Armed with a passion for classic B-grade horror movies, a script co-written by his twin brother, and a wicked crush on his death-obsessed neighbor; hardcore horror fan Jason Nightshade must finish his student film.

But his plans are derailed when the children of suburban Silver Creek start disappearing – his twin brother among them. Battling a possessed video camera, a crazy zombie dog, a monstrous bully, and a frighteningly broken down family life, Jason embarks on a mission to find his lost brother so the two can write an ending for his story. As an any horror fan knows, saving the day won't be easy, as Jason finds himself forced to face the real world where death isn't just a splash of fake blood on a camera lens. "Ryan Bradford proves that he’s up to the challenging work of never underestimating young adult readers in their ability to sniff out and reckon with nuance, while never overestimating adult readers, either, for being too wise to remember their youth. Horror Business is for all: a warm outstretched hand, and a chilling reminder." ~Adrian Van Young, Electric Lit

    If you read through the reviews for Horror Business, you'll see a lot of commentary to the effect of "Oh! That was good! And...I don't know what that was, I think! But...good?" It's sort of like when I would show my mother the poetry I wrote as a teenager. She tried so hard to be supportive, but there's only so much you can do when your son is writing about horror, sex, and boobs. Horror Business is actually exactly a lot like that.

She tried so hard to be supportive, but there's only so much you can do when your son is writing about horror, sex, and boobs. Horror Business is actually exactly a lot like that. It's classified as YA, but it's YA like how in the years I was supposed to be reading YA I was reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz instead. Because horror. Because boobs. And HB kind of belongs packaged with these two -- with King especially, as it sort of seems to take place in his weird nebulous Smalltown Northeast, which is not a real place. I know this because I am from the Smalltown Northeast and it is Not Really Like That, the way you think it must be -- I mean, it's kind of like that, how King writes about it or maybe how Lovecraft wrote about it first. Horror Business seems to take place inside a Stephen King novel, where it's still the 80's and the main currency is porn and VHS tapes. But it's also -- and I guess this is the weird thing -- it is also totally aware that this is where it takes place. Horror Business is set amongst the backwash of a teenage boy's brain, where death and hormones and grimy sexual fantasies have mixed like the cover of that one Metallica record. And in this teenage boy's brain, a boy named Jason Nightshade (yes) is making a horror movie with his friends (uh huh) shortly after his twin brother was abducted, the latest in a series of abductions of teenage boys in a small town. And, keeping in mind this is supposed to be YA, Jason is obsessed -- like, obsessed -- with horror movies and the history of horror movies and maybe fucking his teenage neighbor and he's terrified of his dad's porn collection and his dad is super excited about sharing his porn collection and Jason's dog might be a werewolf or a zombie, not in a cute Eerie, Indiana way, not in the standard Cujo way either, but in the way where your dog becomes this shambling mass of fur and oozing sores while you are too sad about your brother and too obsessed with your neighbor's boobs to really care, until your dog is dead. And if you followed me there, if you got the little feeling of the start of that sentence being one thing and then by the end maybe you thought I took the joke too far, then yeah -- okay -- you're seeing why Horror Business is the kind of book it is, why it's the kind of thing that would make your mother uncomfortable for you showing her your highschool poetry. I think the most telling thing about Horror Business is not the myriad horror references -- from the character's names, to the names of the characters in the movie the characters make, to the weird lines of dialogue and bits of visual reference that you will seriously only know if you spent every weekend of your teenagehood watching double or triple features of horror and softcore porn rented from the village video store -- like I said, it's really not any of that. I don't even know if all the references are like, intentional winks to the reader, or if Bradford's own obsession with this stuff can't help but vomit itself into the story's crevices. I think the most telling thing here is that when Jason Nightshade finally Almost Gets the Girl, they don't bond over The Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Evil Dead or any of the standard fare. It's when she brings over a copy of Eraserhead to share with Jason; it's really one of the few points in the story where she steps out of Jason's fantasy and gets to be an actual person. And seriously, Horror Business is, more than anything, an old-school horror story, digging deep into King's meticulous nostalgia, processed through the postmodernism of Scream, filtered at turns through the nerdiness of Dawson's Creek and Super 8, and then drenched in the blackness of a teenage boy's brain. But then -- then -- we take a turn through Eraserhead -- where exposition is discarded in favor of dreamscapes and imperfect symbology. Because the thing is, I'm not just a teenage boy trying to show my mother my poetry. I am also my mother, not quite sure what I'm holding here, totally uncomfortable and squirming in my shoes. I don't know if this book is an intentional left turn into the surreal, or maybe it just came out deformed and weird, and Bradford couldn't help himself but leave it that way. I don't know, you know? But that's as close as I can get.

