Top Five Haunted House Horror Movies

Hi all. My name is Melvin Rivers, the author of “Haven of Evil,” a horror book with a haunted house theme. “Haven of Evil” was inspired by many horror novels of course, but a few movies also inspired yours truly to write “Haven of Evil.” Since Halloween is coming up, I took the liberties to name my top five haunted house movies¬—movies you can enjoy while getting the creeps over a bowl of popcorn during the Halloween season. 

“Haven of Evil” has something that is similar to each movie. (Something I did on purpose, since I’m a huge fan of each movie.) Without further ado here’s the list.

5. The Others (2001). Grace Stewart (Nicole Kidman) a mother who lives with her two young children in a remote country house in in the immediate aftermath of World War II. The children, have a disease that makes them sensitive to sunlight. After a series of eerie events, Grace begins to fear there are others in the house. This movie had a strange twist at the end. The others weren’t the ones movie goers had suspected. “Haven of Evil” also has a strange twist towards the end.
 Movie trailer:

4. The Amityville Horror (1979). A movie based on Jay Anson's 1977 novel of the same name. A couple moves to a house with their children and things begin to get strange. This movie is a must see during the Halloween season. It has it all as far as a good haunted house movie is concern, from ghostly experiences to demonic eyes peering through the window. I thought about this movie while writing my book. 
Movie trailer:

3.Poltergiest (1982).  Ghosts are very active in this movie. A glass of milk spontaneously breaks, silverware bends and furniture moves on its own accord. The phenomena seem benign at first, but quickly begin to intensify. Later on, a tree in the backyard of the house comes alive and grabs a boy through the bedroom window. And strange things come through the Television set. What would you do if you live in a house like this? I know I would get out fast.
 Movie trailer:

2. The Exorcist (1973).  Technically speaking the Exorcist isn’t a haunted house movie. But evil does reside inside a house. Would you live in a house with a demon possessed child living only a few doors down from you? Well, I thought so.
Movie trailer:

1.The Shining (1980). This is the king of all haunted house movies, by the horror master himself, Stephen King. Some may say the haunting didn’t happen inside a house, but a hotel. Let me say, a hotel is nothing except a big house with a lot of guest.  “Haven of Evil” was heavily inspired by the Shining. 
Movie trailer:

Now what is your top five haunted house movies?

The Magic and Medicine of Herbs with Patricia Lee

Hi. So glad you stopped by. My name is Pat Lee and I wanted to talk about how a secondary character in Destiny’s Past, the Sorceress Narena, uses plants as an aid for her powers. 
For millennia, plants and herbs have been utilized for more than just cooking. If you check most modern medicines, the basis of their healing properties stems from plants.  

Because Narena lived two thousand years ago, she would have had to rely on what was available in her part of the world (Ancient Persia) to help with healing the sick or injured and also any spells she had to cast. For instance, grapefruit seed extract can be used for fighting infection, except grapefruits didn’t grow in Persia, which incidentally is now Iran and Iraq. Instead, I found out that oil from the Frankincense plant can be used for the same purpose. 

Another aspect of how my character used plants is in magical herbalism. There is a great website called that has a vast list of herbs, their magical uses and various preparation methods. For example if you cut and look at the interior of an apple you see a natural pentagram in the positions of the seeds (never considered that!) Apples are sacred to the Goddess of Wicca and represent fertility and sacred knowledge. Or the herb basil, which soothes tempers between lovers and is used in love incenses and sachets. Carry some in your pocket to attract wealth or put it in the cash registers to attract customers. Basil’s mystical properties are love, wealth, exorcism and protection.

Although my research couldn’t find any factual evidence to support these theories, I’m sure many practicing Wiccans and others would find it interesting or helpful.

In Destiny’s Present, the second book of the Daughters of the Crescent Moon Trilogy, Narena becomes the central character and therefore even more research was done when she needed to use plants for spells. I actually found a registered herbalist who is a member of the American Herbalist Guild to verify which plant Narena could use to create a sleeping draught. Hey, it was for a good reason!  

The internet is crammed with websites about herbs and their medicinal properties. My experience with herbs and plants has been through a registered naturopath but if you decide to develop concoctions using plants or herbs, make sure you do your research and be careful.
If you have had any success with herbs and their magical usage, I’d be curious, as I’m sure others would be too, about how you made out.

Book Description:

No-nonsense medical examiner, Kelly Richards, relies on the familiar comforts of science and scalpels to get her through the day. So when a not-so-dead guy who claims he's from the past lands on her autopsy table, she considers calling the men in white coats to escort him to a padded room. But Jarek’s old-world ways and hot gaze trick her heart into falling for him—a mistake she swore she’d never make again.

When Jarek, Prince of Leisos, discovers someone he trusts has been slowly poisoning him, he travels to the future in search of a cure. Driven by vengeance, he enlists the help of an impudent scientist to return him to his time.

As they try to find a solution, Kelly struggles with her feelings for Jarek while dodging the police and a visitor from her past.

