I finished WELCOME TO THE FUNHOUSE edited by Kelly Brocklehurst and Jamie Stewart from Blood Rites Horror today.

Normally, carnival horror is not my jam. For most of my life I have actually avoided carnival horror, to include Stephen Kingโ€™s IT. I remember as an adolescent being absolutely terrified of Tim Curryโ€™s rendition as the famous Pennywise in the original movie trailer and I vowed never to watch it. Thereโ€™s just something SO unsettling about carnival horror for me.

That being said, I bought a ticket for this show and wow did I get my moneyโ€™s worth. There are some bona fide creepy and disturbing stories in the fourth short story anthology from Blood Rites Horror. It is heavy on nostalgia and ties in emotional coming of age themes.

My favorite stories in this selection of tales are:

THE GOLDEN TICKETS by Roxie Voorhees ๐ŸŽซ
ANNA AND ABBY by L. PINE ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ
FAMILY OUTING by Briana Morgan ๐ŸŠโ€โ™€๏ธ

If you enjoy a good scare set against the backdrop of abandoned amusement parks, traveling circuses or water parks, look no further. ๐ŸŽก

For the sake of ratings I am giving this book 4 stars.
