Some stories can kill….

Italian director Nicolo Funelli’s lost film comes alive when the maven of the macabre is released after 20 years of VHS imprisonment. New hire Annie Watkins’ pre-emptive obituaries at Live @ Five New Orleans News seem to be killing off famous people. A used delivery van causes Katie and Gavin’s life to take an unimaginable wrong turn into very dark territory. A teen orphan with a unique ability is held captive in a secret government lab, forced to submit to their whims. Vacationers become a grotesque part of the Easter festivities in a small English town.

Tune in, sit back, and turn up the terror with Video Nasties…16 dark tales and a television pilot script certain to keep you wide awake at night. But don’t touch that dial…it just might kill you.

So, this author has been on my wishlist for some time, and I believe this is the first book I’ve listened to by him. I really enjoyed the short stories in this collection. The creepiest, by far, was the one with the nictating (sp?) eyeballs. Squirm, maybe? My favorite was the titular story, Nasties. It had a real 80s vibe that I absolutely loved! The narrator did a great job, and except for a few words that sounded funny to my ears (which I’m not sure of the actual pronunciations) he totally sucked me into the stories.
