The Returning

DUDE. Check it:

R.L. Stine to relaunch the Fear Street series

R.L. Stine is revisiting Fear Street. The longtime horror author (and Eureeka’s Castle head writer) killed his young-adult series in 1995, but will revive it just in time for Halloween 2014, when Thomas Dunne Books will release the first new Fear Street book in nearly 20 years, Party Games. In a statement, Stine said he’s stoked to “explore new horrors"—though with 52 existing Fear Street books, and 101 other Fear Street-based books in various spinoffs, the author will have to mine new depths of the fictional Shadyside to uncover new ghosts, murder mysteries, and tales of woe and gore. Might we suggest another investigation into the life and death of alleged witches Susannah and Martha Goode? Certainly they have some more relatives by now.

 I'm squeeeeeeeeing on the inside, babe. Truly!!! The title is such a classic Fear Street title. Party Games. I can already imagine the cover blurb: DEATH is the only game at this party. I demand that you leave your cover blurb ideas in the comments. It's our own Fear-y Halloween game. Like bobbing for apples with a lot less pay off. If you consider apples to be a pay off...

Best. Cover. Ever.

This is the best cover of any Fear Street book I have ever seen.

That is a vampire carousel horse. How did I never find this before? It's truly a vision of beauty that the Internet clearly does not appreciate because I couldn't find a better photo. Of course the cover with the half naked chick on it is EVERYWHERE.

What the hell does she have that a vampire carousel horse doesn't? (Don't you DARE say boobs, dammit!)

It's been a while since I reviewed this one, but I'm pretty sure I hated it...

Sometimes They Come Back...

Dude! Point Horror has returned from the grave! As further proof that I am a nerdy loser, I nearly wet myself when I realized there would be new Point Horror releases in the coming months. In case you have forgotten the majesty that is Point Horror, here are a few of their elderly gems:

Such delicious cheese. And here are a few of the new releases:

Classy new design, but they still kept the cheesy tag lines, only updated for this newfangled Internet generation. My favorite has got to be "Lacey has changed her status to deceased."

Seriously, I love Point Horror. After I FINALLY post Trapped, I think I need to do some Point Horror reviews (the old books, of course) in honor of Point Horror's resurrection.


P.S. I just bought a copy of R.L. Stine's newest novel Red Rain. I cannot wait to read and review this one. Should be...interesting.
