Like all the other Screams, the 2022 version definitely lives up to the hype with tons of humor
and scary moments to keep the viewer on the edge of their seat. Not to mention, Actors: Neve
Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette returning to their iconic roles in Scream to deliver
another great sequel. That being said, nothing beats the 1996 Scream nor its originality, as I
wouldn’t say Scream 5 was necessarily needed but cool nonetheless.

Rating: 4

My rating for this book is a 4 because the book is pretty good but I don't really like the "horror" part of it.

Summary:

This is about a girl named Barbra Gordan. She was shot and is paralyzed from her hips down. She is admitted into a rehab facility which is pretty suspicious. She can hear voices in the walls and once patients start going missing she starts investigating.

Lock Every Door is an exceptionally written horror/thriller novel. Riley Sager is very well known for writing thriller books, and this might just be one of the best written books by Riley. The storyline of the book is very interesting since it gives you insight on multiple characters’ perspectives. You not only get to feel what all the characters are feeling, but you also get an insight into their lives and how each character is so vastly different than the other.

Stanislas Cordova is a reclusive film director, renowned for his spine-chilling horror movies, while his wives have all either died or relegated themselves to the fringes of society — and sanity. So when 24-year-old Ashley Cordova is found dead in a Manhattan warehouse, investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects that there is more to her death than just suicide. But unmasking the family’s secrets will undoubtedly bring the family’s wrath upon him — and he must decide how much he is willing to pay for the truth.
