What a nice thought. I would run to the theatres to watch a movie based on Raven's Peak. The story is superb. Hope some one turns it into a movie too.

Yes it would be interesting if these series would be converted into movie. It would be faster and easier to understand.

I do agree that the movie might make the story easier to understand for some. There are some people who are visual learners and can comprehend something more if they can actually see it. So a movie would definitely help in that regard.

I could see it is a mini series or a kind of 4 part tv special as well as film too.

Heya! This would be great! This would be in the genre of the ghost rider from hell with Nicholas Cage. And I think this will gross a lot of moolah!

You're right. It would make a good movie series. Now I definitely want to see it on Netflix sometime soon.

For me, I think it is the same as any other book being made into a movie: it depends on how well done the film is along with how closely it resembles the original material. There's no point to me getting excited about an adaptation if it is shoddily made or written.

That is true. I have been excited about an adaptation just to feel deeply disappointed.

Yes, this should be made into a movie. It has action and the supernatural. Just find the right actors/actresses and this should be a big hit.

Completely agree! This would make a great movie. The storyline is action-packed. Relatable characters, outside of the standard role. Has fighting, love, a strong father-daughter relationship, plus characters who challenge the norm. Along with demons... Perfect for Hollywood! I would watch it.

OoOooOo! I think the actress From Game of Thrones would make an AWESOME Abigail!! What a great choice!
And I agree, after reading Raven's Peak, I think it would make such a great suspense thriller. Can you imagine seeing the town at the end of the story and all those people o a big screen?! Yeahhhh!!

I think Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) would be perfect for the role of Abigail.
