Tribesmen - Adam Cesare, John Skipp

Cesare's debut novella recently re-released by Deadite Press is an enjoyable homage to the cannibal exploitation flicks of the late 70s/early 80s. Following a small film crew as they make their way to a cursed Caribbean island, Cesare effectively develops his cast of characters in a speedy fashion before putting them in harm's way.

Though it ends up being quite a bit different to those cannibal films I referenced earlier, Tribesmen is an effective shocker and a hell of a debut book. I've read Cesare's latest (which was excellent) and now having read his first, I'm very much looking forward to chasing down everything he's written in between.

Originally, I was going to rate this as a 3.5 star read, but since finishing it, certain scenes have stayed with me, bumping it to a straight 4 star effort.
