DEATH WITCH, my occultic take on the rape-revenge subgenre, is now available in a slick trade edition from Dynatox Ministries right here: DEATH WITCH
Below are some great reviews that have come in over the past few months:
"DEATH WITCH is the kind of book I most enjoy reading -- one that makes me feel like I've witnessed something I wasn't supposed to see, and now I am complicit. Like a cross between I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE and PUMPKINHEAD (without the big rubber monster), it's a devilish drive-in cult flick set to prose. Hell, yeah!"
-James Newman, author of ODD MAN OUT, ANIMOSITY, and REVENGE FLICK!
“Nick Cato’s DEATH WITCH serves up exactly what the perfectly clever title promises—a grindhouse-style mashup of revenge exploitation and Giallo-inspired occult horror. This book is sure to please fans of Mario Bava and Brian Garfield. Just TRY not to imagine Barbara Steele starring in this. I dare you!”
~ Bracken MacLeod, Bram Stoker Award nominated author of STRANDED and COME TO DUST.
"Nick Cato's love of exploitation cinema runs through all of his fiction, and here he offers a suitably mean and nasty take on the revenge genre. An over-the-top, gripping, and unsavory read." -- Jeff Strand, author of BLISTER.
"The straight-forward, no-frills writing style turns DEATH WITCH into a lean and mean book easily consumed in a single sitting. It wouldn’t be hard to imagine it playing on old 42nd Street in New York."
-Evan Romero, pophorror.com
“DEATH WITCH” by Nick Cato left me staring at the page, stunned at what I was witnessing. Cato's vivid style is like a junk-punch that made me feel like a peeping Tom and the cops were going to be cuffing me any second. A disturbing look at the true evil men can do, and the women scorned who aren't as forgiving as they'd hoped. A fast, dark, brutal revenge tale in the same bloody vein as Laymon, Tarantino, Ketchum, with a little pinch of Death Wish thrown in for good measure.
Two devil-horns up!!!
