Summary

It was supposed to be a pleasant evening out; a break from the stress of the hard-working week they had both endured. A bite to eat in one of their favorite restaurants and then, if there was time, a movie at the cinema opposite. It had been - her husband - Sam's choice; an impromptu date. Yet his day had been one cock-up after another. Meetings had gone on longer than they should have, his phone had run out of battery, and every single traffic light seemed to be working against him. By the time he got to the restaurant, Sophie wasn't there but - as he would soon discover - she wasn't at home either and neither was she with friends.

She was down at The Farm, bound to the wall with thick chains, and she wasn't about to be leaving anytime soon....

From Matt Shaw (Sick B*stards Trilogy, PORN and Rotting Dead F*cks) comes a new, disturbing psychological horror. Will you visit The Farm and - more to the point - will you live to tell the tale?

Meh

Story is ok. After reading other Matt Shaw books I felt let down. Sick Bastards set a really high bar of expectations for me, this book left me feeling wanting & hoping for more gore.

Some Scenes May Disturb????

What a joke. Extreme horror? No, this story is a sad attempt as a horror. If you want horror, try Konrath’s Jack Daniels stories. Until the last few minutes, I had a difficult time staying awake.

only a 4 because......

I'd give it a 5 if I were more into gore. I'm sure there are some who will rate it a 6. I should give a 6 for imgination.

not bad but he has done better

it was ok but he has written netter .It was the beginning of a good story but had no ending . that is ok for a short story but it also wasn't very graphic that isn't acceptable in a so called extrem horror story.