Caught between his growing desire for Kelly and the need to expose his would-be assassin before they strike again, Jarek must decide between forfeiting his ticket home or losing the only woman he’s ever loved.

Kelly Richards was at her best when surrounded by death. Calm, centered, and confident, she was exactly where she was meant to be.
She plucked a pair of surgical gloves from a box on the counter, snapped them on, walked over to the open file on the desk and glanced at the information. Caucasian male, mid to late thirties, died of an apparent drug overdose.
Although she couldn't understand or agree with people trying to find answers in chemical substances, she felt a momentary pang of sadness at the needless loss of life.
She'd dreamed of becoming an MD because she wanted to help others. Taught to maintain emotional distance from her patients, their pain and grief brought her own inner struggle to the surface—the one buried deep to avoid living it day after day. Unwilling to turn her back on aiding people, she switched careers and became a Medical Examiner to assist families of the dead achieve closure.
Working the evening shift alone at the county morgue was preferable to being with people who made idle conversation, mainly about stuff she had no interest in. It also provided a way to prevent coworker's well-meant intentions to set her up. Her job offered escape from them, allowing her to hide from her past. And herself.
Five metal drawers occupied the far wall of the room, each containing bodies to be autopsied. Kelly pulled open the door to number three, rolled out the drawer, revealing the man she would work on.
Her eyes widened. Most of the time, the prep crew stripped cadavers of their clothing before putting them in the cooler, but if the autopsy couldn't be performed right away, they didn't bother. His clothing wasn't the issue. It was the type of garments that caught her attention. He wore a short sleeve shirt, almost like a tunic, made of a fine, silky material. His loose fitting pants were woven from an odd cloth, not the usual denim or twill. Dust covered dull tan sandals strapped to his feet.
He was foreign, exotic looking. Dark brown hair, longer than the norm, barely brushed broad shoulders. His skin was light bronze, yet the file classified him as Caucasian. A frown pursed her lips. Odd. The people in admitting didn't usually make mistakes. This male appeared of mixed Mexican or Spanish descent, maybe Cuban. She leaned closer. Hmmm. His skin didn't have the ashen grey pallor of death either. She reached out to touch his arm.
The phone on the desk screamed two jangling blasts.
Kelly started, heart pounding against her ribs. Muttering a soft curse, she answered the phone and gave the caller information on a body she'd autopsied earlier.
She braced the desk with a trembling hand. She hadn't been here long and working evenings still made her jumpy.
Her attention reverted to the file on the body she was supposed to autopsy. What the hell? The measurements were all wrong. No way was the body on the slab five-five. More like about six-three. Did she pull the wrong drawer out? The information at the top of the page confirmed no mistake. There must have been some kind of screw-up. Surely someone didn't switch bodies? Checking the others would be the only way to find out.
Kelly marched back to the bank of drawers. As her hand closed around the handle of the second one, a wheezing breath not her own interrupted the silence of the room. She turned in slow motion to the cadaver lying on the slab beside her. Her throat closed. Similar to a scene out of a horror movie, the dead man's chest rose and fell. Not the final gasp of air escaping lungs at death, he inhaled and exhaled in a slow, shallow rhythm.
Grabbing the edge of the slab for stability, she shut her eyes.
Easy girl. Calm down, it's just your imagination. When you open your eyes, there will be a dead person on the slab, and he will not be breathing.
"Oh, for heaven's sake. This is ridiculous. He's dead."

"Not yet," the body whispered.

Dreamcasting The Raveners by LD Towers

I thought I would share a little ‘dream casting’ for The Raveners, if it were ever to become a movie.

 First off, we have our heroine, Dr. Alexandra ‘Lexa’ Horne. As with all of my female characters, Lexa is plus sized and she has very naturally red hair. (I’m not joking. Galiena von Steinberg of Teufel and New Austrian Order has auburn hair. Next female character won’t be a ginger! I promise!) When I think of Lexa, I tend to think of Christina Hendricks. While Hendricks is, by no means, plus sized, she is a little bigger than a lot of the women in Hollywood. Another choice would be Hayley Atwell, though she really isn’t bigger at all. It’s really hard to find actresses who are bigger in Hollywood. If any of you remember Kate Winslet in Holy Smoke? When she was red haired and a little heaver than she is now? That would be my ‘dream Lexa.’

For Kurt von Wittelsbach, I would choose is Ken Duken. At first, I thought Duken looked too young, but then I saw a few of his more recent works and thought… yeah. He has it. I really like his look in some period pieces. Karl is a bit of an enigma. Visually, he’s in his mid thirties, but that’s also mid 30s for someone of a thousand years ago. I think Duken could carry that off. In some of his period pieces, he really looks fantastic.

Ludwig von Gravenreuth could only be Matthias Schweighöfer. Ludwig is so stereotypically German looking- blond, blue eyed with a large, Edwardian moustache. Schweighöfer played Manfred von Richthofen in the Red Baron and again, was a bit of an inspiration for the character.

