Book Review: Kill Creek by Scott Thomas

My last review was of Shani Struther’s Eve: A Christmas Ghost Story. Kill Creek by Scott Thomas is another haunted house tale, yet very very different. While Eve is a cosy by the fire mystery, Kill Creek by Scott Thomas is a monster of a horror fest.

Four authors of types of horror are asked to spend Halloween night at a supposedly  haunted house as part of a social media/big brother type event. It’s when they go home the horror begins as the house insidiously gets into their heads.

I give this book a 5/5. The characters might be cliches in the terms of horror writers profiles. I mean I could certainly link them to real life horror writers. They were certainly well developed and I cared for them and their outcome. There may have been some lost routes along the way but when the author gets into the nitty gritty, it gets gory and ghostly. I don’t think you ever understand completely the origin of the horror in Kill Creek (and I may suspect it’s a premise that has been used before but I can’t quite put my finger on it). It is a good solid well written horror with everything I ask for: gore, ghosts and great characters. I found some of the descriptive writing really drew me in and although I found myself wondering how some of the characters managed to keep moving, it’s no more than any horror movie. In fact, this should be a horror movie. Please make it!

I'm a horror loving librarian with the need to share reviews of everything horror, gore and spooky related. I'm an avid reader of books, mainly horror, definitely supernatural. I'm a pagan and like to define myself as an eclectic witch. Halloween/Samhain is my favourite time of year from everything pumpkin spiced, the scent of decay and the veil between worlds thinning. So, here we are to share all things blood splattered, things that go bump in the night and crawl out of the darkness.
