User Summary: You run low on gas and decide to find someplace to make a phone call. Sadly for you, the place you ultimately get stuck with is a rather sinister-looking mansion....
Demian's Thoughts: All the monster movie cliches you can think of manage to pop up in here, but the ultimate result is considerably more charming than it could be. This actually is one of the better books in the series.

Fireguard's Thoughts: Although somewhat cliched (how many times can you put Dracula, Igor, and Frankenstein's monster in a creepy old house and expect it to have an effect?), the book isn't badly written and is fun for something of its length. It's at just about the right point to chill the target age group, yet not give them nightmares like Invasion of the Black Slime.
