Artist: The Wildhearts

Synopsis: Dingy kitchen. Yellowy light. Two bad men are sat at the table. Gambling. An old man, with disfigured face and a milky blind eye, and a younger man, clearly filled with hate for his opponent. Tempers will fly, blood will be spilled...

"Sleepaway" is a gory horror flick not for the feint-hearted. The story tips its hat to "The Telltale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe, and was commissioned by Ginger Wildhearts personally.
