Sadie & Donnie's Side By Side Review of THE INSTITUTE by Stephen King

THE INSTITUTE Review by The Horror Hypothesis 

 

“Luke guessed you could get used to anything, it was a horrible idea.” -Stephen King

 

“No one who fully grasped the Institute's work could regard it as monstrous” -Stephen King 

 

Throughout his prolific career as an author, Stephen King has proven that he can deftly handle the horrors of institutionalization (RITA HAYWORTH AND THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION) and the complicated social dynamics of children (IT, THE BODY).  In his most recent novel, THE INSTITUTE, he blends...

Night Worms Get Savage: Mega Review Round Up!

The Night Worms Review Team loves to come together around a book. SAVAGES by Greg F. Gifune was a happy accident. I shared Matt's photo of SAVAGES to our group chat with a "Hey, this cover, huh?? Wow!"
And then Matt talked about how this was one of his favorite books and before you know it, we're all buying it and agreeing to read and review it as a big group.

Recently, I had the privilege of attending the 6th Annual Scares That Care Convention in Williamsburg, VA.  I was only there for a couple of hours, but I shared many of the same surreal experiences (Kane Hodder shook my hand) as fellow Night Worms contributor, Kallie, who did a fantastic write up of the event.  


During my visit, I attended a book reading led by Nick Mamatas and Maurice Broaddus.  Mamatas began their session by grabbing...

The Isaiah Coleridge Series REVIEW, by The Horror Hypothesis


”I was Oppenheimer’s dread in microcosm, a miniature atom bomb. A destroyer of small things. Not worlds, nothing so grand, but individual bodies, individual lives. In little more than a week I’d crossed purposes with mercenaries, gangsters, white supremacists, hillbilly moonshiners, gangbangers, and Feds. Blood had spilled.
