R.I.P. VI Challenge

The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books that could be classified as:

Dark Fantasy.

September 1 - October 31

I will be participating in "Peril the First" - read 4 books, "Peril of the Short Story" - read a short story, and "Peril on the Screen" - watch a movie or TV show.

The Woman in Black by: Susan Hill
Handling the Undead by: John Ajvide Lindqvist
The Moving Finger by: Agatha Christie
The Lantern by: Deborah Lawrenson

Short Story:
"The Yellow Wallpaper" by: Charlotte Perkins Gilman - I read this in my Gothic Lit class in college. Recently I read a fellow blogger's review and it made me want to go back and read this again.

Not sure yet! Suggestions would be nice. I noticed a movie is being made of The Woman in Black, but it won't be out in time for me to watch for this year's challenge. My husband and I always watch a scary movie on Halloween. Past movies include: "Psycho," "The Birds," "The Rear Window," "The Oath" (original), and a collection of Hawthorne stories directed by Hitchcock. We do watch modern suspense movies like "Skeleton Key," "The Burbs," "Disturbia," "The Others," "White Noise," etc. Nothing too graphic.

Have you seen The Haunting (the original with Julie Harris and Claire Bloom)? I always say it's the scariest movie I have ever seen -- based on Shirley Jackson's book The Haunting of Hill House.

I am looking forward to reading The Lantern!

Cookie65, I have not seen it! But now I plan too. I didn't know there was an original, I thought there was just the one with Catherine Zeta Jones. I really enjoyed the book though!

Kailana, can't wait to hear what you think! I'm on a waiting list for it at my library, I hope my turn comes before Halloween!
