Review: UNDER THE BED (Anthology)

5 authors, 5 chilling tales.

What could be “under the bed?” Socks, shoes, and dust bunnies?  No, something much darker lies beneath, according to these stories. In “House of the Unholy Dead,” two burglars attempt to rob a family of pale, gangly beings—beings with much more sinister intentions than they bargained for.

“Daniel’s Game” is all about a grieving mother who tries to communicate with her dead son, but the reply she gets from the other side is not what she had hoped for.  

Most of these were pretty good, but there were some that weren’t. For instance, “Shout at the Devil” had “spooky” written all over it, but, unfortunately, what was actually written was slow and daunting. I liked the concept of the creepy, haunted house, but I just felt like I was waiting around for the devil to make his appearance.

Well-written for the most part, these stories are a quick, easy fix for the horror fans.

My rating: 3.5 stars
