Rating: 4.5/5 stars
In 1991, hell was unleashed upon Saint Christopher’s Summer Camp for Kids. The killers left behind piles of bodies and rivers of blood. Legends range from a family of inbred cannibals being responsible, to a masked psychopath with a butcher’s knife, to a camp counselor that lost their mind and went crazy with an axe. Looming atop the nearby Kill Hill is a mysterious, derelict factory. Twenty-five years later, the factory is still said to be operational, but no one can get near it. When a few college kids plan an impromptu camping adventure at the former summer camp they don’t realize that they’re getting more than the few jump scares they bargained for. Unspeakable horrors are once again coming to Kill Hill.
I love a solid summer camp slasher story and Tim Meyer absolutely delivers with KILL HILL CARNAGE! From the moment the reader starts meeting the characters and learning about the past of Kill Hill, they know something bad is coming. There’s so much action that it feels like a movie coming to life within the pages of this story. The action never once takes away from Meyer providing a depth to his characters with glimpses into just enough backstory to allow the reader to form a connection and cheer for their survival. Meyer expertly uses alternating viewpoints to weave together an interconnected story to bring all of the plots crashing together for a grand finale.
KILL HILL CARNAGE is a delightful mix of slasher, creature feature, gore, and thrills to keep any horror reader on the edge of their seat! This is my third book by Tim Meyer and he continues to be one of my favorites in the genre!
