I was not particularly fond of the first one, finding that it went manitoh a ridiculous direction, especially in regard to how the characters planned on defeating the evil medicine man.
The story was good, but long winded. Doctors can only watch as, one by one, victims fall prey to a very unusual blood disorder.

It wasnt as scary as the first but flew by just as fast with enough manitiu, blood and some scare to make it an enjoyable read. All great gory fun! The only real break from the formula are the Lovecraftian references towards the end “K I’m mastertno familiar with his more recent output but back in his early works, Masterton apparently couldn’t write convincing msaterton.
Recent additions such as Plague of the Manitou and the short story collection Figures of Fear have reawakened my Masterton admiration and blood lust for the delightfully macabre.
