Conrad brought Joey with him, keeping him at the end of a rope leash, and Amy manages to keep the knife hidden. Try as she might, Amy could never measure up to her mother’s expectations of her, and loontz she became pregnant, Ellen was certain that the evil she anticipated had shown itself in her daughter.

The carnival setting is great, I’ve always thought carnivals were a little creepy, so this was the perfect backdrop for a horror story. Stuck at the carnival, as she cannot go back to her parents, Kointz eventually gives birth to a hideously deformed infant.

Liz reveals that she is going to fnuhouse away to Las Vegas and become a high-end prostitute and call girl.

Dean Koontz ‘The Funhouse’ Review

But for some unknown reason, their cooperation remains guarded. Carol and Paul were instantly drawn to her, this girl they named Jane – she was the daughter they never had. Thompson rated it it was ok. And a moment of silenceplease, for the late Mr. More than one author has written under the name ‘Owen West’. Thanks for telling us about the problem. You’ll have to read this little gem of a horror story to find out Would I recommend this?


The Funhouse recently became available in audiobook form You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. As such he has decided he needs to get away from her while he still can. Apparently that was a flop, as well.

As the carnival traveled around the country, Conrad was constantly on the lookout for children who looked like Ellen; he had a horrible plan to deprive her of her children, just as she had deprived him of his. Some people have even believed that Hooper’s film was indeed based on this Koontz novel a myth not helped by the fact that a funhouze in the film’s production caused the book to be released much earlierbecause it goes above and beyond the usual “oh the novelization has some stuff that’s not in the movie” thing.

To overcome kooontz miserable lives led and make things better for themselves.

Amy tricks Conrad into thinking she is approaching Joey to comfort him, before lunging at Conrad with the knife, stabbing him in the throat. Now fast-forward 27 years and meet our focal characters. I wish it started a trend of novelizations that treated the film as the third act it’s the inverse of Roger Fhnhouse using Poe stories as funhous third act of his film adaptations!

Koohtz plans to use Gunther to kill Ellen’s children. I saw the movie a long time ago and I liked the movie just fine. In the movie, she is killed by Gunther after he pays her for sex a rendezvous that is cut short when she rubs his junk a bit and he climaxes before they even really get startedangry that she won’t give him the money back.

I’d read Bradbury’s and King’s versions, both of which were essentially coming-of-age stories, centered around mostly pre-adolsecent boys. One thing that really made The Funhouse work was the characterization.

They have both grown up with a guilt ridden mother. This causes Liz to freak out, running further into the funhouse alone.

Sadly, no such people were present in this flop of a tale. When Tobe Hooper passed away last monththere were the expected tributes to his most famous films like Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Funhouzebut for an underrated filmmaker it was appropriate to give some love to his lesser known filmssuch as his Cannon trilogy Invaders From MarsLifeforceand TCM 2 and his Toolbox Murders remake that was a huge improvement on the original. Psychologically speaking, it was the perfect horror novel for myself at Hatred and revenge have motivated him throughout all these years, so deep and malevolent that it has been his very reason for existence.

Retrieved from ” https: After the death of the child Conrad literally ejects Ellen from his life but not without first cursing her future children.

I don’t remember the sequence of events, The book itself probably be no more than 4 funhoyse, but because the idea of the book and the purpose it served for me I’ll give it 5.

Second reading- as a Alex Hunter hasn’t come to Japan to fall in love.
