It's the scariest movie ever—and they're stuck in it! An adventure thriller for young film fans.
Kip's dad owns the Paramount, an old-fashioned cinema that is struggling to survive. But when the new projectionist Mr. Lazarus arrives—very old, and a bit magical—he sets up his equipment and suddenly the images seem brighter and sharper, and business improves drastically. But one day Kip and his friend are watching Terror Island—a scary adventure set on an island full of saber-toothed tigers and hungry cavemen—when Kip's little sister Rose appears on screen! Kip runs up to the projection room and confronts Mr. Lazarus, who demonstrates the Lazarus Enigma: a device that can project things, and people, into the world of the movie itself. When you're in the film, everything is real. Real bullets, real swords, real monsters. But beware—if you don't get out by the time the closing credits roll, you'll be trapped in the film forever! Can Kip get to Rose before the saber-toothed tigers? And if he can, how is he going to get back?
