This book is a perfect example of that nostalgic mass-market paperback horror, little-known but brilliantly spooky, with well-written imagery and a complex, enigmatic plot. I highly recommend it to any horror/thriller fan.

Not the book the new movie is based on -- but good none-the-less. Although, I found myself more interested in the "side-line" story of the trials and tribulations of the new sheriff than the serial killer story of the Boogeyman. In any case, it is a quick read, with the last 60 pages or so reading REALLY fast...it all comes down to the wire.

I loved it; creepy as heck and really different for a horror book! I'm a fan of reading about the boogeyman so this drew me in all the more. :)
