When their car broke down in a dangerous neighborhood, Kerri and her friends thought they would find safe shelter in what they thought was an old abandoned row house. They were wrong on all counts. The residents of the row house live in the cellar and rarely come out in the light of day. They're far worse than anything on the streets outside. And they don't like intruders. Before the sun comes up, Kerri and her friends will fight for their very lives...though death is only part of their nightmare.

    " I'm not squeamish, but this book had some gross-outs! "

    " I knew this was an homage to Ed Lee, and it does deliver! Especially for a mass market. This is my first Brian Keene book, and I was not disappointed. "

    " This was a quick and entertaining read, although I got the impression that Keene didn't expend as much time or thought on it as he has on his previous novels. There were some lapses in logic and continuity that seemed rushed or forced; for example, on page 18 he describes the front door knob as being cut crystal, but on page 63 it's brass. The plot is simple horror film fare about teenagers being trapped in a haunted house, but it's spiced a bit with some commentary about race relations and urban decay. "

    " The most vulgar disgusting book I've ever read. By page 260 I was just skimming through because I was getting so frustrated with how wordy and descriptive it was getting after having heard about the man wearing a woman skin suit with a penis coming out of the tanned vagina and literal mind-fucking over and over. The characters are pathetic and under-developed. There's weak attempts of trying to get more information about them however they all seem the same and it's not worth really recalling all these related memories they keep falling back on. I'm not a prude but I don't enjoy a lot of cussing in novels I read. Characters dropping f-bombs is one thing but using in within the narrative is just tacky and immature. There is some small review on the book's back cover saying Brian Keene is the next Stephen King.. if so horror writing is really going down the toilet in this day and age. "

    " I have really enjoyed several of Keene's books, Including "The Rising" and "Darkness on the Edge of Town". I enjoy Keene's writing style, though it seems to me that several phrases and words (like 'gristle')are used over and over. My favorite thing about this book is that is never hesitates to be as disgusting and brutal as possible. As a person who can not stand to watch or listen to things like this, texts written in such a style help me to explore the morbidly curious part of my mind. The characters die off at a pace that does not allow for much development, but I'll excuse that, since the book is relatively short and mainly focused on plot. Overall, I found the book to be an interesting, quick read that did what it meant to do. Far from memorable (to me at least), but worth the time spent. "

    " Straight up the most weird and filthy and disgusting horror novel i have ever read. and i have read a lot. my only complaint, it coulda been about twice as long and it woulda scored higher. characterization was just lacking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 12/18/2013

    " graphic and horrifying book! Well done Brian scary ass book that holds no punches. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana | 12/16/2013

    " Not really my type of book, thought it was a haunted house book, but it was more blood and gore. Teenagers go into haunted house, not many come back out. The only reason I finished was to see who was left standing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 11811 (Eleven) | 11/22/2013

    " My IQ dropped nine points over the course of this novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 9/8/2013

    " Wow, a "horror" book that actually scared me! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 7/20/2013

    " This kept me awake all night. Read it, then couldn't sleep. Absolutely amazing. "

    " There was not resolution and after reading this book I felt dejected and overwhelmed by 'Why?'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 That70sheidi | 6/18/2012

    " Pretty gross (which is good) but a little draggy in some places, and the audiobook narrator was absolutely not right for this book - his "urban youth" characterization was atrocious. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Keith | 11/24/2011

    " This story seemed more like Keene was writing a screenplay to sell than an actual horror story. I have read other Keene and enjoyed it but not this one. I want to be thrilled and intrigued and this book was just gross. I expected more and that may be why I am so hard on this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nora | 6/24/2011

    " This book is so sick, it's beautiful. It's Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets The Hills Have Eyes meets the raw grittiness of Jack Ketchum's The Girl Next Door. If you're faint of stomach, leave your lunch at the door. This story is why I love to write. A must read for any serious horror enthusiast. "

    " This was my first Brian Keene book and I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. It draw me in from the 1st page and keep me on the edge of my seat until the very end. I am looking forward to reading more books from this author. "

    " I enjoyed the book, as it contained some like-able characters and a decent amount of gore! Great ending. Makes you think what's below your floorboards. "

    " Plenty of gore but the story was slow at times and it was rather predictable. Not Keene's best work.
