Horror films are a dime a dozen, so few of them have the potential to become classics of the genre. Among the thousands of entries, only a handful of titles ever resonate with audiences beyond the loyal base. Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, and The Exorcist are household names, even those too afraid to watch horror films are keenly aware of these titles and the legends they’ve spawned. But outside of horror fans, who has ever heard of Carnivore (The Final Terror) starring a young Daryl Hannah, the sadly underappreciated Just Before Dawn, or the Do-It-Yourself gore fest Cannibal Campout?
The Dark Verse is a universe of occult, metaphysical, and fantastical horror stories by M. Amanuensis Sharkchild that have the sole purpose of following you to the visions of your sleep. They are available by podcast (free mp3 downloads), hardcover books, and ebooks.
The contents of the stories range from demented entities to gross worlds, undead recollections to philosophical and psychological possessions, and twisted, inventive imagery to unhindered terror.
WARNING: Some of the material of The Dark Verse may hold ideas and descriptions that may not be suitable for everyone. Although the content is clean of explicit language, it does contain dark themes and disturbing references.
