Full Blown Panic Attack
Full Blown Panic Attack rated it 2 weeks ago
It took me a long time to get around to writing this review, mostly because I didn't want to think about this book anymore. I had plans of writing something long and in depth, but instead I will keep this short and to the point. Cuts can be summed up in one word: Tits....or breasts, if that word ...

There is no filler in Laymon's writing. The sentences are short and very seldom is there any semblance of craft in the them. I don't say this as a bad thing, just a fact. Laymon gets right to the point, and that lends itself to a novel that I read in a blink. I've read some previous books by Laymo...

As I was listening to this, I came to realize that I've read it before. A few things, like the name Julian Striker and one of the character's sisters rang a bell with me. Other than that, because I have a mind like a steel sieve, the rest of the story seemed new, so I went with it. Now that's it ove...

3 best friends spend the day trying to figure out how to get in to see the female vampire in a traveling side show. They spend the day freaking out over weird happenings. Things get weirder when they get to the show. I don't think the sister-in-law, Lee, was very realistically written, even cons...

I am a big fan of Laymon and have been for a number of years. I have read most of his work and have enjoyed them all. I did enjoy this story, however, I did feel that this was one of his weaker works. It sort of lacked that Laymon intensity. If you enjoy cheesy B-movie horrors and thrillers then I w...

4.5 stars rounded up! Wow! This was my first Richard Laymon novel and I was not disappointed. I know Laymon has a bit of a bad reputation (as in, he’s known for writing trashy horror), so I was a bit hesitant when starting this short tale of a few people lost in the woods and on the run from an in...

From one of the all-time horror greats, comes Savage - a historical fiction / adventure / thriller / western. Huh? Not at all what I expected. And that wasn't a bad thing at all, just a different vibe from the usual Laymon bloodbath. Don’t worry, it still had the appropriate amounts of shredded fles...

Old, dried up, cracked rubber. Come on dude. Get your sh*t together. You need that rubber, man. Like, bad. Like, right now. Thank God for the Spee-D-Mart down the street. 10 minutes. Tops. Then you and Sherry can bump uglies until the sun comes up. That is if you can make it home from the store at a...

While it is still a decent horror read, Night Show is a rather average, middle-of-the-stacks title from Richard Laymon that does nothing to showcase the man's true splatterpunk madness.The novel's best scenes are dumped in opening chapter, which sees beautiful young Linda abducted by a carload of te...

I feel this is a classic Laymon book, so if you have read anything by him before and liked it then you're likely to enjoy this one too.There is plenty of action and gore, so not really for the squeamish . Laymon does a good job in describing the characters, which quite often have a cheeky comment ev...
