    Another novella in the extreme horror category, although I do have to ask how they decide it’s extreme because in most cases, it ain’t what I would call extreme. I mean have they never read Edward Lee or Wrath James White, now that’s fucking extreme and this, well I beg to differ.   Home Intruder starts off catapulting rapidly out of the blocks with the first chapter, our intruder stalks couples who obviously love each other deeply and then intrudes in every sense of the word, torture, rape and im Another novella in the extreme horror category, although I do have to ask how they decide it’s extreme because in most cases, it ain’t what I would call extreme. I mean have they never read Edward Lee or Wrath James White, now that’s fucking extreme and this, well I beg to differ.   Home Intruder starts off catapulting rapidly out of the blocks with the first chapter, our intruder stalks couples who obviously love each other deeply and then intrudes in every sense of the word, torture, rape and impossible choices concerning your loved one are the order of the day. The start has some suitably wincing moments and we then take the foot of the gas a little as our not so friendly visitor stalks a new couple.   Edward and Jazmine Sullivan inherit a seaside property in Cornwall, they make their way down there from London to get the place ready for sale. It’s the house Ed grew up in and they run into his old flame and her boyfriend, a couple of wasters who force themselves into the picture with a curry and alcohol.   Our Intruder does what he does best, a good bit of intruding and suddenly he’s taken the loving couple and the ex, Linda hostage. Queue a little bit of psychological horror, violence and a continuity error that in a novella just shouldn’t happen. It’s criminal.   Linda who is unconscious at the kitchen table after having her bonce driven into said table is suddenly running off down the hall trying to escape and then after this failed attempt she’s back to her unconscious state. It was of course Jaz who ran down the hall and when she reaches the door, her head is rammed into the fine piece of timber and she is pulled backwards by her hair to land on her back, then dragged by her hair back into the kitchen. Sounds quite fucking painful if you ask me but the guy is a psychopath and intruding is the order of the day. Story cuts somewhere else for a short time and its back to Jaz whose stomach is in agony because of the way she’s been dragged, hang on a minute, what’s going on here, doesn’t sound right to me, she was dragged back like a sack of potatoes and of course she must of flipped over mid-drag. That’s it, no that’s fucked up. Didn’t sit right to me.   Along with a couple of other small errors, it sort of ruined it a little for me and it was disappointing after such a promising start but errors like that in a piece under a 100 pages are basic stuff. That said there’s some promise here and I think I’ll give Sam West another go, just the one anyway.   Also posted at http://paulnelson.booklikes.com/post/...

    I guess it should've told me something when i was 49% done and the psycho killer was just now ringing the door bell. Add to that, that the kindle said it was 46 minutes left in the book. So I only have myself to blame for thinking it wouldn't end as abruptly as it did. Everything was a big game of who would you rather hurt once the psycho arrived. But a rather short lived game.

    Good short story, although somewhat predictable. My next book to read by Sam is Djinn, and I hope he steps up his game. Otherwise, I'm done.

    I got my Kindle Unlimited subscription renewed a couple days ago, and I accidentally found this author, Sam West, while looking for any titles from Matt Shaw that I might have missed in the past couple months. Amazon said… ‘Oh, you like this twisted stuff? Here, try THIS guy. He might make you puke!’ There are five novellas available, I grabbed this one first only because it’s the first one Amazon recommended. The synopsis, and the words ‘Extreme Horror Novella’ grabbed my attention right away.

As far as torture goes, Sam West is pretty original. Probably a bit unstable, too. (You know I’m teasing!) I learned a new phrase – “The back of beyond”. I like it. It sounds a little more civilized than BFE ;) I can’t wait to read the other four books! Join the discussion on BBB!

    During the prologue of this Novella, I was thinking whoa, maybe I should find a seat belt. This is gonna be an intense ride! Then, the main story started and disappointed me from the beginning. The way that Jason was introduced to the story was quite silly to me and I felt that Linda, and all the other characters for that matter besides Ed and Jaz were created solely to increase the story's kill count with no real meaning. I guess I'm trying to say that the story lacks any real depth, and the During the prologue of this Novella, I was thinking whoa, maybe I should find a seat belt. This is gonna be an intense ride!

