Shelves: horror , unnatural-appetites They were with him still, perfectly remembered. Eleven rooms and eleven bodies, fixed in his minds eye. The wall Decker had taken five years to build had been brought down in as many minutes, and by its architect. Boone was at the mercy of his madness again. He heard it whine in his head, coming from eleven slit windpipes, from eleven punctured bellies. Breath and bowel gas, singing the old mad songs. Aaron Boone has been under the care of the psychologist Philip Decker for years.
The killer seems to despise Boone realizes that he has to take extreme measures to stop himself. His girlfriend Lori, who is frankly the beyond perfect girlfriend, wants to be with him no matter what. Serial killer, dead or undead, or whatever, she wants nothing more than to spend the rest of her life with him.
This is one of those books that is almost impossible to discuss without spoiling the plot, but I will say that Boone ends up in a bizarre cemetery in the middle of nowhere called Midian, and the cemetery is populated in underground caverns by creatures called the Nightbreed. I am no exception.
The characters are deftly drawn, and he even forces the reader to accept that these unsettlingly ugly creatures, the Nightbreed, are not rabid killers, but actually refugees in search of a place to live peacefully. Boone soons finds himself standing between the Nightbreed and an army of redneck cops. Is that Decker I see in the background Clive Barker directed the film version named Nightbreed, which is actually a better title for the novel than Cabal.
As a big bonus, David Cronenberg plays the role of Dr. Philip Decker. He has played several small roles in several of his own movies and had a role in the movie Into the Night, a movie that several directors were asked to play small parts, but this is the first time that Cronenberg takes a major role in a movie. A little trivia for your next Hollywood cocktail party. The other four short stories collected with Cabal are also really good, and each is very different from the others.
The Life of Death A young woman becomes obsessed with the opening of a previously buried mausoleum and meets a strange man who has the same obsession. Greed, mayhem, and native curses simmer into a stew of trouble that will leave everyone scrambling to survive. Slack, and stupefied with shockseeing the way he was wrought. Seeing the snout of him, the hair of him, the golden eye and the yellow tooth of him.
Their horror elated him. A man named Ballard has to figure out what is going on and who he is in the process of finding out the truth. Normally, he would be asked to investigate, but in this case, he gets more than he bargained for, just sitting. His right hand caught hold of one of the handles, and closed thankfully around it. His arm was almost jerked from its socket as it took his body weight, but he flung his other arm up and found the casket edge.
Using it as purchase, he hauled himself up like a half-drowned sailor. It was a strange lifeboat, but then this was a strange sea. Infinitely deep, infinitely terrible.
