It is time to keep your appointment…with Fear!
A notorious serial murderer survives to perpetuate his deadly deeds…
Monstrous childhood memories resurface to plague a troubled soul…
A newly opened cinema may he inhabited by the spectre of a vintage movie star – or possibly something worse…
Violent teenage gang members encounter an even more terrifying threat in the woods…

Vampires, zombies, ghouls, monsters, and all-too-human psychos step out of the screen and secrete themselves between the covers of our latest creepy collection – more than 30 terror tales to frighten even the hardiest horror hounds! These petrifying pages contain spine-chilling stories galore, each one a sinister spin on characters or situations from classic and cult British horror movies. Haunted by Hammer? Agitated by Amicus? Tormented by Tigon? Then step this way – you sound like our perfect victim, erm, reader ….

David A. & Linden Riley (eds.) – Kitchen Sink Gothic

Posted by demonik on August 5, 2015

Blurb:
Coined in the 1950s, Kitchen Sink described British films, plays and novels frequently set in the North of England, which showed working class life in a gritty, no-nonsense, “warts and all” style, sometimes referred to as social realism. It became popular after the playwright John Osborne wrote Look Back In Anger, simultaneously helping to create the Angry Young Men movement. Films included Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, The Entertainer, A Taste of Honey, The L-Shaped Room and The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner. TV dramas included Coronation Street and East Enders. In recent years TV dramas that could rightly be described as kitchen sink gothic include Being Human, with its cast of working class vampires, werewolves and ghosts, and the zombie drama In the Flesh, with its northern working class, down to earth setting. In this anthology you will find stories that cover a wide range of Kitchen Sink Gothic, from the darkly humorous to the weirdly strange and occasionally horrific.
