    Since it's Halloween today, why don't we share some of our favorite spooky/creepy-tone videos? There are tons of them out there, and since different folks find different things creepy and have their own favorites there could be an interesting variety.

    My favorite are known as 'The Forbidden Files'. It's found footage style but from way before it became the sub-genre of horror and the trend it is today. There are thirteen in all (the full playlist is here) but I'm just going to post my top three favorites, in reverse order.

    3: The Witch

    The authentic old timey feel really makes this one.

    2. The Ferguson Case

    This one isn't narrated like the others but fits in, and is more modern. I love this one because it reminds me of the amazing book House of Leaves.

    1. The Ghosts

    Easily my favorite of the series. Spirtual journey through the desert to meet the nameless ones, dealing with some metaphysical concepts. The found footage style really shines in this one, it pulls off the feel of a documentary home video circa 1953 perfectly. It's not gory or full of jump scares or meaningless distortion effects (which is a too popular trope these days), it's just a straight up adventure into the unknown, presented seriously. It's slow paced and might not be everyone's cup of tea but I love it and re-watch it every Halloween.

    "They capture words because no word is true and they drive them into the Earth. Our Mother Earth is wounded by words that carry madness, and the night takes vengeance on men, and frightens them by setting the words free. And when the Earth speaks to herself I am terrified, and I hide away in my cabin."

    Some good stuff. Share some creepy vids you like yourself, it is after all the season.
