Hallows Eve (2004)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
12.20.04

Hallows Eve (2004) Author: Al SarrantonioIf you're in the mood for an ultimate Halloween-theme story then HALLOWS EVE will deliver you the goods.Corrie Phaeder, who had fled his hometown of Orangefield twelve years before, is drawn back this Halloween to bring closure to the terrible nightmares-and reality-he had as a child. When he was seven-years-old he started hearing and seeing Them, creatures from another dimension. He also has to deal with Kathy Marks, the woman he had abandoned to Orangefield right after the murder of his mother.Bill Grant, a local detective, still thinks that Phaeder had killed his mother and gotten away with it, so keeps a close eye on him when he returns. The jaded policeman is eventually convinced that the supernatural is involved when he starts seeing the weird things going on around Halloween and comes face to face with a legion of pumpkin-headed monsters. In fact, he becomes pivotal in making sure Phaeder fulfills his destined role. Yet, there may be someone else who is in fact more important in stopping 'The Dark One' from destroying the Earth. This is a little girl named Regina Bright, who has just started hearing those same voices and seeing the creatures Phaeder had as a child.The character of Samhain plays a major role, though it's left rather vague why he had settled in Orangefield to begin with. And let's not forget 'John', a jack-o-lantern headed man who tries to direct events in the right direction.The book moves quickly, though I didn't enjoy it quite as much as Sarrantonio's ultimate werewolf tale, MOONBANE. I think this is because I've come across 'a guy returning home to put-the-ghost-to-rest' scenario one too many times. There's also a twist revelation about a character that I just didn't buy. It reminded me of that Robin Williams after-death movie WHAT DREAMS MAY COME-and I did not like that film. Nevertheless, HALLOWS EVE is decent read, filled with quirky characters and some truly dire situations.From Leisure Books, www.dorchesterpub.com
