Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin’ is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop and his obedient nuns where she is to be tamed into a “good girl.” However, Darlin’ holds a dark secret and she is not traveling alone. The Woman, equally fierce and feral, who raised her, is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.
Continuing the twistedly vicious adventure of Lucky McKee’s cult hit The Woman, Darlin’ sees standout star Pollyanna McIntosh both in front of and behind the camera.
Based on characters created by Jack Ketchum and Lucky McKee
Executive Producers: Jack Ketchum and Lucky McKee
Written and Directed by Pollyanna McIntosh
An older, reclusive man, Avery, (Brian Cox) has a best friend in his dog Red. When three teens kill Red for no reason, Avery sets out for justice and redemption, attempting to follow the letter of the law. But when the law fails him, and the boys’ father (Tom Sizemore) clearly defines right and wrong in his own way, Avery must use whatever means possible.
In a quiet suburban town in the summer of 1958, two recently orphaned sisters are placed in the care of their mentally unstable Aunt Ruth (Emmy® winner Blanche Baker of Holocaust). But Ruth s depraved sense of discipline will soon lead to unspeakable acts of abuse and torture that involve her young sons, the neighborhood children, and one 12-year-old boy whose life will be changed forever. William Atherton (Die Hard), Catherine Mary Stewart (Night of the Comet) and Grant Show (Melrose Place) co-star in this devastating drama adapted from the controversial best seller by Jack Ketchum that Rue Morgue Magazine called one of the most disturbing reads in the history of horror literature.
This documentary explores how death is perceived by group horror professionals and its influence on their work. Includes interviews and insights from Troma head honcho Lloyd Kaufman, Artist Bob Fingerman, Jack Ketchum, special effects artist Tom Sullivan (Evil Dead), and Scream Queens Debbie Rochon and Caroline Munro (Dr. Phibes, Maniac), along with a host of many other others.
Für diese Festa-Sammlerausgabe hat Jack Ketchum noch selbst seine besten Erzählungen ausgewählt, bevor er im Januar 2018 überraschend starb. Leider hat er es nicht mehr geschafft, diese Ausgabe auch zu signieren.
34 Erzählungen in deutscher Erstveröffentlichung. Geschichten voller Schrecken, die mehr als nur Unterhaltungsliteratur sind. Ketchum steigt tief hinab in die dunklen Abgründe der Psyche.
Stephen King nannte Jack Ketchum den »furchteinflößendsten Autor Amerikas«. Seine Storys werden dich ängstigen und einige sind so verstörend, dass du das Buch einfach zur Seite legen musst, bis sich dein Pulsschlag wieder normalisiert hat.
For this collector’s edition from Festa, Jack Ketchum personally selected his best stories before he unexpectedly passed away in January, 2018. Unfortunately he was unable to sign this edition. This book contains 34 stories published in German for the first time.
These stories are full of horrors that are more than just entertaining literature. Ketchum descends deep into the dark abyss of the psyche. Stephen King called Jack Ketchum “America’s most frightening author.”
These stories will not only scare you but some are so disturbing that you will have to put the book aside until your heart rate returns to normal.
