Manic mutterings and growled gibberish… are what two cousins are confronted with when an unfathomable force has overtaken an elderly relative’s soul. Can they reclaim her body from the grip of this demon?
Eric Meisinger longs to crawl back into his warm bed. But the forty-something cartoonist is both intrigued and alerted to his cousin’s midnight plea for help dealing with an aging mother who’s acting uncharacteristically violent and volatile. When he reluctantly enters the house, he’s shocked to see the frail Jewish octogenarian atop a massive cabinet hurling objects and growling indecipherably.
How the hell did she get up there?
As her improbable acts grow more vulgar and menacing, Eric becomes convinced that her affliction is not physical but metaphysical. He persuades his cousin Bernie to invite the local rabbi. Unfortunately, the latter is unable to help and is as much threatened by the apparent demon and rushes away. At the cousin’s desperate plea, he tells them of a Haitian clergy that he’s heard about that has experience with possession.
Can they arrest the blood-curdling growling’s and maniacal behaviour before Aunt Agnes is placed in a straitjacket and carted away to a lunatic asylum?
Rue Rosco 13 is a spine-chilling horror novella. If you like dark comedies, hair-raising creepiness, and seeing the mundane turn maniacal, then you’ll love Eddie Russell’s mystifying and threatening rituals.
Take a peek – if you dare - at Rue Rosco 13 on the journey to hell.
