The Omen - David Seltzer

A boy Born of a Jackel?...   I get that! But how does Satan impregnate it? How did they get his sperm? Did he rise up and say hi, I'm Lucifer, son of lies, I'm here to do some sick stuff and make a son?

 

I honestly thought this when reading the book!? I know I'm strange but in the book it has no explanation at all to how they got the devil's Sperm to make Damian, they just said he was born of a jackel?

 

Apart from that I loved this classic horror book, The idea of the Antichrist being born made for a very chilling and spooky tale.

 

David seltzer does an amazing written work on this. The story grips you and sucks you in and I have to say is, I didn't put the book down. The plot involving the thorn's as well as the other character's is, fascinating although a bit Spooky and gruesome. I'm so glad I actually brought the whole collection as I could easily read them all.

A very strange tale....
The Wicker Man - Robin Hardy,Anthony Shaffer

'Much has been said of the strumpets of yore
Of wenches and bawdy house queens by the score
But I sing of a baggage that we all adore,
The Landlord's Daughter . . . '

'. . . Her ale it is lively and strong to the taste
It is brewed with discretion and never with haste
You can have all you like
If you swear not to waste
The Landlord's Daughter . . .'

 

So this book, I remember watching brief clips of the film on channel 4 years ago, but never quite got round to getting the book, although The wicker man is a book I've wanted to get for my Book collection for ages I finally got it.

Took me really less than two days to read this it's a strange tale set in the isles of Scotland,

 

Neil Howie, a Scots police Sergeant and fine upstanding Christian fellow, receives an anonymous letter saying that a girl has gone missing on Summerisle, a small island only barely under Scot protection, thirty-eight miles west of the last of the Outer Hebrides. Howie goes out to investigate, and finds that, while all the inhabitants of the island are seemingly quite forthcoming with what they know (save the none of them acknowledge the missing girl so much as exists), Howie is torn between his desire to see the case through and his offence at the various heathen goings-on on the decidedly non-Christian island.

 

This book blew my mind quite frankly, and after watching the film again. I was highly impressed. It flows though a strange, surreal sort of way. And I'm not going to lie, I didn't like the main protagonist Neil Howie, I think the that the author just made him very dislikeable and prune like.

 

 

Give this a read some time it's one of those horror classics that Makes you think the end will stay with you for a long time.

The House on the Borderland - William Hope Hodgson

Wow... i tell you, I've read some crazy stuff in my time. BUT this tale. takes all those Biscuit's and dunks them in Gin! in a really good way though! I got this book on amazon it had some other stories with it i've yet to read. But anyway back to this strange tale.

 

 

American horror writer H. P. Lovecraft listed The House on the Borderland and other works by Hodgson among his greatest influences. i can definitely see why. Let's get to the Nitty Gitty without giving to much away, two men on a camping trip in rural ireland ((Yay!)) stumble on a old manuscript a diary of sorts. it tell's an absolutely crazy story. and you the reader and totally drawn into the world of... The only way i can describe it is, mythological beast gods, demons, and other "bestial horrors.in pig form.

 

 

Then it totally switches up and you have in the plot Green sun's and forever Twilight's.

 

 

This book left me with a really spooky uneasy feeling i've never quite felt with a book before. I could only imagine how it left people in the day's it was first printed! i felt there was so many unanswered question's to the book. all in all i really liked it.
