Everyday object it will ruin for you: audiobooks. You never know what ancient incantations they contain.

Poltergeist: There's nothing creepier than a little kid in a horror film, particularly one that a malevolent spirit takes a liking to. Not even an exorcist can deal with the powers terrorising this family in their new home.
Everyday object it will ruin for you: televisions.

The Exorcist: See above re. creepy kids and append “ones that have been possessed by the devil” - the raw horror of Linda Blair’s levitating body will haunt you for weeks.

Cuddly horrors for anyone who wants to sleep anytime soon:
Hocus Pocus: You’d think you’d be careful about what incantations you read out in Salem on Halloween night lest you accidentally raise three youth-hungry witches from the dead. Equal amounts of scares and shenanigans will have you trembling with fear and laughter.
Everyday object it will ruin for you: candles - and not for health and safety reasons.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: We challenge you to have more fun than a big screen showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show; bringing forth unnatural life, and body swapping all in one hilarious package.
Everyday object it will ruin for you: You probably won’t turn up unannounced at any spooky local castles for a while - or maybe you will...
