Some thoughts on the second issue of horror Peek-A-Boo and the fist issue of Volume 4 of Grimm Tales Of Terror
A mother seeking solace with her three teenage children after a recent tragedy signs up for a group hiking and camping tour. But navigating the difficult terrain is the least of the hikers’ worries as the group soon finds they’re being stalked by unseen predators.
This issue is even more frantic than the last. The group are split up, and some are dead! But we do get a lot more into the personalities of the survivors. It seems like some have a plan, and some have given up hope. I’m sure for those who survive, it will be a learning experience!
I like the way the action is set out – it really works in the claustrophobic manner, all through the valleys and rocks. All in the half light!
This is building up nicely as the group get (mostly) back together, I can see some arguments over what they do next, and some more mistakes are going to be made…..
Grimm Tales Of Terror Vol.4 #1
From shocking twists on classic literature to brand new takes on modern day urban legends, this terror-filled series re-imagines the creepy stories you know and love for a new generation of readers. After the arrival of a new teacher and student to their school, three teenagers find out that some urban legends are better left unexplored, and could be deadlier than they could ever imagine. The events of this issue tie directly into the upcoming feature film.
This new start for Grimm Tales of Terror makes us suspicious from the get-go. A couple of lines, and then we are right into the ghost stories. I can imagine this on a screen, with some good jump-scares and a nice twist. I’ll be interested in seeing the movie and how this links up to it, I’m also wondering if this is going to be a running theme throughout the volume, or just this issue?.
Nevertheless, I like the build to this and the ‘vengeance’ on the three boys.
