About Ghost Story

Peter Straub’s popular 1979 scarefest was considered by Stephen King to be one of the finest horror novels of the late 20th century. Its high-profile big studio movie adaptation was appreciated in many circles but hardly a boxoffice blockbuster, perhaps due to the geriatric nature of the cast.
