Maggie’s Grave (Paranormal Witch Horror)

Maggie’s Grave (Paranormal Witch Horror)

  David Sodergren has once again blessed my Kindle with a brilliant folk horror tale. I loved The Haar, but I absolutely adored Maggie’s Grave. In the nearly deserted town Auchenmullan, with just 47 residents remaining, a dark tale lays dormant. Towards the top of a mountain, a singular grave lies. “MAGGIE WALL BURIED HERE […]

Dead Inside (Iconoclastic Horrotica)

Dead Inside (Iconoclastic Horrotica)

  This read is one I often see people who are just dipping their toe into extreme horror tend to pick up. I think the slower pace helps them to get into the groove, let’s them understand the kind of thing they may see, and that dead people fucking and baby eating is the tip […]

Ensuring Your Place in Hell 2 (It Just Gets Worse Extreme Splatter Horror)

Ensuring Your Place in Hell 2 (It Just Gets Worse Extreme Splatter Horror)

  Oh Jesus Christ. Just oh God. I called to the Lord so many times reading this and I’m not even religious. I managed to give some summaries of the first collection, talking about which was the best (can you really used best when it’s violently gross?) but this time…I just can’t. If you have any […]

Spaghetti (Hideous Werewolf Cannibal Literature)

Spaghetti (Hideous Werewolf Cannibal Literature)

  When the lives of six people combine in the most random and fleeting ways, all separately and short, one huge issue brings them together. By together I mean in the loosest of senses. After meeting each other the first time none of them ever really meet again. But the curse of the werewolf leaves […]

The Haar (Sentimental Amorphous Beast Horror)

The Haar (Sentimental Amorphous Beast Horror)

  I’ve been trying to get more into horror with a bit more feeling behind it. Whilst I enjoy the relentless gore that many of the books I read offer, sometimes they lack any sort of real story or emotion, other than just people’s guts being forcibly ripped out. The Haar is a story about […]

Mouth (Living Hole in the Ground Horror)

Mouth (Living Hole in the Ground Horror)

  Did I ever think I’d read a monster story, about a hole in the ground, with layers of teeth that had different purposes, a mind of its own, and could communicate with his people by rumbling the ground? If you’d have asked me before I read this, the answer would’ve been most definitely not. […]

Silent Night, Deadly Night (Childhood Ruined Again by Cheap Transgressiveness)

Silent Night, Deadly Night (Childhood Ruined Again by Cheap Transgressiveness)

  Something is awful rotten in Denmark, folks. Apparently, Stop The Killer Press (a subsidiary of the Stop The Killer board game company) has gone into the business of publishing limited edition novelizations of classic slasher films such as My Bloody Valentine and Happy Birthday to Me. Normally I would have no interest in such chicanery, […]

Psychic Teenage Bloodbath II (Sexy Insanity Psychic Ultra-Violence)

Psychic Teenage Bloodbath II (Sexy Insanity Psychic Ultra-Violence)

  What another wild ride from Carl John Lee. A 10-year gap between the first book and this one, Charlie finds herself with Lynette, although it just…isn’t her. Susan, her ex-psychic girlfriend, who caused a massacre years before, now occupies the mind of Lynette. And she makes no effort to hide it anymore. Still bitter […]

Stay Out of the Tub!! (OMG It’s a HAUNTED TUB Splatterpunk Horror)

Stay Out of the Tub!! (OMG It’s a HAUNTED TUB Splatterpunk Horror)

  This will be a strange review. It will sound conflicting and possibly like I have no idea why I’m talking about it. Bear with me. I want to start out by saying, I didn’t actually like this book. And I couldn’t explain or articulate why. I just didn’t vibe with it much. So now […]

The Schlimazel of Sebreim (Jewish Vampire Gothic Horror Comedy Insanity)

The Schlimazel of Sebreim (Jewish Vampire Gothic Horror Comedy Insanity)

  So, I was looking for a quick vampire read for students this J-Term for a project (yeah I teach, remember), and by chance came upon this interesting gem from Richard Elfman (yes, Danny Elfman’s brother of partial Oingo Boingo fame) entitled The Schlimazel of Sebreim. Though I was familiar with the name of both […]
