John Dies at the End

by David Wong

This horror story features all the gruesome goings-on expected of its genre. However, the injection of wry humour throughout was a welcomed surprise. Dave and John's quest for answers made me squeamish and scared one minute; whilst laughing aloud the next. And don't be fooled by the title, for the ending is as unexpected as the author's style of horror writing.

Two of the wig beasts were bearing down on me. No, three. One of them crouched and launched itself at me - THONK. The beast was batted away by a folding chair, wielded by John. He screamed 'Yeah!' in a dead-on impersonation of pro wrestler 'Macho Man' Randy Savage, grasping the folded chair by two legs. He swung again and flattened another of the beasts, screaming, 'Have a seat, bitch!'
