BOOKS THAT WILL BURROW INTO YOUR SOUL THIS HALLOWEEN [SHOWING SLIDE 10 OF 10]

At this time of year, torture porn, suspenseful slashers and emo-teenage vampires aren’t in short supply on TV. As Halloween nears, it’s the perfect time of year to unsettle into a little psychological horror to fully grab your imagination. After reading Stephen Dobyns’ The Burn Palace you may think twice about sleeping overnight in a hospital. Ryu Murukami’s In the Miso Soup takes you through three grisly and savage days with a sex tour guide into the sleazy demimonde of Tokyo’s worst streets. And Bret Easton Ellis masterfully creates a meta witches’ brew while casting himself as the reluctant anti-hero in Lunar Park. Here are our picks to sustain fright through All Hallows’ Eve.
