    This is the first book I ve read by the author, and it was pretty good, if a little insane Okay, than a little insane There are so many crazy people in this book it was difficult to determine who was the craziest, though I think it was Lander Dills.A pair of back packers Neala and Sherri and a family of three Lander, Ruth, Cordelia, and Cordelias boyfriend Ben become fair game when they decide to make a stop in the small town of Barlow Both groups get kidnapped by some of the locals, and are taken to an area in the forest where there are six dead trees Neala and Sherri are handcuffed to one of the trees and the other four to another Their abductors soon haul ass and quickly get out of there though it s not long before one of them Johnny Robbins returns as he has a bit of a fixation with Neala.Anyway, once both groups have been uncuffed it s a fight for survival as they are relentlessly pursued by the Krulls.The Krulls are bad enough, but Lander seems to have had a beast hiding inside of him and due to his current situation it s just itching to be set free.I read the restored and uncut version and it was quite good His daughter, Kelly Laymon restored the book to its original form which she explains at the beginning of the book.

    Balls to the wall horror from the first chapter There are two things that are important if you want to read this book The first, if you don t know Laymon, is that this author liked the graphic description of sex He will not hold back when it comes to doing the dirty In fact, there was a song that ran through my head quite a bit as I read this story In the SOUTH PARK episode where they parodied GAME OF THRONES, they had a male choir who did the words for the theme song Mostly, it went Wiener Wiener wiener Wiener wiener That just about sums it up So, if the sex scenes will be offensive to you, avoid this book altogether And, by the way, good luck with not thinking about wieners the next time you here the GAME OF THRONES music The good news is that Laymon could write, so he doesn t rely on the shock factor alone to sell his stories.The second is that you will have to let go of reality a bit to accept some things in this novel Personally, I found it a bit hard to believe that a 12 year old girl could keep her shit together under those circumstances and do some of the things she did.If these things will not bother you too much and you are willing to go along with it, you might enjoy this one, if you are into extreme.The best thing about this book was probably the pace and adrenaline rush, for it is relentless and, as stated before, Laymon did not hold back Some bad shit will happen It gave me the same general feeling as TRAPPED by Jack Kilborn.Yip, there s cannibals galore, and morally corrupt individuals up the gazooRecommended to extreme horror fans.

    This was the first Laymon book I ever read when I found the paperback for sale in a Target store book section, Complete with the sleazy foil cover I was so pleased when Cemetery Dance published this Uncut Version.

    When an unkempt legless man drags himself out in front of your convertible on an isolated mountain road and throws a severed hand at you, you should A Stop and see if he needs a hand sorry, couldn t help myself B Show him your boobs, Laymon nipples and allC Go get some chicken fried steak and eggs at the next available dinerD Take a few minutes out for some steamy lesbian sexE All of the above.The crazy thing is that in this one, all of these are very real possibilities There are no wrong answers in this one It has a bit of everything Crazy as f ck from the get go and only gets crazier as it gets rolling.If you know what you are getting into ahead of time, I have a feeling that you will enjoy the ride It is filled with gory, absurd, blood soaked sexy times, cannibal feasting and f ck fest with your usual suspects of inbred crazies and no shortage of the infamous rock hard Laymon nipples.Good time granny hammer fun, backwoods cannibal lesbian love, a dried dozen dick necklace, riding the Cordelia train, Krull heads on a stick, Sheri is bi for Neala pie and the best vacation Lander has ever had.Yep That about sums it up I liked it But, it should be noted that I m a weirdo and was laughing out loud in all the inappropriate places.If you have delicate sensibilities then I would probably stay far, far away from this one As a matter of fact, you probably shouldn t have even read my review And what the hell are you looking up this book for in the first place Mr Mrs prudey pants 3.5 Stars rounded up to 4 based on the non stop bloody inappropriate crazy fun factor That and because, I say so.

