In the weird fiction novel The Dunwich Horror, H.P. Lovecraft details the blasphemous
occurrences that resulted in an incident known as The Dunwich Horror. The travesty began with
“hideous screams” that signaled the birth of Wilbur Whateley, a brilliant but grotesque child
(Lovecraft 143). Wilbur, alongside his grandfather, took part in strange rituals that caused the
hills to shake and inspired hatred and fear in living. However, his search for blasphemous

Like all the other Screams, the 2022 version definitely lives up to the hype with tons of humor
and scary moments to keep the viewer on the edge of their seat. Not to mention, Actors: Neve
Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette returning to their iconic roles in Scream to deliver
another great sequel. That being said, nothing beats the 1996 Scream nor its originality, as I
wouldn’t say Scream 5 was necessarily needed but cool nonetheless.

Summary:

This is about a girl named Barbra Gordan. She was shot and is paralyzed from her hips down. She is admitted into a rehab facility which is pretty suspicious. She can hear voices in the walls and once patients start going missing she starts investigating.

This book keeps you guessing. And even if you think you've got it figured out, you probably don't.

And the subtle reminders of paranoia throughout the book, even from the beginning, were very compelling. It kept me interested and made me want to read more. It made me very uneasy whenever Mira would feel strange out of the blue, and reminded me to be suspicious of everyone in the car.

It gave me chills. The setting/tone of this book was eerie and spooky and I kind of felt like a character in the story myself. The ending was unexpected. It's a definite read for those who like thrillers or mysteries.
