Wall Street Journal: Hollywood Moves Back to Demonic Possession Stories

My novel and mention of its movie deal plays a prominent role in a large article by Michael Calia. Very cool!

When Mr. Tremblay wrote “A Head Full of Ghosts,” he grappled with the legacy of Mr. Blatty’s creation, but updated it for the age of Google, Wikipedia and reality television. Sales of the book increased after author Stephen King tweeted: “Scared the living hell out of me, and I’m pretty hard to scare.” In an interview, Mr. King said its first-person, reality-TV style made it more intimate and heightened the sense of dread. Published in June, the novel is in its second printing; Focus Features beat out two other production companies for the movie rights.
