Abandoned Hospital

Back in February on RA for All, I posted about my love of author John Green's vlog.  Click here for details about what he is doing.

Yesterday, his vlog entry was very horror appropriate.  He visited an abandoned hospital in the LA area with "not quite horror" author extraordinaire Ransom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children.

Not only is the video creepy, but Green's narration talks about the appeal of horror at length while he is showing the creepy scenes.  It is especially enlightening since Green admits to not being a horror fan.

This is an articulate and fun look into how the average patron, who would not probably call themselves a horror fan, still might like to feel creeped out once in awhile.  Use this link or watch the embedded video below.
