Pictorial: 7 Awesome Horror Novels That Might Make For Awesome Movies


7awesomehorrornovels

Written by: James Keen

I’m pretty certain most of you out there have a list of books that you’d dearly love to see filmed. This is currently my own. It’s in no way a comprehensive list but given the spirit of the holiday season I had two choices; write this or eat chocolate until my skin boils. I’d love to hear your own ideas as to what you’d think would make for a potentially splendid cinematic adaptation of something that got your gore-soaked mental cogs whirring. Just a side-note; author Todd Keisling would have made this list with his ‘Monochrome’ series -something that, to my mind, is ripe for a movie adaptation but it seems he’s taking his own sweet time with his final entry in the trilogy. With that said, I’m off before I’m gripped by the Cretins…

    Some of the novels you listed, I’ve read and can agree with you on. The others have caught my curiosity, and I now I feel compelled to read them and lose my soul within man’s inhumanity. Great list, James!

      …sounds plain, uh, Nutty. Looking forward to your next book, sir. I understand there may be not one, but two novels on the way this year? This one was a blinder. Happy Holidays to ya, Mr Schmidt! 🙂

  3. Happy Holidays (belated) to you as well. I’m thinking there should be some song and dance numbers in the movie…hopefully I can seal an option deal this year

      …I think you’re onto something here, sir. Get Baz Luhrman to sign on the line which is dotted and you’re golden… 🙂
