The Dead Game begins with a splash of horror introducing us to the End House, a modern day ‘House of Usher’ in the idyllic coastal town of Oasis. Five years later, new uni graduate Linda Bennett has arrived in town after losing her family. She rents out the local book and coffee shop but soon discovers things are not right in Oasis. After she receives a mysterious invitation promising an evening of intrigue and mystery to a party at the End House, her fears are confirmed as the party escalates into a night of terror.
Susanne Leist has a strong visual imagination, vividly depicting the coastal town, strange citizens and the gothic End House. The brief vampiric ‘romance’ scene with Wolf and Linda was especially convincing and suitably creepy.
