As a huge fan of Richard Laymon I found this final book of the "Beast House" books very disappointing indeed and I really didnt want it to be that way.
The other books were fantastic but this lacked a good story line. Its basic story is about Mark and Alison the two main characters and virtually the only two characters in the book. Mark has to earn a date with Alison by getting her into the Beast House after hours. It has a very slow start and sadly doesn't get much better. Unless you are like me a serious Laymon fan and whatever happens you will buy the book regardless for your collection then I wouldnt really say this is a fantastic read. Its very slow and I felt that by the time I had got to the end of the book I hadnt really read a horror story at all. At least not one of Richard's books.

I feel very sad at having to report that this book was not worth the money I paid for it. It does not continue with the Beast House story, none of the original characters are involved and you're still left wondering what happened after 'The Midnight Tour'. It's a very, very short story, and it's really not worth buying unless you're like me and will buy all of Richard Laymon's books anyway!

I bought this book after reading other reviews. Yes,it's short,it doesn't continue the story from Midnight tour,but if like me you are a big beast fan,you have to get it! I read the book in one afternoon "at work",but even though it is short it still has that "beast" suspence & action.Not a suitable first Laymon book to read, I bought it to truely complete my beast collection.

By M. Dowden HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 Jan. 2015
Format: Paperback
This short novel is the last part of the Beast House books, and to be honest it isn’t really that full of horror. Although Richard Laymon did write some good books this one reads more like a teen boy’s fantasy a lot of the time, as he imagines nubile women taking off their clothes.

The story starts when Mark, who would really like to go with Alison, actually gets the chance. There is a catch though, Mark must be able to get her into Beast House after dark, and then they can have their date. So in fact most of this story is concerned with Mark managing to sneak into the building and then trying to stay hidden until the place has closed.

What you feel like once you have read this is that you haven’t really read a horror tale, but an erotic novel, as there is so much thoughts of nudity, and then some sex. So if you are a teen boy you will probably lap this up, but for us who are older and looking for something scary and full of suspense and tension, this fails to deliver.

Although a very short novel, friday night in beast house is everything you would want from a laymon novel blood, guts, gore and horny teenagers. Make no mistake about it laymon has written yet another brilliant piece of horror here, and for people who know his work will not be disapointed. This does not follow on from midnight tour ( third book in beast house series) but is still a worthy addition to the beast house chronicles. If you are new to Richards work i would start with earlyier novels such as funland or island but this latest offering in my view is just another reason why this author was the best horror writer ever to walk the earth! R.I.P Richard you are sorely missed!

Although short, at only 160 pages, I found this book very enjoyable. It does not continue the story of the past Beast House books, but even so as a stand alone book it captures what Laymon did best. As a hardcore fan you will love it, but if you are buying Laymon for the first time you may be better of going for another title.

Thought this was going to be another classic Beast House novel, instead it appears to be a butchered attempt by the publisher to cash in on Laymon's name, as a previous reviewer also pointed out. There were major hints at activity in the Kutch house which I was looking forward to, but it turned out to be a 153 page rape fantasy totally devoid of the Laymon touch. The fans who argue for the book do so solely out of love for an author who sadly isn't with us any more. As it stands there's no point to this book, if you can call it that, and I'm sorely disappointed in its publishing. I'd rather have seen the first 3/4 published online leaving it up to fans to fill in the rest, perhaps in some form of fanfic competition. Avoid this chapter in the Beast House saga at all costs, it serves no purpose to the overall story and is only fit to line the coffers of the bastards who published it. Shame on them.

Such a famous author (with praises from King) is a must read for any horror fan! That was my thought as I started this book... only to discover an empty and juvenile plot, with no worthy characters and totally devoid of suspense or horror.

Wait! There is horror after all... an horrific and senseless story that any horror fan should avoid (especially if you're older than 12). Wont be reading Laymon anytime soon.
