I watched a lot of scary movies the last three days. One of them was “Annabelle”. I think American ghosts and some other ghosts are not scary. I also don’t think some werewolf or some zombies or vampires they’re not scary. I’m only afraid of female ghosts, just wear the white dress, their hair are long and they are very white. In Chinese, there are some old sayings, there are no vampires. Annabelle is a doll which was possessed by a woman. The other woman she believed in Satan. She want to get more souls, but there’s a couple they control the doll and put the doll in the room. That room was protected by God. In this movie, the ghost is real.

I watched a lot of scary movies over the last three days. One of them was “Annabelle”. I think American ghosts and ghosts from other countries are not scary. I also don’t think werewolves or zombies or vampires are scary. I’m only afraid of female ghosts in Asian movies. They only wear the white dress, their hair is very long and they are very white/fair-skinned. In Chinese, there are some old sayings or traditional customs, such as “if you go out for more than three days, you shouldn’t open the door right away. You should first knock the door three times, after a few minutes, you can open the door and then knock the door three times again.” Annabelle is a doll which was possessed by a woman who believed in Satan. She want to consume more souls, but a couple controlled the doll and put the doll in the room, which/where it was protected by God. In this movie, the ghost is real.
