Cinema of Shadows (英语) 平装 – 2011年8月9日
Welcome to the Woodfield Movie Palace. The night the Titanic sank, it opened for business...and its builder died in his chair. In the 1950s, there was a fire; a balcony full of people burned to death. And years later, when it became the scene of one of Harmony, Indiana's most notorious murders, it closed for good. Abandoned, sealed, locked up tight...until now. Tonight, Professor Geoffrey Burke and his Parapsychology students have come to the Woodfield in search of evidence, hoping to find irrefutable proof of a haunting. Instead, they will discover that, in this theater, the terrors are not confined to the screen.

One Thing I really enjoyed was the characters they were all interesting and engaging. It is hard to make characters in a horror novel interesting and get you to care about them because honestly you never know what is going to happen.
The Cinema itself was an awesome setting. I loved the description of the beautiful old grand theater the way a theater should be. It made me what to grab a camera and explore the place.
I love the adventure that the characters went through. I love the tale of Kim and Tyler it is so fluid and wonderful.
The author writes people well. Especially the wide range of characters that existed in this book. I really liked that Professor Burke had a reason to be interested in parapsychology, it made it more real and believable.
I would highly recommend this book to Older Teens and adults. I enjoyed this book greatly and look forward reading some more by this author. I am so glad that I read this book in October it set the mood for the whole month. I will say this it is a fast read but it is for sure a great terrifying (in a good way) read.
I give this one 4.5 Stars out of 5.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Many of us go to the movie theatre to be frightened. The difference is this movie theater is terrifying and there is NO movie running. This novel is a first rate horror story.
Michael West creates realistic, likeable characters. I think that is what I like best about his books. I'm not a big fan of spooky stories but I like his and his characterizations are what make it likeable for me.
A professor and several volunteers decide to explore the paranormal aspects of a movie theatre with a sordid past. Each volunteer was chosen by the professor who is struggling to exorcise his personal demons. The volunteers were chosen due to their own experiences with some type of paranormal experience.
Dealing with one's fears can be difficult anytime but when there is a real basis for those fears it can be overwhelming. The characters are likeable and are forced to face their personal demons. West does a great job building tension and terror.
As I said after the last Michael West book I read, Spook House, I'm not a fan of horror stories but I really liked this rendition.
I enjoyed the book.
