A 'haunted house' ride takes on added realism when a real
body turns up inside. However, the apparent suicide soon becomes
a homicide investigation for the laser-sharp minds of the
CSI team, who find their resources stretched latex thin when
they also have to contend with a wave of increasingly violent
before I start can I just state, for the record, that whoever
wrote the above synopsis (which appears on the back of this
collection) obviously didn't read this graphic novel, never
talked to anyone who was involved with it, or bother to get
their description checked by anyone who was involved with
it. Firstly, there is no 'haunted house' ride, it's a youth
theatre style group where the kids put on an elaborate show
that contains a whole series of horrific scenes - designed
to shock kids into keeping away from drugs, alcohol and other
dangerous areas that teenagers like to experiment with.
secondly, there is never a question of suicide. It just appears
to be a tragic accident where one of the performers kills
another when his gun, filled with blanks, does the same damage
as a gun loaded with live ammunition would do.
that I've got that little moan out of the way, Demon House
is the third CSI collection to be released by Titan
Publishing. Sadly the likenesses of the cast are still very
much miss and near miss, but to be quite honest that isn't
so much of an issue with this volume. This time around the
CSI team play much more of a back seat. It is the forensic
evidence that is the star of this collection and it works
really well too.
point worth making is that, on the whole (there are a few
very noticeable exceptions though) the dialogue is very believable
and you can almost close your eyes and hear your favourite
CSI characters speaking the lines.
a bad addition to the stable, and certainly one that CSI fans
