Synopsis: These woods are dark and full of monsters…
In 1991, hell was unleashed upon Saint Christopher’s Summer Camp for Kids. The killers left behind piles of bodies and rivers of blood. Some say a family of inbred cannibals was responsible. A masked psychopath with a butcher’s knife is another popular theory. Some still believe a camp counselor lost his mind and went crazy on everyone with an axe. But there’s also the mysterious, derelict factory that sits nearby, atop Kill Hill. A place where urban legends are manufactured, the grotesque and bizarre.
Twenty-five years later, the factory on Kill Hill is still said to be operational, but no one can get near it. It’s safely guarded along with the secrets within. But there are a few loose strings and hitman Frank Harmon has been sent to tie them up. His kill list is short, but the night is long and full of unspeakable horrors. With the help of a few college students on an impromptu camping adventure, Frank must contain the mess at Kill Hill before it spreads to the neighboring towns. Before it infects the entire country. Before it invades the entire world.
From the fantastical, high-octane mind of Tim Meyer, author of Sharkwater Beach and In the House of Mirrors, comes his most frightening tale yet! Summer camp this year is at your own risk.
Review copy provided in exchange for an honest review
Kill Hill Carnage was my first experience reading Tim Meyer, and a fantastic experience it was. The story was off to a quick start with plenty of action and bloodshed. I dug the old school feel of an ‘80’s horror movie with teens at camp and a crazy monster killing everything in its path. Then the story reset to the present we got a colorful set of characters who played the typical horror movie characters, but were a lot more fun. Kill Hill Carnage was a great creature filled gore fest, with a ton of tension and suspense throughout, and was hard to put down. The numerous references to the kid’s situation paralleling a horror movie was funny. I think the way Tim weaved the events from ’91 as interludes was brilliant. He gave us a little bits of the mystery as the plot unfolded. I enjoyed this book in every way, and it checked off all the boxes I needed for a great horror, thriller, and suspense filled story. The ending was nail biting as all the secrets that were revealed.
