With a selection of horror stories, this has some good connective tissue between them, with a nice base for it all.
The first story seems to be a simple slasher horror. It adds something more. The main character is totally unlikable, and the kids are really well done. The kids are the key to this story and their flashbacks are well done – with some good washed out tones and commentary. The finish is a nice twist and slightly satisfying too.
The second story seems like a classic horror. With a werewolf and what goes with it. There is a nice twist with the promise of breaking the curse. This was well done, with some good commentary. I like the ending and the twist that goes with it – the rest is open to your imagination.
The final story links in well with the connecting story. I like the build up, and the main people are pretty creepy. The humour at the end was unexpected and I like the way it all finished off.
This was a good read and connected well.
