Od kolijevke pa do groba

Teško je raditi s mladima, a još teže kad ti učenici skrivaju dijelove tijela pod krevetom.

Tajne, laži i smrtonosna prošlost miješaju se na riječkom brdu u ovoj mračnoj urbanoj fantastici s elementima krimića i horora, inspiriranoj hrvatskim narodnim pričama.

It Eats Us From the Inside

Under the surface of the family reunion lie old tales and hidden regret, while from the sea comes a creeping threat to the small town and beyond, slowly but surely spreading farther from the Adriatic coast.

Taken at the tide of change, nothing and no one will stay the same.

It Eats Us From the Inside is a quiet, claustrophobic near-future horror novella about changes from the outside and from within, ecological disaster, aquatic dread and Slavic folklore.
