Slime AUTHOR John Halkin Free read í 8 A boy accidentally fallen overboarda child in a paddling poolan old man taking a daily swimThese are their first preyThey arrive originally in ones and twos deadly jellyfish eager to feast on human fleshAttaching themse. There was an idyllic time when I enjoyed nothing than skulking about the local video store Video Villa with my pal The Gak and searching for the most preposterous and obscure crap we could get our hands on We can call these the formative years of whatever degree of indie phase I might have gone through where nothing seemed so cool as to denounce someone s film acumen mockingly with a showstopping dis like You haven t seen Street Trashpshaw In retrospect this was probably why nobody liked me Well fck them During these excursions we d rent anything that we d never heard of the cheesier the better even purveyors of pure trash like TNT or USA wouldn t touch these films with a ten foot pole As anyone who has tried asserting their own individual tastes in this manner can attest about 95% of everything that we checked out was complete garbage The gems in the rough however a completely different story films that truly destroy all opposition and lay down the law kicking ass and remaining films I either still cherish to this day and would pay at least 20 bucks for a copy of Can you really ever go wrong with Rebel High Arena Split Dolls Street Trash or Story of Ricky An enthusiastic Hell no is the correct answer It was during this time that outcast publisher Zebra and I crossed paths For anyone out there who has ever partaken in the luxury of killing off a pack of smokes and a twelve pack while reading completely disposable literary trash in the vein of the Zebra releases or watching some obscure for good reason film by AIP Studios well my friend get your ass to com and throw Slime at the top of your wish list and pray someone is selling a used copy This is not to say that Slime is awesome That is certainly not the case One look at the cover and you know you re dealing with something scraped grudgingly from the bottom of the barrel over at Guild Press Who the hell has heard of Guild Press I can tell you exactly how the copy I own ended up at the local resale shop however some bumbling nimrod like myself saw this fantastic cover and read the tagline Turn on the faucetand die of terror and was instantly sold Hell the cover is so unbelievably cheesy I doubt they took the time to read that juicy sales slogan There isn t even any acknowledgement as to who created this timeless piece of art on the cover it was probably drawn late at night in the height of a toluene binge by the same Guild Press employee that decided to make the first three pages practically identical blank with only the title Slime in that slimydripping looking font from the cover Slime doesn t deliver and it doesn t need to The story has almost noting to do with slime and there is exactly one reference to anything coming out of a faucet So what the hell can it possibly be about Check it killer jellyfish Not just fatal through toxins injected via tentacles but attacking in packs with a herd hunting mentality communicating and aggressively stalking prey You really can t go wrong especially if you use the word jellyfishitish That s right To be like jellyfish hit Jellyfishitish As far as I know I created this word about ten years ago and use it sparingly lest it become public knowledge and transform into the next great hip buzzword You like Street Trash you own some Zebra books you also claim to have spawned brilliance like jellyfishitish hit me up we ll trade numbers and hang the hell out So a few flimsy and doomed characters are introduced as fodder to present the crisis at hand a bunch of jobbers getting iced by the jellyfish who employ a combination attack of paralyzing their prey and then creeping over their face and devouring it The hero of the story comes out of the woodwork Tim Ewing a thinly veiled representation of the author and the man he aspires to be Tim is allegedly a great actor able to play any role in any work ever written but ends up selling out to play a globe trotting action hero on some crappy television show Author John Halkin probably spent his years longing to pen the next work of lasting and unforgettable literature to be lauded through the ages and ended up with the disgrace of having his name emblazoned on a trashy paperback relegated to 50 cent bins at resale shops in Niles Illinois Very similar in nature selling short of the great dream to become a magnate of drivel differing only in their levels of success and acclaim the author receiving none and his dreamy self image having it heaped on by the dump truckload also Tim Ewing the embattled actor who plays a pivotal role in thwarting the marine menace also lays the wood to almost every female in the story and I assume Halkin spends many lonely nights weeping into his cold pillows after dropping some uaaludes So after shooting the newest groundbreaking episode of his tv show on the Welch coast the book takes place entirely in something called Great Britain an extra in the scene that sucker punched Mr Ewing earlier ends up the next victim of a rogue jellyfish and while saving this guy s ass Tim also sustains a grievous wound by tentacle In the confusing aftermath the other central characters are introduced Jane a tease and a bitch who holds a job as a tabloid reporter getting the scoop on our lovable hero who happens to have a marine biologist sister with a hard on for jellyfish Jacui the new director of the tv show who the cast and crew have yet to warm up to Dorothea the director s assistant who ends up going to bed