Ever since his mother died of cancer, Charlie Walker has never believed in either God or the supernatural. Now, as Charlie and his family move into a rundown rental house and he takes six months from work to complete his horror novel, he finds himself becoming the ultimate method writer. Although he is focused on experiencing the situations of his characters for himself, the absolute last thing he expects from his future best-seller is for it to come to life. With moving furniture, message-displaying mirrors, and claims by his children to having seen things steering around the house, Charlie finds himself lost in his own manuscript. To escape, Charlie must identify what is real by finding the strength to turn to God.
Homemade Haunting focuses on a character who is lacking faith; therefore, its main idea is to show the readers how empty one's life can be in its absence. However, Stennett seems to take his time before truly showing the pain of an atheistic life. The haunting is routine: spooky mirrors, moving furniture, and unidentifiable noises. It is when Charlie's wife Rachel becomes demon-possessed that the book really begins to pick up.
Although most of the horror scenes from Homemade Haunting are typical, Charlie himself is a very complex character. With a wicked sense of sarcasm, Charlie's personality can easily be enjoyed. Well, until the haunting begins anyway. With an unstoppable drive to finish his novel, Charlie willingly puts the lives of his family members on the line, creating a selfish image for himself.
Homemade Haunting can easily be viewed as a spooky story rather than a blood-curdling thriller, thereby leaving it highly recommended to teenagers looking for a supernatural, spiritual test. Caitlin M. Vukorpa, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
