{Book Review} Witching Hour Theatre by Jonathan Janz

Witching Hour Theatre is a great novella! I didn’t know what to expect. This is my first time reading Jonathan Janz, but it won’t be my last! This was a fun, quick read. Besides, what’s not to like about horror in a theater? The cover is what drew me in, but Jonathan Janz’s writing kept me turning the page. This is his first published work, but it reads like a seasoned author wrote it.

Larry Wilson lives for the Witching Hour Theatre at the Starlight Cinema. He’s also in love with the hot brunette that works the concession stand. The theater crowd starts thinning out during the horror movie marathon. What happened to all of the theater goers? Larry sees an entity seated in the back of the theater. It turns out, he has to fight for survival. Heads will roll!

Witching Hour Theatre reads like an 80s slasher film. Larry Wilson is the lovable loser who is in love with his dream girl. The pacing is perfect and the characters are believable. The first half is atmospheric and the second half is off to the races! It’s straight hack and slash! Will Larry Wilson survive the night?

The Forward and Afterword are great as well. I look forward to reading his other work!

I highly recommend this novella to fans of horror!

4.5/5 stars!
