Kurzbeschreibung

30. Juni 2013

Wrath James White has more to say than many of his contemporaries, and says it more eloquently. He can gross you out with the best (or worst) of 'em, but I think there's more to him than that..."
-Poppy Z. Brite

"O'Rourke digs down into some loamy soil--what she comes up with is disturbingly dark, and often, very funny."
-Jack Ketchum

Life can be Hell. Gloria is an aging porno actress, failed wife and mother, and drug-addict, when she gets the opportunity to do yet another degrading gig. But when it gets way out of hand and the wreck of a human being finds herself in Hell, the real trials for Gloria are to begin.

Cursed to an eternity of suffering and torture, she will do anything to get out of the Pit. Even if it means taking it over...

Deadite Press is proud to present one of the most notorious modern horror novels to a brand new audience. Prepare yourself for a trip to the darkest pits of Hell and back.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nicht zu empfehlen 19. Dezember 2013
Von Tom
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Poisining Eros war mein erster kompletter Roman von White und Rourke. Von White kannte ich bisher nur ein paar Kurzgeschichten, deswegen wusste ich bereits, was mich erwarten könnte. Dachte ich jedenfalls. Ich lese ja viel und schaue viel Horror, aber etwas wie PE habe ich noch nicht erlebt. Es geht direkt derb los, wenn die Heldin der Geschichte Gloria, Tierpornos dreht, um Geld für Drogen zu kaufen. Früher hätte ich so etwas direkt in die Ecke geworfen, aber es muss wohl der tatsächlich gute und flüssige Schreibstil gewesen sein, so wie die Tatsache, dass es nur ein Buch und kein Film ist, dass ich die Szenen ohne weiteres gelesen habe. Nach Tieren geht es mit Dämonen weiter, was ich recht einfallsreich fand.
Man merkt, bis Gloria in der Hölle landet, dauert es etwas und wer denkt, es wäre bis dahin schon schlimm gewesen, hat noch gar nichts gesehen. Das Autorenduo splattert was das Zeug hält. Eine kranke Idee jagt die nächste und obwohl mich so etwas schnell langweilt, schafft PE es dank seiner interessanten Handlung über eine Frau, welche sprichwörtlich durch die Hölle geht, um dann zum Gegenschlag anzusetzen, es zu unterhalten.
Wie gesagt, der Schreibstil ist flüssig und ich kann mir vorstellen, dass White und Rourke sich etwas abgewechselt haben, denn hier und da merkt man doch kleine Unterschiede in den Kapiteln.
Der Rezensionstitel bezieht sich darauf, dass ich nicht weiß, wem man dieses Werk empfehlen sollte. Es ist ultrabrutal, pervers und vollkommen krank, aber gut geschrieben und spannend. Ich persönlich habe es jedenfalls schnell durchgelesen, um zu erfahren, wie es endet. Lesen sollten es aber nur Fans des absoluten Extremhorrors.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Welcome to Hell. 7. Juni 2006
Von Jose Jones - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Though it's filled with endless descriptions of torture and degradation, "Poisoning Eros" is about redemption. It's the story of an old porn queen whose career has faded away because of drug addiction and AIDS. She's fallen so far she's reduced to having sex with animals for a web site to make money for her habit.

Gloria, the porn queen, ends up with a man looking for an invite to Hell, and it turns out this man knows her husband and daughter. They use Gloria's love for her daughter to get her to commit suicide, which sends her to Hell, where she's repeatedly and brutally tortured.

There's no doubt White and O'Rourke strive to give the extreme-fiction crowd what they want. The bestiality, violence and torture are endless. But like White's similar story "Book of a Thousand Sins," things get pretty silly. At one point Gloria begins to plead with the demon who tortures her and forces him to face his own reality. Which just goes to show you that you can be an arch demon in Hell, but your woman is still going to nag you and try to turn you into something you're not. I'm surprised she didn't buy him a new set of clothes.

The weakest aspect of this story is that Gloria continually risks her life to save her daughter (who also ends up in Hell), but the daughter helped send her here. I know a mother's love knows no bounds, but it's hard to believe her motivation. And all of this running-around-Hell, one's-passion-and-resolve-driving-one-on-to-save-the-person-one-loves business isn't exactly "What Dreams May Come." Actually, you hear the term "ripping flesh" so many times that eventually it becomes like reading the phonebook.

