“Decidedly creepy and Flanagan-esque in approach, Headhunters pulls you in with the promise of eerie things to come. And boy does it deliver.”

Robert P. Ottone, author of the Bram Stoker Award-winning novel The Triangle.

The Thief of Always meets Eight Legged Freaks in this suburban horror thriller about a young boys battle against ancient insectoid demons targeting his friends and family.

Edgar Tooms’s summer vacation is cut short by a supernatural home invader—a ten-foot-tall praying mantis! 

The voracious beast, an ancient Mesopotamian demon, is after Edgar’s grandfather, a housebound ghost with no body. After escaping the creature’s claws, Edgar realizes that the gigantic mantis will never stop. Luckily, the demon’s entry into our world sparks a mystic transformation within Edgar, giving him a fighting chance.

Boosting Edgar’s odds are the addition of his best friend Clara Diaz, her quirky Aunt Ginnie, and the enigmatic professor Sol Balam who all bring their own special gifts to the fight.
