I’ve been meaning to read some of David Owain Hughes’ work for a while now.  And with DLS HQ being located in Porthcawl there was absolutely no chance I could refuse a twisted extreme horror tale by the author that’s set here.

Sporting the title ‘Wind-Up Toy’ (2016) I was expecting some sort of ramped-up ‘Chucky’ style horror only with a Welsh edge.  What I got was something entirely different.  Hughes offers up a cocktail of sordid depravity mixed with lashings of brutal and sadistic violence.  Trust me - this is not for the squeamish or easily offended.  It’s sleazy and uncompromising.
