My Rating ~ 4 bites

Five slices of juicy goodness in this Halloween anthology. Juicy may not be a good word choice to use here. How about shudder inducing? Yeah, that’s about right.

The Riggle Twins by Gregor Xane ~ I think this is my favorite of the five. I was confused at first, but the writing was so delicious I had to find out what the hell was going on. I was still a little confused at the end, but I can’t say I wasn’t entertained.

Pumpkinhead Ted by Evans Light ~ The cruelty in this one got to me. Well-written, but I didn’t like it. And the ending left me scratching my head. But I’m almost always left scratching my head when I read horror, so that’s not a big deal.

Ghost Light Road by Adam Light ~ Now, this one is my 2nd favorite. I can easily picture this as an episode of Supernatural. How truly creepy it is! However, I find it incredibly hard to believe that Bill wasn’t passed out cold from the booze he was drinking. I call bullshit that he could drive, walk, talk and be cognizant enough to tell his tale in the morning. But still…Supernatural! Call Sam & Dean!

Easy Pickings by Jason Parent ~ What dafuq did I read here? I don’t understand Jack and his buddy Jacob. Though I’m not upset that dickhead Trevor got what he deserved.

The Scare Rows by Edward Lorn ~ To the man who got me reading horror I can say this…yowzers! I grew up on a farm. I used to run between the cornstalks. I’m glad I never read anything like this when I was growing up or I may not have turned out so well-adjusted. I’m staying far far away from any Halloween event that even remotely resembles the Scare Rows and that includes that damn Corn Maze just down the road!
