I didn’t go into this novel for something of emotional depth; I was not looking for a story with well-done subtext or fully fleshed characters. Having read a string of literary novels, I wanted something grisly and fast and raunchy. Jack Ketchum is that guy. And I got what I was looking for. Havin...

They were fierce, brutal and relentless. They were human but they acted like monsters, not stopping for anything once they got started. It was the flesh of the dead that gave them their power but they needed victims, a steady supply of them, to keep their group thriving. Oh, I enjoyed this one. It...

I read some of Ketchum's fiction back in the '90s, and what I remember is that his stories were brutal, and psychological. He didn't tend to write much supernatural horror, instead focusing on things that could actually happen. They were also fairly graphic, which seemed at the time to be pretty cut...

One does not read Jack Ketchum to be entertained. So why would someone pick up a Ketchum book? I haven't a fucking clue. Like the late, great Richard Laymon, Jack Ketchum is a diabolical motherfucker. He knows how to make skin crawl and stomachs turn. Each one of his books is the literary equivalent...

I don't know what to say about this. It was the unexpurgated edition. I suppose for it's time it was shocking, but it seems a little dated now. It is the lost cannibal tribe slasher cabin in the woods formula. I saw all the explicit grue, rape, sex, and pedophilia as just filler. A little less would...

Rating: 4 of 5 For what it's intended to be, Off Season succeeds; thus, I rate it four stars. If I was rating purely on my personal (yes subjective) level of enjoyment, I'd rate it somewhere around two and a half stars. Perhaps I should've waited longer to experience Ketchum's Dead River world...
