on April 2, 2014Format: Kindle Edition“Imagine a Gnostic injection of shocking violence–some of the most unsettling scenes I’ve read–stunningly captured in a maze of fragments and murder scene mind-rooms (the blinds are drawn///television static///duct tape serenade) of horror. Pure. Horror. Yes, this novel is a horror-show that leaves you withered and trembling. It’s a book about the human condition, a novel that plays like a manifesto, a Lynchian blog post from a secret forum, a tremor of the apocalypse. It might seem like I’m going a bit overboard, but once you enter this Krallian universe (let yourself be swept under by its blood-currents) you can’t walk away without being shaken. I’m jittery. At points, I had the experience of my own mass media-infected memories firing grainy news clips of American atrocities that hovered up between scenes, between words and story arcs–like, perhaps, the devil crept closer as the book progressed, but I took a deep breath and kept reading, sank further into this transmission of a most vile veil of the alien world (our American world). This is not a balm, it’s an attack.”

HUMANITY IS THE DEVIL is a deconstructed nightmare mixing David Lynch and snuff movies. The plot revolves around a central character, Seth, who is set about a crusade against humanity which, for him, represents pure evil. Through random killings he and his cronies try to accelerate the end of the world, in order to provoke and defeat the Demiurge, the false God that is ruling the earth. As in Burroughs, logical language is replaced here with cut-scenes – sometimes to be taken literally – that plunge the reader into an extreme experience. Both incredibly morbid and enthralling, HITD is a masterpiece of moral darkness and existentialist reflection upon our comfortable religion and morals.
