Facial by Jeff Strand

2 Stars

How weird is too weird for me? Welp, apparently this weird.

Carlton and Greg find themselves in one strange pickle of a situation when a face appears in the basement floor. This isn’t just a regular face either – it’s a face that is HUNGRY!

Nope, it can’t be satisfied with cheeseballs – this sucker is demanding to be fed human remains.

You’re damn skippy, uggo face.

Either I’m missing something or this one wasn’t very good. I don’t know if it was too short or what, but this was a story that didn’t really seem to have much of a point. I kept thinking eventually someone was going to figure out how to take out the face a la Bruce Campbell style

and things would go from “meh” to “a-meh-zing” (see what I did there???), but it never happened. I picked Facial up because it’s Halloweeny time (duh) and I’m a huge fan of the horror/comedy genre, but sadly it just missed the mark.

Have no fear, though, Mr. Strand. You haven’t seen the last of me yet. After reading and loving Kumquat and being a superfan of the horror novel, I have faith that I’ll have plenty of stars to drop on some of your other stuff.
