"I loved this book so much I read it in a week! It immerses you in the world it creates it’s like reading a movie script, with how it flows effortlessly and tells a story about a strong friendship gone awry. The atmosphere of this book is what kept me reading, it’s fun, slightly campy and can show the cattiness of teenage girls but with the spookiness of an exorcism. "
"3.5/5 it's starts Pretty slow I just didn't really care about the little teen drama that was going on and I didn't truly care for the characters but the 60% mark got good and picked up it was entertaining but still Sort of dragged in some parts what was cool was the vibes of the 80's setting it was pretty effortlessly done another thing I liked about the book was the ending parts it was fun I took this read as more of a horror comedy but there was some pretty gross parts in this that were horror"
"A humorous creepy novel! The story definitely keeps you on your toes and has a heartfelt ending."
"A very fun read. I picked it up because it looked like a VHS tape and I am so glad I did. It's a fun story about friendship and possessions. Sprinkled throughout were 80s references that gave the story q more authentic feel. I found this story to have the perfect mix of horror, thriller, and comedy without being too over the top. My only complaint is that there was one loose end that I felt was not resolved. Overall a 4/5 stars. "
