Book Review: Final Cuts, part 3

Final Cuts: New Tales Of Hollywood Horror And Other Spectacles edited by Ellen Datlow, part 3


Many Mouths To Make A Meal

A studio fixer encounters something cold, cunning and calculated that is a deadly threat. This was okay.


Best Lines:

“Unexpected corpse removals.”


“Fringe-dwelling producers.”


“Perceived to have some future value.”


“One no history book will every recount and few living folk could speak of.”


Altered Beast, Altered Me

A writer undergoes an ongoing and sinister transformation. Troubling circumstances hint at something deep, dark and deadly. This was good.


Best Lines:

“Broker than broke.”


“Insist on the singer's integrity.”


“So desperately unhappy.”


“Calcification of taste and knowledge.”


“A predator wearing her husband's face.”


“Refuses to cohere into significance.”
