The Raising by J. E. Taylor

There comes a point in every really good bad horror film when you find yourself yelling at the TV, ‘Don’t do THAT, are you crazy?!?”  The Raising is that kind of really good bad horror film.  I didn’t think I was going to like it at all, but the author took an unbelievable and campy concept (Gypsy curse?  Please.) and turned it into a Grade-A gem of a horror story.

Dr. Holly Robbins has lost the love of her life, Jacob.  She’s worked in the ER for far too long not to know that gone is gone forever, and everyone knows nothing can bring back the dead.  But even the most clinical doctor has her moment of weakness when desperation and grief tangle with hope and even the most unlikely of possibilities becomes something you’d take time off of work to try.

If you like dark romance and campy horrors, gypsy curses and bringing the dearly depart back from the grave for one last night of love, I dare you not to like this story.  If Pet Cemetery and Practical Magic had a love child, this is what it would read like. 5 Stars
