After the Fade

After the Fade - Ronald Malfi I have liked everything that I have ever read by Ronald Malfi. He is becoming one of my new favorite writers. I also recommend another novella---Borealis. In fact, the only reason I gave it 4.5 instead of 5 stars was that I liked Borealis even better.

Very good old school type of horror story. Straight forward action that moves crisply to a dark resolution. Icky, nasty bugs doing terrible things to people. Good characters just trying to survive yet acting in believable fashion. Great ending that proves the adage that once you think that things can't get any worse---they do. Malfi is a pro. This would make a very good short film.
