When an unprecedented global scale attack plunges the world into chaos and threatens to eradicate the human race from existence, former scientist Richard Draven is tasked with finding a way to restore order.

 

With governments in chaos and violence rampant in the streets, a gruelling tale of survival and the strength of humanity in all corners of the globe is about to unfold as a man known only as Joshua strengthens his grip on a world close to ruin.

Tyler Matthews is desperate for change. Sick of his life and plagued by alcoholism, he makes the decision to divorce his wife, sell everything he owns and travel the world to try and find focus and rid himself of his addiction.

 

Eventually arriving on the sun drenched shores of Australia and still plagued by his demons, he has spent all his savings and is facing the prospect of having to return to his old life. It is here that he meets two men with an outlandish story about a horde of sunken drug money in an area known as the Devil’s Triangle – Australia’s answer to its Bermuda namesake and said to be the lair of a terrifying monster of the deep.

 

Offered a share of the fortune if he helps retrieve it, Tyler agrees to go with the men to the location, sceptical and thinking only of prolonging his journey of self discovery. He will learn, however, that this particular urban legend is real, and they encounter a giant of the seas, the previously thought to be extinct Megalodon which makes its home within the area of the Devil’s triangle.

 

Barely escaping with their lives, the three men wash up on an isolated island – no more than a rocky outcrop with no vegetation, fresh water of food sources. As desperation to survive intensifies, horrifying decisions will be made that will illustrate how man is sometimes the most violent predator on earth and when left with no option will do anything, even the unthinkable, in order to survive.

How far would you go to survive? 


When faced with something you thought lived only in myth and legend, what levels would you go to in order to see those you love again?


Those questions are ones the helpless victims trapped together in Grueber's world of food will have to ask themselves. Who will give in and accept their gruesome fate, and who, if any will take the necessary steps to ensure their survival, no matter the cost?


A blood soaked, adrenaline fuelled tale of horror unlike any other, MEAT will make you question your own morality and if those things you thought of as fireside stories could actually exist within the world.

It was supposed to be a fresh start. A place for Steve & Melody Samson to begin their new life together away from the noise and crime of the city.

 

However, their new home – an idyllic cottage nestled deep within the dense solitude of Oakwell forest-has a disturbing history, hidden for generations by the locals.

 

There is evil in Hope House, and the cursed forest that surrounds it. Evil that has awakened after lying dormant for decades, and has terrifying plans for the young couple.

Once you hear the whispers, it may already be too late.

The town of Oakwell is no more: an abandoned and overgrown relic left in the wake of the massacre at Hope House. 
When Emma Barrett discovers the secret to Hope House, the evil responds by awakening the deranged Henry Marshall from his catatonic state. 

As Emma gathers around her those who can bring an end to the Gogoku curse, a brutal game of cat and mouse begins.

Everything is at stake as the Whisper story reaches its epic conclusion. Blood will be spilled, sacrifices will be made, and redemption will be sought as the survivors of the Oakwell curse go head to head with the malevolent forces which have scourged the lands for centuries…

THE SINKHOLE ON MAPLE STREET IS GETTING BIGGER.

Eight year old Adam Pettinger knows why it is there and what lives within its black depths. 


Embry is a dying man. With his cancer terminal, he no longer has any desire to live and is goading death into taking him from a world he has grown to hate. 


Now, these two residents of Chestnut Avenue will learn that they are connected in ways they could never imagine, and that they are the only ones who can possibly stop an unholy evil which is about to climb out of the sinkhole with deadly repercussions for all of mankind.

Seven years have passed…
...since the fire at Hope House. Despite surviving, the lives of Steve and Melody Samson have changed for the worse. Steve has become a virtual recluse, while Melody is consumed by guilt, and sees in their son a constant reminder of the man Steve used to be.

The town of Oakwell…
...has become a tourist hotspot for paranormal enthusiasts, eager to learn more about the 'Hope House Haunting', becoming everything the residents of the once sleepy town fought so hard to prevent.

