GRAVEWORM

GRAVEWORM - Tim Curran I almost didn't read this one because I was a bit turned off both by the cover of the book and by the title, thinking it was B-movie type monster horror. Once, I dug into the novel and got past the sudden burst of gore that kicks it off, I realized that the cover and title were metaphoric representations of what was happening, I settled, as much as you can settle, into a disturbing tale of human behavior.

Curran follows a thread straight from the tradition of "Psycho" but adds to it layer upon layer of incredibly uncomfortable and disturbing ideas. If "Psycho" was considered the scariest movie ever at the time of its release, "Graveworm" would have caused general apoplexy among its audience.
