CREEPSHOW: The Taker by Elley Cooper


Creepshow: The TakerCreepshow: The Taker by Elley Cooper
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I love Creepshow, so when I found out about this book, I HAD to buy a copy...

And I was SO VERY disappointed.

OMG, where do I begin with this? Do I start by mentioning that neither of these stories had any Creepshow vibes? Do I mention how they were obviously trying to be Goosebumps and failed miserably? Or maybe I should just say that neither of these stories was even remotely creepy, freaky or scary?! They were so dull. So... ugh.

The first story, The Taker was so predictable I knew how it would end after the first chapter. And getting there was a struggle of endless dancing chatter, silly mean girls and boring conversations.

Didn't like this much.

The second story, Pretty Polly was slightly better but once again, not creepy at all. I actually didn't buy anything that was going on. And worse still, I didn't care.

So, there you have it.

In my opinion, as a fan of this franchise since the 80s, these two stories are terrible. They lack the addictive quality of Creepshow tales, failed to hook me in or keep my attention, and they were NOT creepy or freaky or scary. Or even campy. 😐

Think I'll stick with the show.
