The 1970s might be my favorite decade of horror. Horror films in the 1970s were all about using your imagination against you. I remember how terrified I was when I first saw The Exorcist  and all the games my mind played on me after. As a teen, I devoured the original novels that these movies were based on and was scared all over again! Every now and then I like to pick up a good old horror and enjoy the terror.
Here are some of my favorite horror novels with a 1970s film release for your reading and viewing pleasure!
