Convince us to read the book: WOW!  This book was amazing.  It was also really scary.  Actually, it wasn't scary, it was gory. Like, super gory.  Six people died in this book.  They all died horrific deaths.  For example, two people get their hands cut off, 2 people break their necks, one person gets electrocuted, and one person dies in a microwave (just don't ask).
Sixteen year old Claire is an aspiring actress. She gets a job from her dad, who owns a film studio.  They are remaking a movie that had gone... badly in the 1960's.
This book is really confusing to try to explain, but the book itself makes sense.

Memorable or Forgettable: This was a great book because it was really scary and yet really interesting.
Cover:  I didn't think the cover worked with the book.
Age Range: 12 through 17
Quality:  4Q Better than most
Popularity:  4P Broad general teen appeal
Additional Comments: WARNING: REALLY SCARY!!!
Annotation:  Claire is an aspiring actress who finally gets a part in a movie her dad is directing.  However, someone is killing off the actors and actresses.
