I need a good book reccomendation. I am looking for a book to read that is spooky. I know it sounds kind of dumb, but I read the exorcist and it was a really freaky book. I would like to find something that makes me keep looking behind me while I am reading it. Could be fiction or real. You guys know anything?

The book the movie "Event Horizon" was based on.

"Swan Song" by Robert Mcammon had me freaked out for a while, but I like the whole post-apocalyptic thing.

The Amityville Horror, by Jay Anson (if you believe in ghosts)

Communion, by Whitley Strieber (if you believe in aliens)

Unintended Consequences, by John Ross (if you believe in our .gov)

Of course I believe in the .gov! Everywhere you look you can find evidence of the .gov! The sheeple who claim there is no .gov have had the wool pulled over their eyes by the government coverup! If you like short stories, try some HP Lovecraft. You'll either love it or hate it, there really isn't too much middle ground.

Oh, McCamon is good for creepy stuff. "Usher's Passing" was pretty freaky. "Gone South" isn't spooky per se, but it has some good chilling moments.

truly scary books are hard to come by.

I too just finished the Exorcist for probaly the 10th or 12th time.

I have never found another book that affected me the way that it does.

"Salem's Lot" comes close

"The Cipher" by Kathe Koja is pretty creepy.

I have over 4,000 fiction novels and I would be hard pressed to name more than 5-6 that truly "scared" me. Many of them disturb me or make me think.
