My review is for the physical copy of this book.
Short stories written by Aron Beauregard.
I like the gory book cover art for Aron Beauregard's books.
I like his writing style, vivid, disturbing, disgusting, macabre and brutal imagination.
I like Aron Beauregard's grotesque, very vivid, imaginative, graphically detailed, gory, fucked up books.
I like fictional brutality, fictional psychopaths, sadists doing disturbing, macabre, creepy, fucked up shit to their victims, but I understand why some readers would question the morality, mental health of the writers after reading extreme horror & splatterpunk books, but they are fictional, it's understandable that some readers think wtf did I just read? 😅
They don't know how to feel after reading a extreme horror & splatterpunk books that might traumatize them forever.
Check trigger warnings before reading extreme horror or splatterpunk books 👍

"𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐧𝐚𝐜𝐤 𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬" & Red-the owner of the business, is exploitative of Stanley who is the type of person to lack self-respect, integrity & doesn't want to cause any hassle with his boss Red, so he never complains, or stands up for himself.
He is weak, pathetic, a loser in my opinion.
Stanley is doing the equivalent work of two people & he is paid minimum wage by his boss Red, for a fictional company-"𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐧𝐚𝐜𝐤 𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬" there's one employer & one employee I don't understand why Stanley never stood up for himself/his rights as a employee, he just puts tolerates being treated like he is a stupid, incompetent, inept, worthless chump as a employee, it's pathetic.
If this happened in real-life, Red would be sued for wage theft, exploiting a somewhat vulnerable employee, that he sees as beneath him, a weakling, someone he can push around, bully or would tolerate their verbal & fiscal abuse & won't complain, due to the threat of being fired for being inept at their job.
I wish more fictional characters would have self-respect, inner strength, willpower, integrity, and stand up for themselves more often.
An underestimated, disrespected, very loyal employee, finally decides to stop tolerating the verbal, fiscal abuse from his boss & his gold digger girlfriend, he stands up for himself in the most sadistic, brutally, savage way possible which finally earned him his nickname "𝐏𝐬𝐲𝐜𝐡𝐨 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐧" & sinister reputation, respect from others he always wanted.
You don't fuck with Psycho Stan, otherwise he will make you the "𝐍𝐞𝐰 𝐂𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐲" in the vending machines.
Can you really blame Stanley for seeking sadistically brutal, bloody vengeance on Candy or Red?
It was satisfying to read what Stanley did to Candy, she deserved it.
She was ugly on the inside which made her ugly on the outside, I hate the way the Red and Candy treated Stanley, it was disgusting. Poor Stanley, he always deserved better.
It's not his fault that some people are a sadistic, cruel, emotional sadist, merciless & a piece of shit.
In my opinion, if something weird, creepy, disturbing or unexpected happened while Stanley was restocking the vending machines and then Aron Beauregard referred to that later on in the short story it would have made it more interesting and creepy to read.
Not much happens until page 14, it's very slow paced, a bit tedious to read, but that's my honest opinion.
I thought the short story might go in a completely different direction other than what happened.
I thought there was something in the food & drinks Stanley restocked in vending machines with that he didn't know about, because the supplier of the food & drink is unknown, but the book cover reveals what happened to Candy, rightfully so.

Emily seems like she would be the perfect type of person to be a parent, even if she was the overbearing, over protective, controlling type of parent.
The start of the short story about Emily's issues with dating are so relatable.
When you are old fashioned, chivalrous, romantic, spontaneous, creative and sensitive in the modern "hook-up" culture that encourages cheating it really sucks, it has a negative effect on dating and how people perceive men & women, dating & sex in general.
There are unknown and potentially hazardous effects of artificial insemination from a sperm donor, that might have lifelong unwanted consequences.
I like the plot twist about the sperm donor-Samuel Clovis, his psychotic, violent, unhinged behaviour, which maybe the result or either a psychotic episode, mental instability/mental illness or psychopathy.
You would think that sperm donation clinic would check for any mental instability, history or violent, domestic abuse or psychopathy but as far as I know, they don't check for that in the background check for any potential sperm donors.
Samuel's family were brutally mutilated, potentially tortured and murdered, he broke into the sperm donation clinic to steal personal records so he could find his son, who could have the same psychopathic genes as Samuel Clovis.
He may be responsible for his entire family's horrific deaths.
Samuel Clovis is delusional, a paranoid schizophrenic, that has auditory hallucinations that guide his delusional beliefs, purpose, mission in his life.
I wasn't expecting the scene with the drill or the second plot twist, but it's understandable, it's disgusting that a man would violate Emily's trust, and her body just so he could have a baby.
This has happened in real-life that women were artificially inseminated with a doctor's sperm with their knowledge or consent, it is a abuse of power, the position they have as a doctor, it is a total violation of any women's body and trust.

