Publisher's Summary

Seven tales of terror that could only beat in the dark, diseased heart of Dixie....

An abandoned furnace stands as a monument to cruelty and torture...as well as a gathering place for old ghosts....

Grandma's culinary gifts of comfort and compassion contain a special ingredient conjured from the very depths of Hell....

A man's stubborn curiosity awakens an insatiable hunger on a lonesome country road....

A surprise feature plays on the big screen of a drive-in theatre, revealing a town gathering that should have been left in secrecy and darkness....

Two boys explore a traveler's mobile museum of cinematic horrors, only to discover that true horror is not always what it first appears to be....

Grandpa's Christmas Eve story brings a yuletide visit from a wandering ghost with a long-unfulfilled mission....

It started out as nothing more than a shortcut home... a detour through a shadowy stretch of forest known as Tanglewood. But what awaited him there, amid the brush and bramble, made a simple flat tire seem like a horrifying journey into madness....

Excellent short story collection
From vengeful grandmothers to a sinister spot in the woods there’s plenty to keep you interested
Well narrated and highly recommended

Spoiler alert not for children

I enjoyed the first two stories but the third story pissed me off it involved a dog being sacrificed. I wish I could have given it a lower score. I received this book at my request and I wish I didn't. I am leaving my honest review here voluntarily. Do not bother

Another Fantastic Collection from Ronald Kelly

Ronald Kelly is one of the best modern horror writers. His stories are always full of southern charm and atmosphere. This is another fantastic collection of creepy tales.
I really enjoyed Brad Smith's narration.
Another winner from Crossroad Press.
Highly recommended.

Ronald Kelly is a sinister storyteller!

I am a massive fan of Kelly's work and his short horror stories are nothing short of terrifying brilliance. This book, among much of his work, is told by a sinister mastermind with the ability shock and awe even veteran horror enthusiasts.
