Scary, Haunting and Cool

  • Dec 5, 2012
Have you ever wanted to go on a ghost hunt? If so, read this novel first for some excellent practical suggestions—no smoking for a start. And if not, enjoy this ghost-hunting tale for the vicarious thrill of a truly scary encounter with the ghosts of a crumbling cinema.
“If this place isn’t haunted, it sure is dressed for the part,” muses one protagonist, and the Woodfield Movie Palace truly is—sumptuously classic, haunted with history, fallen into decay, and destined for demolition. Professor Burke and his parapsychology students are looking for genuine proof of a genuine haunting, expecting maybe the victims of a tragic fire, or a woman murdered by her lover, to come and speak to them. But each of the characters has his or her own experience with horror in the past, and the hand that binds the spirits doesn’t plan to be confined.
Backstory is well-timed, adding depth to characters the reader already cares about. Romance has just the right level of happenstance and human depth. And the horror creeps up on the reader, scary, double-edged and well-focused, serving the story well.
Harmony Indiana sounds like a town that will haunt the horror shelves for years to come, and Michael West is a writer to enjoy. For young adult upwards, Cinema of Shadows is highly recommended.
Disclosure: I bought this ebook on a deal and I’m really glad I found it.
