Product description

It was a horror movie that turned into real horror - three young actors lost their lives while the camera rolled. Production stopped, and people claimed that the movie was cursed. Sixty years later, in a desperate attempt to revive their failing studio, Claire's dad has green-lit a remake of Mayhem Manor - and Claire and her friends are dying to be involved. At first, Claire laughs at Jake's talk of ghosts and curses. He's been too busy crushing on her best friend Delia to notice that she's practically been throwing herself at him. And anyway, this is her big chance to be a star! When shooting starts, though, the set is plagued by a series of horrible accidents-could history be repeating itself?

Review quote

"Romantic comedy quickly turns to horror and revenge in this story of glam teen movie stars haunted by a Hollywood curse. Enough scares to keep you guessing--and screaming!" --Harlan Coben, author of "Seconds Away " Praise for "It's the First Day of School Forever" "Stine takes the normal anxieties of childhood--in this case, the first day at a new school--and blends exaggerated humor with a few equally exaggerated moments of horror in a fast and goofy romp. Lots of fun for Stine fans." --"Booklist"* "As usual, Stine delivers the hilarity and horror that readers love, and his mastery of sustaining mood will not disappoint. . . . Kids will love the twist at the end." --"School Library Journal", starred review"""Stine's signature blend of horror and humor, combined with an unexpected ending, offers a fresh view on a familiar idea." --ABC New York Praise for "Red Rain" "Stine has a freshly terrifying story to tell, and he tells it with gusto, ratcheting up the chills until we're frozen in our chairs. Parents, be warned: this is emphatically not for younger readers." --"Booklist""It's a page turner until the end, with short chapters that help increase the pace. Stine enjoys himself writing not for kids but about them." --Associated Press "Stine's story is a creepy, fun read." --"Library Journal" "With this brilliantly written novel "Red Rain", Stine proves that he definitely has it in him to challenge the greats in the thriller/horror genre. . . . Think Dean Koontz, Douglas Preston, Harlan Coben and then amp it up by a hundred!" --MysteryNet.com
