What the Critics Say

"Necro Files is practically perfect. Every story is an absolute hit...and why not? We're talking John Everson, Bentley Little, Edward Lee, Joe Lansdale and George R. R. Martin, to name a few. All of the stories are dark and disturbing in their own ways, and, well, extreme. This is one anthology that horror fans, not just of the extreme variety, should have in their collections. Highly recommended." (Monster Librarian)

Sex, gore and endless boredom

This has nothing to do with horror. It is al about how much gore one can squeeze into a story, because otherwise all that is left are some bored rednecks, hanging out together, a fore a on the search of true love (yes, seriously - it could be written by an emo teen), a family that can't cope with the death of a loved one and similar, endless, mundane tripe. Every female described immediately turns into a sex object and how the speaker would or wouldn't like to copulate with her. Most is endless monologues of people with more lebensschmerz than sense. If you've every read "The trials of the young W." which shot Goethe to stardom and which he would later do anything to make disappear - it is essentially that with more guts and brain smears and nakedness. If you now jump in proclaiming "But 'The trials of the young W' is one of the most whiney and pointless examples of ROMANTIC literature, not horror!!!" you have come upon the crux of the matter.

I should add that I have only managed to finish two short stories, both of which I almost immediately regretted, due to the utter pointlessness of it. The rest I've skipped through. None of scared me or even creeped me out. Unnecessary disgust might be the strongest emotion alongside mind numbing boredom I've experienced so far. Do yourself a favour and save your money.

Three good stories - the rest very disappointing

I stupidly ignored the bad reviews of this - but the fact is that it's not really very good. It's not the amount of sexual content or distastefulness or anything like that - it's just dull. I kept hoping the next story would be better, but inevitably it wasn't.
