What are you willing to do, what are you willing to become, to save someone you love?
Sierra Sowell’s dead brother Jeffrey is resurrected by a mysterious man known only as Corliss. Corliss also transforms four people in Sierra’s life into inhuman monsters determined to kill her. Sierra and Jeffrey’s boyfriend Marc work to discover the reason for her brother’s return to life while struggling to survive attacks by this monstrous quartet.
Corliss gives Sierra a chance to make Jeffrey’s resurrection permanent – if she makes a dreadful bargain. Can she do what it will take to save her brother, no matter how much blood is shed along the way?
Jeffrey Sowell was involved in a car accident, orchestrated by the man in the black suit……his head crushed and spine snapped…..dead instantly.
But Corliss, the man I the black suit….brings him back to life and sends him a year ahead…..but why?
Sierra, Jeffrey’s Sister, is still grieving the loss of her brother…..but then she sees him…!
This reminded me a little of Stephen King’s Needful Things, with a touch of the dark man from The Stand, but this is something marvellously different…..
Angry people get angrier, alcoholics get meaner and the creepy get so much creepier…..
Randal and his chucks is horrific….a smiley faced horror..
Stuart and his upgrade is a thing of nightmares….and the vagina dentata…..oh dear god!
Can Sierra fix this? Can she save her brother? But at what cost?
This is gory, unsettling and definitely strange and I loved every minute. It’s what a horror story should be and has reignited my love for the genre. Brilliant.
