Dolls House

When her daughter Lily is bullied to the point of being suicidal, her mother is willing to try anything to get her back on the right track. She is skeptical when a toy shop owner recommends renovating an old dolls house as a bonding exercise, but she is running out of options so agrees to the purchase. Soon the dolls start to bear a striking resemblance to those who were bullying her daughter, and then the bullies start to become victims of tragic events – that the dolls house seems to know about before they happen. Is the house predicting the future, or causing the accidents?

Prison Break

When Lee is stuck in a holding cell accused of domestic violence on New Year’s Eve despite being the victim and not the perpetrator, he is terrified. He is also locked in there with two other men accused of violence. He thinks things can’t get worse, until one of the other men starts acting strangely and things that cannot be explained begin to happen. Whilst he and his cell mates are all locked up they begin wondering if it is their eyes deceiving them, if they are losing their grip on reality, or if something not of this world is lurking in there with them.

Funny as a Heart Attack

One of Yvonne's stories 'Clown Camp' features in Schlock's Funny as a Heart Attack anthology - a collection of clown themed horror stories.

Clowns are funny--right? Hysterical. You might die laughing at their crazy antics. But there's something creepy about those greasepaint faces, those false smiles, those sinister, staring eyes... Who knows what they're thinking? Who knows what they do, when the laughter stops, when the lights go down, when the clowns quit the Big Top and go--where? Back to the trailer? Out on the streets? Or down to the hell they came from?