Ambitious town councillor…
...Henry Marshall has an idea to turn the unwanted attention on the town to his own advantage, by building a hotel on the site of Hope House.

As construction begins…
...the evil within Oakwell forest stirs. Influenced by the powerful Gogoku, Marshall becomes consumed with the need to draw Steve & Melody back to Oakwell, no matter the cost…

What if the next generation of reality show had your life as the prize?


The island is the largest man made structure ever constructed. Within its two hundred foot high steel walls are savage dinosaurs created for one purpose. To hunt man. In addition, of those who are chosen to enter the island, only one can leave and claim the prize.


As television screens around the world tune in to watch, the six contestants form an uneasy alliance as they battle nightmarish beasts beyond comprehension. When a secret is uncovered which could bring down the entire Lomar Corporation, the contestants find that some men are worse than monsters, and some corporations will stop at nothing to protect that which they tried so desperately to hide.

Something has awoken.
Roused from its slumber following an Antarctic ice quake, an immense beast has risen from the depths. Dwarfing even the mighty blue whale, the gargantuan wonder of evolution takes charge of the oceans, setting a catastrophic chain of events in motion.
Henry Rainwater is a rookie crab fisherman trying to make his own way in life. After surviving an encounter with the beast which sees his father and the rest of the crew of their family boat killed, Rainwater becomes a recluse, deathly afraid of the creature which lurks in the ocean.
The only man that believes Rainwater is Andrews, an ambitious scientist charged by the government to investigate the existence of the creature. Rainwater soon finds out that Andrews has different motivations for locating the beast.
Driven to find his redemption and clear his name, Henry must overcome his terror and set out to sea in order to track down and kill the creature, in the hope of finding it before Andrews and his unhinged superior, Russo can put their own plan into action, one which could have terrible repercussions for the entire human race…

Held in captivity for five years, the offspring of the creature which brought devastation to the oceans has existed in solitude as the government continue its attempts to genetically engineer without success. 
Henry Rainwater has become a drunk and a recluse, a broken man plagued by guilt over the devastation caused by his quest for the creature which ultimately cost his friends their lives.


After a security breach necessitating moving the creature to a new facility is disrupted by a group of animal rights activists, the beast is set free into ocean, forcing those who vowed never to return to face their demons one last time, and for one man whose life was devastated by the first creature to formulate his lethal plan for revenge.


Unbeknownst to them all, flamboyant billionaire Charles Decker had designs of his own on the creature, and will stop at nothing to take it for his own needs no matter the cost, financial or otherwise.


As the creature decimates all that is set before it, unlikely alliances will be formed, trusts broken and lives risked as the individual groups seek to find the creature first for their own agenda, unaware that they will soon become the hunted rather than the hunters…

Two years after the tragic death of Clara Thompson, those involved have been put to trial for freeing the creature into the ocean which, although destroyed, birthed young which were never found. When a legal loophole sees the accused go free without charge, a chance encounter for Henry Rainwater with Clara’s sister, Jade, pulls Henry back into a world he promised never to return to.

Jade’s independent investigations into the death of her sister have led her to billionaire Charles Decker, a man who she claims not only has live specimens of the creatures, but is actively breeding them. Along with Ross Mackay, Henry and Jade begin to investigate Decker who, when challenged, seems more than willing to share the information about his work, further rousing their suspicions.

When the trio are invited by Decker to the Triton Spire – a self-contained laboratory housed a mile beneath the Pacific Ocean where he is breeding the creatures - the trio discover that Decker is not being entirely open with them in relation to his intentions, and in fact has a very specific purpose in mind for pushing on with his breeding programme.

Under threat from one of the worst tropical storms on record which is due to hit the facility and potentially halt their investigation, Henry and Jade continue to search for the truth, unaware that both human and animal demons from Henrys past are about to come back to haunt him.
