Scott Thomas's Kill Creek is an independently published horror novel that ranks among the best in the haunted house sub-genre.
While not particularly horrifying (nothing in here filled with me dread), Kill Creek excels at its character development and execution (no pun intended). Kill Creek is a horror novel about the horror genre, and it uses its setup to excellent effect.
Four diverse horror writers are gathered together to participate in an online publicity stunt - stay in America's most haunted house and have a conversation about the state of modern horror. However, the event does not go as planned (and not in the ways you might expect).
At 400 page, Kill Creek is a bit of a slow burn, but its final stretch is a bloody race to the finish in which no character is safe. Kill Creek is a perfect Halloween for those looking for something to fill the 1980s-Stephen King-Hole in their hearts.
