Goldilox and the Three Scares: Rinda Elliott's Top Three Horror Movies

It's that time of year once again - time for Goldilox and the Three Scares!
Because it's called three scares, we asked a few of our favorite authors to give us a scary top three list.

Today's Post Comes From Rinda Elliott

I'm so excited that Rinda Elliott agreed to participate in Goldilox and the Three Scares with us! I read my first book from her this year and I loved it! It was a great mix of creepy and sexy and I loved the paranormal aspect and the bayou setting! I'm so excited to see more of the Berneaux brothers!

My Top Three Horror Movies

The Changeling. This is an old movie and I saw it as a rerun when I was a kid. It scared me to death. In fact, I watched it with my sisters and all three of us were so scared, the movie stuck with us all these years. We still try and watch it on Halloween sometimes.  

Alien. I think of this as science fiction, but it's often listed under horror because it's scary. Really scary. The thought of being trapped on that ship with a relentless creature? Ripley knows nothing about it, which makes it even scarier. I'm a huge fan of this movie and the one that came after.

The Thing. Another old one. I think all of these resonate with me because I was so young when I first saw them all. Plus, they are just really good movies. (Science fiction horror is probably my favorite genre. In fact, I could keep this list going with more up to date films like Pandorum. Loved that one!) In The Thing, it's the same concept. Trapped somewhere with a creature you don't understand. And what makes this one even more terrifying? It mimics--so you can't trust anyone or anything.

Today, we're giving away an ebook copy of Raisonne Curse, the first book in The Brothers Berneaux series ! (Giveaway is U.S. only.)

Raisonne Curse
(The Brothers Berneaux #1)
Rinda Elliott
Release: July 14, 2015
For the past five years, Elita Raisonne has been on the run from a curse that started with her grandmother, and gradually reached out evil tendrils to kill her mother and her aunts. Now, healing from another nasty accident, Elita can feel the curse coming for her like icy breath on the back of her neck.

Her only hope: trek deep into Louisiana’s Atchafayala Basin and ask the mysterious Bernaux brothers for help.

Pryor Bernaux takes one look at the black smudge clinging to Elita like a shroud, and recognizes the work of a powerful hex worker. Together, all three Bernaux brothers could easily break it—if Mercer and Wyatt weren’t away.

As the curse sinks deeper into Elita’s soul, Pryor realizes time is running out for the beautiful redhead who makes him want things he and his brothers swore they’d never have. He has no choice but to help her. But the magical backlash is torture. And without his brothers’ help, it could even be deadly.


About the Author 

I’m an author who loves unusual stories and I credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children.


  1. Great picks! I love Alien. I really need to watch The Thing. Somehow I haven't watched it yet, despite it being a classic.

  2. I would have to say my favorite is either Psycho or The Shining. I also love The Omen, The Exorcist and Halloween. I need to watch The Thing again, it has been many, many years.


I love to read comments!