In this short story the father & son housesitting for Joyce there's no explanation for why they are house-sitting for Joyce unless it's to take care of her cat.
The dad in the short story is a sexual sadist a alcoholic & a junkie, he is a bad influence on his son, he exposed his son at a young and impressionable age to violent, gory, sexually explicit horror films and pornography.
There is a weird vibe between the father and the son, he exposed his son to violent, gory, sexually explicit horror films and ponography, that they both originally helped them to bond as a father & don but now this once funny, amusing way to spend time with his dad is becoming weird, creepy, awkward.
The dad is aroused and pleased by the women in the films he is watching either having sex or crying, he is turned on by their pain, he's a sexual sadist.
I can understand from the son's perspective why his dad's behaviour, attitude towards women is problematic, if not disturbing, creepy in some ways, he seems like he has psychopathic, or serial killer tendencies, or the potential to be a serial killer due to how often he watches specifically violent, gory, sexually explicit content.
It sounds like a bad way to become addicted, obsessed, abd sexually aroused by violent content, like people that are curious about gore websites that depict violent deaths, accidents, murder of various people.
It's a slippery slope, a line or boundary not everyone will cross, since they may become fucked up due to content they are viewing, and it may have a irreversible effect on them forever, so they are mentally scarred by it forever.
It was funny to read what the dad thought about Joyce that she is "a real weird bitch that needs to get laid" or that she is "playing for the other team" since she resisted him when he tried to initiate having sex with her.
Maybe she just wasn't interested or attracted to him, that doesn't automatically mean a woman is a lesbian or bisexual just they rejected you, this way of think is immature, sexist & misogynistic.
I don't necessarily think a fictional or real-life woman is automatically a lesbian just because they own a cat, or because they turned down a unwanted sexual advance from a guy they weren't interested in or attracted to.
I like the name of the cat "𝐊𝐢𝐭-𝐊𝐚𝐭" 🙂
I wouldn't be able to sleep in a room that was absolutely full of creepy antique or porcelain dolls either, old fashioned Victorian dolls with porcelain faces creep me out, they look too realistic like they are alive but when your not looking at them or paying attention to them.
Who the fuck is sexually attracted, turned on, aroused by the decomposing, putrified, rotten remains of a animal or a person?
It's sick, insane and incomprehensible.
The son is a necrophile/necrophiliac- he has a sexual attraction, arousal to dead decomposing, putrefied, rotten remains of animals or people, so he has the sick desire to have sex with the imprisoned women that were tortured, abused, mutilated, maimed and left to decompose, rot and die in the secret, hidden part of Joyce's house.
He has the sexual desire to fuck the decomposed, putrefied corpses of the abused women or to fuck the abused, mutilated, maimed women while they are dying and he is physically harming them while he fucks them to death and murders the women.
He reminds me of the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer the "Milwaukee Cannibal"
He was fascinated & obsessed with roadkill, preserving dead, decomposing dead animals in formaldehyde, he was a necrophile, cannibal, rapists, serial killer.
Not many extreme horror and splatterpunk short stories or books have a true crime vibe.
The violence and gore in this fictional short story is on par with graphic depictions or real-life violence, torture, abuse, cannibalism, necrophilia in true crime books.
The man's son in the short story is a young, impressionable and a virgin that has very fucked up, sick, perverted, sexual desires and fantasies.
He is a necrophile, a sexual sadist.
It reminds me of a real-life American crime/murder.
A male teenager that was a virgin, he did some very fucked up, sick stuff to his mother, but the fact that the first person he had sex with was his mother's corpse is very sick & disturbing.
The age or name of either the father or the son is not specified, so i'm assuming that the man's son is a teenager.
Am I right to assume that Joyce was torturing, mutilating women because she wanted to create her own collection of "dolls" made with the corpses of her tortured, mutilated, dismembered female victims? 🤔

