REVIEW: Creepy Christmas

Creepy Christmas
By Toby Bennett

Genre: Christmas, Horror
Year published: 2013
Pages: 49

Date read: 12/6/13

Summary: A ghoulish collection of zany and macabre tales that you can use to while away the long hours until it’s time to take the tree down again.

Thrill to “The Chimney Trap” – A boy sets out to catch Santa but what is really in that cage on the roof?

Howl at the sound of “Santa’s Paws” an interlude with werewolves based entirely on a weak pun.

Stuff yourself with the macabre contents of “Someone always feeds the children” – blind cannibals and a squirming Christmas dinner.

Feel the mounting fear of the man who truly discovered Santa in his monolithic tomb, “That is not dead that makes us eternal buy”!

Or just get away from it all in the sun with the “Recreational Vampire”

Something for everyone – as long as everyone likes five types of stories in: Toby Bennett’s Creepy Christmas.

My thoughts

Another collection of short Christmas stories with a horror twist.  I can't even decide which one is my favorite, but I guess I'll go with The Chimney Trap and Someone Always Feeds the Children.  The last one, which the author says he put in for some Boxing Day fun, is called the Recreational Vampire - that one cracked me up.
