Shawn’s Horror Movie and Book Guide

It’s that time of the year… Spooky Season!  I personally love horror movies and books.  For me Halloween season is year round.  Most people think that horror is a one size fits all in books and movies.  But like an onion, there are many layers to it (and I promise they don’t smell as bad as onions).

We all know the more famous names of horror and spookiness.  I will not focus on those writers (such as Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Anne Rice) or movies (such as Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm St, Halloween).  Instead I will show some of the lesser known authors and movies, which deserve more recognition.

CAUTION!! A lot of these have violence and adult content, so I wouldn’t use them to read to your children at bedtime.
