Recs, clockwise from top:

Night Film by Marisha Pessl

The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon

Don’t Breathe a Word by Jennifer McMahon

Red Moon by Benjamin Percy

The Fever by Megan Abbot

The Three by Sarah Lotz

Conversion by Katherine Howe

Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Of these, I honestly couldn’t tell you which one is the creepiest or most frightening. Parents might argue over Jennifer McMahon’s titles, The Fever, The Three, or Conversion. Film buffs might find some interesting parallels to Kubrick and urban legends in Night Film.  Genre purists might find Malerman’s debut to be the most disturbing on a psychological and even visceral level. Me? I’d probably go with The Winter People right now.
