Something has taken a liking to the children of Mount Vernon, Washington. Its eyes are orange, and glow like fire. Its hissing voice is the autumn wind.

It hovers over them at night, casting snake-like shadows that dance on the walls. It laughs and taunts as they cry in their beds. It says it wants to take them trick-or-treating.

Halloween is in a week.

Kyle McIntosh is hardly aware when the first four kids are abducted, their families slaughtered. Though news-vans litter the streets, his 16-year-old heart has just been broken. Night-after-night, more children are taken. More bodies are left behind.

When Kyle’s little brother claims an orange-eyed monster has been visiting him at night, ignorance ceases to be an option – because their family might just be next.

My Review:

I received a review copy of ‘Cinema 7’ by Michael J Moore from Blackthorn Book Tours in return for my honest review as part of the blog tour.

This book follows Kyle Mcintosh, a 16-year-old boy who has just been dumped and has had his heart broken.

One night four children go missing and at least six people are found dead. Kyle is concerned as his ex-girlfriend lives nearby where the killings happened.

Over the next few days more and more children go missing and their families are all discovered dead.

Kyle becomes worried about his friends and family, especially when his little brother tells him a monster keeps visiting him at night.

Kyle and his new friend Marie start to investigate and try and work out what is going on, so they can try and stop the killings and the kidnappings.

Will they succeed? What is going on in this small town?

This book scared the life out of me, it had me looking behind my shoulder when leaving a dark room.

The further the book develops and the more children that go missing, the darker and scarier the storyline becomes.

I loved the new friendship between Kyle and Marie that starts in the book, as it allowed there to be at least a little bit of humour in between the terrifying horror.

I think this book will stay with me for a while, I have never read anything like it. I really enjoyed reading though and I will be looking for more from this author.

Overall, a terrifying and dark horror that will scare the life out of you.

My Rating:

💜💜💜💜.5 /5
