House Call




Mariam thought it was going to be a weekend of relaxation. She has her little brother to take care of, but she can handle that without much of a problem. That all changes when Vince gets sick, and Mariam has no choice but to call the family doctor.

John and Nick decide tonight is perfect to burglarize a house. They stake the place out and are delighted to find the only people inside are a teenager and a young boy – an easy in-and-out job.

Or so they think.

What ensues is a battle between the siblings that are home alone and the two bad men.

Little do any of them know someone else plans to make a house call of their own.

The ultimate 90s throwback—who put a slasher film in the Home Alone case at Blockbuster? It was Ty Schwamberger, splicing the best of the VHS era together! —Nick Mamatas, author of The Second Shooter and Sabbath

“Dark, edgy, and quickly paced, Ty Schwamberger’s House Call is an unsettling, don’t-answer-the-door chiller that’s sharp as a razor, and just as deadly.” —Greg F. Gifune, author of Midnight Solitaire and God Machine
