Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on April 14, 2013 :
Really good short story this one. As someone interested in myhs and legends I found this tale of the jikininki truly fascinating.

I particularly liked the idea of the creature still retaining most of it’s humanity and in no way being the blood-lust flesh eating zombie killer that most horror story writers seem to go for. Instead their was an intelligence and understanding to the jikininki which makes the reader feel some sympathy for it and the predicament that it finds itself in.

To sum up_this was an excellently written story, told at just the right pace, with an original plot that grips you from start to finnish. Really good stuff.

Review by: Rob Wilkins on April 2, 2013 :
A light horror tale, the only problem I have with it is that it feels like there could be so much more story here! The character is interesting, and it feels like the kind of thing you might find in a Japanese or South Korean horror movie. But what's here is compelling and interesting, and has a squirmy feel to it that is delivered very well. Another great read from this collection.
