The horror story that’s become one of Hollywood’s most enduring ghost stories is a long one: The ghostwriter of one of the biggest horror films ever, Scream, wrote a book that has been adapted for television.
The book, The Ghostwriter’s Book, details how a ghostwriter named Bob Carpenter used his own life to craft the story of a man who was killed by the killer of his own family, then lived out his final days in a house with his wife, daughter and son.
In it, he writes that Carpenter would sleep in his bed and would wake up and scream.
And he was not alone.
Carpenter’s wife, Carol, and daughter, Nancy, were killed in a car crash, and Carpenter’s son was found in the rubble.
It was, Carpenter says in the video above, “a tragedy for the family, a tragedy for me and my wife, a tragic loss for me, and for me a tragedy of our own.”
And Carpenter is not alone in that view.
His book has sold over 5 million copies.
It’s been adapted into several TV shows, including The Twilight Zone, which also stars David Duchovny.
In the film version, there is no ghost writer, but the characters are still haunted by their past lives.
There’s a new movie out this summer, starring James Franco and Scarlett Johansson.
And it’s available on Netflix.
In addition to The Ghostwriters Book, the filmmaker has created a social housing advertisement for the home and the Ghostwriters’ Museum.
He even wrote a song called Ghost Stories.
But in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Carpenter said the film’s ghostwriters are being overlooked because he’s writing the book.
“I’ve gotten so many letters from ghostwriters saying, ‘I’m going to write a ghoststory about this story, but it’s not really a ghost,’ and they’re not telling the truth,” he told the magazine.
“We need a movie that will give them a reason to believe in the ghostwriter.
They need that.”
Carpenter said he’s never been able to convince anyone that a book would work for television or film, but that if he did, he would make it a movie.
He hopes to get the book into production soon.
