Haunted Mansion | 1 | review | book | Lollipop
by Sarah Katz
The first thing I saw was the Disney logo and thought to myself, "Self, what a waste of talent." The only name I recognized was Roman Dirge, so at least I knew ONE of the stories was going to be good.
Here's the scoop: This is an anthology of different stories by different authors based on the Disney attraction, The Haunted Mansion. I know, it sounds pretty lame, but like a peanut butter and pickle sandwich, don't knock it 'til you've tried it.
It's pretty decent. Not fucking phenomenal, but better than most of the mediocre shite out there. The death jokes are overused, but then it's acknowledged that the death jokes are overused, and when a story can make fun of itself, well, that's a good sign.
If you can't laugh at yourself, you've got nothing. For fans of JTHM, Lenore, and other creepy-crawly things.
