                                                  I live for horror movies and books, so not much scares me. The creepier the better for me. I read a lot of John Saul books, some are creepy, and some just get you thinking, like, "What would happen if this were true?"

When it comes to movies, "The Others" creeped me out a little. But I live for giant creature movies, like, "Anaconda", "Deep Blue Sea", and stuff like that. What if creatures of that size really existed??  Now thats a scary thought.                                                  

I will forever believe that anythings possible, no matter how crazy or unexplainable.

The Woman In Black by Susan Hill is quite scary, as are the stage and TV adaptations.

The Turn of the Screw, Henry James, has its moments.

I particularly like short stories of the supernatural kind; J Sheridan Lefanu, M R James and Edith Wharton, E A Poe, Saki.

   I loved Phantoms the book is really creepy although they massacred it as a movie.

I write horror and personally I find the mind to be the scariest place of all.

Live well...laugh often..love much

Pull my own chain, but Iím actually a horror writer, and my first book will be out in 2 months, published by Lightning Books, and will be available throughout America and Canada, called THE SOUL REAPERS- the human harvest has begun. By Glen Johnson (thatís me, lol)
Itís a horror story with a twist. Hereís the book synopsis:


Patrick Knightís life turns chaotic when he starts receiving an unexpected series of reanimated visitors, each departing a fragment of a message. A tale unfolds, as old as time itself, relating humanities darkest untold secrets Ė the biblical story from the Devils point of view. Knightís mind becomes unhinged, he repeatedly finds himself covered in blood. Suddenly he becomes a fugitive from the authorities, wanted in connection to multiple killings. But he doesnít travel alone, death and destruction precedes him. Whole villages are eerily silent, corpsesí littering the streets, as a new plague from an unimaginable source starts to sweep the globe. At an old farmhouse Knight comes face to face with mankindís worst nightmare. Buried in a field is the answer to all the riddles that climaxes in a terrifying twist.

Of course, Iím not sure if I should be using this site to give my book free publicity, but itís just you were chatting about horror, scary books, and thatís how I make a living! Hope I havenít stepped over the line? rolleyes.gif

who here has read the books, "stormbreaker" or "among the hidden"?

Is adult entertainment killing our children, or is killing our children entertaining adults?
