One Buck Horror: Volume Two Reviews

    Volume 2 of One Buck Horror delivers again. If you’re down on your luck and only have a buck to spend consider selecting this over food.I had a few stand-outs. Sean Logan’s “Holes” is definitely creepy and the pusher is a memorable character. David Bischoff’s “Beastie” walks slightly in the shadow of Stephen King’s Pet Cemetary, but the direction ends up being different and interesting. It ended too soon and I wanted more. Despite its disturbing scenes, Michael Penkas’ “The Afterlife of Ellen Easterling” has a charming, approachable feeling. Maybe it’s the dead woman’s name. The mood of the story emulates her state of being – floating above, half-touching everything. This was my favourite.

    What Swims These WatersI’m not sure what to think of this one. Don’t take that to mean it’s bad. For me, it gave a surreal look into the slow death of two people by something mysterious—first from the ocean and then on land. The PoV fit the piece and the wording lured me into a dream-like state. Good job. HolesBizarre. No way to describe it. A little bit of salvation and a smidge of redemption mark this one. While it didn’t make my skin completely crawl, it had me tingling at the thought of what lurked in that house. Nice weaving of the tale.BeastieAs I stated in the last review of One Buck Horror, there’s always got to be the one that I’d refer to as ‘picked last at gym class’. Don’t get me wrong. I thought the overall premise of the story was intriguing. However, the execution I found disappointing. To refer to the creatures in the story as ‘things’ constantly yet using verbose words smattered here and there seemed an oxymoron in my opinion.3 MonkeysAs I have one on the low spectrum of the ‘like’ scale, I have one that I love. The whole piece just drew me in and shook me to pieces. A little bit of humanity and shame mixed with a tragic tale. The drama, the build up—all of it well executed.The Afterlife of Ellen EasterlingStop the presses! What’s this? Two gems in one issue? I’m in heaven. Just when I thought the previous story had my absolute attention, this one came along. Nothing like a good ghost story with a little bit of revenge in some capacity. Great work!

    Volume two of One Buck Horror offers the same good quality of horror fiction that resided in the first volume. There's a whole new set of authors to discover. Again, these are good stories but nothing that will set the avid horror reader on his ears. I especially liked "What Swims These Waters" by Daniel Ausema and Ellen Esterling's "The Afterlife of Ellen Easterling".

    I bought this volume because there was one author's story that I wanted to read. I stuck around and read the rest of these tales because they were darn good, and I was impressed with the editing. So now I've bought 3 more volumes! I didn't expect much from One Buck Horror, but I think I'll be sticking around for awhile. Highly recommended.

    I enjoyed One Buck Horror: Volume Two just as much as Volume One. Where Volume One seemed to have a children's theme running through the stories, Volume Two is all about monsters. There are slithery, squirmy masses of creatures yet unknown, as well as a couple of the human monster variety. All stories are well-written, quick reads great for break time at work or if you have several minutes to wait. I like that about One Buck Horror. The stories are short enough that I don't feel overwhelmed reading them on my Droid. And these are satisfying creepy tales! A couple of the stories hint at more adult themes, but these are handled well and never go overboard into modern gore and violence just to gross readers out. And I like how there are some modern situations spun into the style of good, old-fashioned horror stories. In fact, one of the stories that holds more of an adult theme is "Holes" by Sean Logan. I think "Holes" is my favorite of the 5 stories, where a brother goes on a search to save his sister from a drug dealer who is unlike any other drug dealer I've read about (unlike any other drug I should add). "Beastie" is my second favorite by David Bischoff. Beastie's a cat and while the cat does drag a present home for his owner, the owner gets dragged into a very creepy, unique freaky world. "What Swims These Waters" by Daniel Ausema reminded me of the squirmy things that live at the bottom of the sea and perhaps what some of the tinier varieties could potentially become with a few hefty mutations. I liked that the reader is left to wonder what the heck the creatures in this story are. "3 Monkeys" and "The Afterlife of Ellen Easterling" both deal with human killers, but with an interesting unique spin on those types of tales. This collection of five stories is worth much more than a dollar. You can't go wrong with it! Great job to all the authors of One Buck Horror!

    Once again, all of the stories were creepy, leaving me wanting more (in a good way!), and once again I loved them all.“What Swims These Waters” is one of those mysterious horror tales. You never really know what is going on or what is causing it. But this wraps you in, so you have to find out what’s happening.Similarly, “Holes” left me wondering. We got a little sneak peak of the horrors out there, but as in life, we don’t get to know everthing.“Beastie” was a great tale. Ever wonder what your cat is doing when it’s exploring outside? Once you read this story, you may not want to know. (And kudos to David Bischoff for the Bob Barker-esque endorsement of having your pet fixed!). See the end of this article for a video trailer for “Beastie”.The next story, “3 Monkeys” might be one of the scariest. Unlike most of the other stories, there is no supernatural or unexplained. The story just deals with the madness of men.And finally, “The Afterlife of Ellen Easterling” is a unique twist on the afterlife. We’ve all kind of wondered what we would do if we were a ghost, but maybe your priorities wouldn’t be quite the same once you were dead. This story delves into this in a spine-tingling manner!

    I ordered volume two at the same time as volume one, mainly based on the reviews it had received; I wasn't disappointed!five solid stories, with a far greater diversity than the first volume, each one leaving me with the sensation that not all is right with the world.I enjoyed all five stories but hey, you always have a favourite (or in this case two), '3 Monkeys' and 'The Afterlife of Ellen Easterling' are worth the 86p price tag alone.A triumph in modern horror.

    This opinion stands for Volume 5 and "One Buck Zombies" as well; still, no doubt it may apply to the complete franchise: we should be paid, at least, a hundred quid for every story read, since they are, all of them, a horrendous botch, each volume a bucket of crap.

    I enjoyed the collection of short stories featured in this volume more than I did the first volume. Creepy and entertaining quick read.

    Every story was beautifully written, compelling, and, not to mention, horrifying.
