A collection of short horror stories you can rip through in hours, but will haunt you for days.
Demons that draw on a family’s misery. The violent deaths of clients from hell. Serial killers and cursed cures that don’t turn out how you’d expect. Stefan Taylor builds dark worlds full of classic tension and fear. Simon J Green weaves visually rich tales of carnage and humour. Together, they bring you previously published work alongside original stories designed to scare, shock, and make you feel sick.
My review: First off: What an incredibly sick cover! Talk about gruesome! Even though it’s a well-done illustration, it’s hard for me to look at it. It’s just too sick.
Fortunately, the stories didn’t make me as queasy. In this collection, we have a ghost desperately trying to be heard, a crab infestation, and a mother’s home with an eerie feeling.
Stories are dark, sinister, and just enough to make you cringe. Best thing about them is that they’re not gory, not what the cover leads you to believe. For the most part, stories were well-versed and insightful; however, some were obviously better than others.
My rating: 3 stars
