For my weekly column Scooped!, I scour the Internet, contact authors and pick my fellow RT editor's brains to make sure no reader question goes unanswered. This week, I report about Jean Johnston's upcoming book, confirm James Franco's debut as an author, provide some non-fiction reading suggestions and more! Still have questions? Send them to me here and you may be featured in an upcoming post.
Question: RT is covering paranormals all month long but only books. Can you suggest any paranormal movies? - W.P.
Morgan: Great question! My personal favorites are 28 Days Later and anything by Alfred Hitchcock. These movies could keep you busy for a while, but I also asked my fellow editors which films top their lists. Here are the results: The Shining, Candyman, Paranormal Activity, It, Disturbing Behavior and the original Freddy movie all thrill and chill the RT staff. But for slightly lighter fare, they also really enjoy Ghost, Shaun of the Dead, Star Wars, Meet Joe Black, Stardust and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