    Sometimes the scariest thing in a fourteen-year-old’s life is loneliness. Horror Business, by Ryan Craig Bradford, tells the story of Jason Nightengale whose twin brother Brian went missing over a year ago. Brian’s not the only kid absent from the small town of Silver Creek, and nobody knows what to do, least of all Mr. and Mrs. Nightingale. Obsessed with horror movies, Jason continues to shoot the slasher movie he and his brother wrote together, staring Brian’s girlfriend Ally. But the script is Sometimes the scariest thing in a fourteen-year-old’s life is loneliness. Horror Business, by Ryan Craig Bradford, tells the story of Jason Nightengale whose twin brother Brian went missing over a year ago. Brian’s not the only kid absent from the small town of Silver Creek, and nobody knows what to do, least of all Mr. and Mrs. Nightingale. Obsessed with horror movies, Jason continues to shoot the slasher movie he and his brother wrote together, staring Brian’s girlfriend Ally. But the script is unfinished and Jason’s relationship with Ally is equally undefined. As October races closer and closer to Halloween, Jason’s imagination gets the best of him–or does it? What really hides in the closet or creeps in cemetery shadows? One thing’s for certain, it’s better to sleep with the lights turned on. I’m not a horror movie fan at all, but I am a fan of good writing and Bradford had me hooked from page one. Horror Business combines intelligence and entertainment into a particularly creepy read. There were a few times in the plot where I found myself thinking “Jason! What are you thinking? Don’t do that!”, but those scenes are all part of the horror genre. Of course the kids go the cemetery. Of course character X doesn’t go to the doctor in time. Those acts of stupidity build the tension until the plot explodes in bloody gore. A final note about Horror Business is that it’s a very rare YA book that features a fourteen-year-old main character. Probably the last twenty books I read that had fourteen-year-olds were MG, and meant for a grade school audience. Subsequently, the fourteen-year-olds in those books were squeaky clean renditions of what it actually means to be fourteen. I loved that this book–even thought it was fiction–was so real.

    It's unfortunate that so many people are quick to dismiss YA as 'immature' or somehow lacking compared to ordinary 'fiction'. What books like this do is illustrate the point that YA can be as gruesome, disturbing and unsettling as anything in other parts of literature, with the only difference being that the perspective is from that of Young Adults.

What books like this do is illustrate the point that YA can be as gruesome, disturbing and unsettling as anything in other parts of literature, with the only difference being that the perspective is from that of Young Adults. I can think back to reading Fear Street books that accomplished this, and often these kind of titles open up a whole new audience to horror, crime fiction, and other things. 'Horror Business' will hopefully get a lot of kids looking up titles like Eraserhead & Suspiria. What the author really captures here is not just a skin-crawling tale of monsters. He shows us where the real horror lies, in the awkward development of children into teens, the fearful uncertainty. The town that serves as a background is a device as well, like Derry in 'It' or 'Twin Peaks'; a strange, dark force unto itself, representing the fear of the unknown that exists in all children, if not all people. When the daily horror of normal life is coupled with actual terrifying events, all inside a mind cultivated from an entire spectrum of horror movies, we get something much more dark than if the character was a thirty year old man. While I usually bristle when the 'monster' is left too ambiguous, it's a great metaphor for the unknown evil of the world that we all come to know eventually. This book is on a level of traditional horror fiction, but I do hope that it finds its way mostly into the hands of it's younger, intended audience. Hopefully, they will relate and commiserate with the fearful uncertainty in the books with their own experiences, and understand that we all went through the same thing. It scares us, too. But you are not alone.

    I found this book strange, scary, and absolutely lovely all at the same time. Because horror is a genre that I do not have a good handle on, I can't say much about the horror elements, except to say that it all worked for me. But, from a literature standpoint, there's so much good stuff in here. The characters are rich: both endearing and frustrating at the same time. I love that everyone is so real, coping in very different and very legitimate ways with some very unreal situations.

I thought of Eugenides's "The Virgin Suicides" several times as I read: maybe it was the way it taps into the mind of a teenage boy without being overbearing about it, or maybe the cursed small town. The construct of mysteriously disappearing children -- including the main character's twin brother -- makes for eerie and chilling undertones that are sometimes deliciously subtle. It reminded me of some of the better moments of Welcome To Nightvale episodes. It's a great story: unsettling and weirdly charming, and a super fast read.

    What's great about Bradford's style is that he makes use of certain criteria so that you feel as though your high school friend is reminiscing about a past event the two of you shared, bringing up the good, the bad, and the ugly, but most of all, the brutal feeling of being young. I thought Horror Business did a great job of implementing a creative style around a spooky story and making it seem just as tense and unpredictable as a cheesy 80's slash film (the kind you used to watch at sleepovers) What's great about Bradford's style is that he makes use of certain criteria so that you feel as though your high school friend is reminiscing about a past event the two of you shared, bringing up the good, the bad, and the ugly, but most of all, the brutal feeling of being young.

