Video Nasty (Short Story Sunday Peril review)
Video Nasty, by Philip Pullman, is the story of three unsuspecting boys, a gruesome video, and a ghost...
Martin, Kevin, and David don't know what they are dealing with when they let the strange and mysterious boy watch their new video Snuff Park with them. At first they are just having fun, but then things start to get very scary. Just how does the weird boy know so much about Snuff Park?
I could tell straight away that this story was written by Philip Pullman. The dialogue was very similar to that of His Dark Materials. This was a very spooky story and I enjoyed every second of it. In fact, I can't wait to get to the next one!
This story gets 9 out of 10 stars.
