Fellstones is an atmospheric horror tale set in a creepy modern day English village.
Michael Paul Dunston comes home to the adopted family he has not seen in years. His adopted sister has called him home because his adopted parents are ill. However, when he arrives, they seem fine—but just as needy for his presence as before he left home. There is a boozy celebratory dinner with the neighbors. Michael Paul decides to stay the night as he in no condition to drive. But his hangover continues into a second day. What is really going on?
Fellstones is definitely creepy with clear origins like The Witches (1966). However, it has a leisurely pace, which seems more like older horror books. The eerie conclusion was great and worth waiting for. 3 stars!
