Night of the Mannequins by Stephen Graham Jones
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
This is the second book from this author I've read. I liked this one even less than the first, so this author must not be for me. Regardless, I thought this book was stupid. It starts out as more-or-less classic horror, a mannequin that comes to life and then goes on a killing spree, but then swerves into psychological horror and the exploration of the mind of a serial killer (and did the mannequin actually get up and walk out of the movie theater? Who knows?). Those would be unpleasant subjects at the best of times, and I think we would agree that this year has not been the best. But I don't think I would have cared for this disturbing little book in any year. At any rate, I'm taking this back to the library and moving on to something else.
