Yet another supernatural evil in small town type story that I can't seem to get enough of complete with your standard horror fiction stereotypes who must band together to defeat it My rating doesn't reflect the fact that I actually really enjoyed this for the most part but unfortunately it all became just a bit too over the top andwelllet's just say sillyHere's the basic setup A series of gruesome inexplicable murders have been happening in the small California town of Ravina mostly taking place in and around the local cemetery that's situated on top of a giant hill overlooking the town The old local archaeologist Martin Larchmont of course knows a thing or two about the town's forgotten unsavory history of mysterious seemingly supernaturally influenced deaths and must convince his former student and the town sheriff that an ancient and powerful evil has returned They're both highly skeptical but as the death toll and sightings of the animated dead rises they soon have no choice but to believe and try to combat the burgeoning threatPretty typical but what initially elevates this slightly above most midlist mass markets of the era namely a relatively tight pace and a handful of genuinely creepy moments soon descends into pure ridiculousness by story's end I pretty much lost interest during the latter chapters but the first 23 make up for it somewhat despite the cardboard characters and standard issue plot It's actually a rather fun read if you're in the mood for some mindless pulpy horror 30 Stars

This was definitely fun light reading for finals week It was also my first intro to Patrick Whalen In a nutshell Out of the Night is cheesier and self aware than a lot of the 80s horror I’ve read; by that I mean the story doesn’t take itself seriously at all It’s constantly one upping itself and gets ludicrous as it progresses While this does show skill and smarts on the author’s part it doesn’t necessarily mean the book is good; most of the characters are pretty cardboard and when they die it’s usually silly That being said there are some GREAT visuals that will touch any horror fan’s heart Sometimes a self aware horror tale can be awesome the movie Cemetery Man is a great example But where Cemetery Man succeeds is where Out of the Night fails The former is like a dreamy fantasy that acts like a horror image filled dark ride while this book is basically a normal stale horror storybut a “clever” one
