***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Actor/musician Ted Parker brings you Freakshow, a combination of dark horror/dark comedy in eleven morbid tales you won’t soon forget. You will see people drained of their blood and their souls as each are sucked out by frightening, supernatural means. You will revisit the Vietnam War. You will appease the bloodlust of space aliens or they will destroy Earth! If you are disturbed by (words describing) the sight of blood and gore, then try not to vomit as you read Freakshow! You will: SEE! the burning boy! SEE! the demonically possessed toilet bowl! LEARN! how to make human pizza! WITNESS! the most bizarre suicide ever reported! SCREAM!…just scream, already Get Freakshow now…or the normals win!
This has very much a Tales from the Crypt sort of feel to it with twisted endings and very dark overtones. The biggest let down to me was that some of the stories are so short that sometimes it feels like things are over before you have even really had time to grasp what is going on. Where Ted excels though is his off the wall thinking which is why I ended up settling for a 4 stars for this one. I do have a soft spot for the extremely warped and twisted and this is certainly that!