I guess I'm trying to say that the story lacks any real depth, and the depth that is does allow is shallow and insignificant. I'm not trying to portray that I disliked this book! I thought it was ok. It just didn't live up to it's own title and synopsis. Another thing I would like to touch on is the "Extreme Horror" in the title and title like it. We seriously need to come up with an esrb type rating for horror books because this wasn't extreme to me. I equate this book to a movie like panic room or phone booth (sorry). Everybody has a different sense of extreme and I feel my threshold must be near the top because I'm consistently disappointed by books with this claim. Give this book a try and form your own opinion. It a quick read. Tell me: Are my Horror expectations set too high?

    Nothing really happened until the last chapter, seemed a bit rushed,

    Simply horrible Besides needing an editor, the author needs to learn about suspense, conflict and imagery. The only horror is that I paid for this drivel.

    I'm always curious when a book is labeled "extreme horror," a subset of the horror genre which I greatly enjoy. Naturally, I had my hopes up. Unfortunately, this book didn't quite deliver. The story started out well enough, with a brutal scene of torture and torment, though it did annoy me a bit that the entire prologue was italicized. Nevertheless, it held promise. Hope for further "extreme horror" rapidly faded as the story became more of a soap opera for the first half of the book. Entertainin I'm always curious when a book is labeled "extreme horror," a subset of the horror genre which I greatly enjoy. Naturally, I had my hopes up. Unfortunately, this book didn't quite deliver. The story started out well enough, with a brutal scene of torture and torment, though it did annoy me a bit that the entire prologue was italicized. Nevertheless, it held promise. Hope for further "extreme horror" rapidly faded as the story became more of a soap opera for the first half of the book. Entertaining, sure, but not remotely horrific. Then, finally, Jason Jacks, the crazed psychopath credited with inflicting the gore within the prologue, pays a visit to the main characters, Edward and Jazmine Sullivan. The Sullivans are a happily married couple--precisely the type Jacks preys upon as he torments them with his "how much do you love your spouse" twisted game. This time, however, Jacks has invited another person to the party. Edward's ex-girlfriend, who foolishly believes that she can have Edward again, joins in the fun. And then things just go from blah drama to urggghhh frustration. Jacks is not believable as a seasoned serial killer due to his stupid choices. And speaking of stupid choices, a LOT of them are made by practically every single character introduced. I wanted to bang my head against my iPad screen. I don't mean to be harsh, I guess the disappointment is unleashing my usually-well-hidden nasty streak. The bottom line is, this book had a ton of potential but didn't rise to the challenge. I would definitely not classify it as extreme horror. In my opinion, psychological horror/thriller would be more apt. I might try another book by this author but I'll wait until my mood improves...!

    Not the most original ideas within the genre, but I found it really well executed. The opening scene will seem a bit cliché, if you are familiar with works by Richard Laymon, Edward Lee, Wrath James White, JF Gonzalez, Poppy Z. Brite, Jack Ketchum and company. However, as soon as the story starts, Sam West shown to have a very good control over the building of the atmosphere, the characters and, mainly, how to deliver gruesome and violent scenes of high tension. I also really liked how he ended Not the most original ideas within the genre, but I found it really well executed.

If you, like me, is a fan of horror, more specifically, a splatterpunk fan , you should check out this little book.

    A fantastic read. Very unsettling, with unpleasant scenes from the start. Sam clearly wanted to demonstrate from the first chapter that the protagonist is capable of anything, and as he then builds up the story around the main characters you know you are in for an unpleasant ride. This really is an extreme horror novella. I look forward to reading more books by Sam. Highly recommended if you like extreme horror.

    Couldn't put it down Very captivating. Non stop action. No time to get bored. Around every turn, something happened, or was working up to something. Have read at least 8 of these extreme horror books, and seen some topics over again. Not this one!

    Wow I and bizarrely drawn to read this author's books then I'm almost sorry. Like coming up on a car wreck and having to look .Horror in a whole new light .Monsters but the real life type, monsters are real and living among us.

    Sam's Done It Again Disturbing material, that which haunts the pages in this book. Scariest is that it could happen to a couple, and similar things have gone down. Not a dull moment and not for the squeamish.

    Pretty good. Story, gore and violence where ok but I wouldn't class it as extreme.
