A Midsummer NIght's Scream - R.L. Stine

Summary from Goodreads:

Oh, what fools these actors be!

It was a horror movie that turned into real horror—three young actors lost their lives while the camera rolled. Production stopped, and people claimed that the movie was cursed.

Sixty years later, new actors are venturing onto the haunted set. In a desperate attempt to revive their failing studio, Claire’s dad has green-lit a remake of Mayhem Manor—and Claire and her friends are dying to be involved.

At first, Claire laughs at Jake’s talk of ghosts and curses. He’s been too busy crushing on her best friend Delia to notice that she’s practically been throwing herself at him. What does he know? And anyway, this is her big chance to be a star!

When shooting starts, though, the set is plagued by a series of horrible accidents. Could history be repeating itself?

I love R.L. Stine's books so I had high hopes going into A Midsummer Night's Scream! Unfortunately my expectations were not met... Stine really had the chance to make this one so scary for the teens! I think there was room for him to up it a notch and really go with this great idea he had! I mean points alone for the storyline! But even his Goosebump stories are scarier then this book! Obviously I will not hold this one against him, though.

Rating: 5/10
