A 'Mature Readers' title, definitely not for the squeamish, from some of the best creators in Australia. Classic exploitation and Ozploitation comes to life in DECAY, in the classic tradition of cult exploitation movies from the 70's and 80's. There are five complete short stories of very disturbing subject matter, over the top violence, nudity and plenty of gore. 'The Ties That Bind', the sickest story EVER in the pages of DECAY, is a combination of Frankenstein, The Human Centipede and Boxing Helena. 'The Bashed Man' is just ten pages of a guy getting brutally and savagely beaten. There's two 'Sisters' stories, really cool stuff (including 'The Sisters vs the Nuns of the SS Gestapo). Plus violent bikers come off the screen to massacre a cinema audience. And a personal interview with Greg McLean on Wolf Creek 2. Great stuff.
September 2014