    Horror Business is a very lovingly written book, by somebody who clearly has a lot of passion for the genre. If you share that passion I'd be quite surprised if you don't enjoy this. Charming, unsettling, and the right kind of gross.

It was a lot of fun, especially the bit when some of my favorites were mentioned (like A Nightmare on Elm Street ! Classic!) or ones I've never seen/heard of before. I got a whole list of awesome-sounding horror movie to go watch now! :D One thing that kinda bothered me was that it felt like a couple of different stories were being told instead of one, although I suppose that was the point. But they didn't really feel all that interrelated. While the story wasn't exactly jumpy and confusing, I just wasn't feeling it. We're filming a movie, then our zombie dog is going nuts-o, all while kids in town are going missing... Just, what? But, okay, I'll admit, my favorite part of the book was actually the script that Jason and his brother were working on. It was a pretty good slasher flick, one I'd probably watch, were it a real movie! A big part of the story revolves around Jason's missing twin brother. I was very curious to find out what happened to him, but my curiosity was not fulfilled entirely. We are left with a sort of open ending, which some people might be okay with, but not me. But overall, I really enjoyed the read! I really loved the writing... It was almost poetic, in a gory, creepy sort of way. Just how I like it! I loved all the references and little tidbits we learned about some of the best classic horror movies out there (another of my favorite parts), and the amazing, creepy descriptions. Although I was kind of iffy on all these different stories correlating with one another (until the end, that is), I did find myself enjoying the stories separately. A definite must-read if you are a fan of the horror genre or of you're barely getting into it. You guys will definitely find some great horror movies referenced here that you'll want to watch!

    What an incredibly strange, gory, crazy ride this was! I am a huge fan of all of the old horror flicks. Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Jason....

He is in the middle of filming his student film, with the help of the girl he has always crushed on his star! Jason and his brother were both horror movie loving, film-making obsessed guys, until his brother was taken, along with several other children. They all disappeared without a trace, leaving a broken twin brother, and a worry filled town behind. I really enjoyed this mash-up horror story! We have ghosts, vampires, weird wood creatures, zombies, a mutating dog, haunted graveyards, creepy neighbors, and the school bully. The story weaves between each element, back and forth, at breakneck speed. In between living with Jason through his story, we get pieces of his and his brothers movie script, which adds a new element to the story. There is a romance in Horror Business, between Jason and his horror loving neighbor,Ally. It is never becomes the main focus of the story, but it was a really cute aside in places. I enjoyed Ally, as a character. She was hard to pin down, and confused me as much as she confused Jason, but I enjoyed her scenes and their interactions. Jason was definitely an interesting MC. I enjoyed him, but never really found him relate-able. As a whole, the characters are very well fleshed out, and definitely pack a punch! This whole entire story packs a punch, and for the most part I enjoyed it. The pacing, at times, felt really slow, and I feel like some of the horror elements weren't delved into deep enough. I would have liked more time spent on each, as a whole. And I really wish there had been some serious scares! Would I recommend Horror Business? If you are a fan of B-grade slasher films, and horror movies, I would say absolutely go for it. There is language, and some sexual scenes, and many, MANY comments about boobs! MANY!

    What I liked: This book had several moments where the horror was played well into the story and actually made the tension big enough that I was almost glued to the page to see what was going to happen. I really liked reading the different parts about the script the brothers had written, it was interesting to see what their mind had come up with to use to make a movie. We even have a few creepy characters who you question and wonder about what their motives and places in the story would be.

We even have a few creepy characters who you question and wonder about what their motives and places in the story would be. There was also this cemetery they visit and it had some creepy feeling to it. What I didn't like: Closer to the ending there was an entire section that read more like it should have been in a script instead of in the book. It was fast, jumpy, and very confusing. This is also a kid who watches all the old horror movies, and if he did I'm sure he would have caught on really quickly what had happened to his dog, but he just seemed to wander around really not paying the dog any mind as to what was happening to it even though it was very obvious to me what he should have realized even sooner. It also lacks focus upon the horror movie in the way I thought it would happen, its more of a cheesy horror story than anything, even with the scary parts. Overall Review: It wasn't what I was expecting when I started reading it, it has more of a focus of his family falling apart after the lose of his brother and this girl he's really into and wants to get with who dated his brother before he disappeared. There were portions in between chapters that gave snippets of the script which I found to be really engrossing and I would have liked to see more of how it played out. While this is a tribute to all those B-grade horror flicks, it wasn't all that bad and had some really good moments of its own. It even had a section where it was a bunch of different facts about different horror movies over the years that I found really entertaining and really enjoyed seeing those little snippets of information about the different horror movies I've seen. Recommend?: If your a horror fan and like B-grade movies this would be something you enjoy!

