Corpse Rider – Tim Curran

IMG_0441

 

Christina was visiting her mother’s grave when a nearby headstone surrounded by weeds caught her eye. It saddened her that it wasn’t taken care of and kept up like all the others. She decided to clear the weeds and tidy it up. It all seemed so innocent. A good deed, really. But there was more to that grave site than the surname of CHARLES SLICK overgrown by foliage. The Slick family isn’t known in these parts by many anymore. Except Frank, the cemetary’s custodian. He knows about the family and the dirty secrets they harbor, even after all these years. Poor Christina. All she was doing was a good deed for a family she didn’t know. Too bad that good deed would unleash the Slick’s family secret on her and her life would never be the same.

Corpse Rider is a fun, fast-paced tale that keeps the pages turning at a blinding speed. Curran weaves a bit of gothic horror mixed with 1980’s B-horror movie fun. The obvious comparisons to the early 80’s movie, Basket Case, permeate the story. However, it is not a soulless derivative. Curran constructs a great story mixed with some memorable characters that breathes new life into an old classic. Very much worth your time.
