Can anyone help me out?
Horror story featured in a repeated anthology about a horror anthology editor who has submitted to him the first original story he’s gotten in a while, but it’s disturbingly violent, misogynistic and terrible. He eventually meets the author and he’s a creepy dude who lives out in the middle of nowhere with his mother and brother. Editor invited to middle of Appalachian mountains/maybe just goes there? and things are messed up at their house.
End of story is that the stories may be based on some true experiences because the bros are all kinds of unsettling, but the editor is kinda thrilled because he misses the feeling of truly being excited by horror. Final bit is editor getting pumped because they’ve tampered with his car and he’ll have to outwit them in the forest but that’s cool cause he’s read every horror story ever and is ready to rumble.
