Howdy horror readers, it’s your old pal Skull with a quick and dirty review of an extreme horror novella by Duncan Ralston. WOOM is an intense epic that occurs entirely in one room, Room 6 at the Lonely Motel which is not the place to be if you’re happy and you know it. Please note: this is a work of EXTREME HORROR in which a lot of heavy duty shit happens. If you’re easily triggered, this isn’t for you and it’s not for kids. And now back to our show!
The story begins with a man named Angel checking into room 6 at The Lonely Motel and calling a service for a very specific kind of prostitute. Not unexpected, given the aura of the place, but what happens when she arrives is. Instead of a mad, sexual orgy it seems that Angel has hired Shyla so that he can tell her stories. But you’ll soon see the common thread running through each one. No fairy tales happen at The Lonely Motel, instead there are backstreet abortions, drug smuggling gone way wrong, rapes, personal devastation, and rebirth.
Rebirth? Yep, Angel needs a reboot, a fresh start, a chance to re-enter the world in hopes that maybe his luck will change. He knows it will, especially after his strange experience in a creeper van full of “helpers” He just needs Shyla to do her part in this thing and maybe everyone will get something they want. Or they might die horribly painful deaths…The only way to find out what happens is to pay a visit to room 6 at the Lonely Motel Yourself, vermillion key fob in hand…
Damaged Skull Writer and Reviewer gives WOOM 5 STARS, but cautions readers to keep an open mind. Sometimes things are so ugly and painful that they become beautiful in a dark way. Is it possible that Angel’s life has been leading up to this moment or is he a dangerous madman? You can’t look away once you start this journey, but you probably won’t want to. Skull says, “Get it!”