This short story was sad to read, it's not the fault of the elderly generations of people to have a disconnection with their children or grandchildren, since they are obviously from a completely different generation to them.
There is specific type of perception, a perceived idea about specific generations of various types of people. This story is sad & spooky.

𝐒𝐭𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧-
Travis & Wendy sound like they are true crime fans, they also seem like they would be interested in murderabilia, or 𝐔𝐫𝐛𝐞𝐱- (Urban Exploration of abandoned buildings, were disturbing things happened historically, or brutal murders, suicides occurred, the buildings, ruins, whatever the location is or was also has occult history, these locations most of the time are known to be haunted)
They seem like the type of couple that would go to torture museums, locations that were a crime scene, or associated with a serial killer.
There are true crime fans & there are Hybristophiles, which are completely different.
They seem like my kind of people, i'm also a true crime fan, I love anything that is dark, disturbing, creepy, macabre, any location that has occult history, anything that is unexplained-including unsolved serial killer cases.
Travis & Wendy are necrophiles, they have sex in the St. Louis Cemetery to consummate their wedding.
There is a difference between "𝐜𝐨𝐫𝐩𝐬𝐞-𝐩𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐭" (makeup-white pressed powder for the foundation, black eye shadow, black lipstick, sometimes fake blood is used) the makeup is supposed to resemble a corpse hence the term "𝐜𝐨𝐫𝐩𝐬𝐞-𝐩𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐭" that Dead from the Norwegian Death Metal band created.
Greasepaint makeup is the type of makeup used by clowns, party entertainers, it's totally different to "𝐜𝐨𝐫𝐩𝐬𝐞-𝐩𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐭" makeup.
I wouldn't be surprised if they became sadistic, serial killers.
The exhibition that is still under construction seems like it is a personal exhibit, that Drexel personally created himself, it's not ready yet, not quite fit for an audience.
It seems like a exhibition a serial killer would create and it reminds me of the gory, sadist serial killer in the films The Collector & The Collection-he made art out of the corpses of his victims that he "collected" for his collection for his macabre exhibition of mutilated corpses.
The disturbing footage shown in the back of the Museum of Death reminds of Faces of Death-real life gore content, gory, graphic details of real life deaths-murder suicides, accidental death.
People are curious, fascinated, interested by real-life gore, or anything that's macabre, creepy, disturbing hence why they want to view that type of content, visit Museums of Death, or why they are interested in truce crime, Murderabilia.
I don't like what happened to the babies/some of the animals-vivisection in the exhibition display case 🤢
The vivisection was graphically described, Drexel is a psychopath, he seems like he could become a serial killer with the help of the doctor performing vivisection & creating human-animal hybrids.

𝐃𝐢𝐝 𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐃𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐞 𝐢𝐭?-
Rex & Kendra have a mutual, consensual 𝐌𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫-𝐬𝐥𝐚𝐯𝐞 dynamic (a Dom/sub dynamic)
The type of dynamic/relationship they have is a power exchange, that is mutual, consensual, BDSM is not just about the sexual aspect of a dynamic or using people for sex, there's a lot more to it than that.
Rex is a sexual sadist and Kendra is a submissive, masochist, both are equally sexually deviant and share the same sexual fantasies, the same sexual perversion, sexual deviancy, but Kendra seems like she is a bit controlling as a submissive slave.
It's not fair to Kendra for Rex to expect her to be his submissive slave, when he already has a pregnant wife, I understand why Kendra would want their Master-slave dynamic to be exclusive & only involve them, with no outside interference from his wife.
𝐓𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐠𝐞𝐫 𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠: Trent sadistically murders his dog Polo.
Even if Kendra did have a lot of fuck buddies, that doesn't automatically mean that she deserved to be treated like she was nothing more than a disposable, worthless whore.
The plot twist at the end of the story, Trent is a psychopath & a serial killer, Rex got what he deserved, justified revenge.
I knew Rex was going to die in the story, Trent & Nick are disgusting.
I don't like that Kendra was referred to as "the Ferret"

𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐤𝐝𝐨𝐰𝐧-
There is a blizzard that is probably common in Minnesota, but I don't know much about that American state to be honest since i'm from England.
The relationship that Donna had wither her ex boyfriend Roy is abusive, he is a narcissist and he was tempted to physically abuse Donna, he is a piece of shit and it seems like he was just using Donna for his own smug satisfaction, sexual gratification.
It's not the most ideal situation to be in a blizzard/snowstorm and her car breaks down, either Donna can give up and die of natural causes in her car or choose to be brave if not foolish and try to seek help, which is several miles away and the potential risk of frostbite is imminent.
I'm not sure if the mustached man was generally trying to help the women with frostbite or if he is a sadist and a cannibalistic serial killer that likes to torture, mutilate his female victims, either way he is sinister, evil & creepy as fuck.
I thought that house that Donna found might belong to her abusive, arsehole ex boyfriend, which would have made sense in the short story.
The only house available nearby during a blizzard belonging to a sadistic, creepy stranger is just as bad. I like the plot twist about what was real, what was a delusion and what really happened to Donna in the house or the creepy, sadistic mustached man and if him & if the house on Solomon Road actually exits.

𝐌𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐚 𝐅𝐞𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠-
The child's aunt is clairvoyant, psychometry is the psychic ability to read the energy of any object, & reading the energy of the person the item belongs to so the child's aunt knew very specific things about people whenever she held personal items due to her clairvoyant visions.
I like the close connection/bond the child has with their aunt Mary.
Mary's clairvoyant vision was very detailed & it deeply disturbed & horrified her so she was naturally protective of her nephew and Derek.
I liked that Aunt Mary is clairvoyant, psychometry is interesting and unique.

𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐏𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐨𝐧 𝐃𝐨𝐞𝐬 𝐄𝐱𝐢𝐬𝐭-
A slow-paced short story, not much is happening in the plot, however the website "These people don't exist" is a real website, there is a conspiracy theory about it which is interesting.
I like some aspects of the plot, but the way it was executed & written made it a bit tedious to read.
Underwhelming is the way I would describe it.

𝐂𝐥𝐮𝐛 𝐇𝐞𝐥𝐥-
Some aspects of this short story were gross, the demon Botis is a Earl in the Ars Goetia of the Lesser Key of Solomon (17th century occult grimoire for invoking demons.
I like the character psycho, even if he is a fictional psychopath lol

A few of the short stories are about justified revenge, when you keep pushing a person's boundaries, limits or what is morally acceptable eventually the person with snap and they will enact their justified sadistic, cruel revenge, no one will see it coming or even expect it if they constantly underestimate you as a person.
They don't know what your full potential is or what you are truly capable of, underestimating people is very dangerous & can have fatal consequences.

