  1. Awesome list. Wouldn't mind more like this, unless of course you felt it was undermining your CD column, which is understandable.

  2. I recently read a graphic novel or comic called Wytches it would be an interesting movie.

  3. Wow, I have said this very thing about THE LONG WALK. IMO, it is his best work along with MISERY. I would LOVE this as a movie. No one really knows this book in the King pantheon and I am so thrilled to see someone else praise it.

  4. Hello there , my name is Oscar , I have a youtube channel where i talk about books . I´m mexican but I have an idea for a video in Halloween , like a special of horror books . Im looking for channels that like horror books . If you are intereseted , you can participate and I will thank you a lot . You only need to send me a no more 2 minute video talking about your favorite horror book for Halloween before October 25 🙂 to lamillaliteraria@gmail.com . I will translate your part , Thanks for all , and keep going 🙂 .

  5. The one horror novel that should be filmed is Jack Ketchum's debut novel, Off Season. Not sure why it hasn't. I believe 5 of his other novels have been filmed, including Off Season's sequel, Offspring.

  6. Hey man! Nice videos, I can see that you know a lot about horror novels and I was wondering if you can recommend me a horror novel. I really like novels that are open to interpretation like bird box were you really didn't know why the things were happening. I just bought House of Leaves by the recommendation of a friend, what kind of novels with a creepy feel can you recommend? Thanks in advance and keep up your videos!

  7. Out of the Bachman books I would prefer to see an adaption of Roadwork. The right director could make a beautiful 70's throwback with it. Nice channel. Just subbed.

  8. Try reading the horror book Affliction I have Seen by Trent Mills. This would make a creepy movie.

  9. I'd love to see someone finally adapt a Richard Laymon book for the screen.

    I don't think there is any other horror writer who was so great at the 'high concept' horror novel; the kind of loglines that Hollywood executives would love.

    If it was up to me I'd pick IN THE DARK, which is like THE DA VINCI CODE as written by the Marquis De Sade.

  10. I almost bought "Haunt" a couple of weeks ago but I ended up buying "Hex" by Thomas Olde Heuvelt and I have to say, I really enjoyed that one. It had me on the edge of my seat a lot of the time and what stood out to me was that despite it being a supernatural book it was extremely modern and inclusive of modern elements and technology. I would quite enjoy to see them make a film out of that one.

  11. I would love to have your recommendation for a absolutely horrific like you don't want to read it in the dark kind of book

  12. In some alternate universe, the Long Walk was made in the 80s and had River Phoenix in the cast somewhere. The one I personally can't wait for is Video Night The Motion Picture!

  13. Yo! Summer of Night and its sequel A Winter Haunting by Dan Simmons. How is it even possible that it hasn't been adapted to the big screen yet beats me, but it's one of my personal favs. Your channel rocks btw.

  14. Hi Oscar!
    Thanks! Have you reviewed any Poe stories? I love Poe! My favorite short stories are probably House of Usher, Thou Art The Man, Cask of Amontillado.

  15. Awesome video, I've just recently started reading books. I just started with Tom Clancys Splinter Cell, just picking randomly something that sounded interesting. Then reading The Omen, since I enjoyed the movie. I'm trying to make reading a hobby as I do enjoy a great story. Do you have any recommendations for horror books that wouldn't intimidate a new reader, I'm talking length wise as well as complexity. I'm a huge horror fan in film, but nothing scares me. I'm hoping to find a good intro to horror with a great story and lingering creepyness.

  16. All those HUnger Games/ The Long Walk stories bring to my mind Vonnegut's All The King's Horses, wherein a game of chess is played with real people as the chess pieces..

  17. Laird Barron writes as an author within the Lovecraftian Cthulhu Mythos, that's why it's similar, because it's actually part of the same universe. He's considered one of The Children Of Lovecraft, a sort of protegé of H.P. Lovecraft.
