Blurb:

THE YEAR’S GRISLIEST BESTSELLER DESTINED TO BECOME A CLASSIC OF HORROR

WELCOME TO BEAST HOUSE`
It’s the nastiest tourist spot in town, the scene of grisly killing after grisly killing, with every victim immortalised in lifelike waxwork .. .
For Donna and her daughter it’s just a chilling diversion on the run from a husband with twisted notions of fatherly affection.
For Larry and Jud it’s a vengeance run. The Beast is real. Larry has seen it and he’s got a scar or two to prove it.
For everyone, the real surprise is in the cellar. Down there there’s horror like no horror ever before .. .
