Reviews Flight or Fright

  • Sadie Hartmann Mother Horror
    Stephen King is afraid of something that I’m not. He’s afraid of flying. Don’t get me wrong, I have a lot of funky little fears and phobias, it’s just that flying isn’t one of them. So I saw this new anthology, aptly titled, Flight or Fright and I saw it as a personal dare from the King himself! Could he and his co-editor, Bev Vincent, curate a collection of stories that would seep through the cracks and unsettle my nerves enough to mak...

    FLIGHT OR FRIGHT, edited by Stephen King and Bev Vincent (who also each contributed a story of their own), is an anthology of plane-horror stories. While I would say that most of these stories were above average, the only thing that disappointed me was that I had already read the majority of them before--some of them several times.Here you'll find classic reprints from Richard Matheson and Ambrose Bierce, to newer tales from Joe Hill and Cody Goo...

    I am not a good flier. I flew to FL for spring break a few months after 9/11, and there were armed guardsman all over our tiny airport. Ever since then, I get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach starting the night before we leave that doesn’t abate until after we land. Yes, I know it’s safer than driving. Yes, I know that there is an infinitesimal chance of something going wrong. No, I don’t care. I’m not unhappy in the least that I h...

    From passengers and cargo, to unexpected and unwanted visitors on a plane, to Zombies or a Gremlin, and a plane flying through something comparable to The Stand setting, all the mystery, terror, and the supernatural at 20000 feet to 34000 feet and decreasing.There is splendid reading awaiting, some tales thrilling and have you hooked in with great anticipation of what will happen next.Holidays over for most, all flying one needs to do could be ov...

    A wonderful collection of creepy, thrilling, fascinating stories. If like me, you already find flying a precarious challenge, these stories are ready-made for you. They will get your heart racing, and you will be soon flipping pages rapidly, hoping for a smooth landing. The best pieces are "Cargo"; "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet"; "Two Minutes Forty-Five Seconds"; "You Are Released"; "The Turbulence Expert" and "Falling."

    The stories are very different, but this is a very good anthology !They range from very scary ("Cargo" & "Diablitos" ) to some more realistic (but therefore more scary) stories like the one from Joe Hill (my favorite), and some other occurring in different time and places (eg, the ancient China).Overall, it was a very good anthology, and I like the tone that Bev Vincent has put into his afterword.Furthermore, but not the least interesting, this i...

    Well, I had high hopes (sorry for the pun) for this anthology, but I’m sorry to say I was disappointed. As expected, the only stories worth a read were authored by Stephen King, Joe Hill and Richard Matheson. All three were excellent and beautifully written. The others were simply blah! Especially the poem at the end of the book, WTF?

    3.5-4 ish. As an iffy flyer it wouldn't take much to horrify me and with no trips on the horizon I was looking for cheap thrills. As an anthology I had heard a couple of the stories, some were dull, loved his sons contribution, enjoyed kings participation. Overall it was good, but I had sky high expectations 🚀
  • Alex Bear
    The one by Joe Hill was the star of the collection. Cargo by E Michael Lewis at the beginning wasn't a bad hook, but everything else didn't really...take off.
  • Sasha Carpenter
    A couple of the stories in this collection were not the greatest, but most were very enjoyable and gripping. Joe Hill and Stephen King delivered amazing stories, as always.

    Zombies on a Plane! Yes!

    I’m already terrified of flying, so I’m not sure why I read this 😂The story by Joe Hill scared the shit out of me, because it seems like it could happen.
