Wonderfully Wicked Read-A-Thon: Saturday PM Challenge


The Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-thon, hosted by Bex @ Kindle Fever and April @ My Shelf Confessions is in full swing! A Book and a Latte is excited to host the PM challenge - "Lets Talk Horror". This challenge is open from 8 PM EST to 12 AM EST today only!

[Challenge is closed]

This challenge is super easy. Ready?

Let's Talk Horror
What is your favorite horror or thriller movie based off of a book?

Simply answer this question in the comments and include your email to enter! That's it! I'd love to discuss the books/movies but please be careful to not include spoilers! I will use the to pick a winner (counting through comments, hmmm... that will be interesting).

Entrants must be participating in the Read-a-thon. Winner will receive a $10 giftcard to Amazon, or a book of choice ($10 or under) from Book Depository. Yay for an international giveaway (as long as Book Depository can ship to you)!

To get things started, here's my answer:

The Silence of the Lambs (1991) starring Jodi Foster and Anthony Hopkins, based on the book by Thomas Harris. Nothing scares me more than a psychological thriller about a serial killer! I read this entire series in college and I STILL occasionally have dreams about Hannibal Lector. Seriously. 

As part of the search for a serial murderer nicknamed "Buffalo Bill," FBI trainee Clarice Starling is given an assignment. She must visit a man confined to a high-security facility for the criminally insane and interview him.

That man, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, is a former psychiatrist with unusual tastes and an intense curiosity about the darker corners of the mind. His intimate understanding of the killer and of Clarice herself form the core of The Silence of the Lambs--an unforgettable classic of suspense fiction. (Goodreads)

Alrighty, what's your favorite horror/thriller movie based from a book? I can't wait to see your answers! Remember, contest closes at 12AM EST (midnight) TODAY. Winner will be announced at the end of the Read-a-thon.
