Reviewed in the United States on January 28, 2017
I loved this novel. The main character was well developed and the narrative kept my attention. As a long-time fan of quality horror--The Exorcist, Hell Raiser, Rosemary's Baby, Hill House, Burnt Offerings, The Uninvited, the original Texas Chainsaw, and the original Night of the Living Dead--I was captivated by Tremblay's witty choices and his subtle critique of the honor genre. My favorite aspect is the realistic way the novel deals with the society's obsessions with reality TV and "possessed" teenage girls in horror movies. The psychological complexity was refreshing--is this possession or it is mental illness?
