Review by: Simon Wood on Oct. 5, 2010 :
This is a wonderful collection of short horror stories. Joel Arnold's tales focus the darkness of the human soul instead of relying on blood and gore, because of this, the stories really strike a chord. The best story in the collection is SOME THINGS DON'T WATCH OFF, which is about a black tattoo artist giving a neo Nazi his final piece of skin art. Well worth checking out.
