09 Nov 2020 The Bedeviled, by Thomas Cullinan
First book recorded in my new Studiobricks booth, and it makes me positively gleeful! The Bedeviled, Thomas Cullinan’s rare 1978 occult chiller from Valancourt Books. Isolated farmhouse, ghost of a Civil War general, Satanists. All your spooky heart could want.
From the publisher: “Maggie Caine and her family leave New York to visit the Caine family home, and old farmhouse in Ohio, which her husband has just inherited from a distant aunt. The house, ten miles away from the nearest neighbor, was once owned by a Civil War general reputed to have been a Satanist. But when strange and terrible things begin to happen it soon becomes clear that Satanic worship is still alive and well in the community, and so might be the General, who Maggie suspects is taking possession of her teenage son . . .
A rediscovered modern horror classic by Thomas Cullinan, author of the twice-filmed Civil War novel The Beguiled, The Bedeviled (1978) is an occult chiller whose suspenseful plot and surprising twists will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the shocking finale.”
