Paul Tremblay bricht eine Lanze für modernen Horror. Im Essay „The H Word: The Politics of Horror” argumentiert er, dass Horror nicht reaktionär und konservativ sein muss, um erfolgreich zu sein. Er hält das Ende von „Der Exorzist“ für einen Fehlschlag, weil Regan und ihre Mutter nach dem schrecklic...

A Head Full of Ghosts is a clever and layered novel. The Barrett family's tragic story is told by the youngest daughter, Merry, in interviews with a writer and as flashbacks. The same story is dissected and deconstructed by a blogger who reviews, considers and discusses the reality TV show filmed in...

I liked this, but I didn't love it, and over a month later I'm still not sure I can pinpoint why. But I'm going to try. This book definitely gets its creep on - there are a couple scenes that will stick with me for a good long while. The scene is set masterfully, and I'm absolutely transported to th...

So, I'm going to issue a SPOILER WARNING right here and now at the outset. If you want my 100% spoiler-free revie...

This isn't the kind of book I'd usually read, but if it was a film I would pick it up in a heartbeat. The inside cover had me from mentioning that the narrator's sister has an early-onset case of Schizophrenia and then reading on further to realise that this is a horror novel -- well, I was definite...
