Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Horror movie journalist Cesare (Tribesmen) has crafted the literary equivalent of the ’80s schlock horror flicks his protagonists love so much. In 1988, Billy Rile and Tom Mathers are best friends about to be torn apart by high school graduation and differing expectations; Billy plans to go to college, which his parents will pay for, while Tom’s best-case future is working in his uncle’s liquor store. The only thing holding them together is their shared love of cheap horror films. When their Long Island hometown is targeted for takeover by mysterious xenomorphlike creatures, they and Rachel Krieger, the sister of one of the first victims, use their knowledge of clichéd horror tropes to fight back. While Cesare nods to deeper ideas about body horror and class conflict, the plot careens along from set piece to set piece without paying much attention to its underpinnings. (Jan.)
From the Publisher
“The best new writer I've read in years."
—Nate Kenyon, author of Bloodstone

Tribesmen is a gory and clever homage to those Italian cannibal flicks that we all love so dearly, but without the real-life animal cruelty! Highly recommended.”
—Jeff Strand, author of Pressure

"Sometimes everything goes wrong, in the best possible way. Think Snuff and Cannibal Holocaust meeting at a midnight movie. And then give one of them a camera, the other a knife."—Stephen Graham Jones, author of The Ones That Got Away, on Tribesmen

    i have to say i loved this book

    video night takes place in the 80's and i loved it..if hollywood ever gets off there lazy asses and actually make better movies i think they should make this one into a film...it has a mix of sci-fi horror and comedy...i would recoment this to anyone who loves those to....

    i will tell you that it has aliens that take over the world and there only weakness and the cold...it did remind me a little of alien meets paristie alien...but i will say no more and so you know the gore is up there in it...

    enjoy the book like i did and have a nice day
