Horror Audio Books That Should Be Made Into Movies

February 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 353

There isn't anything quite as enjoyable as a well produced horror audio book. There is a lot of work that goes into the production, starting with choosing a good narrator that can really bring out the plot and characters. When I've finished listening to a good audio book, I often am left wanting more. I wonder what the audio book would look like if it were adapted into a film. Here is my list of the best horror audio books that should be considered for movie adaptation.

Coldheart Canyon

Clive Barker's remarkable Hollywood ghost story captures the reader's attention from the start. The characters are all interesting in their unique ways and, like most good tales of suspense, the villains take evil to another level.

Summer of Night

Dan Simmons' excellent novel about children growing up in the 1950s who have to band together in order to fight a terrifying monster that could potentially destroy their whole town. There is something lurking in the basement of the Old Central school and a small group of friends discover the true nature of evil.

Swan Song

Robert McCammon's post apocalyptic tale has often been compared to Stephen King's The Stand and that comparison certainly is appropriate. The story of a young gifted girl named Swan, a schizophrenic bag lady, and a wrestler named Black Frankenstein fighting against a malevolent demon after a nuclear apocalypse has wiped out most of civilization is certainly one of the more enjoyable horror books to be written in the 1980s.

Manhattan Murder Club

John Saul leaves behind the familiar territory of the supernatural to delve into real world evils of homelessness and political corruption in this horror novel. A young man is convicted of a violent crime that he didn't commit. Instead of going to prison, he is kidnapped and wakes up in a room deep in the sewers of New York City. A stranger tells him and another man that they've been chosen for the hunt and if they can make it to the surface, they're free. But if not, they die.

The Rising

Brian Keene's epic zombie apocalypse novel about scientists unleashing demons into our own world which allows them to inhabit the bodies of the recently dead, who awake and kill the living. The book won the Bram Stoker Award for best fiction and it is one of the better zombie novels available on audio.
