This book was TERRIBLE. Twisting the original story and characters into a joke just for more profit. This should not be labeled as horror, it should be sold from the comedy section. It was disgraceful how the author used Native American mysticism as plot filler.

Still, there are a few creepy moments interspersed among all the silliness, and it's far from the worst book in the series.
