Rezension zu "Video Night: A Novel of Alien Horror" von Adam Cesare

Creepy creature-feature with a cool 80's feeling
misspidervor 7 Monaten

This was a fantastic book and I had so much fun reading it! Video Night is made with just the best of ingredients you could wish for: creepy creatures and gore combined with a coming-of-age vibe, all wrapped up in a cool 80's feeling.

At times it made me sigh sentimentally, e.g. reminiscing about the (at that time) absolutely stunning start of the video era with my first VHS system. Other times, I wanted to pump my fist in the air with a big "YES" when the good guys hit another score over the evil creatures, especially Darl taking action at the end.

I admired Darl's unnerving tenacity and Billy's transformation from self-conscious to self-confident. I loved Rachel's rationality and how she handled the situation. I loved there not being any stupid screaming blonde (honestly, I was glad Darcy did not stay around to get on my nerves until the very end).

While I am interested to know more about the creatures' origin, I prefer the lack of this information over any possibly ridiculous or lame scenario, as often the case with other stories.

This is one of those books where I have the movie video playing right along in my head while reading. Now I'd really like to see it on the big screen sometime, especially the scene where Rhonda reveals her new self.

Rezension zu "The Blackest Eyes: 2 Short Horror Stories" von Adam Cesare

In for a treat
misspidervor 2 Jahren

This two-story collection came as a freebie, so it was the perfect occasion to get a taste of the author's acclaimed work. The summary, especially the keywords shark and slasher (which drew me in like gigantic neon signs) suggest horror with a big H and an even higher blood count. But this is only half the truth, because what you also get is some great character-driven plot, which makes it even better.

It is not usual to have the best of both worlds combined in such a perfect mix, but Mr. Cesare definitely knows how to do the job. While I did enjoy the more graphic scenes, what I really loved were the characters. They felt believably real, even likable, despite their unbelievable and not so likable actions. It's a clever plan to bait potential readers with some free stories, and if the bait is as yummy as these two were, I will eagerly grab the line myself to help reel me in. Highly recommended!
