Review - Pink Plastic Flamingos
From Big Pulp, (Horror Section)
"Pink Plastic Flamingos"
by Michael Turner
Ronnie, a small time criminal, gets by on a little B-n-E as he calls it. Especially when the caper's easy, like breaking into little old ladies' homes. He knows where his grandma keeps easy cash and figures other people her age hide things in about the same places. Plus, without any security, today's heist would be a pushover. That was Ronnie's first mistake, thinking there was no alarm system. In this short but engaging horror story, we're treated to quickly paced tale that is entertaining and creepy at the same time. You won't look at a yard full of pink flamingos the same way again.
