About this deal

Why you should buy this: If you’re a fan of Aron’s you probably have already snagged this and most likely have read it. If you’re new to extreme horror and want to see what it’s all about, this is an excellent place to dive in and discover how these novels will contain really well done plots with fantastic writing and some of the most horrific gore-filled scenes you’ll ever read. What I liked: I mean, the cover should give you some solid indication what you’re in for. If you require ANY sort of Trigger Warnings, you way want to stay away from this one. If you, however, enjoy the brand of brutality Beauregard delivers, this one will make you smile from ear to ear. Just wanted to drop a line to all the people who were kind enough to follow me on Goodreads. I haven't interacted too much on here (that's probably more out of ignorance than intention) but I'm happy to change that should there be a demand.

The story follows a crazy old lady, Geraldine, who gets sexual gratification from others misery. The worse that happens to them, the more turned on she gets. So, as one does, she creates this insanely intricate indoor playground and invites three low-income families with kids to test it out. They just don’t realize this is more ‘Saw’ meets ‘Hostel’ meets ’31’ than Sesame Street.

I did, and it became one of my top 5 movies ever. The concept, while simple, was utterly brilliant and superbly executed. The sounds I made when this book arrived in my mailbox exactly a month before release date - let’s just say they should be illegal.

Monsters are real, and they don’t look quite like the supernatural depictions on the silver screen. They look just like you and me.”

You will see some parallels with that movie when you read this one, but it is hard to imagine how far the author went with this one. If this was made into a movie, it would never see the light of day. It is SAW on steroids to the AAHHHHH degree. Over the last number of years, Aron Beauregard has emerged as one of Extreme/Splatterpunk Horror’s true Heavy Weights. His books are hotly anticipated by his ever-growing throng of fans and he has been raking up the accolades as well – becoming Splatterpunk Award nominated and Splatterpunk Award winning during that time. EXTREMELY dark and disturbing book. first splatterpunk book i have ever read and i think i can't really appreciate this genre. however i do really like the story and characters, but oh my god, the writing. descriptions of the violent acts that happen just drag on and on. it's not interesting, it's not scary, it's just really disgusting and annoying. When a band of dysfunctional children is suddenly thrust into a diabolical realm of violence, they must grow up instantly to have a chance at survival. Will they find a way to put their differences aside, or be swallowed up by the insidious architecture all around them? Geraldine and Fuchs are character's that are completely evil and unlikable, disgusting in all their enjoyment they have in living out their dream of watching the suffering of the children. There is a reason Geraldine is doing what she is, and it is somewhat sad, but clearly not justifiable.

When you think you’ve read about everything and anything and then you proceed to read a book like this 👁️👄👁️ At the heart of this story, one can't help but develop a connection and just feel every gut wrenching punch as each child must make their choices. If you are at all familiar with Aron's writing, then you should be well prepared for the darkness that lies within his storytelling. But you should also be expecting superb character developement, well developed plots, and unique settings.Goodreads Librarians are volunteers who help ensure the accuracy of information about books and authors in the Goodreads' catalog.

This is a CHUNKY BOI for Aron and there was not a single moment that disappointed. It’s delusional in the best way. It’s absolutely disgusting. It is everything you could ever want out of an Aron Beauregard book. I am always impressed with how creatively insane this author is. He pushes boundaries and makes the reader want to hide the book in case anyone beside them gets a glimpse at the words. I love it!
