What happens when found footage and cursed videos meet creepypasta Internet memes? When Slender Man becomes The Screamer? Ask Terry West, because he knows . . . and he’s not afraid to share all the grisly details.

Of course, in an age of cloud computing and steaming media, cursed VHS tapes are a quaint memory. So, how do you keep the cursed footage genre alive? If you’re talking Transfer, then you take that technology and make it a part of the story. Howie and Nick are media professionals,

The characters are well-drawn and entertaining. Their comradery and jokes work well. And the "Green Room" is a ...more

My first read from Terry M. West, and certainly will not be my last. Transfer is a short punch of horror that grabs hold and doesn't relent--even after the story ends. The characters were well developed, which is saying something in itself given the novella length novel. Lots of technical jargon but not muddied by it. I'm sure there are those in "the biz" that were more impacted by this extra layer. Wasn't crystal clear on how the author intended the "Screamer" to look like, but in my head I was ...more
