Worth a re-read!!

Ok so the premise seemed kinda..... dumb. Killers in the walls? BUT THEN I GAVE IT THE CHANCE IT DESERVED. SO. GOOD. Will read again!! This is the book that made me dive into Graham Masterton's other works, and now I'm addicted to the man's work. THANKS A LOT, GRAHAM. I TOTALLY NEEDED ANOTHER ADDICTION LIKE I NEED A HOLE IN THE HEAD. PREESH.

Fantastically gory stuff

i have to say that this is quite possibly one of the most amazing books I have ever read. Masterson graphic descriptions chilled me to the bone, almost to the point of not wanting to turn the page to see what happens next. I would recommend this book to any horror fan!!

Don't Go Into the Cellar at Night...Alone !

Walkers is one horror novel that rivals anything written by Stephen King or similar authors of the horror genre.Graham Masterton does it again with this chilling novel.Masterton is known for his candid brand of horror writing without getting the reader lost or sidetracked. The first story of Masterton I read back in the 70's was The Manitou (story and movie about an evil ancient Indian spirit entering the world through a tumor in a woman's neck !). The major difference in Walkers is the story and action move at an alarming rapid pace without ever losing the reader or the reader's interest!The central character Jack finds himself yearning for a greater prospective goal in his midlife. He thinks he finds this realization in an old abandoned 60 year old building which once housed 137 criminally insane patients. He soon discovers the building's horrific secret when his only 9 year old son suddenly vanishes. What is the link between his son's enigmatic disappearance and the abominable secret hidden in the structure of the sanitarium's walls? You must read the book to find out !I highly recommend this title based on it's author's incredible and otherworldly imagination. This is not a novel about ghosts, nor about a haunted house (in the typical sense). The novel almost echoes a resemblance to a late 80's to early 90's film called People Under The Stairs (or vice versa)... What the reader discovers is that for every fear or phobia he or she might have or think they have, this novel by Graham Masterton will surely instill yet another one ! Do not read this novel alone at home near a brick wall...In fact, you may never look at any of your walls, ceiling, or cellar the same way again !...


It grabbed me NOW....I've read many GM novels since....this one is the ONE that still gets you thinking....

Oh my God

I picked this book up from the library without knowing anything about it beforehand - the blurb on the back and the cover image enticed me, so I picked it up. This is not my usual way of going about reading books but I cannot express how glad I was to have laid my hands on this one. I'm pretty hard to scare or impress but this book scared the absolute s--- out of me. It stayed with me for weeks, months. I tell you: after reading this you'll never look at the walls the same again. Half way through reading it I had to go outside because I was too terrified to keep my back to the wall; but then, after reading a bit more, I realized that leaving the house wasn't enough: this book stay with you no matter where you are. Gives you nightmares. I'd only recommend reading this if you are a true horror fan; otherwise, prepare to be tormented. And because it had such an effect on me, it was brilliant. Once a book affects a person it has achieved its purpose.

Watch out for the demented.....

What can I say but another MASTERton piece! Great layout and great suspense, this book will most likely keep your ears open for noises in the walls. I recommend this book to ALL who love horror and suspense to the highest degree! I also read that GM is trying to make this book into a movie which I seriously think would be a big hit! You horror lover's will NOT be disappointed!
