Jack and Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water,
The well was cursed,
they fell headfirst,
to vile and gruesome slaughter.

Steven Rhodes, My Little Occult Book Club

My Rating: ★★★★★

My Review: I picked this up because it reminded me of My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix. The two books would look very well on a shelf together or make a very nice gift packaged together. The 80’s nostalgia (with a bit of 70’s in this book) mixed with occult and horror themes makes for a very entertaining book. It’s styled on those old catalogues of books for kids with some puzzles and activities (join the dots on Satan, anyone?), short descriptions on some of the books and order forms for occult items such as a cursed video tape. It’s mainly a collection of very funny horror-parody children’s book covers. I would love to have some of them as posters for my office especially the “Sleep is my God” one.

The illustrations are wonderful and the horror/occult theme is entertaining throughout never passing into grotesqueness.
