#4 of the series and we finally hit the gore!
“Say Cheese and Die”, was a Goosebumps book based off an episode of “The Twilight Zone” called “The Most Unusual Camera”.
The plot goes like this, four kids find an old camera hidden in a man named “Spidey’s” house. Soon they discover the camera takes pictures of the future.
The plot is very interesting and this book was much more gruesome than the others (someone dies, people get injured with gory graphics, kids go missing etc). This was probably the most intense one I’ve read yet.
Once again, the ending felt forced and the explanations felt way too unbelievable. They never explain if the camera caused bad things to happen or just told that they would, but that’s up for interpretation.
It sets it up for a sequel so maybe the loose ends get tied up later.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it to anyone who enjoys scary, imaginative children’s stories and doesn’t mind the outrageous plot or grammar issues.
