This story works well for what it is. It has a certain self-awareness about the dark absurdity of its premise, which is fun. You don't see too many stories about killer pumpkins, either.

This story was filled with gore and juicy mayhem! It's not for the faint-hearted, but I had fun reading it and really liked the original take on a traditional holiday. And I'll sure never touch another pumpkin!

Very descriptive, for sure. I don't think I'll be carving anymore pumpkins -- but if you like short horror, this is a good one.

This is my first tale from Lacey, and I was pleasantly surprised. Her style of writing here reminded me of my own style. I felt like I was a kid watching a Halloween kid's special, eating candy from the days catch, and then I found myself spooked by the carved pumpkins that made their home on the porch to my grandmothers house. This tale begins pleasant, but then has a smooth flow into the darkness. This is a must read for horror fans, and if you want something to share with the older kids on a Halloween night.

I probably would not let kids read this. With that out of the way, big kudos to Lacey for this dark and twisted take on a time-honored and innocent ritual, one we all know well (or do we?).Who would expect the lowly pumpkin to get even like this? I found this story impossible to stop reading and I was tickled in my scary place by its gruesome ending. Great story, keep em coming!!

This story is quite gruesome, so I would not read it to small sensitive children. However, I used to organize Halloween parties in my cottage in the woods for older kids, and I can imagine that this story would fit in perfectly. Most children are too wild on such occasions and would not listen to anything longer. The length of this ebook seems just optimal for these purposes. Many children love gory stories such as this one and I don’t see anything wrong with that. It’s just a harmless Halloween fantasy.

What I find really intriguing about this story is that it combines several elements in a very unusual way. First of all, it’s about a 12-year-old boy, so I sort of expected some sort of a happy ending and was surprised not to find it. Second, Bob tells Peter to to be careful with the knife because he does not want his son to chop off his fingers -- and something much worse happens later, even though the boy is careful and does not disobey in any way. The cause of the whole tragedy is Peter’s gory imagination. The scary things he creates for fun come to life to haunt him and to destroy him and his close ones. In this sense the story is much deeper than it may seem at first sight. Does it not happen to all of us that our dark games sometimes get out of our hands? Aren’t our own fantasies more powerful than we sometimes? Don’t creatures try to take revenge on their Creator more often than we care to admit?

This was a short horror story in which some killer pumpkins come to life and carve up the people who carved them. Not very nice really!

This short story is perfect for those with a wild craving for sadistic adventure. A very well-written and creative Halloween tale. Can't wait to see what Miss Lacey Lane brings to life next!

This story had an interesting twist that I did not see coming. This would be a great spooky story to tell at a Halloween party, or on Friday the 13th.

This was a rather revolting story. The dialogue was a little stilted, the pacing erratic and contained some fairly basic grammatical errors, particularly with comma usage. I'm not quite sure what the reviewers below would give a Stephen King novel when they give this story 5 stars. A story needs more than gore and suffering to make it worth reading.

This book was very impressive as you didn't know what was going to happen until it happened. Hopefully there will be more like this, also didn't expect the ending.

This is a great horror short story. I doubt I will view Pumpkins the same as I did before I had read this. And that's sad, being Halloween is my favorite holiday.
