There is so much good about this book. First of all if you have seen Cigarette Burns on Masters of Horror it is a very similar plot. Evil contained in an old movie.

This book is written so well. I am an instant Phoef Sutton fan. First the way he starts the book is great, there is a couple going to see a classic movie... After that scene he gives a quick glimpse into what will happen in the future to the man. It is only one sentence and a very small thing but as soon as I read it I knew the writing style of this Dead Man installment was going to be great. This one is so much better than 11. No needless story, no excess information, just a tight and well written horror story.

There is also something about the way that Sutton writes Matt's character. He seems to have more depth in this book than most in the series. I can't put my finger on it but it would be ok if Sutton wrote the rest of these books.

Finally, the best part of the book was the ending. Most of the endings in the Dead Man series are kind of flat. This was was the best so far by a lot! I am still thinking about how good it is... You must read this book.

You never know what to expect with the series but this one has made me happy that I have read them all. Wow!

What a fun read! This series is perfect summer reading, and this is one of the better installments. The usual elements are in place, the requisite ax is swinging away, and Matt is on the tail of Mr. Dark. The premise is a good one, and the characters better drawn than some in the series. I like the way the author gives a few more hints as to the link between Matt and Mr. Dark, keeping us guessing and ready for the next installment! Perhaps some would say this is the newer generation of 'pulp' and the male equivalent of the bodice-ripper. Not classic literature, which it's never meant to be, but good reading nonetheless.

I'm not a pulp fiction fan. So when a friend raved about this book, the snob in me thought zombies? Pulp novel? $2.99? How good can this book possibly be? Let me tell you - real good! I picked it up and couldn't put it down. When I tried, I'd pick it up again a half hour later to read another chapter or five. The characters are so original, so quirky. They reminded me of Quentin by way of David Lynch. I finished it (in two sittings) and thought, how did he do it? How did he reel me in like that?

Simply, Phoef's prose kept me coming back for more. His imagery was HD vivid. I didn't read the novel; I saw it. I was in decaying Los Angeles movie houses, I was standing beside a crazed projectionist as he butchers his victim, I sat helpless on a plane when a flight attendant goes medieval, I visited a Hollywood cemetery with hundreds of others waiting for the midnight re-release of a cult classic. It's the perfect book for Kindle. A virtual experience read on a virtual book.

This novel has it all: bloody mayhem, sex, humor and nostalgia of 1970's Hollywood. The tension is real, the stakes high, and the suspense unpredictable. How can you not have fun following Matt Cahill on his one-man warfare against Mr. Dark and the hundreds of zombies standing in his way.

So, if you want to feel like you're reading a novel while riding a roller coaster, download this novel.

A solid entry as Matt and his axe end up chasing down a Grindhouse styled "lost film" (a play on an alternate title to a cool Jorge Grau zombie film)...and the damn thing summons violence, mayhem and Mr. Dark.

Sutton's prose is fast and he fleshes out some good characters with minimum exposition while having fun using what would appear to be a zombie Quentin Tarantino and even includes a fun gender swap tagline for "the tall man" with "GIRL!"

For fans of trashy cinema this entry will be especially fun and it stands as a solid entry into the series.

This book, Midnight Special (#12) has redeemed this series!
What an Awesome Adventure about Matt & Mr. Dark Phoef Sutton has written!
So much detail & imagination in one volume - This is the way this series SHOULD be written!
Also includes a great cast of characters & setting...
Mr. Sutton can write ALL the volumes from now on as far as I'm concerned!
I sure Hope the Next (#13) can live up to this One!
