Dove recaps Sweet Valley Twins Super Chiller 1: The Christmas Ghost.
recaps by dove
Dove recaps Necromentia (2009) wherein: demons are dicks, humans don’t decompose, lawyers can’t be trusted, singing pigs are massively dodgy, and I hope JC is still talking to me.
Dove recaps After the Hole by Guy Burt, and after fifteen years still isn’t really sure what happened down there
Dove recaps The Hole (2001) wherein everyone over the age of eighteen is absolutely incapable of rational thought, and those under that age are terrifying.
Dove recaps her most beloved horror movie, A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984). It’s a love fest. From beginning to end.
Dove recaps Wickedpedia by Chris van Etten, one of the new Point Horrors, that address the injustice of the lack of diversity of leads in PH: we need MOAR WHITE MALES. And that’s probably the least shitty thing about this book. Brace yourself.
Dove recaps Books of Blood 3: The Coach by M. C. Sumner, which is not really an accurate title, but behold EVEN MORE VAMPIRES, and they can look like anyone.
Dove recaps Books of Blood 2: The Hunger by M. C. Sumner, where we have new characters and MOAR VAMPIRES.
Dove recaps Books of Blood 1: The Principal by M. C. Sumner where Talli is going to save the world from vampires. And it’s as cool as it sounds.
Dove finally loops back to complete Haunting Christmas Tales by various, almost a year later. This recap contains the best short story of the set. And one so bad it gets recapped in five sentences.
Dove recaps Hall Pass by Robert Hawks, and still has no idea what it was about.
Dove recaps the Point Horror staple, The Accident by Diane Hoh, where a nice girl swaps places with a ghost and, shocker, that turns out to be a Very. Bad. Idea.
Dove recaps Fatal Secrets by Richie Tankersley Cusick, the love child of Cusick’s meandering dirge and Michael Bay’s assumption that explosions will fix everything.
Dove recaps The Invitation by Diane Hoh where a bunch of unfortunates are invited to the coolest party of the year… as the victims. It’s like The Purge, only less happens and nobody cares.
Dove recaps The Stranger by Caroline B Cooney, which turns out to be an unexpected joy. It is basically Twilight, except the Bella character is not an energy-sucking void, and the Edward character is cursed with an *actual curse*, rather than “tragically attractive and awfully good at everything he does”.
Dove recaps The Vampire’s Promise (Vampire Series: Book 3) by Caroline B. Cooney, where nobody trades humans for beauty or popularity, but there is a random donut-eating policewoman for no fucking reason at all.
Dove recaps Return of the Vampire (Vampire Series: Book 2) by Caroline B. Cooney, where Devnee trades humans not for popularity like Althea, but for beauty. It goes about as well as can be expected.
Dove recaps My Secret Admirer by Carol Ellis with is probably the tropiest of all the Point Horrors, but has a good lead character and a cool setting.
Dove recaps Help Wanted by Richie Tankersley Cusick and has to resort to bullet points, as this book has a lot going on, most of which is silly, pointless, or offensive.
Dove recaps the first half of Haunting Christmas Tales by various authors. Don’t be misled by the summary, there is no framing story. Neither should the 13 series in Point Horror give you unrealistic expectations about the quality of these stories. They’re pretty average.
