Local Author Glenn Porzig and 80’s Scream Queen Brinke Stevens Team Up to Give the Devil His Due!

“Darkness Unbound: Lady in Black” delivers Satanic horror in print, Kindle and Audible formats!

Serial killings, demonic possessions and other horrors are in store for readers and audio book listeners of “Darkness Unbound: Lady in Black,” Louisville author Glenn Porzig’s Satanic thriller available now on Amazon and Audible. Porzig’s novella is the first in an intended series followed by “Darkness Unbound: Terror of Night,” and it’s the first of Porzig’s books to be released as an audio book narrated by 1980’s Scream Queen royalty, Brinke Stevens.

Horror fans of the halcyon days of the 1980’s VHS horror boom will likely have fond memories of Brinke Stevens, who got her start exercising her lungs in “The Slumber Party Massacre” (1982) and went on to star in such low budget classics as “Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama” (1988), “Nightmare Sisters” (1988), “Transylvania Twist” (1989) and “The Haunting Fear” (1990). Stevens also holds a Master’s Degree in Marine Biology from the Scripps Institute of Oceanography in California. Here she lends her distinctive voice to all the characters in Porzig’s demonic chiller.

Porzig is probably best known for his four issue comic book mini-series, “Ace of Diamonds,” published by Lone Star Press about fifteen years ago, but he has also published short stories in horror anthologies and worked behind the scenes on the SyFy Channel shock-umentaries, “The Roswell Crash: Startling New Evidence” and “The New Roswell: Kecksburg Exposed.” Growing up a horror fan, Porzig sites Rod Serling’sNight Gallery” and “Kolchak: The Night Stalker” as major influences on him as a youngster.

Darkness Unbound: Lady in Black” introduces heroine Sister Marian, a young nun raised by the church after suffering demonic possession as a young child in a massacre that resulted in the murders of her entire family. Saved by an elderly priest and a young police detective, Drake, thirteen years ago, Sister Marian has grown up to be one tough nun. She’s now a self-defense instructor still dealing with the psychological scars of her possession.

When a new series of grisly ritualistic murders appear to be copycats of the original murders 13 years prior, Sister Marian re-teams with Detective Drake to try to uncover the identity of the serial killer behind the carnage. Is someone intentionally recreating the original murder scenes? Has the demon that Sister Marian once escaped returned to finish the sinister job it started years ago?

Porzig’s narrative reads like the pilot to a supernatural cable TV series that combines the investigative odd couple aspect of “The X-Files” and the cops VS demonic possession themes of “Deliver Us from Evil” (2014). The hook is definitely the beautiful and tough Lady in Black herself, Sister Marian, suffering from debilitating guilt for her role in the murder of her own parents. Although possessed by a demon and unable to control her actions, she witnessed the entire event through her own eyes and now has a psychic connection to the demonic entity that possessed her.

Drake, a traditional tough-as-nails Noir-style detective, serves as both a protector/father figure and a man of action with a background in supernatural cases. Together they try to find and stop whoever is behind this new bloody rampage.

Stevens’ narration lends just the right voice to Sister Marian, with a mix of vulnerability and toughness, and handles the rest of the cast well too. Brinke’s many years of experience in the horror genre provides the listener with a jolt of nostalgic fun when she embodies the voice of the demon as well.
