12 short stories make up this collection, and honestly, it’s the best one I’ve read all year. There weren’t any fillers, which is why it was such a breeze to get through this book centralized around those strange neighbors, creepy townsfolk, or that obscure tenant. But it was so much more. Please allow me to dissect each one:
A FAMILY-FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD-Thomas has always been capable of delivering a knife-edged splatter punk entry. This time killer toys spread slaughter throughout a quiet suburban neighborhood, and they lay it on thick.
FINAL FEAST-A clever silent horror entry dealing with a cannibalistic neighbor.
INSURGENTS-This one was Rod Sterling cold. A veteran of war is dealing ptsd and all the baggage that comes with it-agoraphobia , hallucinations, and alcoholism. That, and the merciless souls he encounters.
MIRROR IMAGE-A couple move into a new home with a DIY handyman residing next door. At first, his skillfulness succors, only to petrify them in the end.
NIEGHBOUR HOOD-Another offering from across the pond. The blackmail segments were humorous and engaging, while the ending was unexpected and shocking.
DINNER DATE-A young woman moves into a new apartment complex, and without hesitation, accepts a dinner date with her neighbor. Bates showcases his usual sarcasm and absurdity with this one. I wasn’t disappointed.
WHY DOES RANDOLPH DRAW?-Well written, trippy, and has an atmospheric notion. I still recommend reading it, but it kind of stems away from the other chills and thrills.
SUNDAY NIGHT WHISKY-Interesting story within a story involving a teacher grading her English term papers.
SIXTEEN-Once again, the setting is an apartment building, and once again, it has a dinner date story line. I have read Goforth before, but he truly kicks ass with this offering. What’s interesting is the progression of the story; it starts with a precarious urban feel, immediately transitions into an elegant and ritzy vibe, and climaxes with what I can only compare to ‘Sentinal/Rosemary’s Baby.’ Amazing, and more splatterpunk.
PORNOGRAPHY-‘Sixteen’ is where the collection started to get a little raunchy, but this is where things get somewhat Erotic. This wasn’t really horror, but was suspenseful until the very end.
SOMEWHERE IN HERE-Creepy Home invasion story involving cell phones and spousal abuse.
DARKNESS HIDDEN-The longest one, and definitely a horrific conclusion to the anthology . A married couple recently move from the city to a Cornwallish village, and the husband immediately finds out that things are not as picturesque as they seem, particularly after attending the local carnival and participating in the local games!
(He's up to something, I know it!)
An outstandingly creepy collection.
No favorites, but stand outs (to me) include Ryan C. Thomas & Tim Lebbon. It felt like they had fun with this 😊

Who knows what goes on behind the net curtains? These tales give you some idea.... All expertly written and a delight to read.
I am looking forward to having the film version too, I hear great things about it!
