Grim Reader Reviews: Calvin Demmer Talks to Christa Carmen

For WiH Month 2018, horror writer Calvin Demmer interviewed Christa Carmen for Adrian Shotbolt's Grim Reader Reviews website. As Grim Reader Reviews is, quite unfortunately, no longer up and running, the interview is being reprinted here. I'd like to echo the gratitude expressed back in February 2018 to both Calvin and Adrian for spotlighting WiH and for putting together a great list of questions. Read more of this blog post »

“Eve wasn't sure what right the clown had to butcher the poor girl like that. In fact, most horror movies made her angry. Though the 'final girl' usually got out alive, she was stripped of so much by the time the credits rolled.”

“Kyle's throat caught.

His boastful expression turned to panic. He made the universal sign of choking at her, and stamped his feet like a child having a temper tantrum in the candy aisle.

Chloe did not move.”

“The ever-present macabre, a universal dance,
You cannot hide, whether you wield crossbow or lance.
Like the bones of the house in which you dwell,
Death will come, to drag your soul to hell.”

“You can't drink 'English afternoon tea' in the morning," the barista said to her, his eyes blazing like shards of crystal meth about to ignite. "Do you want to be responsible for fucking up the universe?”

“Defeated, Jo turned her head as the knives hurdled through the air. There was another photograph on the wall: a shot of Franny Jo had never seen before. As the woman in the photo watched her knives driven home, the corners of her mouth turned up. For the first time ever, Jo was privy to a genuine smile on the lips of Franny Trymark.”
