Not Bad - But, not Great
Reviewed in the United States on October 1, 2020
I had high expectations for this collection and for the most part a lot of these stories are decent. However, there many stories that fall short and are only mediocre. Several of them seemed rushed with a lot of illogical Deus est machina endings - that come across as just unimaginative writing. If you grew up in the 1980's like I did you'll probably dig all the nostalgic nods to the 80's pop culture and movie references. I only wish there had been more stories with Slashers (Freddie, Michael Meyers, Jason) in them as those kind of movies ruled supreme at my local Cinema. So with only one Serial killer/Slasher story in this volume - it disappointingly comes across lacking the true 80's movie going experience. For the price of this book I just expected a better collection.
