Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Like a lost, x-rated episode of Hammer House of Horror written by Brian Clemens on acid, "The Unholy" is a lurching, oozing reminder of the time when the short, sharp "Nasty" briefly became a publishing category. An evil hand...Sorry, an Evil Hand is on the loose, pulling the hands off its victims and attaching itself to the resultant stumps, possessing and controlling them towards its own nefarious ends. Although published in the early eighties, this is very much a seventies book. The plot carries us from the Ardennes to Paris (with plenty of incidental travelogue malarkey along the way) in the company of exactly the sort of stock characters you're imagining. But the story never gives us a moment to detach and consider its sheer silliness. it just keeps coming. Logic is not a commodity here. Frenzy is all.
