VIDEO NIGHT by Adam Cesare
Adam Cesare can write. He can review excellent horror movies, too. This is the second printing of VIDEO NIGHT. It was first published by Samhain, but sadly that publication is no longer around. This second printing is from Cesare's Black T-Shirt Books. I hope his publishing company takes off. Black T-Shirt Books has an excellent lineup of books. You guys should really check them out when you get a chance.
VIDEO NIGHT is everything I want in a horror movie. Adam Cesare gets the nostalgia of the 1980s. He packs a helluva one-two combo of vivid scenes and intriguing characters. If you are looking for a creature feature, then VIDEO NIGHT is the book for you. Damn... just thinking about this book makes me want to walk through my old video store one last time. Just one. Why couldn't cool things like this happen when I was in high school? Now, as for this book review, let's get to it.
Billy and Tom are best friends, but life is taking them down different paths. School is almost out and they want to make the best of it with one final video night. They've seen everything in their small video store. They can invite some girls over and grab a pizza. It will be a VIDEO NIGHT to remember! Something's about to invade a small town in Long Island. The town's occupants are vulnerable and unaware of the invasion.
Adam Cesare has written an infectious creature feature. VIDEO NIGHT grabs you with its claws and plants an egg inside you, making you think about the good old days. VIDEO NIGHT is a tome. Other authors can learn a thing or two from this great read. This book has the essentials: great characters, monsters, mayhem, gore, and nostalgia.
Adam Cesare's writing style is distinct. He reads quick. I couldn't put this book down. He delivers the fun. You don't simply read VIDEO NIGHT, you experience it. Everyone should read VIDEO NIGHT.
