Same here. I still to this day cannot
read Salems Lot without having nightmares. Or go near a window at night. lol!
I love horror books, but what really scares me are authors like Dean Koontz, who can weave real life issues into his stories along with supernatural stuff. Like the Bioethics in One Door Away From Heaven and the government manipulation in Dark Rivers of The Heart. Or a doctor with a God Complex and drugs being able to destroy a life like in False Memory...