with Ewing in perhaps the most random and spontaneous few pages which some editor obviously missed and Sue the other half in Tim s tumultuous marriage who has been preparing to drop the bomb that she s filing for divorce while shacked up with another man At first the increasing number of jellyfish attacks are treated as silly little items in the media but soon it becomes obvious that this there s no cessation in the trend and soon whole schools of the jellyfish are awash on the shores coordinating attacks suckering people attacking entire boat crews going totally apeshit Seeing as Tim has firsthand knowledge of these hostile creatures and he s already a media star in some supposed realm called the UK he becomes the poster child for the network s coverage with Jacui resuming her previous role as a director of documentaries A few one off icings occur sporadically but the story stays the course leading to the ultimate confrontation The Army Vs The Jellyfish Horde Suish the Fish The fact that the British army actually has difficulties in suppressing an assault from barely sentient globs of auatic hit helps explain how a fledgling nation like the US won its independence from such practiced bunglers In all honesty the payoffs are few the sex scenes hinge entirely on women having finely sculpted breasts the death by jellyfish seuences are routine and unmoving and the annoyance of spellings such as colour and tyres is enough to make one scream but while the book may not be anything I m looking for in a gold leaf edition it is not jellyfishitish Not by a longshot

Slime AUTHOR John Halkin Free read í 8 Mears of luminescant slimeBut the final horror starts when they begin to breed For now their young appear in reservoirs and storage tanksslipping through drainpipes and water taps And humankind faces ghoulish extinction. It is painful to rate one of the well known examples of the 80s horror paperback boom as subpar but unfortunately this one falls short on several critical levels I grew up during the heyday of books like these that I collected as early as age 12 from my local B Dalton at the shopping mall titles that than any TV show or film made me a fan of horror and scifi today So I do have a soft spot for books and authors of this era What made them intriguing was how translatable they were to the mind s eye invoking vivid images as easily as a comic book or movie by repackaging largely familiar tropes into new and exciting adventures or styles often with a sociopolitical thread very pertinent for the times As such Slime takes the familiar animals amok and armageddon themes and then applies them to a rather unusual antagonist the jellyfish Actually this could have had a lot of potential for excellent scares If you have ever experienced a jellyfish sting or accidentally swam into a school of these things you know just how horrific they can be But opportunities are missedVery little of the story takes place on or in the water robbing the jellyfish of their natural habitat where they pose the most threat Instead they start invading the land and though these jellyfish are supposedly a new breed that has musculature allowing for purposeful movements they are still portrayed as barely mobile blobs So how can they pose any kind of palpable threat to sustain suspense and terror The author s solution is to make all of his human characters as stupid and clumsy as possible and his plot full of ridiculously convenient contrivances in order for any jellyfish to get the upper hand on a victim People stumble and fall right on top of them for no reason or dumbly watch as a jellyfish slowly wraps itself around their foot instead of running away or decide randomly to take a dip in freezing water where there just so happens to be a school of sentient jellyfish waiting for a uick meal It gets so ridiculous that the book could have been an effective comedic parody of the horror genre but alas this is no joke The book takes itself very seriouslyThe main character is magically present during most of the pivotal moments a case where forcing your character to be in the right place at always the right time makes your already unbelievable story insulting to the reader who is otherwise willing to suspend a bit of disbelief for the sake of good fantasy entertainment Our hero is a B list television actor who gets stung by a jellyfish while filming his Remington Steele knockoff on location and somehow this makes him some kind of expert on the jellyfish epidemic so that even the army allows him to accompany them on a anti jellyfish mission that would be dangerous for well trained soldiers It was annoying when they dragged Matthew Broderick s character around in Godzilla it is annoying here and it is an automatic demerit for any of the umpteen horror and scifi stories that do this kind of thing When he is not being sought after for his jellyfish prowess he spends his time generally being a creep and asking numerous women to sleep with him while simultaneously whining that his wife is being unfaithful By far the best character in the whole story is his neurotic but spunky lesbian director Jacui who is the only character afforded a wide range of emotions a little character development a smidge of humor and a moment of true heroism Yet the author degrades her by having her inexplicably seduce and sleep with the main slime of this story the so called hero Wooden and unlikable characters lazy and silly plot contrivances and a not very scary batch of monsters makes this unashamed cash in on the animals on the loose sub genre an absolute shame in which to invest your time There are many better examples of this classic era of horror fiction
