What if you had the power to decide who lives and who dies?
We suggest you obey the rules. Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone's name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.
The Netflix original film is directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch, You’re Next) and stars Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Paul Nakauchi (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End), Shea Whigham (American Hustle) and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man). Death Note will premiere exclusively on Netflix on August 25th.

Long term readers of Ginger Nuts of Horror should be well aware of my love for Laura Mauro's writing. In years to come when our descendants compile lists of great writers Laura Mauro's name is one that will feature on all of the best list. Emotive, intelligent writing that seeps into your subconscious where sits like an icy ghost, she truly is a writer of powerful stories.
Laura has just announced that her novella Naming The Bones will be the next publication from Dark Minds Press. The Dark Minds novella series has been roaring success with previous entries coming from the likes of Ben Jones, Gary Fry and Rich Hawkins. With their distinctive black and red cover design these books are as good to look at as they are to read. So glad to see that they have stuck with this winning brand image for this years batch of books.
The book is due for launch around July, but stay in touch as we will have more details as the are made public. And stay tuned for a review of the book to coincide with a competition to win a copy of the novella.
