The opportunity of a lifetime becomes a living nightmare.
A man with epilepsy and his wife move to rural Kentucky to grow the medical marijuana he desperately needs. Too bad for them the house they move into is a portal to hell!
Fueled by psychedelic drugs, opiate abuse and an ever-loosening grip on sanity, Hank sees the events unfolding around him as his own delusions. After all, it is easier to accept oneself as insane than to accept a living nightmare is unfolding. Uncertainty lurks around every corner as he descends into madness. Differing perceptions put him at odds with his wife Amy, who is shaken to her core by the violence and horror unleashed around her…unleashed by whatever evil they awakened when they set foot into their new home.
Warned by the local psychic that they are in danger for their very souls, the couple is trapped by situations which make it impossible for them to leave. As Hank and Amy become beholden to local organized crime, the Cornbread Mafia, the Cult of the Black Goat sets its sights on them. And what it wants is nothing short of their eternal damnation.
A fast-paced, dark thriller in the vein of Clive Barker’s Hellbound Heart, Gravel Switch is an homage to the gory horror movies of the 1980’s and the weird fiction of the 1930’s. With plenty of sex and shocking violence, it is like a cross between The Evil Dead and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. This horrific tale, based partially on real events, is a Lovecraftian nightmare full of ghosts, vampiric demons, possession, murder, rape, and despair. A unique vision of the Cthulhu mythos where neither the protagonists nor the reader, are given a reprieve from the constant onslaught of fear and degradation. A small town extreme horror featuring a cult of inbred, fanatical hillbillies unlike any other, Gravel Switch will shatter your soul and leave you mentally scarred.
Whatever your fear may be, it is sure to dwell in Gravel Switch.
