These five books will scare you so much, you won't even need to watch anymore Halloween movies.
Stephen King's thriller about Pennywise the killer clown will creep you out with more than just cheap thrills. There's so much symbolism within It's pages and oh so many metaphors. What hits you the hardest are the hidden meanings behind the traumas each member of the Loser's club faces.
It's not a novel, it's a poem. Probably, Poe's most famous work. What makes it creepy is the main character's slow decent into madness.

For those of you interested in psychological thrillers, The Woman In Black is the book for you this Halloween season.
Sarah Schmidt's adaptation of the legendary Lizzie Borden story will make you rethink everything you think you know about that horrific day on which the Borden's were axed to death.
