Read in January, 1989
The reason I initially read this book when I was younger was because my parents wouldn't let me watch the movie. They had taken my older brother to see it in the theater, and he had ended up spending his nights in a sleeping bag on the floor in their bedroom for a while.
They probably should've just let me watch the movie because i stand by my assertion the book is far more frightening than the movie. The writing is very graphic and disturbing. A great read for those of us that welcome the things that go bump in the night.
