Sam, his wife Jody, and daughter Charlie move to a small town in Kentucky for a fresh start. Sam is inexplicably drawn to a particular house, and when the owner catches him gazing at it, she sells it to him for a knock-down price. She was delighted to find someone willing to buy it. Unfortunately, it turns out to be a terrible purchase for Sam and his family, as they find out more or less as soon as they move in. With help from a priest and some paranormal investigators, including the author, it takes all of Sam’s mental and physical strength to face the evil that possesses his family’s new home.
Taylor Mill Horror by Austin Lawrence is a classic horror tale in the style of the infamous The Amityville Horror. Like that renowned book, Taylor Mill Horror is full of frightening supernatural activity that terrorizes the family living there. Also, like the original, this story purports to be true. At the end of the book, a few poorly rendered black and white photos are presumably intended to prove the veracity of the claim.
The chilling story’s structure is well-planned and delivered at a reasonably good pace. At times, the author uses a conversational style, allowing the reader to feel as if they are there with the family and author experiencing the paranormal activities. While I found this book to be thrilling, I felt it could benefit from another edit to catch a few typos that felt distracting. Those minor criticisms aside, horror fans will love this book. It’s terrifying.
Taylor Mill Horror is an engaging and sensational read. The author presents their facts and the stories they personally experienced, along with the stories of Sam and his family, to make this nonfiction work unforgettable. Fans of horror, true stories, paranormal activity, and true-life thrillers will be on the edge of their seats throughout this horrifying book.
