 My Review

Vlad was a killer. He was shipped to the United States during the Cold War. While in the US he works with the Russian mob selling organs on the black market. This horror short tells of a few of his victims.  It really makes you want to reconsider calling an ambulance lol. I liked this short story but I think it needs a little work. I feel that it was a little tame for a horror short story. Don't get me wrong, it was unnerving, but I would have liked more gore. Vlad tells you about picking up his victims and he gets all the way to slicing them up and it stops there. I almost wish the character would have talked about how he removed the organs. It is a good start but it feels like there's something missing to make it great.
