All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Turtle Boy

Author: Kealan Patrick Burke

Two best friends, Timmy and Pete, go up to the pond one afternoon. They see a weird boy there dunking his feet in the water and letting turtles nipple at his flesh. Rattled the boys run away. After Timmy tells his parents what they saw, it starts off a chain reaction and pulls up neighborhood secrets.

My Take:
This novella is a quick read. It draws you in with the friendship of youth and pulls at your heart with suspected child abuse. About half way through it turns into an eerie ghost tale.

Rating: So Good