When I encounter a threadbare story in one of these books, I'm always a bit stumped how to judge it. On the one hand, you buy these books for the sick-fun of its violence, and "Eros" has plenty of that. But on the other hand, novels like "The Bighead" and "High Life" show you can do more than just list one scene of gore after another. These novels, novellas and stories work better with skill. With more than a skinny plot to cover with repetitive debauchery.

So I'll say what I normally say: if you don't mind the lack of story, and can get by with all the woman-animal love and whips-and-more torture, then this novella is for you. If not, you'll probably want to skip it and look elsewhere.

4.0 von 5 Sternen From "The Horror Fiction Review" 18. Juli 2013
Von Christine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Do not be fooled or lulled into a false sense of security by the classy, literary-sounding title of this book.

There is not enough brain-bleach in the world. Not in the world. Not in the whole solar system, even if Jupiter and all the other gas giants were composed entirely of brain-bleach. The first few pages alone ... NOTHING WILL ERADICATE THE IMPACT!!!

YOU WILL BE TRAUMATIZED AND SCARRED FOR LIFE. CANNOT BE UNSEEN!!! WHY DID I EVER LEARN TO READ I LOVE LANGUAGE AND LOOK WHAT THEY MADE IT DO OMG.

You know that episode of South Park where the boys write the book that makes everyone who reads it barf their guts out? Yeah. No. Poisoning Eros would make that book look like Hop on Pop.

If you can get through those first few pages, you might naively think it can't get any worse. Or that you'll go numb, be desensitized. Good luck with that.

This is the story of Gloria, former porn-star legend fallen on hard times. Age and addiction have taken their toll, until she's reduced to doing, shall we say, nature documentaries. If a phrase like `dog and donkey show' disturbs you, then, well, it's probably already too late. Sorry.

After barnyard adventures, it's not that much of a step down for Gloria to accept some even weirder jobs. Jobs of the paranormal activity type, for instance. Like ghost and possession porn, or giant demonic worms.

But Vlad, the charming fellow arranging these gigs for her, has something else in mind for Gloria. Something that will result in her ending up quite literally in Hell ... and, honestly, for me at least, it was a relief.

Why that should be, I don't know. The atrocities went on, amped to diabolical and otherwise physically impossible levels of degredation and mutilation; maybe that was part of it, the sheer impossibility and unreality. Or maybe too much of me had died inside by then.

Read it if you dare. You won't be disappointed. You'll be many, many other things, you might need therapy and/or self-medication later, it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a bucket standing by, but you won't be disappointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Worth the wait! 16. Juni 2013
Von Ellie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have wanted to read this book for years, and thanks to Deadite Press re-releasing it I finally got the chance. And I have to say that I really loved this book! To summarize the book without giving too much away; the story follows Gloria an aging porn star turned drug addict, who used to be great but now will do anything for a fix. Unfortunately for Gloria she is about to find out that all of the pain she endured on earth is nothing compared to what she will find in hell. The tortures she finds are described in explicit detail; something not for the faint of heart but enjoyable to those of us who like hardcore horror.

This story is much deeper than just gratuitous sex and violence; as it examines redemption as well as our perceptions of God and the Devil. And just what if neither Heaven or Hell is what we expect it to be. Fans of the Teratologist by Lee and White will really enjoy this offering, but be warned that this is a book that will stick with you long after you have turned the final page.

I received a copy of this book for free in e-book format in return for an honest review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Chicken Soup for the Dark Side 29. September 2004
Von MrHARM - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have not had the pleasure of reading Wraths earlier work - I have had the pleasure of reading Monica's work, though.... and Monica has always done something to shock me! This book is no different!

This colaboration between these two extremely talented writers is like nothing I have ever read.... the detail they use literally brings you into the darkest depths with the main character, Gloria. Never before have I gotten this vivid a glimpse of Hell.... which makes me wonder if Monica or Wrath have actually been there..... hmmmmmm....

I immediately found myself sympathizing with Gloria - which must be part of the Monica/Wrath TRAP! And her Hell on Earth is nothing compared to her Hell in Hell!

Throughout this book I found myself gagging, choking, looking away, questioning my own beliefs in good and evil, and yelling (out loud, not in my head!) at certain characters (Vlad, Ryan, Angela... all come to mind!) who deserved the punishment that poor Gloria endured.....

