The lead story, a supernatural serial killer tale that (mostly) left a lot of gaps for the reader to fill in barey held my attention .. I would have given it 2 stars. But the bonus essay about the history of "Scooby Do" and its influence on horror cinema was much more interesting. I'd give that 4 stars.
