Item description for House (Movie Edition) by Frank Peretti & Ted Dekker...
Overview A mind-bending supernatural thriller from the creators of This Present Darkness and Showdown.
Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker - two of the most acclaimed writers of supernatural thrillers - have joined forces for the first time to craft a story unlike any you've ever read. Enter House - where you'll find yourself thrown into a killer's deadly game in which the only way to win is to lose...and the only way out is in.
The stakes of the game become clear when a tin can is tossed into the house with rules scrawled on it. Rules that only a madman - or worse - could have written. Rules that make no sense yet must be followed.
One game. Seven players. Three rules. Game ends at dawn.

find the Light May 24, 2010
I read "House" for two reasons: one; because it's a Ted Dekker book; two: I kind of want to see the movie. And let me tell you I am not a fan of anything even slightly related to horror. The preview for the movie almost makes me pee my pants! How could I handle a book?! Yes I can handle suspense, but not horror. I could not set this book down. It really reaches into the heart and directly reflects the battle between evil and good that happens daily in each human heart. I have never seen nor read anything that so vividly reflects what sin does to the human heart and soul. I am so glad that I have found the Light and that the Light has penetrated the darkness that was once in me. If you ever want to "dive deep" into the waters of the human soul, anything Dekker is a good read-especially House. The end will leave you longing for change, maybe even teary. I sincerely hope that each and every one of you find the Light that can change the darkness and allow you to find your way out of this House. Another "Dekketti" masterpiece

supense thriller Feb 26, 2010
I like Frank Peretti and enjoyed this book, it is supenseful & hard to put down.
A great read that was worth it Feb 26, 2010
This combined effort of Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker is a brilliant mystery thriller that goes deeper into the human psyche than your average work of fiction. Through an unfortunate turn of events, Jack and Stephanie find themselves with 5 strangers in the Wayside Inn. Barsidious White, a crazed serial killer, attacks the Inn. There are three rules to his game: "1, God came to my house and I killed him. 2, I will kill anyone who comes to my house like I killed God. 3, Give me one dead body and I might let rule #2 slide. You have until dawn." The players of the game are tested physically and mentally to the full extent of their humanity as their survival is frantically strived for. The book gives insight into true human motive and emotion, and explores religious concepts in a radical yet inspiring and insightful way that leaves the reader stunned and amazed. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys books with religious overtones, but not to the point where it's overwhelmingly Christian. Even if Christianity isn't your thing, it is an equally amazing mystery thriller that keeps the reader on edge.
very dark but thrillling Dec 18, 2009
I am a huge Peretti fan, but was a little hesitant to read HOUSE after some of the reviews. It is definitely his darkest book (although he didn't write it alone.) It was also one of my favorites (and I don't like dark books, usually!)
As a huge Peretti fan, I could tell what was written by him and what was written by Dekker. Overall they did a masterful job of putting a seamless story together that had my eyes glued to the pages and sitting on the edge of my seat. I couldn't put it down!!! It was a little predictable though, probably because I've read all of Peretti's novels.
I was a little frustrated at the ending, and you may be, too. I also was frustrated that I had written a story similar to this BEFORE I ever read this book! ;) I guess it's not that original of an idea.
If you are looking for a suspenseful supernatural thriller - this is it!
