NEW YORK TIMES bestselling horror writer Jonathan Maberry, author of PATIENT ZERO, ROT & RUIN and other greats, calls THE INFECTION, new from Permuted Press, a “wild ride into the darkest regions of zombie territory. Brilliant and terrifying!”
David Moody, author of horror classics HATER and AUTUMN, calls THE INFECTION, new from Permuted Press, “not just another zombie story … DiLouie takes everything you know and love about the world and turns it into something else entirely. Unflinching horror and surreal, almost dream-like imagery combine to make THE INFECTION a disturbing, nightmarish read.”
Oh man, this is totally creepy. Great song, too.
“A figure appeared under the streetlight at the end of the alley, a small silhouette. Paul squinted at it for a few moments, unsure it was even a person until he realized it was growing larger. Moving towards him. It passed a light fixture mounted on a neighbor’s garage and Paul caught a glimpse of its terrible face.”
We know that the living dead want to eat us, but we didn’t know why. Now we do: It’s because the living are so goddam cute they just have to eat our face off.
Here’s an example of a low-budget horror film done without stereotypes: SALVAGE. The film offers us believable characters who aren’t always likable but you can’t help but sympathize with; as a result, their terror is infectious to the viewer. (Unfortunately, for me the premise of the cover-up was kind of dumb and ruined the otherwise very poignant ending.) Still, it was entertaining and I recommend it.
