This week’s Book Blogger Hop question: Halloween Edition: What scary book would you like turned into a feature film?
Since I don’t generally like scary books or movies, this question seemed like it would be a bit of a challenge…but then I remembered Lois Duncan. I like to think of her as the Hitchcock of writers, because her style of suspense and subtlety feels similar to me. She’s written a lot of very spooky YA novels, some of them fantasy, some not–but even the real-world ones tend to be dark in a fascinating way.
One of her books has already been made into a movie–I Know What You Did Last Summer. I haven’t seen it, because it looks very unlike the original book (which I have read and was very good).
I’d particularly like to see movies of Down a Dark Hall, Killing Mr. Griffin, or Daughters of Eve (review here)…provided, of course, that they were done right!
Do you have a favorite scary book you’d like to see as a movie?
