Review - Rotten School: Night of the Creepy Things



128 pages: Amazon
Wow! This year has really went by fast. It seems like it was yesterday when I first started my Thursday ReReads posts, but now here I am reviewing book 14 of the Rotten School series (only two more books left).

This entry is titled "Night of The Living Creepy Things," which is a spoof of the famous zombie film "Night of the Living Dead," though the plot doesn't involve zombies.

The story centers on the greatest horror director, B.A. Gool, visiting Rotten School to give a speech about his films, and to make a great announcement - he will be judging a horror film contest on Halloween Night. The student that makes the scariest film will win a  role in B.A. Gool's next movie. And of course Bernie Bridges, aka Rotten School's 4th-grade schemer, is determined to win the contest.

But there's one little bitty problem - Bernie cannot come up with a scary idea.

It seems all the other students have already taken all the best ideas, like "Attack of the Toad People" and "Horror Zoo."

To win th contest, Bernie will once again have to do some scheming on his fellow classmate.

Final Thoughts: Being a life-long horror fan, this happens to be my favorite book in the Rotten School series; which might be surprising to some as there less laughs in this one. However, what stands out are all the illustrations by Trip Park. Most of the pictures are spoofs of old low-budget B-horror flicks from the 1950s and 1960s. Overall, Rotten School: Night of The Creepy Things was a delight to reread this week.
