If you are looking for a good read when you are all alone at night, this is it. This book has chapters dealing with clowns, serial killers, movies, and more. I especially enjoyed the chapters dealing with the 'Halloween' and 'Nightmare on elm street' movies. And to think that 'Psycho' and 'Texas chainsaw' were both based on the same man. If you are a big horror buff like I am, this book will give you a lot of information that will either gross you out or think 'that was cool'. Read and enjoy.
