Fiends by John Farris
Time to be absolutely fucking petrified. So these monsters look all weird and rictus-y when they have ivy or some plant around their necks, but when you remove it, they come back to life to wreak havoc, killing almost everyone.
Now, the tagline is troubling.
Enter a Holocaust of horror
As opposed to another type of Holocaust? I mean, I think it’s best to not use the Holocaust like this in the first place and be a bit more respectful, but if you’re going to do it, let it make sense.
That said, this book truly is the epitome of terrifying horror. I’m actually afraid to even throw it away, it may be cursed so as to unleash some fiends in my own life.
