Publisher's Summary

Seven tales of terror that could only beat in the dark, diseased heart of Dixie....

An abandoned furnace stands as a monument to cruelty and torture...as well as a gathering place for old ghosts....

Grandma's culinary gifts of comfort and compassion contain a special ingredient conjured from the very depths of Hell....

A man's stubborn curiosity awakens an insatiable hunger on a lonesome country road....

A surprise feature plays on the big screen of a drive-in theatre, revealing a town gathering that should have been left in secrecy and darkness....

Two boys explore a traveler's mobile museum of cinematic horrors, only to discover that true horror is not always what it first appears to be....

Grandpa's Christmas Eve story brings a yuletide visit from a wandering ghost with a long-unfulfilled mission....

It started out as nothing more than a shortcut home... a detour through a shadowy stretch of forest known as Tanglewood. But what awaited him there, amid the brush and bramble, made a simple flat tire seem like a horrifying journey into madness....

Spoiler alert not for children

I enjoyed the first two stories but the third story pissed me off it involved a dog being sacrificed. I wish I could have given it a lower score. I received this book at my request and I wish I didn't. I am leaving my honest review here voluntarily. Do not bother
