Witching Hour TheatreWitching Hour Theatre by Jonathan Janz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I finished this novella this morning and didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would.

Larry Wilson loves horror movies, and likes going to the Starlight Cinema all-night horror movie marathon even more. That there's a cute girl working there certainly makes the event even more appealing. But tonight, someone is lurking in the shadows...

Okay, let's start with the good things. I absolutely LOVE the cover. It's just so cool and certainly matches the story. I really enjoyed the first half of the story because it was interesting and was full of just the right creepy vibes. I also liked how the movie-watching experience was portrayed in a way that kept me reading and didn't bore me.

Unfortunately, after the audience thins out and Larry Wilson faces the threat, my attention started to drift. I don't know why, but somewhere along the way I started to lose interest during the section that usually keeps me glued to the story.

Maybe it's because I didn't really like Larry all that much and didn't care if he survived or not. Maybe it's because the tension collapsed for me. Could be that I didn't buy the romance. Or that the constant switching from Larry to Wilson lost me a couple of times.

I'm not sure what it was, but I really enjoyed the first half. And that spooky obscure movie they played really piqued my interest.
