"Exploring the darker side of life can have very grave consequences."
— Tagline, from the front cover

Real Horror is the 71st book in the The Hardy Boys Casefiles series.

Plot summary

Mark Stevens is America's king of horror writers, but now someone is trying to knock him off the throne. He's invited two of his biggest fans, Frank and Joe Hardy, into his home -- Nightmare House -- to investigate a bizarre series of threats against his life. The strangest twist of all is that in finishing his new book, Stevens may have written his own obituary!

The writer faces his worst nightmare -- the terrors of his imagination have come to life. Evil poltergeists, deadly poisons, and razor-sharp guillotines have risen from the novel's pages to torment Stevens in his own home. If Frank and Joe don't find a way to demolish the plot and defuse the danger, the last chapter could be murder!
