(Review) The Mouth of the Dark by Tim Waggoner

Tim Wagonner - The Mouth of the Dark
Halloween Eddie Rating: 🎃🎃🎃🎃
Release Date: September 6, 2018

Tim Waggoner's The Mouth of the Dark is what happens when Clive Barker, Sam and Dean from Supernatural, and Chad Palahniuk go on an acid trip inside of Eli Roth's Hostile.

The Mouth of the Dark is about a man named Jayce Lewis who is in search of his missing twenty-year-old daughter, Emory. Not really knowing much about his own daughter, Jayce is forced to search for Emory in places known as Shadow; a darker reality that coexists covertly with our normal, everyday reality. On his journey, Jayce dwells deeper into shadow, and things get darker and stranger.

This story is thrilling, mysterious, weird, filled with gore, sex, and slimy monsters, and beings and situations that just make you think, "How freaking weird is this?" There’s a guy who smokes the feces of accidental death victims, monstrous sex toys, dog-eating teens, and a dark-being known as The Harvest Man.

Despite it being so weird, this story kept me reading because I wanted to know what happened to Jayce's daughter. I felt invested in this man’s mission to find his daughter because he is a good parent and wouldn’t let it go, unlike his ex-wife who just passes the missing of Emory as a phase.

I also felt right in the POV of Jayce whenever he encountered something strange and unusual because I was reacting the same way.

The Mouth of the Dark is very fresh and very new and offers some new light in the darkness of horror. It wasn’t sex or gore just for the shock value or to be extreme horror. This is a well-written horror story that is character driven.

I recommend!
