Cinema of Shadows is an excellent little horror novel rooted deeply in the style of Stephen King and the notion of “the bad place.” The Woodfield Movie Palace is one of those places, a cursed structure where echoes of the horrors that went before still ring through to those who are listening. But more than the past lives there. An evil stalks the men and women who enter the Woodfield, ever seeking to add their souls to its growing tally of death.
Cinema of Shadows has everything you are looking for in a horror novel. Strong characters, an interesting location with a detailed history, chills and frights, unexpected twists and even a little true love. I love the paranormal investigation aspects, and having dabbled in that before, can testify to the accuracy of its portrayal. My only complaint is that the book felt a little short. Of course, that could be because I read it in all of two sittings. Buy the book. You won’t regret it.
