A Mystery House

Maybe you don't know this about me but I love Mystery and horror. I love anything weird, scary and out of the ordinary. I also collect Vampire movies and books (way before the whole Twilight saga). My favorite holiday is Halloween, I love attending Mystery Dinners or taking a haunted hayride listening to a gypsy woman talk about the NJ devil. The hubs and I love anything that has to do with Serial killers, crimes, unsolved mysteries and things of the sorts.

After all, I was the person who took 11,000 pictures of Anne Rice's home in New Orleans since her book "The Witching Hour" took place there. Yeah, I'm the same person who took a Ghost tour too. Anything scary count me in (ok, except the movie "The Ring"... I can't do it, but thats another post)

I think is so fascinating to try to figure out what was going thru people's dark minds. My hubs is a huge Stephen King fan and he has read most of his books. Years ago (2002) a movie was made based on one of his books Rose Red it is eerie and dark and wonderful.

The movie plot is that this psychology professor commissions a team of psychics and a gifted 15-year-old girl to awake the ghost living in an old Mansion...Rose Red. Now we all know that's a big no, no unless you want trouble...and trouble they get. The house was supposed to have been built by this widow and she kept on building and adding to it until her disappearance. There are odd rooms, weird doors, eerie spaces...oh, how I love this story.

To my surprise one of my favorite blogs to stalk "Between Naps on the Porch" has a post featuring The Winchester Mystery house! It seems to me this is the same story!. Please go and check her post, it is so fantastic and she has amazing pictures of the property.

And if I get so lucky to go back to California one day, this is definitely on my list of things to do.

Over & out

I love scary stuff too. But I'm a huge wimp when it comes to horror movies. I barely made it through The Ring and had to leave the room several times while watching Strangers. Seriously, I don't know why I do that to myself.
