Slumber Party by Christopher Pike (Book Review)

It was the perfect weekend...for murder.

Lara thought the ski trip should be a blast. The old gang was getting together again for the first time in years. What could be better than six single girls out for sun and ski and apres ski -- plus a huge house and a warm fire? Even with the memory of what had happened the last time, it looked like the perfect weekend. Until things started to go wrong....

It wasn't much at first -- a snowman that melted when it shouldn't have, a weird phone call. But then somebody went out for "one last run" and didn't come back. And the storm they heard about on the radio was getting worse. Lara thought everyone was up there for a good time. But she was beginning to realize that someone was up there for murder...

Weekend by Christopher Pike (Book Review)

The weekend in Mexico sounded like a dream vacation. Four guys, five girls--and a gorgeous ocean-side mansion all to themselves. It should have been perfect.

Except nothing was going the way they'd planned. There was the girl upstairs who was fighting for her life. The phone lines that went dead. And the explosion in the garage that could have killed them all.

But not even that prepared them for what happened next. Because while they were getting some sun, someone else was getting revenge--and the terror wouldn't stop until the weekend was over.

Wow, by the time I sat down and found the time to write this review its now a month or so after I finished reading it. My hubby’s been off of work with medical issues for the last month and I haven’t had a moment.. Continue reading

Mimesis (2011)

When they accept an invitation to an exclusive party at a remote farm, seven strangers who love scary movies find themselves unwilling participants in a nightmarish role-playing game that pays homage to a classic horror film.

ere’s one that was mailed to me that I’d never heard about before. I had no idea what “Mimesis” even meant until later when its defined within the movie. It basically means to imitate. Which exactly what this movie does... Continue reading

First Date (Fear Street #16) by R.L. Stine (Book Review)

Chelsea is the typical shy girl. Always home on a Saturday night, she would give anything to have her first date. Finally, Chelsea's luck begins to change when two new guys move into town and both ask her out. Too bad that one of Chelsea's new boys has a terrible hobby -- murder. Now Chelsea may be looking for love, but he's looking for a new victim.

As a teenager in Jr. High, I LOVED R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike books. I was a huge horror fan, but I wasn’t into reading at all until I picked up R.L. Stine’s “Hit & Run” book back when I was 12 or 13 years old. From that point on I was hooked... Continue reading

Paranormal Activity 4 (2012)

A Nevada family that includes teen daughter Alex and her younger brother, Wyatt, takes in Robbie, a young neighbor, after his mother is rushed to the hospital. When strange things begin to happen, Alex can't help but link the ominous happenings to Robbie's presence.

I've semi-enjoyed the previous entries to this series. That’s not to say that I've loved them or hated them. You can find my reviews for PA2 & PA3 by following those links. I never got around to reviewing the first film though, so you won’t find a review for that one, although I do touch base on it in my PA2 review... Continue reading

All Hallow’s Eve: The One Day it’s BAD to be Good by Carolyn McCray (Book Review)

People are being martyred but not for their faith. Instead the deaths are part of a serial killer's sick game as he chooses his victim by their name... then kills them in that Saint's grisly manner.

After finally finishing this book, I’m not quite sure what to think of it. In the end it was a mix of an adult book (with the police aspect) and a young adult slasher novel (with most of the character development between... Continue reading
