Twisted

A wonderful mix of horror shorts
From a deadly game of hide and seek to ghosts needing help crossing over there wasn’t a dud in the bunch
Well narrated and the perfect length for a Sunday drive in the country

Solid Performance of a Decently Creepy Collection

Small Town Terrors was a decently creepy collection with varied stories and different kinds of horror from the quiet to the loud. Each story was short and fairly minimalist but at the same time able to provide enough of a structure to make it hit hard and feel something. I don't really have a favorite as they were all fairly even without any holding the collection back.

The narration was great and definitely enhanced the experience. With short stories such as these that definitely helps as the voice adds more personality, drama, and terror to the story than can be done solely through writing.

Scary

Good collection of weird and frightening tales. You’ll squirm and lock your doors. You won’t want to listen alone.

A Small Town I Might Visit

I received an Audible code for an honest review. What follows is my opinion and mine alone. There was no compensation for this review.

Small Town Terrors is a collection of horror stories all centered around a small town in Florida and its residents. If you think the news stories about Floridians are scary, wait until you read or listen to this book.

There were some short stories that didn't resonate with me and I felt were used often, but Alderman started and ended the book on a strong note. He left the mythos open for something more and I wouldn't mind seeing a more expanded universe of the small town he crafted in this collection of short stories. 

There were two in particular that really stood out for me. One about a family who are having money and food troubles and the other is about a girl during Halloween night. With the first story, I'm not sure how it fits with the small town. It felt like it belonged in a more dystopian like horror book, but I do think it was unique. I would love to see that expanded and made into something more full length or even see more of that strange setting.

The same goes for the Halloween story. It would make for a great book. It had a mythology to it that I wanted to know more of and fits perfectly with the small town Alderman crafted.

This was a good quick horror collection with a bit of something for all types of horror fans. I wouldn't mind seeing more of the small town or even a full-length book based off of one of Alderman's stories (there seemed to be a hint of something like that in the last two stories).

Final Rating: 3/5

Good collection of eerie stories

At my request, I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I love a good spooky story and I'm always searching for new ones I've never heard before. Small Town Terrors didn't disappoint. I really liked that each chapter was a different stand-alone short story. A few of the stories weren't as much scary as they were strange but others totally creeped me out. It probably didn't help that I listened to the sleepwalking story right before bed. I think that one was my favorite. I also really enjoyed the one about the cats. Good book!

Great Collection!

A quirky collection of psychological horror. A lot of them had some pretty unexpected endings though almost all of them were gruesome in way. If you’re a fan of slasher horror, you’ll enjoy this short collection.

These stories were narrated beautifully by Katrina Medina who gave just the right amount of suspense at the perfect moments.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

gross and disturbing

This book features a handful of short horror stories. Great for short commutes, break time, or when you have a very little time. I would personally make sure the kids were no where near though. The 2nd story in the book is about cats. My warning to you is not to listen to it anywhere near meal time. It is kind of gross and very disturbing. Also I don't live very far from Port St. John Florida, but after a few stories in this book taking place there I will not be visiting that town anytime soon. If you like the psychological type of horror grab this book.

I must say Roger Alderman Jr. has a very sick and twisted mind, and I loved it. Katrina Medina narrates the book and does a great job of putting the fear into you and the stories.

Delightful range of gore!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This book is not for the faint of heart! Full of horror and gore. Great variety of short stories keep you interested. Like a grown up version of scary stories to tale in the dark. Very fun listen. A couple of the stories left me absolutely giddy.

Narrator was very pleasant to listen to. Very good flow.

Would recomend to lovers of such things as tales from the dark side, and twilight zone. very good!
