Horror novels make for a good and scary read. But when they hit the big screen, they become even scarier when done right. And there are 4 horror books that are being adapted that we are excited about. Keep reading to find out which ones they are!
In my opinion, horror novels are the only books that can be improved upon when making it into a movie or television show. Unlike most novels, these novels can get away with not having the best character development. The focus is often on the scary part and movies can bring that out better than books most of the time.
4 Horror Books That Are Being Adaped onto the Big Screen
- The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe
- The Changeling by Victor LaValle
- Salem’s Lot by Stephen King
- Dracula by Bram Stoker
Four Movies to Look out for
While this is a short list, it does include a few classics such as Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher and Dracula by Bram Stoker. I would love the Dracula movie to be based off the novel but that doesn’t seem to be the case. There have been a lot of movies about the novel and Dracula has changed a lot since the novel was first published.
That is all for the 4 horror books that are being adapted this year. Which ones are you excited about? Are there any ones we left off that should also have been included? Let us know in the comments below!
