Rated R (Kill Team One #1) 08, Jan

RATED R by Mike Leon is exactly that. It is an R-rated novel which is a dedication to all the R-rated movies of the 1980s from horror movie exploitation films starring buxom teenagers stalked by serial killers to the kind of big exploding things action movies that had people named "Arnold" in the cast list. The glorious cheese factor of the 80s coats virtually every page of the novel and it is acknowledged by the author to have been partially inspired by Hack/Slash (one of my favorite indie comics).
