You can hate getting scared and still want to watch scary movies. I’m a little crying baby, but I didn’t let that stop me from enjoying The Babadook, or enjoying and then hating 10 Cloverfield Lane. My strategy for both was simple: Watch on the couch with a friend, pausing a little for drinks. It worked great, I only had two nightmares after each movie!

Keen to have those grisly ghouls from every tomb close in to seal your doom? You're only a mere mortal, so surely you cannot resist the evil of the thriller? Or, perhaps more accurately, the horror. Want to scare yourself half to death and don't know where to begin? Well, you've come to the right place (or the wrong place, perhaps)
It's that special time of year again when everyone is looking for a good scary story. And though podcasts more often conjure up the images of gentle interviews with creative types and soothing NPR voices, more shows are moving into the territory of old-school radio plays, producing unsettling (and addictive) stories from true crime to horror. I hope you brought an extra pair of pants, 'cause these podcasts bring the terror.
"I don't like scary stuff," you tell people -- as if it's an allergy of some kind. You won't go to haunted houses, you wouldn't dream of playing the new Resident Evil, and your fingers are perpetually crossed in the hope your moviegoing friends won't pick a horror flick.
