Digging into the Garden of Fiends

You may know Mark Matthews best from his Milk-Blood books–a dark and brooding, heroin-laden nightmare of a world where heroin and it’s victims are the monsters who do the unspeakable.   690 more words


Joyride by Jack Ketchum

Joyride seemed to be on a different level than our previous novels and films. When I say “next level” I don’t mean to insinuate that was a more challenging read, but that the psychological thriller aspect was more intricate than we’d been used to. 685 more words

First, I must express to the world that I cannot see this author’s name without thinking of Ash Ketchum from Pokémon.

Now, on to the actual novel. 514 more words

Book review: Garden of Fiends - Tales of addiction horror.

Mark Mathews’ Wicked Run Press has assembled quite the cast to share these stories of addiction horror. A mixture of novellas, short stories and a flash fiction piece, ‘Garden of Fiends’ is not a happy reading experience but it is an incredibly fascinating and at times grim one. 604 more words

Book Review - "Hide & Seek" by Jack Ketchum

A lot of people passionate about either loving or hating this one, I clearly fall into the camp of the former. I feel expectations play a big role in whether we enjoy a book, and the blurb for this one is quite deceiving … The “game” itself is only the last fourth of the novel. 222 more words

A short review of "XX" (2017)

I’m sorry to report that this year’s “XX” doesn’t quite live up to the great horror anthology that its trailer promises.  This quartet of female-directed horror shorts is actually quite average, when considered together, and I’d give it a 6 out of 10. 214 more words
