Friday Forgotten Book: Big Rock Beat by Greg Kihn

Following The Horror Show Kihn pick up the story a decade later. This time around director Landis Woodley and his crew is headed to the beach to film a Beach Party Rock and Roll flick, and of course things go wrong.  Just as Sci Fi/ Horror films were the cheap fast buck film genre of the 50s, for at least a portion of the 60s a beach flick was going to make money... and what would a good beach flick be without a Rock and Roll band. Take a look at Tom Hank's That Thing You Do! (well worth revisiting) for a bit of insight into that scene.... anyway,  It's been so long since I have read the book that I have largely forgotten what all happened. I have fond memories of it and  I liked it enough to read the next installment in the series.

I've found Kihn's horror pleasant, should probably try his historical fiction...
