This question contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[The book makes reference to the hunchbacked assistant in the previous Frankenstein movie stealing a criminal brain to be used for the monster. The assistant is said to be named Igor, but there was no Igor in the 1931 Frankenstein movie. The hunchbacked assistant's name was Fritz. Why call him Igor in this book? (hide spoiler)]

I had never read a novelization of a film before and I needed a "Halloween" book so I thought I'd give this a try. This is from a series of other novelizations (supposedly ghost written by Ramsey Campbell) that are surprisingly collectable. This copy I found was the first one I'd ever seen for under 20 bucks. Anyway, the book itself was fine. Fast. Fun. Satisfying.
John Ramsey Campbell is a British writer considered by a number of critics to be one of the great masters of horror fiction. T. E. D. Klein has written that "Campbell reigns supreme in the field today," while S. T. Joshi has said that "future generations will regard him as the leading horror writer of our generation, every bit the equal of Lovecraft or Blackwood."More about Ramsey Campbell...
