This week I take a look at the book that takes a not so serious look at one of the few reality television shows I enjoy: Ghost Hunting shows. This one follows Simon Smoke, the host of one such show named SQUASH!. On its fifth season, the ratings aren’t doing well at all. In order to keep the show from being canceled, Simon takes his video crew to the small town of Pleasant Storm, TX on the fiftieth anniversary of a blood bath that decimated the town. Blamed on the Car Nex, or Carnivore Nextdoor, the team doesn’t hold much hope of seeing a return of the beast. By the end of the night, they will have wished they were right.
I found this story to be a fun little tale told in a less than serious manner, which I’m sure the author fully intended. As a passing the time sort of story, this one delivers pretty solidly. If you prefer your horror less tongue in cheek and more serious, then this story may not be for you. All in all, I recommend this story in the Car Nex universe to people looking for a little light horror.
Until next time Addicts,
