This book thrusts you into the world of a serial killer, who will stop at nothing to slit your neck.Jim and Stephanie's tires are all of the sudden spiked in the back roads of alambama. They walk to a cheerie worn out inn, where they think they are safe...Until a can drops down the chimmny, by a man on the roof, saying. HOUSE RULES. 1. GOD CAME TO MY HOUSE AND I KILLED HIM. 2. I WILL KILL ANYONE WHO COMES TO MY HOUSE LIKE I KILLED GOD. 3. GIVE ME 1 DEAD BODY AND I MIGHT LET RULLE #2 SLIDE. YOU HAVE UNTIL DAWN... Stephanie and Jim are thrust into a game where the only way out is in,and they only way to win is to loose. Soon every secret they hold is exposed. You feel like you are actually there in the house, hiding with stephany in the closet of snakes. Or being on a spinning dart wheel with jack while having darts thrown into your body. I loved this book and grasped every page. It is so darn amazing. I read it sitting on our boat, in vacation. I could not put it down. It is a very fine book. It is coming to theaters in 2007. Trust me. If you like thick books pick it up. Stop reading this. You are wating valuable reading time!

Wow... I've read this book twice, it's so amazing! The first time I read it, I finished it in 2 days, and even brought it to the dinner table. It was addicting! It's a gripping and thrilling psychological horror thriller. I now officially love Ted Dekker's work. This book is about four guests who find themselves trapped in an old inn out in the middle of nowhere, with a killer on the loose. What does he want? One dead body. Now, it's just a race against time. This book held my interest throughout and never once let me down. Pretty amazing. The new movie based on this book is also pretty good.

Haunted house. Don't read in the middle of the night. And especially not if there's a graveyard underneath your house. And do NOT - oh dang. This probably would have fit better in my 'Good Fantasy' booklist. Good grief, my life stinks. Now I'll have to revise everything. *mumble mumble*

Usually, I don’t like horror, and the only reason I read it is because it was a Christian horror. At least, I assumed it was Christian, since it ended with them finding God and being sorry for their sins. I thought it was a pretty good book, though it may have emphasized a bit too much that people who do wrong will die horribly. In reality, this doesn’t happen in real life. I still liked it, though.
