Four More Used Bookstore Horror Finds

Managed to find four more interesting looking horror titles while browsing the used bookstore the other day.  BLACK CHRISTMAS is the most intriguing of them in my opinion, though will probably be the last one of this group that I sit down with given that I want to wait until the Christmas season is upon us once again before reading it.  

Anyone read any of these?  If so, how were they?  If not, which one looks the most interesting to you?

Ha, I just posted the cover art for THE SENTINEL earlier today! Haven't read it though. That BLACK CHRISTMAS seemed kinda lame after I read the first few chapters, kinda like an old TV murder mystery that might or might not be supernatural.

I saw that! Too funny. Great minds and all that, right! I started THE SENTINEL and it is pretty good thus far. Written in that very old school, pre-80s book, book almost feels heavy, type of horror. Not sure if that makes sense, but that's the thought that keeps popping up in my head.

I read The Sentinel back when it came out and it was high on my list of creep- tastic creep outs.A compact little read-though somewhat cheezy now I expect. I dont think the movie came out till a bit later, but it serves the book well.

I really enjoyed THE SENTINEL as well. Had a great feel to it. Dense, as was the style of horror novels in those pre-80s boom days, yet not overwhelmingly so.

I haven't seen the movie yet. I will have to check that out.
