These tortured tales represent the desperate prayers of shattered people. Among them you will find: a man who is haunted by the sound of sentient alarms, a psychologically damaged brother and sister whose union produces something much worse than simple dread, a group of men whose childhood sins have mutated into something monstrous aboard an old stone boat, a possibly cursed dying woman who goes in search of one last taste of passion before cancer claims her. External terror meets inner dread and the afterlife may just be a place where all our past mistakes solidify and turn on us like a pack of ravening dogs. These bleak offerings will reveal the darkness that dwells at the core of modern existence, where society is a forgotten notion, religion is a dirty word, love lies bleeding in the gutter, and everyone must face their demons alone. Kneeling at the altar of broken hearts, you will learn that sometimes it is better if our prayers remain unanswered.