I mean, I figured it was going to be an intense story with a kid who just cannot catch a break. But the whole book was way...stranger?...than I thought it might be. Which is not necessarily a bad thing! This book is very much broken up. Jason switches between talking about his brother and his zombie dog (yes, an actual zombie dog that has died and come back to life and eats brains), his broken home life, the girl he likes, the movie he's trying to finish, and pretty much every other thing happening in his life over the course of (I think) several weeks. It's crazy and weird and written almost like a screen play with stage directions and acts and all of that jazz. Despite all of the weird things that happen in this book - I think there's a supernatural entity that's capturing the kids and... I'm not really sure what it's doing with them, actually - it kept me engaged and I found myself staying awake longer than I probably should have to read more. I had to know what was going to happen next and if it was all a dream or just the script for a homemade B-movie, but I still honestly have no idea. I would say that this book is for older audiences though since it is a little scary and gory and there are a couple steamier scenes. Overall, this was a really interesting read and although I'm still not entirely sure what happened, I would totally still recommend it to anyone looking for a horror novel that's way out in left field. I think I'll probably do a re-read eventually, just to see if I can figure things out more. I'd give this book a 3.5/5 and am looking forward to reading whatever Ryan Craig Bradford has up his sleeves next!

As more and more teens go missing in Silver Creek, other strange things happen as well. Jason is no longer dealing with botched lines and fake blood.

Reality is much scarier and he’ll have to be smart to find his brother and the other missing teens and not become a fatality himself. Whether reality or fantasy, nothing can be more terrifying than missing kids. How people treat Jason after his brother goes missing is so genuine. Some people don’t mention it at all, while others over compensate and treat him like he’ll break. It’s hard to know what to say or do. And his parents aren’t doing much better. I’m struggling to tell you about this book without spoiling it. So many creepy and awesome things going on. I want to tell you all about them. Since I can’t, I’ll tell you what the story is like. It’s like a really good B-Movie. You know, the ones you love but don’t want to admit it. Why do they make so many of these movies? Because they scare the crap out of you, give you outrageous scenes to tear apart with your friends, and the really good ones take you back to when the atmosphere scared you as much as the monster or whatever did. Horror Business has kids making horror movies. What a great set up. The author has freedom to take the story wherever and uses flashes of past and present to keep the suspense rolling. Anything can happen, and some strange and creepy stuff does. It sneaks up on you, jumps out at you, goes quiet, and then, cue the music, the ending is unleashed. Horror Business is a horror/slasher/ zombie story, yeah there’s this zombie dog thing, he’s my favorite. I also enjoyed the movie mentions, seen a lot of them, and discovered some new ones. The book read super fast and made this horror fan very happy. I received this book for my honest review.

His parents barely acknowledge his existence, and every time he thinks he is getting somewhere with the girl, Ally, he is pushed away. Then a series of creepy and inexplicable things start happening, and Jason gets lost in a horror land. The thing I liked most about this book, was that the author does a great job of getting you within Jason's broken psyche. Both you and Jason cannot tell what's real and what's not. His mind has been so twisted since his brother's disappearance, and he has no one to support him. The characters are very hard to get a grip on. Ally can't really make up her mind about how she feels about Jason, I think because she also had feelings for his brother before he was taken. Jason is not sure if he is really sad or not about his brother's disappearance, and he won't admit any of his feelings to himself. The ending was very fast paced and also, very ambiguous. I was left feeling unsatisfied about knowing what really happened, and there was no explanation as to the true story at all. I applaud the author for trying to take on so many themes, but in the end it was just too much and felt jumbled to me.

I loved the movie Super 8 and figured this would be a bunch of kids, led by Jason and his brother, making a horror movie, but then horrible stuff (like his brother being taken) would happen in real life too. That's not really what happened. It starts out with his brother already gone, and there's not much movie making. I did like this book and recommend it to people who like horror books and are okay with R-rated language. I do wish the description would have been a little more "descriptive." The main focus of this book isn't on making the movie. It's about Jason's family falling apart after his brother and several other kids from his town are disappearing. And it is really disturbing in parts...in other words, it's a real horror! I read this book really quickly because it really does keep you at the edge of your seat. It is very scary and it combines a lot of different types of monsters: zombies, ghosts, real people who act monstrously! The author's very descriptive writing style really makes the book come to life. This is one for those of you who love all the B-grade, cult classic horror films.

Sometimes I had to wonder about Jason - if he is really all there or if he believes he is in the movie script he is creating because he seems to be oblivious to a lot of things or just doesn't seem to care. He is a great character, I love how the author intertwines all the major horror novels and movies in with the reality of the book and loved the scripts in between the storyline as well. It was such a great book - I am really hoping for more like it, that is really how much I enjoyed it! Definitely grab this and read it if you are a horror lover :) I would give this 10 stars if I could I really enjoyed it that much!
