Web of Horror
« on: May 25, 2009, 09:34:23 PM »
The Hardy Boys Casefiles #53
Web Of Horror
July 1991


Plot: After Joe witnesses a couch eating a man alive, things start to go wrong on the set of the latest Horror House movie.  A producer winds up dead, the Hardy's get acid at them, and some one is making fake heads.  What is going on and why is up to the Hardy's to find out.

Review:  I've read this book about 4 or 5 times now.  And each time it still is a really fun read, even though I don't like horror stories. 

But I have to say that I think this was the best series to have Web Of Horror in, since I don't think it would've fit in with the Original/Digest line, and it definitely would not have fit in with the Undercover Brothers line.  But with the Casefiles, because Simon & Schuster had built up a world that was more adult oriented and we had seen cases about homicidal maniacs and Assassins blowing up people, this case is a real first for a Hardy Boys book. 

Unfortunately there were some things that the author was apparently borrowing from Hollywood --- such as bullets being able to blow up a car's gas tank, but still the story was fun and interesting.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.

"Hey! Don't do that here. You'll mess up my bedspread."
Rolling his eyes, Joe sat on the window sill and started sawing.
"Thank you, Joe."
"You're welcome, Martha Stewart."

It's simple: The couch is bigger than man. Couch mad. Couch eat man.
