Rue Rosco 13 | Critical Book Review

I may not be a ghost hunter, but Rue Rosco 13 by Eddie Russell had me questioning the boundaries of reality. Toni Woodruff delves into the eerie world of this indie horror novella, where bizarre occurrences and occult mysteries unfold.

A Night of Whiskey and Paranormal Perplexities

As the tale unravels late into the night, our protagonist, Eric, wakes up with fingers of whiskey, perhaps needing the liquid courage to comprehend the unsettling revelations from his cousin Bernie. Strange happenings at Bernie’s home lead them down a path of occult exploration, with a quest to understand and eradicate the ghost haunting Bernie’s mother.

A Dark Comedy of Possession

Rue Rosco 13 captivates with its horror elements, featuring blood-curdling screams, vivid and unimaginable imagery, and a touch of humor. It weaves a dark comedy where characters navigate through the wild and inexplicable, leaving readers both entertained and unnerved. The narrative successfully prompts a double-take in the real world, making one ponder the thin line between the supernatural and everyday life.

Familiar Territory with Room for Surprise

While the novella stays true to its genre and maintains a commendable tonal balance, there is a sense of déjà vu for readers well-versed in possession stories. Rue Rosco 13, while solid in its execution, doesn’t venture far from the expected narrative beats. The brevity of the tale leaves room for a quick dip into the supernatural without a deep immersion, and a few shock value moments miss their mark.

Short and Strange, but Not Without Quirks

For those seeking a brief and peculiar journey into the paranormal, Rue Rosco 13 offers a satisfying experience. The inclusion of clergymen armed with ghost-extraction tools adds a unique flavor to the story. However, the novella falls short in delivering unexpected twists, making it an engaging but somewhat predictable exploration of the occult.

In conclusion, Rue Rosco 13 is a compelling yet somewhat familiar addition to the realm of possession narratives, providing an entertaining escapade into the unknown.