    Laymon rewrites Ketchum s Off Season as a comedy porno and it s a rocking good time Read the whole book in about 3 hours Very much like watching a crazy batshit insane horror movie Really not so much horror as pure insanity This book might be the original Wrong Turn as it s very much in a similar vein and tone, and even though an earlier work it s still full of Laymon s signature WTF delights Loved it, and highly recommend that if you haven t read it yet, get it check your brain at the door and run screaming naked through the woods for a few hours with this one Make sure it s the restored and uncut version can t imagine this book any other way.

    The woods are lovely, dark and deepuntilyou re being chased through the forest by a horde of inbred cannibals Then it s enough to make even a staunch tree hugger like myself say, Go, logging industry I had the same problem with this book that I did with The Ruins, in that the characters were so insipid I couldn t wait for them ALL to die And any author that makes me root for the cannibals is worthy of scorn, not praise Thrown in dozens of WTF moments view spoiler They re in the proverbial middle of nowhere, yet one of the female cannibals manages to keep her public region nicely shaved A chopper rescue in the deep, dark forest Oh, you big, strong unwashed redneck man Even though you kidnapped me, and were going to sacrifice me to the cannibals, I am now IN LOVE with you, so let s go outside and have the BEST SEX of my life while the cannibals watch hide spoiler

    4.5 stars rounded up Wow This was my first Richard Laymon novel and I was not disappointed I know Laymon has a bit of a bad reputation as in, he s known for writing trashy horror , so I was a bit hesitant when starting this short tale of a few people lost in the woods and on the run from an incestuous family of cannibals that practice witchcraft I think Oh, and the Devil shows up too In literal monster form Needless to say, this thing is intense I could not and did not want to put it down The whole time I was reading, I felt like I was reading Jack Ketchum s Off Season which is funny, since they were both published in 1981 , only I enjoyed this one much Maybe it s because I was able to sympathize with the characters, despite Ketchum arguably fleshing his creations out I dunno Laymon did a good job, here, of giving me just enough information to make the characters distinctive and likable without getting bogged down in back story This one is all action, all horror, from the start Easily the scariest book I ve read this month thus far, I liked this one much than I expected and I hope to squeeze in another Laymon before the end of March.

    Apparently this book was first copywrited in 1981 and the editors for Warner Books butchered the book Taking out full paragraphs, whole chapters were removed, bad grammatical errors, and so on Laymon often referred to this book as the one that ruined his career Then in 2008 after painstaking work, his daughter, Kelly Laymon pieced the book back together and had it published as the restored and uncut version, fortunately this is the version I have Sad that Laymon did not get to see what his daughter had accomplished since he passed away in 2001 His daughter wrote a little story about all of this and published it into the first few pages of The Woods Are Dark So there may be some bad reviews of this book if the 1981 version is what was read If you read the 1981 version, do yourself a favor and read the one published in 2008.When I first chose to read this book, I really liked the premise of the story and knew that I was in the mood yet again for a Laymon book in full Laymon style In this story we have Neala and Sherri who find themselves tethered to a tree along with the Dill family waiting for the Krulls to come and get them They knew what it meant to get this visit from them They had to escape and have to survive the dark woods The story goes on from there.There was so much action and just plain insanity in this book, it was just non stop I really enjoyed the premise of this story and I think it was executed so well I read this book in 3 and a half hours because it was so engaging and flowed really well There was also great imagery to describe the Krulls and their life style in a very harsh, woodsy setting Made me wonder who could really survive the terror among these savages I knew I would not want to be one of the victims I really liked the characters in this story, not because they were greatly developed, because they really were very simple I liked the characters because of how they were changed so much throughout the story You could actually see them evolve from what they started out as, due to the harshness of the terrain, and the savagery of the dwellers I never knew what one of them would do from one moment to the next, so it became rather shocking at times But placed in this situation, people will do what it takes to survive and you wonder who is bad and who is good any.Of course I have to recommend this book to anyone who loves Laymon s writing We all know he is not for everyone He is on the scale of you love him or you hate him There is no in between Also those who like a dark, shocking, disturbing tale of insanity may enjoy this book as well so go ahead and take the plunge, you won t be sorry.
