Shara and Diego are having a nice date night on the beach, drinking wine, and talking about their lives when they hear a startling cry nearby. Unfortunately, they don’t know that they are in a horror story and that what awaits them are a trio of mad scientists who collect very specific, very valuable things.

R.L. Stine, the king of middle grade and young adult horror, turns his attention to the adult audience with Stuff of Nightmares. The title is apropos considering what Jordan and Isaac Cameron and their cohort Stella have been up to in their secluded beach home. It’s a good start for the new series, and definitely not one for the kiddies.
