Moody, dark and chilling.


This morning I listened to The Girl In The Video by Michael David Wilson and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Michael has conjured up the perfect amount of imagery for the setting with very effective word economy.
This book has so many qualities that a horror fiction story should have; it’s moody, dark and chilling.
For anyone who has been to Japan and found there to be something perplexingly sinister about the wackiness of it all, I dare say that this book will satisfy.
The story has a semblance similar to modern Japanese classics such as Ringu by Koji Suzuki, or at least that’s where my mind went.
If you listen to the This Is Horror podcast you won’t be disappointed. I frequently found myself hearing to Michael’s own voice when listening to RJ Bayley, who has done a sterling job as a voice actor.
I particularly enjoyed the relationship with technology and the narrators inner voice.
What I did not expect was the humour. Throughout the beginning of the story and into the meat of the tale the narrator has a uniquely quirky knack of offering humorous mental matters of opinion that somehow add to the chilling ordeal. An extremely effective tool that I love to see in comic books but rarely notice enough of in horror fiction. Excellent work on the narrator’s voice, his thoughts echo my own.
Its not for the faint of heart. It’s also not hours of torture porn. It’s the perfect mix of prose, tone and suspense leading to a wonderfully vile crescendo.
Thank you for the opportunity to review, and thank you for the hours of podcasts.

This is fantastic

Fresh from reading They're Watching, Michael David Wilson's collaborative effort with Bob Pastorella, I was fortunate enough to have MDW offer me the chance to review The Girl in the Video on audio. I think, although I've only just finished, I liked this one even more. I finished it in one day, so it's fast, and that definitely works in its favour.

What Wilson does so well in this one is similar to the plot in They're Watching: as the chaos unfurls, the mystery deepens, and the plot drags you deeper and deeper into the drama, compelling you to keep listening and find out just what the hell is happening.

The book is laced with wry humour - and enough Metal references to keep someone like me very happy - and all of that only softens you up for the killer blow coming in the denouement.

And that doesn't even mention the very satisfactory ending. I was on tenterhooks in the last few pages, and Wilson's use of misdirection while referencing some classic mystery films is expertly executed.

Another great one, and after these last two, I'll be back for more and more and more.
