In R.L. Stine's A Midsummer Night's Scream, the Master of Horror takes on the Master of Theatre! Oh, what fools these actors be! It was a horror movie that turned into real horror--three young actors lost their lives while the camera rolled.

He’s been too busy crushing on her best friend Delia to notice that she’s practically been throwing herself at him. What does he know? And anyway, this is her big chance to be a star!When shooting starts, though, the set is plagued by a series of horrible accidents—could history be repeating itself?
