Hmmm,this Strangeland sounds pretty weird,I'll have to see if I can find it at the video store.
As far as horror writers go I have to say Koontz is the best I've ever read.
Although "IT" was a really good book with lots of character development I find a lot of his stories filled up with a lot of meaningless morbidity.
Has anyone read "The BAD PLACE" by Koontz...that is my all time favorite horror story.
Koontz is plenty morbid himself but he doesn't wallow in it like King does.
"The Bad Place" has got everything in it,humor,horror,romance,paranormal and perversion! A must read.
