TAD with Rain My favorite Ghouls and Goblins PPF

Hi Everyone!
 

I am excited for TAD with Rain. Her theme is Goblins and Ghouls. 
Ya know my world. LOL
Did you know?
Ghoul, is Arabic ghūl, in popular legend, demonic being believed to inhabit burial grounds and other deserted places. In ancient Arabic folklore, ghūls belonged to a diabolic class of jinn (spirits) and were said to be the offspring of Iblīs, the prince of darkness in Islam
Considered female by the ancients, the ghūl was often confused with the sílā, also female; the sílā, however, was a witch like species of jinn, immutable in shape. A ghūl stalked the desert, often in the guise of an attractive woman, trying to distract travelers, and, when successful, killed and ate them. The sole defense that one had against a ghūl was to strike it dead in one blow; a second blow would only bring it back to life again.
 
Gobblins in the other hand,
 originated in the 14th century and are most prevalent in northwestern Europe, Scandinavia, the British Isles, and the United States. The name “Goblin” is said to derive from the Old French spelling “gobelin 
 Goblins were a race of small and numerous goblinoids common throughout Toril, often living in underground caverns near the surface known as lairs. The race was often, though not always, dominated by other goblinoids, most commonly hobgoblins.
 
Don't know if this is a goblin or a ghoul or maybe a bit of both.
 Possibly bitten by a vampire. (giggle)
 
There is a movie called "Insidious" 
It's one movie that the monster really scares me. 
It is a thrilling feeling to be scared from a movie.
Anyway, the face is this creature is somewhat like this.
 
Did you know? 
According to Brownlowe, there's a good reason why people like watching a horror movie. "The experience of your brain calming itself down after watching a scary movie is actually neuro-chemically very pleasurable," she says. "That's because the dopamine release related to the 'rest-and-digest' brain response causes an increased sense of well-being
 Geesss I should have the most well-being brain on earth. 
I watch at least one scary movie everyday.  
What can I say I am a FREAK!!! LOL
 
Here is the creature from the movie "Insidious."

Come by Rain's blog to see what all the other's have created.
Have a great day and watch a scary movie today.

    1. I too love scary, supernatural. We have just about every book S.K. has written and the movies too. Cat's Eye is a good one. Ohhh that is so cool about the asylum. I was in Japan one time on Halloween. They don't really celebrate like we do but the hang white ghost like fabric to keep the bad spirits away. Enjoy your day.

  18. Hi Nicole! :) I love your goblin! Although if he got bit by a vampire, I'd say good luck to the vampire, I don't know that goblin blood is very healthy ;) Oh I haven't seen Insidious yet, but I have it downloaded! I'm going to watch it this month. October is scary movie month for me...well, MORE SO than the other months lol! And knowing it's like a drug, well, I'm a freak too lol! Great post! :) You'll enjoy the next 4 themes too, they are all related to spooky and creepy! :)
