This book is a must-read for any horror movie fan who appreciates the Golden Age. Mr. Tatum displays both mastery in writing and knowledge of film in this gripping novel. An enjoyable read that warrants a re-read.
I am a HUGE fan of scary books and movies, (not the gore junk that passes today)I liked the beginning of the book but found areas that lagged or I didn't find that "chilling". It could possibly be a good movie. The main idea is good I just felt sometimes that things were repetitive. I wish someone would write a good scary Goth book with out the derogatory references to sex or women as prostitutes. I think Bradford Tatum has real talent but like his movies he wrote I'd like to see him break away from using "sex"to keep people interested and use his talent to create "tension" without it. Personally I think his best acting performance was in the movie "Powder". He really made his character "the Bully John Box" real. The facial expression and changes were marvelous! I am trying to get a hold of his other 2 books. He's an interesting person.
