The second movie I chose for this week's theme was another one that I hadn't seen before and surprisingly had heard very little of before watching it. All I knew about it was that it was suppose to be one of the scariest films on Netflix in 2018. I don't believe the hype for movies like that because I don't really find a lot of stuff scary. But when I was talking to a friend about this theme and I was trying to decide on what movies to feature, she said I had to watch Veronica. She not only was it really scary but it was based on true events. So I decided that I would give it a chance. I watched the movie before I did any research on the story behind it.
When Jeremy and I first moved to Champaign, people told us to watch out for Effingham. We assumed it was for the speed traps on the interstate by the rest area or all the construction. Nope, that was just part of what we should have been warned about. Turns out that in Effingham there are werewolves, warlocks, spirits and something else entirely weird prowling around. When Jeremy and I found out what all was going on down there, we had to go check it out ourselves.
The two games I am featuring in this post are for those who prefer something a little scarier. I do have to say though, be careful when playing these games. I have never played them so I don't know how they will play out. Also when playing games like these in the dark, you need to take precautions to not hurt yourself. Sorry for sounding like a mom for a moment but I have to put those warnings in with these games.
As a teenager, I remember playing different games with my friends trying to figure out what our futures held. We used drawn games like M*A*S*H to figure out if would live in a mansion with Devon Sawa and our 9 kids or shack with the nerd from math class and a dog. We would also spend hours making cootie catchers that would need folded and unfolded to reveal a fortune or compliment. Sometimes we would even use our necklaces as pendulums to divine a message from a board we had written before class started. This was long before I knew what pendulums really were or understood that these practices could be a form of magic casting. To us, these were just games to pass a boring class or to play during a sleepover. Recently though I have learned about games that are similar that are played around the world.
This week though I have two great posts for you for those of y'all that follow this blog only. Those of y'all on the Patreon page will get an extra post.
When I planned this week's theme, I had no idea that ironically this week our town would be covered in snow. This week our area received 8 inches of snow. It has definitely made things interesting.
