NEW REVIEW: Matt Shaw - Dribble (2018)

May 10, 2018
Next up on DLS Reviews, Matt Shaw’s novella ‘Dribble’ (2018) gets a full slice ‘n’ dice dissection.  It’s another story of extreme horror from one of the veritable masters of the subgenre.  But here, rather than blood-dripping violence and brutality, instead we’re subjected to a melee of truly nauseating and utterly vile scenes designed to churn your guts at the thought of it.

Not a pleasant read at all.  Textbook Matt Shaw…

 

NEW REVIEW: Daniel March Chant - Mr Robespierre (2015)

May 6, 2018
British author Daniel Marc Chant writes with such elegance…such a wonderfully British charm.  In many respects his writing style is somewhat akin to James Herbert’s.  His novella ‘Mr Robespierre’ (2015) showcases this perfectly.  The story may not be bubbling over with originality, in fact, the plot is a classic poltergeist style story that’s probably been done in one form or another numerous times.  Nevertheless it’s with Chant’s wordsmanship where the real strength in the stor...

NEW FEATURE: Matt Shaw - Monster (2017)

May 2, 2018
“The tension created in the film is so gut-churning, so painfully intense, it becomes nigh on impossible to take your eyes off the screen even for a second.  In fact, so much of the film is designed to make its audience feel uncomfortable, that it’s hard to actually ‘enjoy’ sitting there watching it.”

“In ‘Monster’ you should expect nothing short of an unrelenting gnawing away at your base senses.  This is a film designed to creep you out.  Its whole sadistic aim is to get unde...

NEW REVIEW: Sinister Horror Company - The Offering (2017)

May 1, 2018
Whether you’re new to the publications by the Sinister Horror Company or not, I can’t recommended they’re collection ‘The Offering’ (2017) enough.  The collection contains nine short stories by J.R. Park and Daniel Marc Chant, many of which haven’t been published anywhere else.  However, it’s the sheer quality of the short stories that makes the collection such a solid purchase.  They’re all corkers without exception.  Furthermore they showcase the incredible diversity and ima...

NEW INTERVIEW: William Holloway (April 2018)

April 28, 2018
William Holloway is a Texas based author whose work has delved into the darkest reaches of cosmic horror and the corruption of the human psyche.  His ‘Singularity Cycle’ series has unveiled nightmarish visions and diabolical manifestations, and looks to plummet the limitless abyss of soul-destroying darkness still further.

DLS Reviews caught up with the man behind the hellish visions to find out more about his creations, his life and the ungodly horror he still has in store for us.

NEW REVIEW: Adam Howe - Wrestle Maniacs (2018)

April 26, 2018
So far one of the most entertaining reads of 2018 is undoubtedly Adam Howe’s anthology ‘Wrestle Maniacs’ (2018).  Thirteen stories of completely frigging off-the-wall maniacal wrestling madness, with unrestrained ‘roid rage and copious amounts of blood splattering pretty much every page.

Whether you’re a fan of old school lycra-donning wrestling or not, you’re guaranteed to enjoy this ass-kicking collection.

DLS Reviews gets in the ring to take on each story, one muscle-flexing bast...

NEW REVIEW: Jörg Buttgereit - Nekromantik #1 (2016)

April 15, 2018
When it was announced that Jörg Buttgereit was releasing a comic book that continued the ‘Nekromantik’ story, I have to confess, a small amount of drool might have escaped the corner of my mouth and splattered onto my keyboard.  For many horror enthusiasts, Buttgereit’s ‘Nekromantik’ films hold a special place in their collections (and their lives).
How many of you watched the two films on incredibly ropey, eighth generation VHS copies, with crackling sound, a fuzzy distorted pictur...

NEW REVIEW: Guy Portman - Sepultura (2018)

April 14, 2018
If you fancy a well-cut slice of dark satirical comedy in the vein of ‘Dexter’ crossed with ‘American Psycho’ then you really should pick up a copy of Guy Portman’s ‘Necropolis’ (2014) and its spectacular sequel ‘Sepultura’ (2018).  Honest to god, both novels are so damn entertaining, you’ll not want to put them down once their quick-witted protagonist, Dyson Devereux, charms you into his web.

DLS Reviews gets its scalpels out and performs a full-sociopathic-dissection on t...

NEW REVIEW: Matt Shaw - Sick (2017)

April 6, 2018
British author Matt Shaw’s someone who knows a thing or two about pushing the boundaries of taste.  Shaw’s probably best known for his infamous ‘Black Cover’ books.  Extreme horror stories that depict scenes of hard-hitting violence, blood-drenched horror, and visceral-as-hell gore.  There are very few lines that Shaw won’t cross in this tales.  And he’s come under fire, attempts at censorship and potential banning, because of it.

So what does Shaw do about such reactions to his wo...
