Jason Voorheesberg Reviews Danger Slater’s ‘I Will Rot Without You’

“WHEN THE WORLD FALLS APART AND YOUR BODY STARTS TO ROT, LET THE ROACHES LEAD.

Meet Ernie. His life is a mess. Gretchen’s gone, and the apartment they once shared in this grey, grim city is now overrun with intelligent mold and sinister bugs.

Then his neighbor Dee shows up, so smart and lovely. If he can just get past the fact that her jealous boyfriend could reach out of her blouse and punch him in the face at any moment, this could be the start of a beautiful friendship.

Unfortunately for all involved, a Great Storm is coming and it will wash away everything we’ve ever known about the human heart.

“I WILL ROT WITHOUT YOU is like Cronenberg’s THE FLY if it had been directed by Frank Zappa and Bruce Bickford. Nightmarishly rich in vision, absurdly and painfully hilarious, sorrowfully poignant, and bristling with outrageous surprises that never ever ever stop coming till it’s done.” – John Skipp, from his introduction”
