I'm not too sure about this. The book was good, but at this point we already have Supernatural. Not to mention, the book is always better.

Yes I believe it should be made as a movie. The book is so entertaining that I believe it will captivate more minds as a movie or maybe a T.V. Series because I personally do not want the story to end.

I think it would be a good T.V series, but nothing compares to a good book though!

I think it'll be great to see this on the big screen but if we want more details, why not turn it into a TV series instead. And to be honest, I am kind of scared that they(hollywood) will just ruin every thing.

Yess it should be !

I would love to see a collab between supernatural (the series) and Raven's peak, that would be epic. Sam and Dean joining in the hunt

Although I am not the horror or any type of scary type of person, I would love to see this book made into a movie. I enjoyed it so much, it was hard to put down.

I really enjoyed reading Raven’s Peak. It was full of action all the way through. I definitely think it should be made as a movie with the following books being sequels to the original. Since the book ends with a cliffhanger it would be a great idea to follow up with Raven’s Fall right after. I would love to see what actors would be chosen to play Haatim and Abigail specifically.

Definitely think it has all the elements of a good movie. There's a lot of action packed scenes and not a lot of monologue that often gets cut out in movies so it's unlikely the plotline will be changed significantly.

I can almost see the preface of the book making a stunning trailer!! Flashes of Arthur punishing himself, disoriented views of the corridors, the sterile interrogation room, a young image of Abigail and a hint of battle!

I've put this on my review that while i was reading it, i thought it would be great for a movie! Especially because of the action and fight scenes. I just hope it would meet a great director. Amd also, has anybody considered it sounds like Supernatural, the series?

Frankly, I read the book and thought "I think this author really wants this to be a movie."

As for who would play Abigail, I disagree with Zoe Saldana. Tessa Thompson would give the character more bite and personality, I think.

As it is no. It has a fast pace and interesting plot but lacks some elements that would make it a worthwhile movie to watch. For example, the demons are too chatty and not scary at all. Some scenes were a bit unrealistic but I can let that aside since the whole book is about paranormal stuff. :D

I second that, I am sure that it would make for a good, action packed movie.

Considering other novels of this type that were adapted to the big screen, I suppose it might work. The novel is short, it doesn't have many characters or secondary plots, and has plenty of moments of action. The problem would be the sequels; how many adaptations of this kind were conceived as potential "sagas", so that the first movie woudn't be anywhere near to collect enough money to justify future deliveries?

I think this book would make a good movie if handled well. It will take some big money to make it worth while. There is public imterest ie ‚ÄúSupernatural‚ÄĚ following and seasons it had run. I would hope it would not become a sacriligious event or cheap B movie.

I think that it definitely has the potential to be a movie and it's one I would love to see
