I need some truly terrifying horror to read. I want nightmares. I want to be afraid to read.

Because unlike Kant you have no actual morals of your own and you aren't convicted enough to adopt an entirely foreign set of morals.

I think there's a Donald Trump book thread.

"IT" scared the shit out of me.

I read it at night, right next to this window. I couldn't afford a curtain, so I was constantly watching the window for monsters and shit to appear.

Then the sink shit scared me too. I seriously went to bathroom at night with a knife, in case the sink tried anything.

Depends on what you deem terrifying.

I found To The Light House to be very unsettling because of the utter despair of existentialism. When Mr. Ramsay describes the complete futility of living a mark in history it really got to me.

Otherwise I would recommend something like "I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream". Really good short story with a strange premise but interesting execution imo.

Well the movie Threads scared me more than any real horror movie so I'd suggest a book on detailing the effects of nuclear war.

Clive barker's Books of Blood are great.

all the responses have sucked so far. I have no mouth and I must scream is really overrated, if you ask me. Not scary, more like, hmm, that would suck.

Different things are scary for different people. Psychological horror? House of Leaves or The White People.

Gothic horror? Poe is a meme, but his short stories are actually pretty scary.

I'm way into extreme horror. Read jf Gonzales Survivor. Or Brian keenes Urban Gothic

Are the Agota Kristof books actually scarry? I saw the Notebook movie and am interested in the other books, but they did not seem to be on the scarry side. More like depressing.

The truth is that horror doesn't work in written form. Seek /tv/ instead.

Existentialism is joyful, modern Existentialism isn't Existentialism because it has no intent of curing Angst.

just about any of his books, really. but some of the stories in this one gave me the willies

Horror works great in writing. Better than most film, because film can rely on jump scares and other shitty gimmicks to pretend to be scary, while written horror has to actually be unsettling.

Descartes is slammed onto the bed by Hume "Think this aguuuuur" Hume unzips his cock and slaps Descartes in the face with it who cries and moans at the same time cuz Descartes is stupid and a faggot. Spinoza runs in "stop dukinmy husband hHume" "Hume this" time slaps Spinoza in the face with his cook, causing Spinoza to shit his pants. Locke begins gobbling down Hume's shit"what the fug is oh shit" Kant starts to jerk off hHume and Spinoza simultaneously as Hegel enters and begins to vomit all over Kants asshole Schopenhauer who had been raping Nietzsche in the corner this whole time looks over and says "hell yeah America" achopehrn cums deep inside Nietzsche s boypussy while Heidegger farts and zizek comes in and tells them how their gay
