A good horror novel can often be scarier than a movie, as your brain fills in details all on its own, better than any special effects house could produce. The best horror audiobooks make it even easier, the narrator doing the heavy lifting of telling the story and leaving your brain free to scare itself while you commute, are at work, or just doing tasks around the house.
A few of the best horror books have been made into films, such as Pet Semetary, Horns, and Bird Box. Many great horror audiobooks are part of scary book series, such as The Southern Reach Trilogy and Hannibal. There are also horror audiobooks from favorite horror authors such as Stephen King, Dean Koonz, and Michael Crichton. There are even versions of horror books only available on Audible, such as Dracula as performed by an all-star cast including Alan Cumming and Tim Curry.
