About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Brandner, Gary

From Publishers Weekly:

A strong stomach and even stronger suspension of disbelief are mandatory to get through this far-fetched tale of a zombie on the rampage in rural Wisconsin. That's where California teen Kyle Brubaker is stuck for the summer, pining for the beach while helping out on his disabled Uncle Bob's farm. The fates are cruel to Kyle: his plans to seduce Marianne Avery, his absent cousin's fianc e, are rudely shattered by the vicious Gerstner brothers, who pay him back for breaking up their fight with a Gypsy boy by gang-raping Marianne and beating up Kyle. When the distraught Kyle crashes his car, Marianne, in the passenger seat, is killed. Deliverance seems at hand when the Mysterious Dorando, the Gypsy boy's grateful father, revives the girl at Kyle's request. But Marianne is merely reanimated, not brought back to life, and her post-mortem plot to get even with her assailants turns into a race against the ticking clock of her physical decay. Brandner (The Howling, etc.) knows how to pack a visceral punch with gut-churning scenes in which the putrescent Marianne takes on the revolted Gerstners. But his plotting falls apart faster than his decomposing heroine. There's no explanation (other than its shock value) why the former corn-fed girl-next-door develops an indiscriminate lust for sex after death. And it makes little sense that the rotting Marianne would pursue Kyle back to California, and coerce him into taking her back to the Midwest, complaining, "I can't move around too well by myself." Preposterous coincidences abound, amplifying the story's teen-scream-pic goofiness. (July)
