Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments I read The Fog years and years ago. It still haunts me.

I'd never heard of cricket or cricket bats before I'd read it. Maybe that's why I have no desire to watch cricket...

Spencer (spencerwhcp) | 21 comments I will second that about The Fog. Of course a misguided upbringing seeing how absolutely everything evil occurs in foggy forests on Hammer House of Horror didn't help either

Elle (louiselesley) | 7913 comments Was the movie (of the same name) based on this book?
I know that it was in America but the premise seems very similar!

(Are we having a thread for each genre now :O?)

Kath | 1965 comments I struggled to finish Rats and had to give up on Lair cos they scared me too much!

maybe i'll give it another crack one of these days...

Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Well, I thought genre based threads are a good idea! So there!

Nothing stopping us from doing separate threads for each book as well, of course...

Plus there's a lot of books that can't be pigeon holed into a single genre, of course.

Oh, I've never read Lair!

I did Rats. I found it deliciously creepy.

Spencer (spencerwhcp) | 21 comments The Rats and Lair were great. I tried a new author recently (Mira Grant) and read her book, on Kindle, called Feed. It surprised me that I liked it was not my usual sort, involving zombies as it does! But for all that it was a pleasant surprise.

Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11198 comments I've read all 3 of the rats trilogy, but not for a while. I love reading horror books but very few scare me.

*wanders in hiding behind a cushion. Peeps at thread then runs away screaming*

I don't read horror as I'm too much of a scaredy cat!

Philip (sarah) Willis | 5174 comments I loved the rat's trilogy,also enjoyed The Fog. I take a masochistic pleasure in scaring myself witless.
Rosemary's Baby was memorable for me also anything by Dennis Wheatley.

Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Has anyone read a really good recently published horror novel lately?

Emma (emzibah) | 4396 comments Did I read correctly somewhere (and I cannot for the life of me remember where I read it) that there is going to be a new film of Stephen King's 'IT'? am not sure how I feel about that to be honest. I grew up with the original!!

Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Yea I've heard that too... I heard about it in the horror group on Facebook, I remember clearly saying that what totally freaked me out was the dude's mole :/

Kath Middleton | 25063 comments And did I mention
Words to the Wise and
Words To The Wise: Book Two - I can't believe I haven't! This series is just classy. Horror, fantasy, philosophy and a deliciously dense but creative linguistic style. He is one of the authors that I can become passionate about.
Trust me. I'm not a doctor!