If he would do it, about the only person I could ever see as Pentadourn is Morgan Freeman. In fact, when I was reading the book to my mother, she even said he felt like Morgan Freeman. So there you go. Mr. Freeman- if you ever see this? You are 100% Pentadourn and will always be Pentadourn to me.

Tchéky Karyo is the only person who could play Baron Gustav Rothschild in The Raveners. He has a perfect mix of stern power. In fact, I thought of Karyo when I first started writing the character. He has a small part in The Way as a policeman and it really inspired me when I was creating the Rothschild character. He just looks strong and very capable. And his accent is like butter!

Another character who had their ‘actor’ very firmly in mind from the moment I created him was Cardinal Mungo Kerr. In my head, I see Michael Byrne. He has those ice cold eyes and yet in some films, they can be rather gentle. I can really picture him in a heavy, scarlet, moire cassock.

Dr. Charles Forsythe would be Ron Donachie. Again, needs a walrus moustache.

Fellow Canuck Françios Arnaud as (Commandant) Médecin Principal Bernard Llense. A little young, but yes. And he would look damn saucy in an Armée de Terre uniform.

Liev Schrieber is totally Dr. Jack Bennett. "Lexa was sure that all the archeology undergrads wanted him as a prof."

On 26 May 1897, Bram Stoker brought us the story of Dracula; an undead creature who terrorised the living by drinking their blood. He based his creature on the legends of Ireland and Eastern Europe, bringing it to life with all the pomp of Victorian literature. What if his concept was correct, but the execution was not? What if there was not one creature, but a band of twenty-four? Crusader knights who committed such a terrible act that the Pope of Rome and the Rabbis of Jerusalem joined together in petitioning God to bring a terrible curse upon them.Sentenced to eternal life as punishment for their crimes, yet hounded by both the clerical and the secular as they struggle to live them. The Jews called them Ga’ashekelah: the Raveners. To the Catholic Church, they are the Accursed Ones. Feasting on the bodies of the living to maintain their power.

What starts as a simple trip on the Eurostar to the buried trenches of World War One in Northern France is going to take Imperial War Museum expert Dr. Alexandra Horne on a journey she could never have conceived. From the bustling streets of Paris to the azure waters of Collioure and the very Vatican itself, Lexa will discover the Raveners and those who have sworn to hunt them down.

It's Fiction - Crosswind by G.L. Ross

“It’s Fiction!”
People often assume a story-line or character in a novel is representative of the author. After releasing “Turbulent Passion” I had phone calls and text messages from people as far back as high school, women asking if I was Lisa, men wanting to take me out after reading the sex scenes, family members asking if I had been assaulted! It’s FICTION I reiterated.

As one friend, a male friend, said to me “those thoughts have to be in your mind somewhere.” Yes, I literally laughed out loud as I pleaded the fifth. I think most authors put some part of themselves in each book, whether it be the storyline or a character. Obviously, being a flight attendant gave me insight into the world of aviation, but I had to step out of my comfort zone and research the Air Force reserves and combat.

My inspirational romance, “The Strength of Love,” is built upon a prayer I prayed in my twenties and the fact God hears our prayers, but doesn’t always answer them the way we intended. Lisa, in The Flyboy Trilogy, is naïve, as I was in my twenties, and a flight attendant, but that pretty much is all of me there is within her creation. Her best friend, the energizer bunny, is most definitely based on my best friend. The rest of the characters are unique mixtures of different people and personalities meshed together.

I laugh when I’m out with friends and someone comments, “Watch what you’re saying it may end up in a book” or they do something and reply, “That needs to be in a book, Gayle.” Yes, beware of authors in your midst, but please remember it’s fiction!

Excerpt 3

Step by firm step he approaches me, backing me against the wall. “Lisa, I can only be so strong.” He captures my wrists, holding them firmly above my head. Staring vehemently into my eyes, he continues, “I’m not a saint. I love my brother, but when it comes to you I lose my mind and my honor.” His eyes lower to my heaving chest. After dropping his head back to look at the ceiling, he returns his gaze and continues, “I’m begging you to stop whatever this teasing torment is, because if you keep this up we’re both going to wake with regrets.”
His forearms rest against the wall. Fanning his warm, labored breathing across my face, his hips press firmly against me. The heat of his rock solid erection between my thighs excites and lubricates every blessed inch of me. His head drops to my shoulder. Against my ear, he whispers, “You’re my kryptonite.”
“My hearts pounding,” I reply.
“Sweetheart, mines been pounding ever since I first laid eyes on you.”
I whisper, “You really want me…and think about me?”
With his forehead pressed to mine, he replies, “If you’re asking me how many times you’ve entered my thoughts I would have to say once, because, quite honestly, you never really left my mind from our very first encounter.”
“How much of what you say is bullshit and how much is sincere?”
He tosses his head back and laughs, before placing his lips directly in front of mine. “When it comes to you, Lisa, it’s all factual.”
“You’re maddening.”
His crystal blue eyes turn dark. “Well, that’s the pot calling the kettle black.”
His breath brushes warmly against my lips. “Are you going to kiss me?” I ask.
“I want to.”
“Then do it. I miss being kissed.”
