Reddit thread on the scariest books

Love lists. Always fascinating to see what other people think of as scary. To me, the scariest books are the early works of Clive Barker and almost anything by H. P. Lovecraft.

  • To me, most any classic “children’s” books are absolutely horrifying. WTF were they smoking.

    “At the Mountains of Madness”, “The Call of Cthulhu”, “The Shadow out of Time”…after all these years, I still can’t read these books at night except in a well-lit room.

    Maybe Guillermo del Toro will change his mind about shelving his movie version of “Mountains”…could be the best SF/horror movie ever.
