Saturday Frights: The House of Leaves

Saturday-Frights-Sean-Hartter

Let me ask ya creeps, have you ever read a book that so completely enraptured you in its spell that it was near impossible to put it down, and if you finally did, the narrative was all you could think about? Well, for me that book was Mark Z. Danielewski’s 2000 (14 years have passed already?!!) masterpiece, The House of Leaves; a tale of a very strange house containing a passage that leads to a space that defies imagination. If you haven’t read the book, you should go out right now and do so, I’ll wait…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

O.k., I’m not going to wait. I totally lied to you, and for that I’m sorry*. Anyway, as is often the case with bestselling books, other people kinda like this thing too…and apparently like to make all sorts of cool-arsed videos to prove it! Let’s take a look fiends:

If you’ve read the book (or have found cool fan videos as well), feel free to share below ghouls!

*I lied again. The Ouija Board Kid is sorry for nothing! NOTHING! Well almost nothing…I regret that extra burrito I ate for lunch. It feels like my belly is filled with 20 tons of dirt from Dracula’s castle…

Daniel XIII

Daniel XIII: equally at home at a seance as he is behind the keyboard. Raised on a steady diet of Son of Satan comics, Kaiju flicks and Count Chocula comes the proprietor of The House of Thirteen Doors. What arcane knowledge lurks behind the preternatural eyes of the Ouija Board Kid?
