Scary Books To Read Before Halloween
You’ve probably seen many movie renditions of this classic horror tale about the legendary vampire. Count Dracula has been portrayed by Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee, Frank Langella and more. But nothing compares to reading the original book by Bram Stoker.
No matter what you think about the writing style and abundance of monsters in Stephen King’s literary world, this early book about an entire town of vampires is creepy and suspenseful and will keep you up at night.
Witches, ghosts, and regicide. Shakespeare’s play is about an ambitious couple who stoop to murder only to have it drive them mad with guilt and paranoia. Was it their fate or was it their desires?
