Spooked

Have you ever felt spooked, after watching a horror movie? There are some that really creep people out . . . A recent offering certainly had some creepy bits. This week’s poem is inspired by An Amityville Poltergeist (2021). SciFiPulse was given access to an advanced screening of the film. You can check out our review of An Amityville Poltergeist, and see for yourself if it leaves you feel spooked . . .

 

    Spooked . . .

 

A creaky door,

an on/off light,

a mind not sure,

       a face turned white . . .

 

Apparitions,

unexplained;

repetitions,

        brain states strained . . .

 

Then, glass shatters,

    but no one’s there;

nerves in tatters

       a cold nightmare . . .

 

  A dreadful goal —

true evil, sown,

a single soul,

     almost alone . . .

All words by Benjamin Francis Cassidy

If you’re not sure about the film, then this trailer of Amityville Poltergeist might help you decide if it’s for you. But if it’s not, never mind. Consequently, perhaps horror’s just not your genre. Though, as there are likely a good few horror film fans out there, we felt it was time for a spooky poem, even if it’s not Halloween for ages yet! Stay safe dear readers, and don’t go getting too spooked out . . .
