Scott Spencer’s pseudonymous foray into the horror genre starts like a typical novel about marriage. The Twisdens, a wealthy Manhattan couple, desperately want kids. After a battery of expensive fertility treatments, they resort to a highly suspect procedure that results in twins. The side effects are gruesome: The once presentable Twisdens sprout fur and develop bloodlust — for their own children. Breed is being touted as a modern-day Rosemary’s Baby, but Spencer — author of Endless Love and Waking the Dead — delivers the camp better than he does the scares. B
HIGH CAMP Praised as a modern-day Rosemary's Baby, this novel about blood-thirsty parents is less scary than advertised
