If you are a classic horror film or horror novel lover you will devour A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS like The Thing does foreign DNA, taking over your consious (& subconsious) thought.
Deciding to whatc on the surface looks like a reinterpretation of The Exorcist in the age of Paraanormal Activity & reality tv, is a bold move.
Bolder still to entwine multiple unreliabe narrators and the traditional themes of female pubescence & burgeoning sexuality ; with modern dayc politics and religious posturing.
With countless hat tips to some of the great horror writersxand films, , Tremblay crafts a genuinely unnerving tale of family dysfunction, creeping madness & manipulation.
Make sure you read the author notes at the back! I find it interesting that one of the lead characters shares a name with one of the important characters in his favourite horror films: Session 9. (and maybe a trait?) I don't think The Thing was the only film on his mind.
