Read from March 13 to 18, 2012

I picked up this book thinking it was a full length novel. As it turned out it was more of a short story collection.
I didn't find them particularly horrifying or interesting. Mostly it read like a bad horror movie where they relied more on blood and gut that story. It seemed to me he wanted his 'monster' to have a depth to them that he failed to express in his writing. Making them shallow beasts lurking in the darkness and given fancy names and powers.
If i had to say that anything was interesting it was the comparison of the short stories and their subsequent movies; NightBreed and Lord of Illusion.
