Ted Parker certainly has a twisted imagination and those looking for something dark and morbid will certainly find that here. Personally I could have done without the weird Carnival tie in attempt at the beginning and kept it just a book of bizarre short stories.
This has very much a Tales from the Crypt sort of feel to it with twisted endings and very dark overtones. The biggest let down to me was that some of the stories are so short that sometimes it feels like things are over before you have even really had time to grasp what is going on. Where Ted excels though is his off the wall thinking which is why I ended up settling for a 4 stars for this one. I do have a soft spot for the extremely warped and twisted and this is certainly that!
