10. It is not a horror novel but “The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon” would be an amazing movie. The story revolves around a girl who got lost in a forest. She is a fan of the Boston Red Sox and she imagined that Tom Gordon, her favourite player, is guiding her safe against unseen monsters.
9. The baseball story in “Blockade Billy”. A short book that tells about the baseball story of the 1950’s makes a good read especially with the additional surprising twists by Stephen King. It is with no doubt that a good film adaptation of this will make it to the blockbuster.
8. “The Gingerbread Girl” will be a challenge for an actress. Since there is only one main character in this story, it needs a thorough audition if ever they are going to make this a movie. It presents an empowering end of a story about a woman, Emily, who was abducted when she was jogging.
