As Easter arrives, our thoughts turn to, well, chocolate eggs the size of an ostrich’s, filled with yet more chocolate, mostly. But of course, Easter is actually about more serious things. Like really long, old films.
And of course the crucifixion and resurrection of the saviour of man. The events leading up to, and the bloody aftermath of, being the subject of my (co-authored) debut novel.I Know What You Did Last Supper is a mash up … except it isn’t. Not really. Don’t get me wrong; the concept is clearly a mash up: The story of Judas meets nineties slasher flick. But this isn’t what happened on the silver screen – or in the Bible. In fact, it’s what didn’t happen in the Bible.
Which is to say that the Biblical story of Judas is pretty sketchy. There’s a hell of a lot of detail skipped, numerous points open to interpretation – a lot of holes in it. Holes that the introduction of a shadowy murderous stalker fills in quite miraculously, if you’ll pardon the turn of phrase.
So yes, I Know What You Did Last Supper is a mash up on the surface, but at heart it’s a fresh and original story that happens to fill in a lot of Biblical blanks. You could even say this is what really happened to Judas. It’s possible. I wouldn’t actually claim that, of course, but… It all fits, in theory. I promise you that.
And I promise you some cracking Easter revelations if you pick up the page-turner of a blood-soaked thriller novel this weekend.
