Alien town take-over by particularly nasty parasitic aliens who seed and utilize the local inhabitants as hosts done in 80’s style. Extra points given for the fact that while this was a homage, complete with humor elements, Cesare kept the story line quite scary.
Cesare keeps it seemless, too. I couldn’t spot a single anachronism or anything out of place for the time. Even the story was classic deadpan humor coupled with scares in the spirit of Re-animator or Return of the Living Dead. If you are a fan of the horror of this period you will really enjoy this book.
