Genre: Slasher Horror
Actual Rating: 4 stars
Another nostalgic 80's horror slasher novel from Cameron Roubique! I first started reading his books because I was in the mood for horror and the cover for Kill River caught my eye. Then I read it, fell in love with the way he transported me back to the 80's where horror was it it's prime, and have been anxious for more since. Disco Deathtrap is NOT Kill River. If you choose to read this in hopes that it will be a replica of that book you will be disappointed. Sure, his writing is the same (I feel like he writes like a more mature version of R.L. Stine), and the characters and their actions are similar to those in the former books, but the story is MUCH different. This book is much more gory. The killer is revealed in a shocking twist (whereas readers didn't really know who the killer was in Kill River), and favorite character we were rooting on may or may not be story survivors. A couple of the kills in this book had me saying "Aw Man!". Try not to be too disappointed if you feel this way too! That being said, I'm personally glad it's not an exact replica of Kill River because honestly, it would get old after a while. We as readers want to see different things from authors and Cameron SLAYS both series.
Disco Deathtrap is truly everything an 80's horror fan is looking for in a novel. I truly hope Cameron continues to write these books because he has made a fan out of me. If you are a genuine horror fan, one that enjoys slasher novels with lots of blood and gore, you won't want to miss this one. Cameron is a unique and talented author that is easily becoming one of my favorites in the genre.
