I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Low Life by Allan Walsh
What it’s about
Callum Green huddles in his dingy apartment, scared and alone – unless you count the corpse of his dead girlfriend in the corner. Even she doesn’t want him here, but he‘s stuck in this nightmare and “They’re” coming for him, he must get out – Now! But ‘The Caretaker’ doesn’t want Callum to leave. He wants to look after Callum… and he’s going to take real good care of him.
Where to find it
They call me the Caretaker.
Low life is a short horror story about a man named Callum Green who’s trapped in the same nightmare, over and over again. Taunted by the Caretaker, he tries to escape but can’t. Every time he does, he winds up in the same spot: on the brown-tainted mattress in his apartment.
Although this story had a good creep factor to it, it left me hanging with questions and a bit confused. I wanted to know more about Callum, his girlfriend and his past.
