Five movies like Chosen that will scare you senseless


Next week sees the official release of R.S. Broadhead's new novel, Chosen. Black eyes. No emotion. No sympathy. Only emptiness. Piper McAdams’s life was normal. Career? Check. Boyfriend? Check. Friends? Check. One unsettling run-in with a homeless man turns everything from normal to terrifying. She begins seeing…things. Things she can’t seem to explain or make any sense. As if things aren’t already getting out of hand, Piper receives news that the only family member she has is dead. She thinks maybe a trip across the country to her hometown will get her away from all the strange events happening. After a late night accident, Piper isn’t in her hometown burying her loved one. She’s in a town called Hell. All she wants to do is leave, but the people seem to be holding her there for some reason. A reason she feels threatens her life. Around every corner, things become darker and scarier. Can she escape what is coming for her?

To celebrate the release of this creepy new novel, author R.S. Broadhead shares five movies in the same vein as Chosen.

The Wicker Man

Children of the Corn

The House of the Devil

Rosemary’s Baby

The Conspiracy
