Experiment in Terror by Karina Halle (series review)
Name of series: Experiment in Terror Author: Karina Halle Number of books: 10 parts, 7 have been published
In a large, flaky nutshell, the Experiment in Terror Series is aneight-partsci-fi/fantasy/horror series that revolves around a pair of ghost hunters. Well, aspiring ghost hunters, anyway. After filming a creepy experience in her uncle’s dilapidated lighthouse, 22-year old Perry Palomino becomes a YouTube and internet star overnight. She attracts the attention of Dex Foray, a producer and cameraman for a site that specializes in various webisodes, who convinces her to be a host for a low-budget ghost hunting series. The only problem is, neither Perry or Dex are entirely “with it” — I mean, they see ghosts, after all. And when the duo isn’t wrestling with their very notion of reality, they’re grappling with a working relationship that’s deep-cut with sexual tension. As the series moves on, leading Perry and Dex to new locales and supernatural situations, their lives become more and more intertwined, where they discover that ghosts aren’t the only things that can haunt them.
(It says 8 parts in the summary on the website but when I checked there were supposed to be 10)
I feel this crazy need to watch Ghost hunting shows. I used to dislike them because they scared me even when I kept on telling myself how lame they are. But after reading the first two books I felt this crazy urge to watch every goddamn Ghost hunting show there is. I watched 2 episodes of two different ghost hunting shows. I hated them both. All the time i was watching them I kept on thinking how bad they were and how the “ghost hunters” could never compare to Dex and Perry. It really sucks. I mean I wasn’t even goddamn scared. I kept on trying to be scared or at least enjoy the shows but you know I kept on thinking how fake they were. After that I searched Experiment in Terror on google to see if somehow magically there WAS infact a ghosthunting show by that name. No such luck. Damn you Karina. Why are you so GOOD? YOU KNOW I AM NOT EVEN A FAN OF HORROR. Yet here you have me under your spell.
