A chilling twist on the “cursed film” genre from the bestselling author of The Pallbearers Club and The Cabin at the End of the World.

In June 1993, a group of young guerilla filmmakers spent four weeks making Horror Movie, a notorious, disturbing, art-house horror flick.

The weird part? Only three of the film’s scenes were ever released to the public, but Horror Movie has nevertheless grown a rabid fanbase. Three decades later, Hollywood is pushing for a big budget reboot.

The man who played “The Thin Kid” is the only surviving cast member. He remembers all too well the secrets buried within the original screenplay, the bizarre events of the filming, and the dangerous crossed lines on set that resulted in tragedy. As memories flood back in, the boundaries between reality and film, past and present start to blur. But he’s going to help remake the film, even if it means navigating a world of cynical producers, egomaniacal directors, and surreal fan conventions—demons of the past be damned.

But at what cost? 

Horror Movie is an obsessive, psychologically chilling, and suspenseful feat of storytelling genius that builds inexorably to an unforgettable, mind-bending conclusion

5/5

I don’t often finish a book and love everything about it, but this one was definitely one of them. It was such a masterful descent into madness in both past and present storylines and I absolutely loved the ride.

The past was a great look into the horror of what had happened while filming the movie and where things started to go wrong. There was that uncanny feeling of something not being right but people were too anxious to finish and let things slide more and more. Then the present intertwined perfectly in between, mirroring the same decline, the same wrongness but finally wanting to finish what had started.

It was so well done, I really loved the story and the atmosphere it had. I really felt that dread all throughout and it really delivered by the end. Highly recommend this one!
