Scary movies have always been one of my favorite past times, especially as a kid. I used to repeatedly watch movies like "A Nightmare on Elm Street," "Poltergeist," and "Halloween," over and over. A good scare is always fun. But when a movie starts to leave scars, that's when it becomes "too much." The one scary movie that has done that to me is "The Exorcist."
As a kid, my parents never really censored me and my sisters from watching anything as long as it wasn't too sexually explicit. So while growing up, I was basically allowed to watch almost every horror movie that was released. "The Exorcist" was the one horror movie that to this day, still makes me cringe when I see Linda Blair's possessed face. I grew up bombarded with nightmares of Regan MacNeil chasing me down lone highways. It should never be a movie that a child should watch because it's that frightening. The themes in that movie were also so adult. I know that a lot of my friends laugh at the movie now, but they are also adults and have viewed it as adults. I'm sure it would be a different story if they were seven years old watching Regan twist her head around as she spews obscenities. Scary!
Anyway, this leads me to ask: What are your top 3 scary movies of all time?
Mine are: 1) The Exorcist 2) A Nightmare on Elm Street (The Original), and 3) The Shining.

Blogging is a new experience for me, but I’m excited and hopeful to meet new and interesting people.
After eight months of writing, and rewriting…and then rewriting again, I am finally in the last stages of publishing my paranormal romance novel titled, Soul in Love. It will fall under the “young adults” category. In the novel, the main character, Amber Olive, will experience issues involving loss, desperation, pain, and of course, love. Needless to say, I am thrilled for the release which will be in a few weeks.
For those who would like to know more about me or the book, just go to www.vonesavan.com. And, for people who are more visual, I’ve also created a book trailer. The trailer can be found either at www.youtube.com/vonesavan.
In the meantime, I would love to meet other writers, artists, and people in general. Please feel free to leave a comment and I’ll do the same as I continue to explore this medium known as “blogging.”
