Publisher's Summary

Two idiots, Leonhard "Rocky" Krauss and Byron "Twig" Schlaeger, escape from a mental institution, Cedar Hill Sanitarium, and go on a murderous rampage. Rocky is a large man suffering from gigantism, and Twig is a foul-mouthed and perverted little person. Separately, they had always been mistreated and bullied, but together, they are unstoppable, unleashing sadistic and barbaric acts of violence on the assholes of society.  

Warning! This is an extreme-horror/splatterpunk story that contains adult content, including, but not limited to: profanity, sexuality, brutality, and obscenities. If you're not a seasoned extreme-horror listener, it's highly advised not to embark on this journey. It will save you distress and it'll save me a negative review.

Fast paced and not for the weak stomached

Took off fast and never stopped. No down time in this novel from Wade Garrett. Some very creative characters who definitely know how to torture. This sexually amped story leaves nothing to be imagined. I did like how one of the characters evolved through the story to be almost just as sick as his co-conspirator, or should I say “his boss.” Funny dialogues at times but I feel that brought out just how sick these clowns were. Creative, well written, and not for the weak stomached.

A Great Book for the Extreme Horror Fan

When it come to writing extreme horror mixed with dar humor and politically incorrectness Wade H. Garrett does not disappoint.

The moral to the story is Don't be an ass to people who are different, look different because if you are you just might end up on the wrong end of an insane persons agenda . Rocky and Twigg are 2 guys who's life was dealt at the Cedar Hill Sanitarium and when they escaped all hell broke loose for the poor bastards who made fun of Rocky and Twigg. A mind blowing story full of gore and carnage and good old extreme horror .

Kicks it!

This is another well written and awesomely twisted book by Wade H Garrett and the narration by Tom Beyer is top-notch. Love this production. Must listen to this audio adaptation to really discover what twisted extreme horror really should be in this kick a$$ performance.

Sadistic

The most brutal hardcore disgusting book I have ever listened too... Love it!! The detail the author puts into the story makes you visualize it as if your watching a movie in your head along with the guy telling the story. Will be listening to all his books.

The world is full of assholes - Twig

You know that feeling when you’ve eaten too much cotton candy and gone on a carnival ride? That’s how this book made me feel. It was so much fun but made me feel like throwing up. This is easily Wade’s best and most entertaining book to date, although some would argue that I should be locked up in the Cedar Hill Sanitarium for thinking this is in any way entertaining.
I consider myself a seasoned extreme horror reader, but without hesitation, I can say this road trip of debauchery has some of the sickest and most disgusting yet inventive gore scenes I’ve read. There’s also the darkest shade of black humour which could also be used as evidence towards my Cedar Hill incarceration. While the focus of the book is on the gore scenes, there’s enough character development of the two leads to keep it from getting boring and repetitive.
What elevated this to the next level was Tom Beyer’s reading on the audiobook of this novel. Tom’s gleeful narration of such disgusting content feels like being read a children’s bedtime story for damaged adults. I was impressed with the varied repertoire of voices he used where each character was distinctly different and identifiable. But, learn from my mistakes and keep the windows up when listening to this in your car.
Although I received this for free from Wade, I would happily pay for it and highly recommend it to others looking to dip into the deep end of the gore pool.

Twisted and demented.. I loved it!

I had to take a break every once in a while to pet something furry or hear a child's laughter. Just to scrub some of the images from my brain.

I Didn't Want To Like It

So my wife reads all this splatterpunk garbage. I'm a fantasy reader, I enjoy being painted a picture with each sentence, I love epic battles, swords, magic, dragons etc. I listen to audiobooks on my journey to work, my wife spoke to Wade Garrett on Facebook and managed to get a free Audible copy of this for me to try out.

I put it on and turned it off after 2 chapters. I just didn't like the way the book was written, the writing style seemed too simplistic for me.

She made me keep trying, and eventually I was pulling up into my work car park thinking 'damn, I need to hear what happens next'

I looked into Wade Garrett a little, I read an interview with him. I know now that I was too judgemental intially, the guy is a new author and even criticises his own writing style. Knowing WHY he writes his books and who he bases them on has made the world of difference for me. I have nothing but respect for the guy (he's qualified up to the eyeballs too!)

But anyway, onto the book.

Insane Bastards is a bloodbath from start to finish. The gore, the imagination, my god [SPOILER ALERT] I didn't even know you could 'invert' the male reproductive organ! Some really creepy, crazy and just downright filthy stuff is going on here. For a first timer into splatterpunk it's set the mark way too high for me and I'm afraid I'll just be comparing everyone else to Wade H. Garrett now.

My only negative is the heavy over-use of the term 'I'm gonna kill your ass'

Boring

completely boring. was expecting real gore and aggressiveness but didn't find any during 7 chapters. I'm sure there is something better out there.

Does not disappoint!

Mr. Garrett's usual theme of extreme gore and blood-soaked torment. Even if you're a seasoned gore/horror fan, this audio book still has many disturbing moments. This is the third audio book I have by wade Garrett, and is by far my favourite, made so by the amazing narrator, he voices each character with their own accent and vocal tones, the main protagonists "twig" and "rocky" sound just as my imagination sounded when I read the book format.

As for content, this is wade Garrett at his best/worst depending on how you view his material, I don't know who rattled his cage before he wrote this, but they sure got him thinking...

if the marquis de sade read this book, he'd think it depraved.

well done, Mr Garrett, another great offering... now... can we get back onto sorting Barry out?
