Meat Camp

Dear FTC (wo)Man: Scott Nicholson sent me this book for an honest review.  He is one of my favorite authors so that wasn’t a hard request to accept. 🙂 There are Amazon affiliate links in this post.

Bloodthirsty mutants go on a rampage at a camp for troubled teens after an infection spreads. Adapted from Scott Nicholson’s original horror screenplay.


In a desperate attempt to save their land from tax foreclosure, Delphus Fraley and his daughter open a camp for at-risk kids, with the goal of building character through experience in the Appalachian Mountain outdoors.
But a strange infection contaminating the camp’s mess hall soon triggers a violent rampage. As the isolated camp turns into a bloodbath, camp counselor Jenny Usher first fights to save the children, and then finds she must fight to save herself.
Because this infection doesn’t just kill, it brings the dead back to life…

Oh Scott, Scott, Scott, you always make me want to pull the covers over my head as I’m listening for things that go bump in the night.  Doesn’t help that this time the dogs started going crazy while I was reading and there was no one at the door.

I never like to do spoilers so I am going to try to do this review without them, that’s tough cuz there is a lot of and this happened and this happened, I was so grossed out when I found out this character was cooking this, and OMG when this person ate this…. yeah, you got the point.

This book is filled with scary if you’re scared of flesh eating zombies that never die. The description in here was almost too much for my stomach to handle. Almost.  I kept going. The visuals were painted nice and clearly. I love a good freaky could it actually happen scare (come on, we all have heard about the “zombies” laced on bath salts or whatever it was, it could happen, I think, maybe, who knows!) me type of book. 

I think the cook was my favorite character. 

He was humorous – in a freaky sort of way.

There are so many characters in this book that are woven together in an intricate way that makes sense and is needed in this type of book. Imagine a slasher film, you need a lot of disposable (yet they weren’t really disposable) characters for the slasher to eat kill.

Kind of twisted I know, but this book was fun, in a way that only zombie books can be fun. 

Did it knock the red church (review here) off my list of favorite books by Scott?

No.  That’s still my favorite. You have to have read that book to understand why nothing has yet knocked it off the top of my freaky book list yet.  Find The Red Church on Amazon here .

It did however stick J.T. Warren on my list of authors I need to check out. He did an awesome job with this.

It was just a really awesome, scary, make me think twice about going camping story. Not that I ever went camping before but I am sending my 2 oldest kids off to camp this summer.  Thinking twice about that now. 🙂

I definitely wouldn’t recommend reading this book while eating, which I attempted to do when I was in the middle of the book.  I never did finish my supper that night.  However, I would recommend for a night when you feel like wondering about every creak and moan in your house.

Scott and J.T. will leaving you wondering if that infection could possibly break out near you.
