Like most of Curran's works, Nightcrawlers is big on atmosphere, detailed descriptions, Lovecraftian overtones, and gross-out horror. Unlike most of Curran's works, Nightcrawlers is extremely light on memorable characters or their any kind of decent development. Instead, the reader is tasked to deal...

I was saving all my Curran reads for some unknown day in the future when I was snowed in and unable to leave the house. However, a friend recommended I read it pronto. I did and found it lacking. The characters were ineffectual when it came down to me, the reader, caring about their outcomes. Where ...

I guess we all have different tastes and different attitudes to what we attribute as good horror. I hated this book, I found the story and the characters held little or no interest for me, and it just seemed to be a killing field of the good guy against the myth and the monster. I know many will dif...

This book was a BLAST! I don't even know where to start. This is old school, Lovecraftian horror at its finest. It even goes so far as to provide an imaginative explanation for this cosmic horror, which I loved. An old abandoned town causes talk. Especially when people are anywhere near this town,...

When a bulldozer unearths corpses in a field, it's up to the police to figure out what's going on. Out-of-towner cop Kenney wonders what the rest of the police aren't telling him, what all the townspeople know but are afraid to do anything about: the degenerate subterraneans that lurk in the tunnels...
