Some stories can kill...
Italian director Nicolo Funelli's lost film comes alive when the maven of the macabre is released after twenty years of VHS imprisonment. New hire Annie Watkins's pre-emptive obituaries at Live @ 5 New Orleans News seem to be killing off famous people. A used delivery van causes Katie and Gavin's lives to take an unimaginable wrong turn into very dark territory. A teen orphan with a unique ability is held captive in a secret government lab, forced to submit to their whims. Vacationers become a grotesque part of the Easter festivities in a small English town.

These are just a handful of the 16 dark tales that await you in Video Nasties. Tune in, sit back, and turn up the terror. But don't touch that dial… it just might kill you.

This is a collection of sixteen short horror stories about different subjects. Some are gruesome, some are claustrophobic, others cause psychological horror. I found the quality level to be variable, and while I enjoyed some of them, others didn’t touch me.

Rick Gregory’s narration was adequate for this material, delivering the story without interfering, with a very clear diction and the right nuances to make the characters distinguishable. All in all, an enjoyable narration.

I would recommend this book to anyone into horror, and the format of the stories makes them perfect to listen to during short idle moments.

I received a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.