My review is for a physical copy of the book that I own.
I like that the main characters are British, i'm British so it's relatable.
We call people "Mate" in England when we don't like someone, or have a disagreement with anyone. It's a common phrase.
It's used in a friendly banter context as well.
The alcohol consumption emboldens both the men and makes them feel empowered, they want to punch/beat up the bartender, but they would probably get their arses kicked by the bartender 😅
No man wants to be known as a "𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐩𝐮𝐦𝐩, 𝐜𝐡𝐮𝐦𝐩" or they are considered only good enough for a "𝐩𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐟𝐮𝐜𝐤" either it would be embarrassing and damaging to the pride, ego or reputation of any man.
I like the artwork that is used in this extreme horror novella.
Ben is a sexually adventurous, free spirited and sexually liberated type of person, while Mikey seems more reserved, probably more shy and self conscious.
Due to being a sex-crazed maniac, a pervert sex fiend that Ben is, it's his idea to ring the phone number in sex ad in the back-page section of the magazine, which has disastrous, unknown & unwanted consequences.
It's supposed to be a prank, but they picked the wrong cuck/cuckold to fuck with.
Ben seems like the type of person to act on his impulses, then think about the consequences of his actions afterwards, when it's already too late.
The creepy older man is a cuck/cuckold and a voyeur, he likes watching his wife Bessie being pleasured by unsuspecting strangers.
Due to his age and her bigger figure, he is unable to fulfill her sexual needs so, the sex ad was made for this exact purpose.
Ben & Mickey get more than they bargained for though, they aren't exactly comfortable or happy with the voyeuristic, cuck older man, sitting in a dark corner watching what they are doing with his wife Bessie for his and her sexual gratification.
I like the artwork that is used in this extreme horror novella.
The cuck has a demonic, lustful, cannibalistic vibe, the old man seems like he is possessed by a demon or something is attached to him because he doesn't seem fully human in my opinion.
He has weird black eyes, filed down sharp teeth and a weird tongue.
There us something strange, creepy and unsettling about the cuck, he seems like he is a soulless vessel for a predatory, lustful demon.
It's creepy how he has invaded the minds and thoughts of Mickey & Ben and that he was in the same room as Ben while he was having sex with Olivia, the fact that he disappeared makes he supernatural, beyond being a mere human being.
Mickey is a relatable character, he isn't the predatory, pushy type of creep towards women but his friend Ben is a sex-addicted, pervert in comparison 😅
I like Aron Beauregard's writing style, i'm glad I bought a few of his books, I look forward to reading the rest of his disturbing, graphically violent, macabre books 🤘🙂

Mickey is a lit tougher than I originally thought he was, but he is still more caring than Ben.
But Mickey has a hidden darkside, that is expressed every time he has to defend his friend Ben, protect him or clean up his messes when he gets himself into any trouble.
The cuck is either a shapeshifter, he is soulless and possessed by a entity, or a demon but more specifically a incubus- (a sex demon)
Demons have to be invited in, they know if your sexually repressed, they know that you suppress/repress your sexual desires and what you secretly desire, the aspects of yourself that your ashamed of and hide from other people.
They know a lot about humanity, specific people in general, without people having to tell them anything.

He asks for permission to watch people engage in extreme, potentially violent, sadistic sex, he feeds on their sexual energy, sexual desire and over time he influences various people, controls & influences their thoughts, behaviour, the perception they have of themselves, he partially possess them so they will enact self mutilation for his sick, perverse sexual gratification and pleasure.
They have no memory of this happening so they were partially possessed.
The cuck drains the energy of anyone he watches have sex, every time he watches people have sex or pleasure themselves he is feeding on their sexual energy, sexual desire and it's making him stronger, so every tine he is seen he has a much stronger influence, energy, power and control over his victims.
He influences people to engage in their sexual desires, fantasies and their
self-destructive impulses to mutilate themselves.
Sexual pleasure and physical pain is something demons like.
The cuck seems like he would feel drawn to people that are submissive, a masochist, a painslut, people that are into BDSM, people that are self-destructive, or people that are a sexual sadist, serial killer, a rapist.
I'm curious if the cuck watches people masturbate? 🤔
The cuck would preys on people and attaches itself to anyone that has experienced, pain, trauma, people that are addicted to sex because they are easier to influence, control, manipulate, possess and drain the energy of them.
I liked reading this book, it was interesting, the plot was unique and I liked the plot twists, it's a good book to read but maybe not for everyone due to gore.

Sadistic and cruel. Geraldine and Mr. Fuchs create the most hellish playground imaginable. All because of the lust of something Geraldine can't have. Parents forced to watch while their children struggle to stay alive. Nothing more to say other than ghoulish.
