Danielewski's House of Leaves, John Ajvide Lindqvist's Let the Right One In, and Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House. The lives of the Barretts, a normal suburban New England family, are torn apart when fourteen-year-old Marjorie begins to display signs of acute schizophrenia. To her parents' despair, the doctors are unable to stop Marjorie's descent into madness. As their stable home devolves into a house of horrors, they reluctantly turn to a local Catholic priest for help. Father Wanderly suggests an exorcism; he believes the vulnerable teenager is the victim of demonic possession. He also contacts a production company that is eager to document the Barretts' plight. With John, Marjorie's father, out of work for more than a year and the medical bills looming, the family agrees to be filmed, and soon find themselves the unwitting stars of The Possession, a hit reality television show. When events in the Barrett household explode in tragedy, the show and the shocking incidents it captures become the stuff of urban legend. Fifteen years later, a bestselling writer interviews Marjorie's younger sister, Merry. As she recalls those long ago events that took place when she was just eight years old, long-buried secrets and painful memories that clash with what was broadcast on television begin to surface-and a mind-bending tale of psychological horror is unleashed, raising vexing questions about memory and reality, science and religion, and the very nature of evil., A head full of ghosts :a novel, A head full of ghosts :a novel /Paul Tremblay., Digital content provided by hoopla., Eschatology, FIC HORROR TREMBLAY, FICTION / Horror., FICTION / Literary., FICTION / Psychological., Fear, First edition., Ghost stories., Horror fiction., Horror tales., MWT11587783, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Osmanski, Joy,1975-, PS3620.R445H43 2015, Paranoia, Performed by Joy Osmanski., Schizophrenia, TOHengTOHNOGOCLCOUPZOI6OCLCOZHBYDXCP, Tremblay, Paul,author., Unabridged., [New York, NY] :William Morrow, an Inprint of HarperCollinsPublishers,[2015], [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers,2015., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/hpc_9780062411525_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, texttxt, unmediatedn, volumenc
