the crowd, to pry
Into thine hour of secrecy.

Be silent in that solitude,
Which is not loneliness — for then
The spirits of the dead, who stood
In life before thee, are again
In death around thee, and their will
Shall overshadow thee; be still.

The night, though clear, shall frown,
And the stars shall not look down
From their high thrones in the Heaven
With light like hope to mortals given,
But their red orbs, without beam,
To thy weariness shall seem
As a burning and a fever
Which would cling to thee for ever.

Now are thoughts thou shalt not banish,
Now are visions ne’er to vanish;
From thy spirit shall they pass
No more, like dew-drop from the grass.

The breeze, the breath of God, is still,
And the mist upon the hill
Shadowy, shadowy, yet unbroken,
Is a symbol and a token.
How it hangs upon the trees,
A mystery of mysteries!

Review

Wow…just wow. Honestly this movie scared the living CRAP out of me. It was REALLY well done, not bringing in any of the gruesome things which most horror movies just SEEM to need to have (such as SAW (do not watch if you dislike blood and torture)). This played on your real life fears of things that scared you such as clowns/dolls, doors opening on their own, and things which just scared the living bejeezus out of you.

I can honestly, and happily, say that I left my seat about two times from jumping, and successfully screamed once. My dad even had the hairs on his arms stand up, which is quite hard to do. It was such a successful movie that I couldn’t sleep and then my dad just HAD to scare me by placing our old, and creepy, clown under my pillow. I nearly had a heart attack and it wasn’t funny. BUT, we still had a good laugh.

I couldn’t breathe after the movie and my heart was in my throat but it wasn’t so scary that you felt sick. There was almost NO special effects and I really liked that.

It’s a great Halloween movie but DON’T watch it alone, otherwise it will not end will for anyone. I would walk around my house with a knife and lock myself in a closet or something x.x

But anyway, overall it was REALLY well done. It is rated R and fits its rating, so I suggest that you be at least 16 to see this movie. I saw younger kids watching it, and know of them see it, and this was NOT appropriate.

But definitely check this out tomorrow or even watch it during Halloween. ^.^

Let me know what you think and enjoy!!!!

Warning! This trailer is quite scary and will make you jump. Do not have your volume too loud!
You have been warned. 

An exciting new book to read!!!!

So my totally awesome librarian, Omar, recently graced me with an awesome book.

The Walking Dark by Robin Wasserman

And in addition to it being a book being based off ‘It’ by Stephen King (which I am currently working on), I got a signed copy….WHICH IS SO TOTALLY AWESOME!

I am only a few pages in but I am currently loving it and I cannot wait to see where it goes!

So let the reading begin :D
