Praise for Matt Serafini

“Matt Serafini is a literary writer with a heart full of slasher films.

“Matt Serafini’s deep knowledge and appreciation of the genre shines in Under the Blade — a novel with echoes of horror’s paperback glory days, but spills new blood with a modern protagonist and style. I loved it!” – Brian Keene

“Serafini is near the very top of his class in his generation of genre writers.” – Bryan Smith, author of The Killing Kind and 68 Kill

“Serafini takes you on one hell of a ride!” – Scream Magazine
