So here we have a deliciously dark selection of horror stories, brought to you by some talented authors! The summary here says it best..."A young woman’s night-time escapade goes eerily wrong. A man is forced to relive the horrible accident that tore his family apart over and over again. An underground thrill through ancient catacombs proves disastrously horrific. A young boy is haunted by the scarecrow in the fields behind his home. And a woman is revisited by the ghost of a psychotic killer in the most dreadful of ways."
I'm really impressed with some of these stories. Often times with short stories, I feel like something is missing, but here most of the stories felt complete. I think my favourite was Scarecrow, where a young boy and his sister are abused by their drunken father. The father acquires a scarecrow to watch over the corn fields but the scarecrow keeps moving. Who is moving it and why? This one was equal parts heartbreaking as it was incredibly scary!! I've always been afraid of scarecrows, they are just so so creepy, so this one really frightened me.
As in any collection, there are some stories better than others, but all of them are entertaining and worth the read! I've found some new authors to check out!! I'd highly recommend you check out this book, and as I write this review, the kindle edition is free, so grab it and be in for an awesome ride!!
Matt Gilcheck read the stories really well. He did a great job bringing the atmosphere of each story to life.

If you expect to get scared reading this book, never fear. There is no scariness here, just ridiculous stories.
Not a bad collection of short stories but nothing particularly outstanding. The narrator was pretty irritating with a "I'm going to try to change my tone so it sounds scarier" kind of voice. Only 3 stars though I'm afraid (partly because I wasn't!)
