This month’s contents!
Item #1: The House of Small Shadows by Adam Nevill. Rated 3.4 stars out of 5 on GoodReads. Catharine gets a new job cataloguing the late M H Mason’s eccentric collection of antique dolls and puppets. Mason’s niece invites her to stay at Red House, where she maintains the collection. She thinks she’s lucky until his niece exposes her to the dark message behind the “art.” Soon the barriers between reality, sanity, and memory blend together, and the truth seems too terrible to be real. Sounds like a psychological horror story. And pretty awesome!
Item #2: The Captive Condition by Kevin P. Keating. Rated 2.77 out of 5 stars on GoodReads. When Emily Ryan is found drowned in her family’s pool full of barbiturates and alcohol her lover finds himself responsible for her twin daughters that make him so filled with guilt he tries to hide them from his wife. A criminal named Gonk takes over a cottage of a reclusive elderly artist. His apprentice seeks retribution for the professor’s wicked deeds. The town draws its inhabitants into inexplicable behavior until the horror reaches a disturbing conclusion. Not sure what this is about tbh. But sounds interesting.
Item #3: Urban Massacre. Rappers are killed by a crazy clown.…Strangely has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, but a 1.6/10 on IMDB. I’d go with the IMDB score on this one. Couldn’t get past the first ten minutes of this. It was really bad. In that B movie kind of way. But I’m sure some people really enjoy it, that’s why Rotten Tomatoes has 100%.
