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)

  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)

  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 […]

No One Rides for Free (Absolutely Disgusting Splatter Horror)

No One Rides for Free (Absolutely Disgusting Splatter Horror)

  I found myself pondering what the best way to start my New Year’s off with, looked in my TBR, and made the decision that a short and sweet Judith Sonnet special would do the trick. Let’s just say, would I class it as “the best way?” I don’t actually know. Books like this make it […]

Ensuring Your Place in Hell (Splatploitation Horror Literature)

Ensuring Your Place in Hell (Splatploitation Horror Literature)

  I’m going to be honest, this kind of pushed some boundaries for me, and that says a lot. I’m phased by very little, nothing much bothers me in terms of heavy description or squeamishness or violence. My avid reading of extreme horror of all kinds has completely desensitized me to the majority of things. […]

Superfan (Boy Band Revenge Gore Fiction)

Superfan (Boy Band Revenge Gore Fiction)

  Parasocial relationships with bands have been a thing since the dawn of time, I’m pretty sure. For young teenagers who love boy bands this is a huge thing; girls love their favorite member, fantasize about them, dream of meeting them, and just breathing the same air. But they always say don’t meet your heroes […]

Churchburner (Black Metal Gangsta Rap Metafiction)

  This landed into my emails with no description apart from something along the lines of “this sounds good!!” So when I tried to search it up for myself, just to get a little insight, apart from its obvious namesake, I trawled and found very little. But I was increasingly intrigued because of it. No […]
