The master of horror gets dark with this one. In the prologue he states that this novel almost was never published because of how dark it is. After reading this I completely understand. Very well written and something that could leave you with nightmares. This book is very adult themes and language. I am impressed by the delivery but cannot recommend to and sane person. If you’ve seen the movie then the book follows it pretty well from what I remember. Definitely the things that go bump in the night.
