What are the scariest old books

The 5 scariest books for Halloween

Stephen King - It


The classic, especially for everyone who is skeptical about clowns. The story of the seven youths fighting evil in a small town on the east coast of America was Stephen King's greatest literary success. Anyone who can sleep without a night light after reading this must be of the particularly tough kind.

Andrea Maria Schenkel - Tannöd


The novel tells the story of a six-fold murder on the fictional Tannöd farm during the 1950s. The background to the fictional story is the murder of a peasant family in 1922 on the Hinterkaifeck farm, which has never been solved. Not recommended for readers in lonely forest huts or farmhouses.

Bram Stoker - Dracula


Count Dracula is arguably the most famous undead in the world and Bram Stoker's masterpiece is amazingly creepy even today. Because the bloodthirsty count comes to Europe in the course of the story of Transylvania and is up to mischief here too. For everyone who was clearly too much glistened by the vampires in Twilight.

Sebastian Fitzek - The package


Emma Stein is a psychiatrist, but has not left her home since she was raped herself. Because the serial offender who is responsible for her suffering is still at large. One day Emma takes a package for a neighbor. A man whose name she does not know and whom she has never seen, although she has lived on her street for years. Sebastian Fitzek's freshly released horror thriller is absolutely not for the faint of heart.

Roald Dahl - kisses kisses


An old lady who secretly, quietly and quietly brings her lodgings around the corner. A beekeeper who feeds his own baby with very special means and an excellent schnitzel from a dubious source - Roald Dahl's short stories are just the thing for all fans of subtle horror.
