Videodrone #2: Ben Walker shares reviews that may control your mind…then destroy your wallet!

A horror fan and writer since who knows when, Ben started dabbling in online reviews around 2001. Nowadays he has a booktube channel, which features bizarre book reviews and further nonsense. When he isn’t writing, he’s probably looking at GIFs and eating Mexican food.

An ongoing feature here at Kendall Reviews will be Videodrone. This feature will highlight some of Ben’s incredibly entertaining video reviews which are intelligently written and often packed with humour & innnuendo. I hope you enjoy Ben’s work as much as I do.

The Little Stranger – Sarah Waters

In a dusty post-war summer in rural Warwickshire, a doctor is called to a patient at lonely Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, the Georgian house, once grand and handsome, is now in decline, its masonry crumbling, its gardens choked with weeds, its owners – mother, son and daughter – struggling to keep pace. But are the Ayreses haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life? Little does Dr Faraday know how closely, and how terrifyingly, their story is about to become entwined with his.

When The Veil Parts – Devika Rajan

Three stories. The first is about a woman obsessed with the thought of starting a family; the second has a handsome, young man who marries into money so that he can live a life of ease; and then, there is the tale of an impoverished aristocrat struggling to retain his ancestral estate. The emotions that propel these three are strong enough to transcend the material world, giving the reader a peek into the paranormal.

Cockblock – C.V. Hunt

After the daily grind at their jobs all Sonya and Callie want is to enjoy a quiet night out together at a new restaurant. But making it to their reservation is proving to be a challenge. A few men on the street near their destination verbally assault them. And the situation quickly escalates into a nightmare. Once within the safety of the restaurant the two women discover it’s not just the men outside who’ve lost their minds, men everywhere have gone insane. And they believe they’ve found the origin of the mayhem. A radio in the kitchen is playing a hate filled message against women and it’s being delivered by the President. There’s only one way to stop the men from attacking women and logic tells them they need to terminate the chaos at its source.

Dark Hollow Road – Pamela Morris

A past filled with terror. On Dark Hollow Road, Mary Alice Brown and her siblings know little more than poverty and abuse at the hands of their father. Getting rid of their tormentor seemed the answer to bringing joy back into their lives. But when that doesn’t work, Mary takes it upon herself to see that justice is served. A present full of dread. After an unusual visit from an elderly woman looking to borrow sugar, the theft of his coloring book, and complaints about other kids bothering him in the middle of the night, six-year-old Brandon Evenson, who lives within sight of the house on Dark Hollow Road, goes missing. A future obsessed with revenge. Desperate, Brandon’s parents seek answers from Lee Yagar, a local who’s warned people time and again of the dangers lurking at the old Brown place. But, Lee’s suggestion that Mary is involved in Brandon’s abduction makes little sense. Mary is presumed dead, as she’s not been seen in decades, but is she? And is the house truly as empty and abandoned as it appears to be? A psychological horror driven by hate, fear, and every parent’s worst nightmare.
