Staff Reviews


"The Monk" has everything you need for your Gothic horror fix: a lecherous monk, driven to lasciviousness by a cross-dressing acolyte; a nun, desperate to join her lover, escaping from her convent in the guise of a bloodied ghost; a treacherous innkeeper with murderous intent; secrets hidden in labyrinthine catacombs; devil-summoning; consuming flames in this world and the next...the list goes on. This is the non-expurgated version, so be prepared for the rape and murder that has made this infamous book a classic, for better or for worse, since it first shocked readers at the end of the 18th century. If your curiosity is piqued by this twisted tome, give it a go. You're in for a wild ride.
