Book Review: The Uninvited: The True Story of the Union Screaming House by Steven A. LaChance




Book
: The Uninvited: The True Story of the Union Screaming House by Steven A. LaChance

About: Author and his kids move into house in Union, Missouri where the lights turn on by themselves, they see and hear the groans and screaming of demons and sleep ruining nightmares are a nightly fixture. Guy moves out shortly after, but then he learns another tenant has moved in with similar results, so he tries to save her from the house with the help of psychics, priests and paranormal researchers.

Pros: A bit scary, short chapters. You'll probably enjoy this if you liked Amityville Horror.

Cons: True story? I believe not, as this would probably not be the only tale about it and extraordinary claims need extraordinary evidence.
Not scary enough for my tastes. Writing is simplistic. Seems like an unoriginal Amityville Horror /Poltergeist knock-off. He does some research on the house's background and doesn't cite his sources. Ending is unsatisfying.

Grade: C-
