    https://www.amazon.com/Exorcist-Anni.../dp/006209436X (different than the original novel)

    https://www.amazon.com/Exorcist-Will.../dp/0061007226 - this is the original

    "Legend of Hell House" was a 1970 movie but the book is FAR better...Roddy McDowell's performance notwithstanding. The book includes elements not included in the movie screenplay which would have made the film much longer, expensive to make and far scarier.

    "The Shining" movie by Kubrick, though a masterpiece unto itself, can never capture the extreme detail or sense of scary solitude that the book does.

    As for the "Exorcist", if every element of the book were incorporated into the film I am sure that people would actually have died of fright. The movie shows only the extent of the director's vision of what a scene conveys while the book opens up the doorway to the mind's infinite possibilities, and with the authors' settings in place it makes for one scary read.

    I like The hunger by Alma Katsu which tells about the vampires. I have dream to write some cool novels in the future too. But now I need to improve my Englsih proficiency and writing skills. I want to write good essays like this guys

    RTM REPLY - I was curious so I checked...although "The Hunger" by Alma Katsu is indeed a novel about vampires, it is not the same novel that the movie "The Hunger" starring Susan Sarandon and Catherine Denueve starred in with David Bowie in 1983. THAT "Hunger" book was written in 1981 by someone named Whitley Streiber.

    Thanks...I never checked that aspect of one of my favourite movies before until now !!
