In this three-part series we have what has been determined over time to be the basic formula for good horror.
Teenagers + Sex + Bad Decisions + Drugs and Alcohol+ Road Trip = TRUE HORROR
I mean, we really do have the majority of the key elements to what makes a successful horror story.
In THIS story, a group of six friends embark on a road trip to the mysteriously famed Bridgewater Triangle. According to Massachusetts locals, Bridgewater Triangle is the site of a number of unexplained paranormal activities. Rumored to be overwhelmed with giant snakes, UFO sightings, ghosts and hauntings and just pure evil and vengeful creatures, the six college freshmen set out to seek the experiences they have only heard about.
One of the six is participating in the excursion because he is fascinated by the myths and legends surrounding the Bridgewater Triangle. The others are basically along for the ride and to get high, get drunk and get laid. Tent sex, for all but maybe two people, is top priority.
Once they get there, things start to get weirder and weirder. Naturally, the group starts to branch off into couples to have a little privacy. But tent sex isn’t the only thing going on at these camping grounds. Now, it’s all about myths, truths and survival. Who gets laid and who gets DEAD?
You’ll have to read to find out.
I really enjoyed this three-part mini-series. I think if I had to choose a favorite issue out of the three it would be the third. I like the writing in that one the best, and the artwork is excellent in all three. Yet it is probably the best in issue #2.
I do get a kick out of the use of the basic horror formula and the basic horror rules. That makes it feels like classic horror, especially with the urban legend aspect. All put together, it does have an extra special creep factor that is sure to satisfy you horror fanatics.
