Larry is back…….again.
Fearfest is the biggest horror con, thanks to Wally Perkins. Like other cons, people dress in cosplay, watch cult films and usually have a good time. Thanks to Edie Travers, this year will go down in history, the year she resurrects her dead son and infamous pigface serial killer Larry.
As the story is set at a con, you can imagine the number of characters and whilst some only make a brief appearance, each one we meet have their own individual style. I had been to a number of cons and I have seen many people who fit the bill. Set in a multi screen cinema gave this story a different feel to the other two as although it was a large complex, the “victims” hiding places were more obvious. Who would hide in a toilet when a serial killer is on the prowl.
There is humour throughout and no one escapes getting the mick taken out of them, even the over exposed actor William Defoe. To find out what he was doing you need to read the book. Like your traditional slasher movies, you still have stereotypical girls, you know the ones, the ones who run and hide whilst screaming blue murder. The main group in fear of their lives were the most unusual group put together. A strong female, a dwarf and 2 cops stuck in the 80s. The killing sprees are bloody and the trusty axe is as sharp as ever, even Edie has a big part to play.
This was a quick read as there was always something going on. The author has a descriptive style that enables you clearly picture the scenes in front of you. Look out for appearances of popular films and the way they play a big part in the story. For the final part in the trilogy, this a good addition to the Larry series.
