It is officially October and that means it is time for Halloween and time for horror. It was this line of thinking that led me upon a quest to find a good, blood-filled, murderous horror novel and I happened to stumble upon All Night Terror.
A deranged late night public access employee gets fired and takes over the station, forcing viewers to watch some of the most twisted, sickening, and wonderful tales of fright, gore, and horror. What the reader gets are short stories with original concepts that are quick and action packed, never leaving a dull moment.
Cesare and Serafini do a fantastic job at making the reader know this book is designed for one purpose: to scare the reader with one solid punch after another. My personal favorite was "Incident at Night" which chronicles the story of a girl on the run from a murderous mysterious figure. She stumbles upon a convenience store employee who reluctantly agrees to help. Everything goes along swimmingly when the author pulls out a twist that changes everything.
And that's just what this collection of stories are, tight-knit scary stories that are engaging yet filled with twists. So if you're looking for a good scare that doesn't take weeks to read, look no further. This is your book.
I love to read and to discuss books. My preferred genre is sci-fi but I like to read mostly anything.
