About the Book
This chilling collection of modern horror stories is sure to have you peeking warily around corners and walking just a bit faster down dark streets. Full of both creepy events and morbid humor, The Bacchanal stands as a testament to humanity’s love of being afraid and of frightening others.
Humanity’s fear of the unknown and fascination with the supernatural are masterfully depicted in these eleven stories. Though the supernatural elements are the centerpiece of the collection, it is the believable actions of the ordinary humans, both evil and well-meaning, that will send shivers down readers’ spines.
5 out of 5 stars
This collection of horror stories was absolutely spine chilling. As the book description promises, these stories contain elements of the supernatural as well the horrors that humanity is capable of committing against each other.
Some of the stories did seem more formulaic and I could tell where the story was going. However, those stories are either well written enough that the story is still scary even when you know what is going to happen. Some of them also have a twist in the story.
If you are a fan of horror stories, of feeling chills run down your spine, then I definitely recommend The Bacchanal: And Other Horrific Tales.
