    1. A child is terribly frightened of the cellar ever since he was a baby. This fear only increases as the boy grows older, but is perceived as folly by the parents, and specially a lack of manhood from the point of view of the father. Not only facing terrors of the unknown, the small child of six has also to be accountable for being perfectly reasonable and fully developed such as an adult – that alone is cruel and torturous. Add to that the fact that the house might, in fact, have something lurk [...]


    2. I gave this short book 5 stars, because I first read it as a child and it made a big impression on me as well as scaring me to bits, I am now 57 but the story has stayed with me and probably led to foray into other horror type books. I reread it the other day for the second time in my life and didn't find it scary at all, but as a child and scared of the dark it fed those horrors of a thing waiting to get me.


    3. I really enjoyed this suspenseful/horror story. It was really interesting to see the symbolism and foreshadowing in this story, and it provided an interesting supernatural twist that leaves the reader wondering what really did happen, other than the explicitly stated disaster, but more importantly, how it happened.


    4. This is the short story that got me hooked on horror fiction! It was in a book of collected "scary stories" for kids, that I found at our local library back in the mid-1960s. Thanks to the internet, I was able to find and re-read this childhood favorite, and it's STILL scary (and I'm 54 now!)
