I watched it around that age. I didn't know what it was, no one told me I was watching a horror. The movie flew right over my head and I thought it was a really long P.S. A. for Stranger Danger.

I find with good horror, it doesn't make me jump, but it makes me stay awake at night, it makes people sit there and worry about what would happen if they were in that situation.
Not to mention that of what I have read of his work, a lot of it is more thriller than horror.

Could you recommend a good scary book then? Im struggling to find any decent ones..

i might be a pussy for it, but the russian sleep experiment was one of those that kept me awake

I honestly wish I could read King books now. But I'm currently reading Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and I have to finish this book, and the next before I look into new books. But I have seen a few movies based off of his stories, and the actual plot is quite good

I know what you mean bro.

That's why I like Marble Hornets

That's the exact reason why I read Lovecraft. Got his complete works sat in front of me.
User avatar #80 to #4 - TheNewRavager (03/25/2013) [-]
Lovecraft is amazing.
#31 to #3 - kingthatcrawls ONLINE (03/25/2013) [-]
Indeed. Horror is meant to horrify.
#64 to #3 - dtanobo (03/25/2013) [-]
Are there any scary books/movies you can suggest? I'm dying for something to horrify me. I love the subtle scares rather than jumps. Like something on the corner of the screen that isn't obvious

If you like Spanish books, Carlos Ruiz Zafón has made pretty cool horror books.
#78 to #64 - drinpa ONLINE (03/25/2013) [-]
John Dies at the End is a good book. I'm not really sure if it's horror in the classic sense, but it's pretty creepy at times and a really really really weird book. You may want to check out other peoples spoiler-free reviews on like Amazon before purchasing, but it creeped me out pretty good at times.
User avatar #12 to #3 - danniegurl (03/25/2013) [-]
to me, thriller is more that mess-with-your-mind scary that keeps you awake at night. horror is more blood and guts type stuff.
#46 to #12 - anon (03/25/2013) [-]
Just me being curious: Do you see a difference between horror movies and slasher movies?
User avatar #95 to #46 - danniegurl (03/25/2013) [-]
yeah, slasher seems like purely blood and guts, while horror is closer to thriller.
User avatar #121 to #95 - foxxywithpaws (03/25/2013) [-]
what if John Carpenter movies?

They **** with your mind.

I think my favorite novel by Stephen King is about a school teacher who goes back in time through a worm hole located in a closet of an old diner to stop Lee Harvey Oswald from assassinating JFK.

I **** you not, it's an actual book

I took this as the kids are running away because Stephen King's story is so good and the rest of the class sucks at writing so they are running away to avoid reading their writing.

MFW i'm from Maine and everyone ***** all over it....
I met him a couple times, he's a great guy and I really enjoy his work.
User avatar #98 to #69 - TardytheTurtle (03/25/2013) [-]
my stepmom had to cater a party for him once, she says that he and his family were annoying
something like they expected you to know everything they wanted without them telling you
but that's not him in his normal attitude so you both could be right
#16 - jackalcureofprusia (03/25/2013) [-]
So even in his youth he was coked out of his mind?   
That's his own words when writing his older novels.

Stephen King is good, the only problem I had with him was the fact that most of his stories have no real resolution. I mean it works because that's what he was intending, but I like to know why/how something happened, and he rarely gives you that. You get the story and see what's going on, but that's it. Works for a lot of people obviously, it just kind of bugs me.

When you write 50 books a year, you can't expect them all to be gems.

If you know this guy, then you've read some real horror stories
User avatar #34 to #30 - olisaurus (03/25/2013) [-]
My brother knows him and has never even touched one of his books. So yeah
User avatar #79 to #34 - seniorpokeman (03/25/2013) [-]
Really now? Is your brother over 80 years old? Because last time I checked, H.P's been dead for over 76 years.
#81 to #79 - osboom (03/25/2013) [-]
Did you just say that?
Really?

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._P._Lovecraft
Am I thinking of the wrong H.P.Lovecraft?
Because his wiki article says he died in 1937.
#84 to #83 - osboom (03/25/2013) [-]
He was saying that he knew him like you know him...
Not that he knew him personally...
User avatar #124 to #84 - seniorpokeman (03/25/2013) [-]
The correct way of saying it would have been "my brother knows OF him," or "my brother knows ABOUT him." The way he said it implied knowing him personally, which is why I was confused.
User avatar #127 to #124 - olisaurus (03/25/2013) [-]
It was already obvious enough, unless my younger brother was 80 years old as you said.

I'm sorry I wasn't clear enough for your autistic brain to understand. My Brother Has Heard Of This Guy But Has Never Ever Touched One Of His Books.

Horror doesn't even begin to describe it...
#41 to #37 - osboom (03/25/2013) [-]
And, who is he?
#49 to #41 - comradewinter ONLINE (03/25/2013) [-]
His name is H.P. Lovecraft. Mostly known for being the creator of Cthulu.

If your child is reading Lovecraft, you should know that Satan is now the least of your problems.

I'd run too if I had to hear another story based in Maine and loaded with a stereotypical group of an alcoholic, an abused wife/lover, an abusive/adulterer husband, wrapped up in an abstract name that has nothing to do with the actual antagonist (Langoliers, IT, Tommy-knockers, the 'Myst')

Green Mile and Shawshank redemption are both amazing books...


And they aren't scary.

His book Desperation was very good also, and I didn't find it scary in any way.
