Top Ten Scariest Books

J C Spencer
 
Hell House
Hell House
"The Scariest Book Ever!!!  And I don't scare easily.  Just the setting - house in the middle of nowhere, with all windows bricked in, beside a tarn.  Don't read this one if you're afraid of the dark."
The Haunting of Hill House
The Haunting of Hill House
"One of the few horror books that was translated well to film version - I mean the original with Julie Harris and Claire Bloom."
Haunted
Haunted
"There was just a "feel" about this one - a slow building of tension that wouldn't let go."
December
December
"Another one that builds that "uh oh" feeling to an almost unbearable tauntness."
Curfew
Curfew
"Phil Rickman again - a very overlooked author of horror.  Things happen in his books - things that aren't always nice."
Bram Stoker's Dracula
Bram Stoker's Dracula
"Munching down on babies is scary no matter how old you are - as a teen I finished this one in a night because I was afraid to put it down and go to sleep."
I Am Legend
I Am Legend
"What if you were the only being that is not a vampire?  Who would be the monster?"
The Tomb (Adversary Cycle/Repairman Jack)
The Tomb (Adversary Cycle/Repairman Jack)
"I never read any of the other Adversary Jack books but this one had a great premise - old castle in Hitler's Germany, Nazis being killed one by one."
House of Leaves
House of Leaves
"Not just disturbing reading but a disturbing format.  Hand writing in the margins, etc.  Go splunking in a normal suburban home."
Living History
Living History
"Dumb bunnies can be scary too!"
