IT STALKS THE GLOWING SLAG IN WHICH A CIVILIZATION DIED…

FROM THE HEART OF DARKNESS come no gentle wraiths, no pastel fantasies of bittersweet, seductive evil. This horror slams like a muzzle blast into its victim's awareness, carves its image with razor claws of violence as vivid and graphic as uncensored imagination. This horror comes from the center of the human soul, FROM THE HEART OF DARKNESS.
