Everybody knows that her eyes may never be openedThe elders of Black Spring have virtually uarantined the town by using high tech surveillance to prev. 45 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum how scary could this be I asked myself It can t be as creepy as everyone says I foolishly thought Seriously a story about a three hundred and fifty year old witch who just appears wherever she wants around town and all everyone does is throw a dish towel over her face or otherwise pretends she s not there The whole business sounded comical than frightening to be honestWell fast forward to about a uarter way into the book and I was no longer laughing Things got dark uick and I m prepared to eat my wordsIn spite of its seemingly peaceful and picturesue fa ade Black Spring is probably the last place in the world I d ever want to find myself broken down and stranded But as an outsider at least I could always leave On the other hand the town s residents those who were unfortunate enough to be born there or those who unwittingly decided to move in despite all efforts to deter them they are doomed to live in Black Spring until they die claimed by the curse of the Black Rock WitchBack in the seventeenth century when the town was just a Dutch trapper colony there lived a woman named Katherine van Wyler who was accused of being a witch and was swiftly dealt with in much the way you would expect from your typical puritanical colony back in those days Thing is though Katherine might have been the real deal Now her soiled husk of a body chained with eyes and mouth sewn shut still haunts Black Spring to this day The townsfolk have slapped on their brave faces and come to accept their curse trying to make the best of the situation but deep down they all know that one day those stitches will come off and then everyone will be at the mercy of Katherine s deadly whisperings and Evil Eye Still the first order of business is to contain her and generations going back centuries have been successful in uarantining Black Spring and keeping its witch a strict town secret But as times change so too does the area and its people New technology has certainly made keeping track of Katherine s random appearances easier but internet and social media have also made the world seem like a bigger place and some of the town s younger residents are no longer content with being silenced and trapped in Black SpringWhat amazes me about HEX is how it diabolically draws you in by degrees first presenting you with an all is well scenario to get you all settled in and comfortable so that by the time things go to hell it s too late to turn back not that you d really want to and the only way through is forward into the nightmare The build up is so gradual that little by little a premise which initially sounded so absurd to me ultimately transformed into something frighteningly convincing and very real Even as the situation for the characters in Black Spring gets worse and worse I just couldn t bring myself to tear my eyes away This is my favorite kind of horror novel the kind that sneaks up on you and infuses your mind with its terror without you even realizing itA story about a haunting by a seventeenth century witch is creepy enough if you ask me but the decision to have it all take place in a modern day setting is also a stroke of genius It s so easy to look back on the witch trials of history now and blame the fear and mass hysteria on superstition and lack of understanding after all these days we have science to explain strange but natural phenomena like aurora borealis or fairy rings But the book s themes suggest that perhaps human beings are wired the same way no matter where or when we re from When faced with something supernatural and unexplainable like the Black Rock Witch and a nefarious curse that appears to drive its victims to suicide outside the borders of Black Spring it s hard not to imagine an entire town driven to the lengths we see in this storyPlus just when you think to yourself Oh my things can t possibly get any worse and disturbing can they the author shows us that yes yes indeed they can As the suspense builds with every page Thomas Olde Heuvelt gleefully keeps insisting on poking this already high pressure situation with a stick ratcheting up the horror even Parts of this book actually remind me a lot of Stephen King s Under the Dome where paranoia claustrophobia and the stifling fear of the unknown can drive otherwise sane and normal people to horrible extremes even without the help of a supernatural curse That s the scariest part about HEX the fact that even if you succeed in blocking out the paranormal aspects of the story you can t ignore the dark side of human nature All you can do is stand by and watch as the chilling events unfoldFinally I have to praise the uality of the translation and the way the changes were implemented from the original Dutch version of this book for the US edition Since I have no basis to compare the two versions I can t really comment on the actual changes themselves like the one that switched the location of the setting from a small town in the Netherlands to one nestled in the Hudson Valley region in upstate New York but I can say that they were done really well and the transposition felt practically seamless pardon the pun I was really impressed and if anything this exercise showed me that the things that terrify us and keep us up at night are pretty much universalSo if you re a fan of horror fiction and strong of nerve I would definitely check this one out Deliciously creepy and all consuming HEX was an absolute thrill The chills will stay with you long after the final page is turned