My ONLY criticism of this book is that I feel it ended too abruptly... some extremely critical decisions were made in the last 2 or 3 pages that I felt deserved a chapter of their own.... I felt sorry for myself after I read the last page because I wanted to read more.... I wonder if a sequel or continuation is in the works.....

Hopefully Monica and Wrath will be taking another trip to Hell soon to conjure up some more sick, twisted, and wonderfully demented ideas!!!!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Soul shattering 24. September 2004
Von Jeffrey Leach - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
"O'Rourke digs down into some loamy soil-what she comes up with is disturbingly dark, and often, very funny" writes veteran horror writer Jack Ketchum in a blurb on the back cover of "Poisoning Eros." Since Monica O'Rourke co-wrote this deeply disturbing gorefest with Wrath James White, I guess the same description applies to him. Except for the "very funny" part; I found nothing about anything I read in this book worth chuckling about. In fact, you're probably wearing a straightjacket as we speak if you found anything remotely amusing about "Poisoning Eros." Don't get me wrong; I love extreme horror and dark fantasy just as well as the next psychopath, but White and O'Rourke explode so many boundaries, obliterate so many taboos, that even my iron shod stomach rumbled in a not so polite way as I meandered through the novel. I decided to pick up "Poisoning Eros" after reading "Teratologist," a novella Wrath James White penned in conjunction with goremeister supreme Edward Lee. Amazingly, this book easily eclipses the atrocities of "Teratologist." It arguably overshadows the sickening stories of Charlee Jacob, Poppy Z. Brite, Matthew Stokoe, and just about any other gore filled opus released in the last few years. That's saying something.

Welcome to the intriguing world of Gloria, a once beautiful and popular adult film starlet now slogging through a damaged world fueled by hard drugs and alcohol. The fast days of big money and fan conventions are long gone, replaced with work so degrading to the human soul that I refuse to mention it here. Gloria allows herself to wallow in depravity for a few measly bucks so she can continue her binges. The poor woman longs for her former glories, but she also longs to return to the only man who truly loved her and the daughter she gave up to pursue her sleazy career. Any hopes for a tearful reunion seem far off, however, until she meets a mysterious man who promises her huge paychecks if she agrees to engage in a physical union with a supernatural being. Gloria doesn't quite realize the implications of the deal let alone truly believe what she sees while doing it, but a buck is a buck and these fat checks will arrest those horrible narcotics withdrawals that pop up with frightening regularity. There is a catch in the deal, though. Gloria must promise to work for no one else ever again. She agrees without taking it seriously. After all, how will this guy know what she's up to?

Guess what? He does know what she's doing, and a whole lot more. Turns out this sinister chap made a deal with a demon in the underworld, the same demon showing up in one form or another to dally with Gloria. Our heroine (or anti-heroine depending on your view) discovers that she is caught up in a horrible pact fraught with eternal peril to her immortal soul. The second half of the book finds Gloria imprisoned in the pits of Hell, where she toils in the service of a fallen angel. Prepare yourself for page after page of intricate descriptions of the worst sorts of fleshly atrocities. We've all heard the hoary stories about the flaming pits, roasting souls, and screams without end; O'Rourke and White take them to heart and promptly shove them in your face. This is grueling, soul shattering stuff the likes of which you've never seen before. Just when you think you cannot possibly take anymore, the book shifts focus by examining themes of emotional healing, redemption, and tough personal choices involving the bonds between mother and daughter. I was quite surprised to discover that "Poisoning Eros" is a book that actually makes you think after you close the cover for the final time.

All fans of extreme horror need to pick this one up posthaste. That more buffs don't know the book exists is surprising. While I'd like to describe some of the juicy details in the story, the subject matter is so beyond the pale that public decency prohibits my doing so. I can say I found "Poisoning Eros" to be an extremely well written story, and one that doesn't toss aside character development and plot in favor of gore. We come to know Gloria as a fully developed human being who, despite her rock bottom life and low self-esteem, never loses her sense of self or the ability to love her daughter. She's beaten, cheated, mistreated, emotionally damaged, lied to, and generally treated like refuse but she never loses sight of something better in life or in the afterlife. I don't think it is a stretch to say you might actually come to like this lady's pluck. It's to the authors' credit that they manage to bring these themes to the surface of what is essentially an ocean of gore. Dig down into that loamy soil and give "Poisoning Eros" a shot; you might just end up liking the darn thing!
