THE UNSPEAKABLE PEOPLE is one of a trilogy of themed horror anthologies by noted editor Peter Haining; the others are THE EVIL PEOPLE and THE MIDNIGHT PEOPLE. What's offered here is a good selection of mostly 20th century short stories, mainly by household names although with a few obscurities dotted here and there.

Matthew Lewis's THE MONK is one of the giants of the early gothic novel, and the first story here is a mere extract. It's enough to whet the appetite and loaded with torture chambers and conjured spirits, although I'm not a fan of extracts as whole as I prefer to read the whole thing. Poe's THE RAVEN is the author's famous poem included in its entirety, and a classic even for those who don't get on with poetry as a whole. THE BIRD WOMAN was written by Henry Spicer in 1863 and is about a job application for a very unusual position. It's tame nowadays, but would have been considered shocking at the time.

MY OWN TALE sees R.H. Benson tackling the ghost story genre popularised by his brother E.F., but for a haunted house effort with no real ghost, it's a big time waster. Henry S. Whitehead's WILLIAMSON is my favourite story collected here, and all about a childhood friend hiding a terrible secret. By necessity the horror is rather subtle, but the quality of the writing is out of this world. Wallace West's A THING OF BEAUTY is about a crippled hunchback working in a medical school, and is delightfully grotesque. It reminded me more than anything of the Paul Naschy film THE HUNCHBACK OF THE MORGUE, which it may have influenced.

THE OUTSIDER sees Lovecraft doing what he does best, i.e. depicting an alien world full of bizarre architecture and weird creatures. The grandiose writing style would ring hollow in another's hands, but it works for Lovecraft. C.M. Eddy's THE LOVED DEAD is undoubtedly the most controversial story collected here, a 1930sera tale of a ghoulish necrophile scouring the local graveyards. It's a real masterpiece of the grotesque and macabre, and certainly not for the faint of heart. THE COPPER BOWL sees Captain George Eliot exploring a new and hideous form of torture from China. Straightforward stuff, concise and gruelling with it.

Robert Bloch's THE FEAST IN THE ABBEY was written when the author was only 17 years old but is still a five star effort. It's pleasingly oldfashioned, telling of a group of sinister monks, and ticks all of the right boxes perfectly. John Wyndham's THE CATHEDRAL CRYPT has a similar theme but is more bythenumbers, and certainly can't be compared to the author's seminal science fiction novels. Henry Kuttner's THE GRAVEYARD RATS is another simple one, building to a suitably visceral climax that doesn't shy away from the inyourface horror. BIANCA'S HANDS is by Theodore Sturgeon and rather unusual in that it's quietly effective rather than ghastly, an interesting twist on the old "possessed hands" subgenre.

THE HEAD AND THE FEET is by Hornblower author C.S. Forester and explores the Nazi concentration camps in an unbelievably sickening way. One can only hope that the writing process was cathartic for the author. Jane Rice's THE IDOL OF THE FLIES concerns an appallingly cruel kid and the karma he deserves, served up via an unusual method. A NIGHT AT A COTTAGE is an anecdotal effort by Richard Hughes in which an escaped prisoner spends the night at an abandoned cottage; it's a bit too obvious and predictable to be a success. Ray Bradbury's THE SHAPE OF THINGS is very offbeat, exploring deformed birth in a thoroughly unexpected way. It's the most ambitious story found herein and deserves kudos as a result, even though it's more like science fiction than horror.

DESIRE AND THE BLACK MASSEUR is a grim story by Tennessee Williams which is about as grotesque as you could imagine. The story of human perversion is coldly shocking, as well as unpleasantly sexual and racist with it. It remains controversial even now. Dennis Wheatley's THE COFFIN is another version of the ageold "buried alive" type story, excellently written throughout; it's taken from his novel THE KA OF GIFFORD HILLARY. The final story, Laurence James's MERCY, is about the trapped survivor of a car wreck seeking rescue. It's heavy on the gore and all rather cringeworthy when it comes down to it. Great anthology of unpleasant horror stories, only somewhat marred this time by Haining's careless annotations, his exaggerations of fact, and the silent trimming he performed on the excerpt from Lewis' THE MONK. I've read "The Raven" a poem of 1844 by Edgar Allan Poe. {READ DOWNLOAD} ⚶ The Unspeakable People: Being Twenty of the World's Best Horror Stories ⚣ The Unspeakable People Livres NotRetrouvez The Unspeakable People Et Des Millions De Livres En Stock SurAchetez Neuf Ou D Occasion The Unspeakable People Being Twenty Of The The Unspeakable People Book Readreviews From The World S Largest Community For Readers Twenty Of The World S Most HORRIBLE HORROR STORIES, Including The Unspeakable Song YouTubevideos Play All Mix The Unspeakable Song YouTube UNSPEAKABLE UNSTOPPABLE MUSIC VIDEO Duration Kingslasher , Views DONATING THOUSANDS TOYEAR OLD The Unspeakable People Vault Of Evil Brit Horror The Copper Bowl, Captain George Eliot Again, Familiar From Many Anthologies, A Story Of Fiendish Torture By An Evil Chinese Mandarin The Feast In The Abbey, Robert Bloch One Of His Early Tales, This One A Gothic Tale Of Strange Monks And A Peculiar BanquetCRAZY SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS YouTubeMERCHANDISE MY OTHER CHANNELS MAIN CHANNEL UNSPEAKABLEPLAYS WAYS TO PRANK YOUR FRIENDS AT AMMERCHANDISE MY OTHER CHANNELS MAIN CHANNEL UNSPEAKABLEPLAYSUnspeakable Wikitubia FandomIMPOSSIBLE RAINBOW BALL HIDE SEEK YouTubeMERCHANDISE TOYS MY OTHER CHANNELS MAIN CHANNELUnspeakable YouTube WELCOME TO UNSPEAKABLE On This Channel You Will See Me Pull Pranks On My Friends, Drive Crazy Cars, Do Insane Challenges, And Muchwith The Squad Be S
