1.0 out of 5 stars I mean if you have literally nothing else to do...
Reviewed in the United States on April 23, 2021
I’m bored. This book speaks very little about Stephen King and his book characters. There’s just a bunch of random information (that’s basically common knowledge) filling up the chapters. After each chapter I’m hoping the next will be better. I get to Chapter Ten, and the third line in the chapter is talking about iconic boogeymen such as... “Michael Myers in his hockey mask”

Umm... One of the authors is a co-host of a horror podcast, and the other is supposedly a horror film lover, but they don’t know that Jason Voorhies wears the hockey mask... not Michael Myers. That’s horror 101. Who doesn’t know that?
Not impressed with this book.
