“I really enjoyed The Bottoms and Savage Season (and the Hap & Leonard series), and being a huge horror fan, I thought this would be especially up my alley; this is not the Lansdale I expected nor love. This feels like a little kid trying to write a story where people go to see a movie, but then a mystery happens, and then monsters, and then aliens, and then dinosaurs, and then, and then, and then and then and then… But also, because he wants oh-so-much to be a big kid, he has to talk about the S-E-X (the grown-ups call it “fucking” — teehee). How many ways can a person describe rape, masturbation, sex, tits, assholes, anal sex, pussies, cocks…just so much nonstop crudity (and I’m not a prude by any means, but anything wears thin when it’s so goddamn incessant). Seriously, all of this just feels so immature, so repetitive, so trying to be a B-movie. But the problem is B-movies — in the format they’re intended — last 80 to 100 minutes and then we’re moving on; this just drags it’s childish, kitchen sink premise on for 10+ hours (your mileage may vary, depending on how fast you read) and it more than overstays it’s welcome.”
“This was like a crazy dream I had. Loved every second.”
