Gehenna is the town, a zombie infestation is the game, and survival is the aim for a small group desperate for escape as the horde get closer. This story was certainly an entertaining actionfest, taking on a here and now philosophy with not much in the way of history/character depth but that’s a small complaint …Read More

The Dunfield Terror is apparently a ‘Lovecraftian horror’ from Scottish author William Meikle, not being well versed in Lovecraft I can’t comment on that but this most certainly has Fog, strange monsters and impending doom in abundance.

Surrogate by David Bernstein certainly explored an interesting topic but overall I felt there were a few issues that hampered the flow in an otherwise rocket paced novella. The story opens with Rebecca Hardwick doing some gardening, then a second later she gets shot in the stomach, which I thought to be a bit random …Read More

The story starts with an anecdote on the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale, telling the events that inspired the child friendly fable but this version lacks any semblance of a happy ending. In fact an altogether darker affair that develops into a tale that easily and scarily broaches modern day times and I was definitely hooked by …Read More

Matt Shaw writes extreme horror with explicit sex and violence that in no way overshadows the extremely clever plot’s full of twists and surprises you just never see coming.

Cruelty is an epic horror serial by Edward Lorn, the first episode was originally released in January 2014 and the next four followed in rapid succession.

Some Kind of Cu*t from Matt Shaw’s black cover extreme horror series is a seriously troubling and sickening story, it was just too much, crossed to many boundaries that I feel strongly about and in the world of shocking stories. This one exploded way off the scale. A Family, maybe Cult serves better, starts with …Read More

Don’t Read is the latest book from Matt Shaw’s black cover series of extreme horror and this one features a pretty twisted individual writing a book, of sorts anyway. A story that could quite easily sit alongside Matt’s, the only difference, hopefully anyway, is that this one is more of a biography. Chris is writing …Read More

Another novella in the extreme horror category, although I do have to ask how they decide it’s extreme because in most cases, it isn’t what I would call extreme.

I had high expectations with The Three after seeing some of the excellent reviews and why not this was a major release, but in the end was left feeling well, absolutely nothing.
