There have been less than a handful of stories that, upon finishing reading them, I look up from the page and think to myself â€śThe author had better continue this!â€ť The Ink Man is such a story.
The Ink Man is the first of four short stories in Samantha Combsâ€™ new book entitled â€śTeeth And Talons Anthologyâ€ť and it is by far the best of the … Continue reading
â€śBlood is like a rainbow, like red violet when it first flows, black in the moon light.â€ť
Every now and again a volume of literature is so gritty, so enthralling, so psychologically spell binding we tend to forget what particular genre it slides most neatly into. Robert Whiteâ€™s story of private d*ck Thomas Haftmann and his obsession with solving an increasingly complex case is … Continue reading
It took me about two hours to finish reading Donâ€™t Let Me In: Six Tales Of Terror and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with the individual stories in this collection. If cannibalism, campground horror stories come to life, selling your soul to the devil, and genetically engineered soldiers is your cup of tea, have I got a story (or … Continue reading
Full disclosure: I submitted to this anthology and was rejected. On the other hand, my wife, who allows me access to all her soft and naughty bits, has a story on display within its pages. My hope is that the two cancel each other out and leave a relative sense of objectivity to my review. Just wanted to warn you.
Any time you call something â€śextremeâ€ť or â€śshockingâ€ť or any of those … Continue reading
So here we are again. Another review. This time it is for an anthology titled Terrorklowns: The Dark Stories. What can I say about this? The book is badass. The stories themselves are more than entertaining. Not just f*cked up in a good way, but really good. Jarrod L. Dodson wrote each story featured within this one-shot. It shows how passionate he is about the genre. The artwork … Continue reading

Welcome to another book review. Today we will be talking about p*rn, p*rn for psychos. Whoever could conceive of such a clever title? Wrath James White, thatâ€™s who. The guy has a natural talent for hardcore horror and sex, graphic sex. Not just a quick sentence or two, but paragraphs of detailed sex scenes. I have to say that I thought Iâ€™d read it all, but this, this tops all the usual horror novels … Continue reading
One man, one goal. Oneâ€™s own demented method of stopping the overpopulation of earth by sterilization. This novella, short but sick as hell in a good way, was an entertaining read. The story was fast paced and disturbingly brutal as hell. Wrath James White has a knack for freaking out his readers, in the end leaving them craving for more.
Wrathâ€™s tale of demented obsession with trying to save … Continue reading

I must admit, I was intrigued by this book simply by the name. I mean, everyone has probably wanted to kill a co-worker or two in their lifetime. But still, lamenting over well placed break room knifes and scalding coffee only gets you so far so letâ€™s read some good stories, shall we?
While reading down the books … Continue reading
â€śA big film that has the luxury of a $150 million ad budget will certainly educate the public as to what the title means or what kind of film it is. But when you have no money and youâ€™re at the video store or scrolling down the menu on iTunes or Apple TV, the title has to be understandable so people get it. If you can tell a story without even a log line, … Continue reading
