Critic Reviews

"Jason Blum has done it again with this collection of startlingly imaginative and remarkably potent tales. Anyone who loves a brilliant story - scary or otherwise - should read this book." (Ryan Murphy, cocreator of American Horror Story)
"Like the best horror movies, these stories begin in the real world, then slyly move you to a darker place, a nightmare world just beyond our reality. I enjoyed my visit to The Haunted City - but I am still shivering." (R. L. Stine, author of Goosebumps and Fear Street)
"I found myself double checking that my door was locked. This anthology is a compelling reminder that it does not take anything but a good story to terrify." (M. Night Shyamalan, writer and director of The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable)

It's okay.

Some of the stories are pretty darn good but others drag. I wouldn't buy it again.

Ok but nothing super scary

The book as a whole was lacking in a big way nothing that gave me chills or made me afraid to go to sleep as the Blum company states in the opening. A lot of the tales kind of leave you guessing without much to go on. And novel 15 jeez I thought would never end! Just endless ranting about nothing to end up being nothing at all scary. Step it up Blum.....

just good!

I enjoyed each of these stories. Only criticism, it threw me off of the story line a few times when there was female narration for a male character. Minor thing really.
