Coraline, by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman describes "Coraline" as a "fairy tale in the same way that Hansel and Gretel is a fairy tale". It's twice as terrifying too; in H&G all the witch wanted to do was eat the kids, not kill them and drain their souls into wispy husks. I've read quite a few anthologies of horror and "Coraline" beats them all hollow.

I haven't read the book, but the movie was creepy as fuck.

I was just about to post to that effect. Excellently executed and disturbing as hell.

It's a good book/movie and really scary, but also helped me in a weird way. You know me and my parent issues.
