All-Night Terror is a collaborative collection of short stories. Adam Cesare and Matt Serafini are at the top of their game! This is my second time reading this book, and I rarely read books twice. It’s that good!
All-Night Terror is about those 1980s VHS horror movies we used to watch on the old tube tv. Yeah, you know the ones I’m talking about. When a book makes you nostalgic, you know it is something special. Matter of fact, I will probably bust out the old VHS player and watch Friday the 13th, A Nightmare On Elm Street, or Slaughter High.
Danny Chambers just wants to stay at home and catch a few horror movies. A fired TV host takes a TV station hostage. The crazed man makes the crew play his six favorite horror movies all night while the police are outside the TVstation.
The stories range from action figures coming to life to cryptids. This book even looks at classic horror remakes, a serial killer similar to Jason Vorhees, and horrific art. Each story brought something to the table, which makes this book stand out.
The four stories added on for the re-issue don’t mesh well with the rest of the collection, but the authors warn the readers about this in advance. The original six stories are tied together with intermissions that make the collection even better. The intermissions look at what is going on at the TV station.
Adam Cesare and Matt Serafini deliver the goods! This collection reminds me of Up All Night, Tales From The Crypt, and Tales From The Darkside. All-Night Terror makes me want to watch an 80’s horror movie!
I will definitely read the authors’ other works!
5/5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
