    Splatter-Punks: The Definitive Anthology Reviews

  • Jack Tripper

    (Updated 3/31/19)This isn't really my type of horror. There are several books I like that fall under the "splatterpunk" or "extreme horror" label, but mostly I prefer the intrusion of the otherworldly...

  • Brad

    This particular term for a wave of horror writers may have passed, but these stories continue to kick major ass. I've re-read this one a few times and it really makes you think about what could freak ...

  • Baldurian

    Una discreta antologia horror, sedici racconti estremi (abbastanza) convincenti. I migliori sono, poco sorprendentemente, figli di autori di un certo livello (La sera che non andarono all'Horror Show ...

    Preface: Been hunting this thing down for a year or two, finally caved when I stumbled onto a copy in great condition for surprisingly cheap. As per usual I'll keep this on my nightstand for those nig...

  • Amanda

    I absolutely loved this anthology! It was an awesome way to get acquainted to more authors in the splatterpunk genre. As it is sometimes hard to describe to others, I found a quote by Peter Straub on ...

  • Erin

    I liked this more than I thought I might, and I never felt like throwing down the book in disgust (which I feared might happen). Definitely some interesting stories here, but I could have done without...
