The legends have persisted for decades of a lost horror film starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi that was never released. Rumor has it that, for reasons long forgotten, powerful forces suppressed the film and burned all known prints. Nobody now living has seen the finished film. But that might no longer be true ... Film researcher Sandy Allan is invited to a screening of a newly-discovered sole-surviving print, but then the film disappears and the real horror begins. Sandy's search for the film leads her to Redfield, a rural community known its rich soil, fertilized by blood from an ancient massacre. But Redfield guards its secrets closely, with good reason. During every step of her search, Sandy is watched, shadowed by strange figures. Is it paranoia, or is someone, or something, determined to keep the lost film and the secrets it reveals buried forever?--Amazon

"Isolated on the moors of northern England, the town of Moonwell has remained faithful to their Druid traditions and kept their old rituals alive. Right-wing evangelist Godwin Mann isn't about to let that continue, and his intolerant brand of fundamentalism has struck a chord with the residents. But Mann goes too far when he descends into the pit where the ancient being who's been worshipped by the Druids for centuries is said to dwell ... What emerges is no longer Mann, but a demon in Mann's shape, and only the town's outcasts can see that something is horribly wrong. Slowly, as the evil spreads, Moonwell becomes cut off from the rest of the world. Telephone lines become disconnected. Roads no longer lead out of town. And the monster's power only grows ... and grows."--Page 4 of cover

Ghosts know by Ramsey Campbell( Book )

"Ghosts Know is a fascinating exploration of the twists and turns of reality-media personalities, the line between the dead and the living ... and how the truth can be twisted to serve all manner of reality. Graham Wilde is a contentious, bombastic host of the talk radio program Wilde Card. His job, as he sees it, is to stir the pot, and he is quite good at it, provoking many a heated call with his eccentric and often irrational audience. He invites Frank Jasper, a purported psychic, to come on the program. He firmly believes that the man is a charlatan, albeit a talented one. When Jasper appears on his show, Wilde draws upon personal knowledge about the man to embarrass him on air, using patter similar to that which Jasper utilizes in his act. Wilde's attack on Jasper earns him the enmity of his guest and some of the members of his audience. He next encounters Jasper when the psychic is hired by the family of a missing adolescent girl to help them find her. Wilde is stunned and then horrified when Jasper seems to suggest that he might be behind the girl's disappearance. Thus begins a nightmarish journey as circumstantial evidence against Wilde begins to mount, alienating his listeners, the radio station, and eventually, his lover. As Wilde descends into a pit of despair, reality and fantasy begin to blur in a kaleidoscope of terror ..."--

"The other children flee, as the door slams shut behind them. Ten-year-old Rose is left alone in the deserted attic room. Behind her a shape--swollen, quivering, diseased--draws near. Her skin prickles in fear as the soft, thick substance penetrates her flesh. Rose is overwhelmingly, unspeakably, invaded. Twenty years pass. Rose is now a successful film critic, happily married to her collaborator, Bill Tierney. She has completely forgotten the worst trauma of her childhood. Only an occasional migraine headache, and an indefinable feeling of being somehow incomplete, ripple the peaceful calm of her existence. But on a business trip to New York, Rose is assaulted by a mugger. Her subconscious is suddenly jolted into activity. The secret horror begins to unfold. In New York, Munich, her native Liverpool, even in the open sky around a speeding jetliner, Rose gradually learns the strange, frightening exhilaration of out-of-body travel. She sees into the future more than once, manipulating reality and narrowly rescuing herself and Bill from certain catastrophe. Rose welcomes her new powers with a mixture of joy and fear. Her writing takes on an added vitality; she feels herself growing more confident, even arrogant. But her marriage begins to crack under the strain as she falls prey to an unholy obsession. Relentlessly, the horrors multiply, A butcher shop disappears, then reappears before her eyes. A phantom baby wails in the fireplace. In her paranormal travels through the astral plane, she is drawn ever deeper into a gray terrifying world, as amorphous as a nightmare, yet as real as our own. Worst of all, she is pursued and tormented by grotesque, indescribable beings--some human, some demon. Rose strives desperately to understand the source of her monstrous gifts, knowing it may already be too late. In one moment of shattering exorcism, the parasite within her breaks free--and Rose finds herself in stark confrontation with a destructive force no human should be made to face."--Dust jacket
