Doesn’t life seem nasty, brutish and short?
This horror novella and accompanying screenplay tells the story of Darran Jersey, a troubled teenager who moves into a house that’s inhabited by the malevolent spirit of his predecessor.
As time goes by and the family begins to settle, Darran begins to take on more and more of the qualities of James, the dead teenager who committed a bloody suicide.
As tragedy after tragedy threatens to destroy the family, Darran’s mother Alice decides to leave the house behind and start afresh, but is it too late?

|Genre(s):||Fiction > Horror > Occult|
Darran breathed a sigh of relief an turned around. As he did so, the lights flicked on by themselves and his nightmare was back, only this time he was living through it. The walls and carpet were daubed with blood. Darran did not know it, but he was looking at the room as it was left by its previous inhabitant. It wasn’t a pretty sight.
This book introduces you to the Jersey family – especially teenage son Darran – and their house.
With Come On Up to the House, Dane Cobain has created a horror story about a house, the evil spirit within, and a family. It is a fight between evil and not-so-evil; the horror is not limited to the evil spirit. Dane Cobain paints a clear picture of Darran while the gory story evolves. The other characters are of sufficient depth, supporting the novella-length story appropriately. The story has a good flow.
This is a book for you if you like the macabre, novella-length horror stories with a psychological touch, and screenplays.
