The Magic Cottage is another classic from the Master of Horror James Herbert.

A cottage was found in the heart of the forest. It was charming, maybe a little run-down, but so peaceful--a magical haven for creativity and love. But the cottage had an alternative side--the bad magic. What happened there was horrendous beyond belief.

In the media

Beautifully orchestrated crescendo of suspense... Herbert had brought the shivers back to the genre.
