A crack team of animated teen detectives, The Blyton Summer Detective Club, solved their last case thirteen years ago. Though they caught the culprit (a guy in a costume with an evil scheme), all four of the kids never forgot that terrifying night they spent in a haunted house.
Now young adults, the members of the detective club are not doing so well: Kerri is a bartender with a drinking problem, Andy (deemed too aggressive for the military) has escaped from prison and is on the run, Nate is in an asylum, and Peter has killed himself. Andy is the one who decides the team has to get back together and revisit the scene of their last case, and put the true mystery to rest at all costs. That way, she figures, they’ll all be able to move on with their lives.
And it turns out there’s a lot more than just a guy in a mask waiting for them at the haunted mansion.
It’s inventive, original, and funny, with truly creepy scenes, lots of monsters, a suspenseful climax, tons of action, and a great mystery. It’s like Lovecraft blended with Scooby Doo!
If you like horror that doesn’t skimp on the comedy, give this a read this Halloween!
