"Crucifax" is a 1980's Pied Piper story.
I've read a few 1980's horror novels recently and have cringed slightly at how outdated a couple of them have been. "Crucifax", though, holds up well with a theme that is still relevant. Granted, there are still a few references that didn't survive Father Time and the spiked mullet hair-style sported by the antagonist wouldn't pass muster today, those aside, the novel works.
