This is a very old book, going back to 1995 and the days of the DIY chapbooks we used to print off my old Brother word processor. I've known these guys longer than I've had kids and [they] taught me more in those early days of my own writing than I could ever repay. So to celebrate my two best friends, I wanted to finally let this collection be seen the way it never could in 1995. I hope you like it. And if not, well, I hope they like it at least. Most of the works here are pretty old, but I think they still hold up pretty well.
This collection features reviews of the Hellraiser, Pulse, Feast, Leprechaun, and Boogeyman franchises as well as classic horror films like Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things, Keep My Grave Open, Beast of the Yellow Night, The Vampire's Night Orgy, and more.

"Well read story.."

"Hilarious story, AWESOME performance!"
