Book review: All-Night Terror – Adam Cesare & Matt Serafini


‘All-Night Terror’ was originally published back in 2013. Recently, those fine chaps at Sinister Grin Press have re-released it with some kick-ass new cover art AND four NEW stories!

The concept of ‘All-Night Terror’ is very cool. It is a series of short stories that pay homage to the video nasties from the 1980s. Part ‘Tales from the Crypt’ and part ‘Twilight Zone’ this book is everything the b-movie horror fan is looking for. There are tales about cryptids, action figures that come to life and much, much more. All of the stories are tied together by a common thread. A series of intermissions serve as another story in which a deranged employee has taken over his local television station creating havoc and panic.

Adam Cesare and Matt Serafini wear their hearts on their sleeves. You can tell that these guys have a real connection to the horror genre and this particular time. There isn’t in-depth character development, that isn’t why you read books like this. You read books like this because you have fond memories of a time when gore ruled the screens, when Freddy Kruger was the most frightening thing ever and you stayed up way past your bedtime to watch ‘Tales from the Crypt’. It’s a book written with heart and passion, features some ripper stories and is a great way to kill a couple of hours or dive in and out of during coffee breaks.

All-Night Terror, Synopsis

You’re invited to experience ALL NIGHT TERROR. Don’t look for help, your weaker friends will be too scared to attend, but you’re in for the nightmare of your life.

Sit down in front of the TV and prepare for a late-night odyssey of wicked shocks as a horror movie marathon becomes a bloodbath before your very eyes. It starts when a disgruntled cable host seizes control of a television station, determined to give his viewers an evening they won’t soon forget. One where monsters of all shapes and sizes rise up against mankind. One where deranged killers prowl the night for a variety of victims. And one where cinema itself haunts its creators and creations.

Join modern horror stars Adam Cesare (Tribesmen, Zero Lives Remaining) and Matt Serafini (Feral, Island Red) as they bring you ten tales of fear that will have you shivering between the pages.

All-NIGHT TERROR—good to the last slash.

    I’ve read a few from each of them and will check this one out. Glad to see it’s in paperback as well as you can’t get all of their books outside of the US.
