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.
Tony Schaab’s highly respected “G.O.R.E. Score” gives THE INFECTION, my apocalyptic horror novel coming out from Permuted Press on February 28, a score of 8 out of 10: “28 DAYS LATER meets THE MIST … action-packed zombie mayhem that you won’t want to put down … a definite page turner right from the get-go all the way to the insanely intense final scene.”
