Just Add Water (Mail Order Massacres)Just Add Water by Hunter Shea

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A fun, fast-paced, gruesome homage to 50's horror with child heroes and comic book references. When David and Patrick order Amazing Sea Serpents from the back of a comic book, they are at first disappointed, tossing the black blobs down the sewer. The creatures thrive to become merciless killing and eating machines and soon the whole suburban neighborhood is under attack. There's not any character development or literary pretension, just action, gore, and amusement.
