The characters are rich: both endearing and frustrating at the same time. I love that everyone is so real, coping in very different and very legitimate ways with some very unreal situations. Particularly the main character and his family. I thought of Eugenides's "The Virgin Suicides" several times as I read: maybe it was the way it taps into the mind of a teenage boy without being overbearing about it, or maybe the cursed small town.
The construct of mysteriously disappearing children -- including the main character's twin brother -- makes for eerie and chilling undertones that are sometimes deliciously subtle. It reminded me of some of the better moments of Welcome To Nightvale episodes.
It's a great story: unsettling and weirdly charming, and a super fast read.
As more and more teens go missing in Silver Creek, other strange things happen as well. Jason is no longer dealing with botched lines and fake blood. Reality is much scarier and he’ll have to be smart to find his brother and the other missing teens and not become a fatality himself.
Whether reality or fantasy, nothing can be more terrifying than missing kids. How people treat Jason after his brother goes missing is so genuine. Some people don’t mention it at all, while others over compensate and treat him like he’ll break. It’s hard to know what to say or do. And his parents aren’t doing much better.
I’m struggling to tell you about this book without spoiling it. So many creepy and awesome things going on. I want to tell you all about them. Since I can’t, I’ll tell you what the story is like.
It’s like a really good B-Movie. You know, the ones you love but don’t want to admit it. Why do they make so many of these movies? Because they scare the crap out of you, give you outrageous scenes to tear apart with your friends, and the really good ones take you back to when the atmosphere scared you as much as the monster or whatever did.
Horror Business has kids making horror movies. What a great set up. The author has freedom to take the story wherever and uses flashes of past and present to keep the suspense rolling. Anything can happen, and some strange and creepy stuff does. It sneaks up on you, jumps out at you, goes quiet, and then, cue the music, the ending is unleashed.
Horror Business is a horror/slasher/ zombie story, yeah there’s this zombie dog thing, he’s my favorite.
I also enjoyed the movie mentions, seen a lot of them, and discovered some new ones.
The book read super fast and made this horror fan very happy.
I received this book for my honest review.
