About this deal

However, when Elves Jimbo and Sissy failed to turn up for their shift, the first inklings of panic start to set in. This book is every bit the totally irreverent, offensive, obscene masterpiece of holiday hilarity you might expect … with political incorrectness and several vicious cultural jabs thrown in. Set against a backdrop of a turbulent era, in which plucky little elves stand up for what they believe in and forge a new destiny for themselves. I'm only kidding - Adam has re-imagined yet another *[beloved] classic, and made The **[in]Human Santapede into what is sure to be one of my favorite things for many upcoming holiday seasons! When the first few elves go missing, followed by that most famous reindeer, elf-foreman Finklefoot finds himself given the additional duties of tracking them down.

However, it would be fantastic if we could get this noticed beyond the horror community, even if for its perceived notoriety.

A humorous British Bizarro story set in the ‘Land of Christmas’ which will not quickly be forgotten. Some things are just plain wrong…and let’s face it, a chain-gang of elves with their mouths sewn to the proceeding elf’s arsehole, headed up by Santa, his promiscuous ex-stripper wife Jessica, and good old Rudolf – it’s just wrong on so many counts. As a huge fan of all of the film entries this is named loosely after, I was looking for something darker. You’ve hooked in a certain type of reader with the risqué title and (possibly even-more-so) coverart.

Can Santa – aided by his best foreman, Finklefoot – get his elves back, defeat Krampus, and save Christmas before it is too late, or will Krampus succeed in creating the ghastliest single-file organism the North Pole has ever seen? I laughed and enjoyed this silly, weird (In)Human Santapede parade because I have the sense of humor of a five year old.

This evil figure is sewing the elves arse to mouth, with the ultimate aim of kidnapping Santa himself and making him the figurehead of this shuffling man-made meat train. And we only use water based inks, to ensure the printing process is as environmentally friendly as possible. Whilst there was the occasional joke that made me groan (in a good-natured way), invariably, I laughed (yes, out loud) at least once in each chapter.

First published back in November of 2014, British author Adam Millard’s outrageously inappropriate festive offering ‘The Human Santapede’ offered up everything that the lurid cover promised. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).Often, the humour in these things becomes a bit wearisome but due to the brevity of it, it never outstays its vile welcome. Here they meet a psychotic German surgeon whose life-long fantasy is to connect humans together via their gastric systems. But it had just the right amount of dark humor mixed with horror elements sprinkled with pop culture insults. Ugly Christmas sweaters have become as much a staple of the season and eggnog and gift-swaps, but the folks at Shinesty have taken the concept to grotesque extremes. What it will do (obviously depending on your sense of humour) is make you laugh at the sheer inappropriateness of it.

There are enough pop culture references and one-line zingers to make your head spin on your shoulders like Linda Blair. While the concept itself is utterly repugnant, the writing remains quite aloof and humourous throughout, without dwelling on the nasty particulars.Can Santa - aided by his best foreman, Finklefoot - get his elves back, defeat Krampus, and save Christmas before it is too late, or will Krampus succeed in creating the ghastliest single-file organism the North Pole has ever seen? Generally enjoyed the story which, for full effect, should definitely be read over the Christmas period. Adult, mildly offensive and slightly cringeworthy on occasion, but nothing that should be taken too seriously. Surprisingly, there was quite a bit more humor than disgust for me while reading The Human Santapede, and the occasional moments of nausea passed quickly as the author seemed careful to throw in a joke or light-hearted exchange fairly immediately after a reference to. If you have a mad sense of humour (if you like stuff like The League Of Gentlemen, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, Monty Python and so on), you might just get a kick out of this.
