Yeah we were thinking of reading it as the movie is playing at Cannes currently and will be out theatrically by the end of the year.


For the most part I don't get me knickers in a twist about a book I like getting turned into a movie, I understand that stuff has to be cut and stories are told in different ways in different artforms, but I really don't see this one working.

To me the point of the writing style was make us conscience of labels. None of the characters have names, neither do the streets, there's nothing that gives us any idea of where it's taking place or even when. When you start putting in actors and using locations you're cutting out the major development of the theme in my opinion.

I'm guessing the movie will just end up being like Children Of Men 2: The Childrening.

I'm in if others are interested. Either for Sept if we wanna get going quickly, or for October.

I want to think a little about some noms. If we do end up doing October, then maybe something scary?

I like the cut of your gib, ModMoo...

I WOULD say The Stand by Stephen King, since I've sort of been looking for an excuse to read that, but that bad boy's like 1200 pages, so...


I read the Stand every other year, and I think I'm due, but it literally takes me two months... :(

I will throw this one out there (again) it really is a fun read. "The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril"

"Let me tell you a story. You tell me where real ends and pulp begins."

Zombies, the shadow, lovecraft, Doc Savage and L. Ron Hubbard in a noirish nightmare

I've read The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril and while there are 3 super creepy moments with HP Lovecraft the story itelf isn't that engaging in my opinion. If people are in the mood for a scary creepy pulp thriller then let me suggest Dennis Lehane's Shutter Island.

I came because of Moo's siggy.

So whats the scoop? Where is the horror? Whats the book? Or are you reading something else currently?

I could go for anything with Zombies for a good Halloween book. :D



Ahhh. "The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril"

Is that the Halloween book on the list then? I don't know if I can read that. The word pulp was used in the description too many times. It was annoying. :|

Good to have you, CM! Any other suggestions?

I would love to throw some out, but honestly I don't read horror/thrillers that often (though I think it would be fun for October). It doesnt HAVE to be that, either, if someone else has another book they are burning to read...

Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

H.P Lovecraft is HUGELY influential, you probably know a good deal of his ideas from other books, films and TV shows. Buffy's ancient demon mythology is pretty much pure Lovecraft, the first Hellboy film's giant sleeping gods are ripped straight from Lovecraft's Cthulu mythos. In a nutshell it's about man's total insignificance compared to these huge ancient beings. Just one look at their total otherworldliness will drive you mad because the human brain isn't built to be able to deal with it. It's a mixture of science and the supernatural - mathematics is a key to the dimensions where the Old God's reside. The language is dense and rich and earthy, highly enjoyable. Lovecraft was deeply racist by many accounts and it does show up in some of his work but it's not so prevalent as to put you off. You should definitely give it a try, Ribs. Start with The Call Of Cthulu or Re-Animator, the latter isn't so caught up with the Old God stuff but it's supremely creepy and chilling.

EDIT: Moo, you'd dig his stuff too I think.

I'd be up for trying some Lovecraft if everyone else wants to. I scanned the other list and Something Wicked popped up for me as well. Been a long while since I read that.

Fuck a duck. I am too sick just now to look at that LONG ASS LIST Stereos! HEH HEH! Very helpful though.

Sorry Moo, I don't read much horror either (used to), so whilst I can complain and nit pick (very useful qualities) I cannot offer up a better suggestion. The closest I get to horror is true crime, which I do read on occasion. It is a sick and disturbing thing to do however, and I don't recommend it.

I will likely go along with whatever gets picked unless I think it sounds shit. In which case I may gripe and moan and consider mentioning how I picked something WAY better and more horrifyingly fantastic. Then, it will occur to me that nobody actually cares, so I will sit and grumble silently to myself and shutthefuckup. :?

I will look over that list though cause I am interested in it.

UH, is there a scheduled start day for this dealio or what?

Do we try to stay at the same pace?

I have never done any book club reading. I needs to know the rules.

Well, if you haven't read The Haunting of Hill House, you should. I love the sound of this woman's writing - it's one of the books I enjoy reading aloud because, like Shakespeare or Christina Rossetti, there's music in her words.

"No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone."

Lebont should be shot and pissed on for his "version" of this story.
Then dug up and done again.

I really love the Robert Wise movie based on the novel, so if you guys decide to go with that, I'll try and track down a copy and improve my overall reading speed so I can take part.

Yeah, we'll leave the poll up through this week per custom, but it seems like pretty much a formality at this point. You'd probably be pretty safe ordering The Haunting online or something.
