Something fun for this holiday season!

Fun or Creepy

Ghosts

Fabric hanging from trees - Fun

Verdict: Creepy & Fun (a tie)

Goblins
Hands down Creepy.

Verdict: Creepy. Even in Harry Potter.

Scarecrows

Festivals - Fun

Verdict: Creepy & Fun (favoring Fun)

Care to add to the list? Change my mind on creepy little goblins? Add other movies or novels that make you feel differently?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

For goblins, all I can think of is the horrific '80s film Hobgoblins, which was neither fun nor creepy!

mshatch said...

Ghosts
13 Ghosts - Creepy

Amy Saia said...

Great list! I agree with everything.

Madeleine said...

Goblins, Gaius became one in Merlin which was fun.

Miserable goblins in Harry Potter :O)

Heather Eagar said...

I think anything can be creepy or fun. Take puppets for instance. Most of the time, cute. Chucky...not so cute. You can take the most hideous animals in the world and make a cute cartoon out of them. Goblins...could go either way. Give them some long eyelashes, puppy dog eyes...no, your right. Still creepy.

I just saw Paranormal Activity today and I didn't find as terrifying as I thought I would. Of course, I did watch it in broad daylight.

The Ring definitely needs to be added onto the creepy list.

Nightmare before Christmas: fun

Hocus Pocus: fun

Anything Goosebumps: SO much fun! And a tad creepy.

The Golden Eagle said...

I agree with you. :D

L.T. Elliot said...

I wish I could go to Hogwarts for Halloween. Heck, I wish I could go to Hogwarts ANY time!

Roland D. Yeomans said...

I agree with Heather. Anything can be creepy -- take my home cooking for one thing!

Come check out my entry in Roh Morgon's MONSTER MASH BLOGFEST. It's short and the prologue to my new YA urban fantasy, THE LEGEND OF VICTOR STANDISH.

But what about the goglins in the movie 'Labyrinth'? They were goblins weren't they? It's been ages since I watched the film but I remember them being good guys. Or maybe I have it totally wrong.

The Words Crafter said...

The movie Pumpkin Head, though it's not a scarecrow. Crow-it's half of scarecrow...? Hmmmm, fun but difficult. Casper-fun. Ghostbusters-fun.

I can't think of any more off the top of my head, but this is fun!

Donna Hole said...

Goblins: from Pierce Anthony's Xanth series equals - sometimes fun, but definitely interesting.

Jemi Fraser said...

Fun post! I love Donna's comment about Xanth - I haven't read one of those in years. They're such fun books!

Melissa Gill said...

How about clowns- supposed to be fun but to me, just creepy.

Brigitte said...

i think i'd be too distracted by the amazing food selection on the tables at Hogwarts to notice the ghosts. xD

Theresa Milstein said...

Goblins are creepy even in Harry Potter.

Abby Minard said...

The Scarecrow was difinitely creepy in the new Batman movie!

I think the spooky stuff in Beetlejuice are fun!

Meredith said...

Oooh, goblins creep me out. And scarecrows do, too, even the one in the Wizard of Oz--I know, I have issues.

Ashley Hasty said...

This is so cute! I agree 100% with your selections! Goblins totally creepy, no doubt.

I still haven't seen Paranormal Activity because I'm worried that I'll never be able to sleep again if I watch it - lol.

Holly Ruggiero said...
