ZINE REVIEW: THE CONVENT GROVE INCIDENT BY MEGAN

spelps.tumblr.com

I got this zine directly from Megan at San Jose Zine Con and have been re-reading it ever since. I was kind of predisposed to liking iit because it takes place in the Santa Cruz Mountain (a place close to my heart) in the year my mom was born (1957). 

The Convent Grove Incident is ”…inspired by Ghost Towns of the Santa Cruz Mountains by John V. Young, “Kentucky Route Zero”, and “Mad Men”.”

It’s the story of a thief and con-man named Jack disguised as a salesman and the creepy, supernatural mess he accidentally walks into after stopping for directions at a house in the Santa Cruz mountains on a dark and stormy night.

The house is owned by two sisters who talk him into staying for dinner and eventually into spending the night on account of the storm causing the nearby bridge to flood and the roads to be covered in mudslides. During dinner, and after Jack steals a necklace and some cash from one of the bedrooms, the sisters tell him about the history of the land they live on: There really was a convent in Convent Grove, until it was hit by a meteor, and after that, people started disappearing. The only one who came back, came back “different”.

Jack doesn’t seems too worried about the old legend. It’s only after he turns out the light that the sisters reveal their true motives, and true identities.

I choose not to think it’s a coincidence I’m writing this zine review on the same night I’m listening to cassette re-issues of horror and suspense radio shows from the 1950′s. I got a handful of them for 25 cents yesterday and they were too warped to listen to all the way through. I was able to find them online, though. 

The 50′s were totally creepy, man. And this zine is totally fun to read.

Nothing is as it seems in Convent Grove.
