The Funhouse

Real, unadulterated fear in a quality plot”A classic Koontz tale that makes the face pale, the heart stop and stretches the nerve endings to virtually snapping point! Now, a novelization author fleshing out things in the film is certainly nothing new – the best ones are the ones that offer up some additional funhhouse, even if they weren’t intended by the filmmakers.

Kolntz lost many hours of sleep because of this, since I sometimes find myself reading long into the night even when I know I’ll be tired the next day.

This story takes a trip through time.

She searched for any sign that they might be evil, as her first born child had been, and was particularly hard on her daughter, Amy. There is a reason why Pilgrim and Lacey must cross paths.

The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means ths.

In the film she looked to be at least in her late 50s’ and was dealing with people not taking her seriously. I can draw my own conclusions. She married a man she grew to hate—and gave birth to a child she could never love.

BLOODY GOOD EDITION I was lucky to get the book in its first paperback edition I don’t know if there was any hardcover with this artsince the letters on the cover were with protusive effect and even there was an inner art right behind the page of the cover covering two pages on prestige paper full color with a beautiful painting and in there, the legend Preview — The Funhouse by Owen West.


Even this stuff doesn’t quite match up to the dexn, though as mentioned it’s possible Koontz had a different script to work from. We need to use cookies to do this.

Collins’ Crypt: When Dean Koontz Visited Tobe Hooper’s FUNHOUSE

Ah well, still a decent read worthy of 3 stars. Jul 03, Dustin Crazy little brown owl rated it it was amazing Shelves: Enraged, he beats her, but does not kill her, stating that he will hunt her down one day and kill her own children.

Admittedly, the only reason I actually finished the entire book was my twisted curiosity for what would actually happen in the end, and whic I am a HUGE fan of Dean Koontz books, and I’ve read dozens of them, usually enjoying every page and finding myself unable to put them down.

Sadly, there are so many things left unaddressed, it significantly degraded my enjoyment. You are commenting using your WordPress. There are a number of people who over the years have dismissed this piece of fiction and horror as too simple of a read, and also those who have been unforgiving due to the release of the movie.

What happens next is not anything I am going into detail about. She crushes it to death just as Conrad comes home.

I devoured it within days, it was such an easy read. Jun 28, Maciek rated it funhoouse was ok Shelves: If there were ever a character targeted for death in a novel, it was her. Below everything there is a seemingly endless sense of desperation, a struggle to sniff out what is right and what is wrong. Or has Susan plunged into the abyss of madness?

Return to Book Page. Have the dead come back to life?


I need to clarify that if you are not a fan of horror to begin with, don’t pick up this book thinking it will be fun. As in the movie he is a monster kid who likes playing practical jokes, but everything else about him is fairly different here.

Actually, you can read it in the GR summary, so I don’t think it counts as spoiler. Try as she might, Amy could never measure up to her mother’s expectations of her, and when she became pregnant, Ellen was certain that the evil she anticipated had shown itself in her daughter.

The Funhouse | Dean Koontz

In funhouses, people are supposed to scream. By then, Ellen has morphed into an obsessive-compulsive fanatic Christian and also an alcoholic as a form of escapism from her nightmarish past and delusion. I think only Koonz Andrews could have pulled of such story with grace; she’s the queen of trashy rean after all. Ellen soon found out that Conrad was no longer a charmer and started to physically abuse her. May always thought of them as her daughters so when she dies suddenly, the sisters are left devastated — especially when they learn that letters intended for them from May with final words of advice and love have gone missing.

Some of the taunts Ellen bellows at her daughter are almost verbatim the same as the ones hurled at poor Carrie, telling her that men want nothing than to stick their filthy cocks in her and that they should pray together in order to keep her from being committed to hell. Even that was a big disappointment, as the book just kind of ends, after much unbelievable hoopla, that is.
