Two titans of modern horror-Brian Keene and Bryan Smith-team up for the terrifying crossover sequel to both Keene’s URBAN GOTHIC and Smith’s THE FREAKSHOW.
The Westgate Galleria Mall was once a sprawling, shining monument to American consumerism and suburban growth. Now, it is a crumbling reminder of how both have fallen-an architectural ghost, haunting the outskirts of society. That makes it the perfect filming location for a YouTube channel devoted to the exploration of abandoned places. But the mall isn’t as empty as it seems and the residents have sinister obscene plans for them. Now, with the daylight still hours away, both the hunters and the hunted will fight to stay alive…and desperately try to make it home.
SUBURBAN GOTHIC by Brian Keene and Bryan Smith-Home is where is the severed heart is…
“A feast of good old-fashioned horror.”
—Brian Keene, author of Ghoul
They are The Dark Ones. The name began as a self-deprecating joke, but it stuck and now it’s a source of pride. They’re the one who don’t fit in. The misfits who drink and smoke too much and stay out all hours of the night. Everyone knows they’re trouble.
On the outskirts of Ransom, TN is an abandoned, boarded-up house. Something evil happened there long ago. The evil has been contained there ever since, locked down tight in the basement—until the night The Dark Ones set it free . . .
In the middle-of-nowhere, USA, there is a town not on any map. A place where outsiders are tortured, raped, and eaten. Where local law enforcement runs a sex trafficking ring. And the woods hold even more monstrous secrets.
Today four unlucky travelers will end up in Hopkins Bend. If they want to ever get out alive they will have to become just as vicious and violent as their pursuers. Just as…depraved.
“Depraved lives up to its name in the most brutal and visceral way. Sort of like a roller-coaster ride… but with battery acid and razor blades on the handlebars.” -Ronald Kelly
Roxie is the goth girl of your dreams. There’s just one problem-she’s batshit crazy and has a fetish for murder. After a petty insult at a gas station, she goes on a murder spree, hunting down those that pissed her off.
But she’s not the only monster on the road. There are others out there killing and raping. And everyone’s headed to the same beach house. A desolate vacation getaway with no neighbors and no one to hear the screams.
Deadite Press is proud to bring back Bryan Smith’s nasty novel of murder, torture, and the darkest side of human nature-The Killing Kind
“I look forward to spending a weekend with a new Bryan Smith book the way I used to look forward to spending a weekend with a new Richard Laymon novel. In my view, there isn‘t higher praise than that.”-Brian Keene, author of The Rising.
“Holy. Shit.”-Horror Drive-In
The road to hell is paved with angels and demons. Brain worms and dead prostitutes. Serial killers and frustrated writers. Zombies and Rock ‘n Roll. And once you start down this path, there is no going back.
Collecting thirteen tales of shock and terror from Bryan Smith, Highways to Hell is a non-stop road-trip of cruelty, pain, and death. Grab a seat, Smith has such sights to show you.
If you’re a teenage metal head The Southern Illinois Music Reeducation Center is not the place you want to go. The center specializes in “de-metaling” – a treatment to cure teens of their metal loving, devil worshiping ways. A program that subjects its prisoners to sexual abuse, torture, and brain-washing. But tonight things get much worse. Tonight the flesh-eating zombies come . . .
