    This is a fun crossover between horror and true crime. If you're really into horror, you may already know a lot of what this book has to offer, but there were things even I was only vaguely familiar with, if at all, regarding the full details. It's a succinct little book, but still gives a really good amount of all the essential info of each case it discusses, and even when Mellor discussed how most of the paranormal cases have since been debunked he did so without diminishing the impact those st This is a fun crossover between horror and true crime.

If you like horror movies, or learning about true crime, and especially if you like both, this is definitely a worthwhile little book to read. Although, do keep in mind that it does spoil each film it talks about.

    I appreciated the straightforward way this book was written. It didn’t seem to embellish any of the details of the true crime stories that inspired famous movies and somehow, that made it an even creepier read. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I’d honestly give it a 4.5, even though it took me quite a while to get through I was taking my time annotating it, as well as making sure I was obtaining the information I was reading. Which I feel was well worth it. This book is like a combination of horror movie talk and true crime documentaries coming together and it’s awesome. I will say there are few movies mentioned that I’m not familiar with but yet I’m familiar with the inspirations that are behind them which I find both ironic and real I’d honestly give it a 4.5, even though it took me quite a while to get through I was taking my time annotating it, as well as making sure I was obtaining the information I was reading.

    If you’re a horror fan and/or read a lot of murdery nonfiction, you probably already know a lit of the info here. But it was interesting. And I wasn’t aware if some of the connections previously, so a fun read anyway.

    Super informative, easy to read. There's definitely information in there for everyone. I'd say I'm pretty well read in ghost stories, horror movies, and all things spooky-- but there was a lot of information in it that I had never heard of before. Wonderful!

    The best true crime book I’ve read so far. Massive fan of horror movies and true crime alike, I think this is a really great book if you’re interested in either or both of those genres.

    Good read! Graphic stories. Scary to know there are such sick and evil people in the world.

    Really fun, easy to casually listen to during spooky season. A little dry at some moments, but I loved the history with a lot of my favorite horror films.

    The true stories are more scary than the actual horror movies. It went through all of my favorites like the Scream Movies, Nightmare on Elm Street, Wolf Creek, Mothman Prophecies and more.
