Welcome to Frightmare City

The latest project from creator AC Turner

"Never ride the subway. Never leave midtown Manhattan. Stay inside after dark - no matter what!"

Frightmare City is a monthly crime-horror hybrid comic from award-winning writer and filmmaker, AC Turner.

Recently, AC discovered "Welcome To Fear City", a long forgotten pamphlet distributed by the NYPD. In it, a Hooded Death's Head warned readers to "Stay away from New York" as authorities grappled with uncontrollable violence that left the city teetering on the brink of bankruptcy.

Reading the pamphlet, AC thought "what if"?

What if "Welcome To Fear City" was actually a thinly veiled warning against something more sinister than conventional crime. Something more evil. Something that even the Police themselves couldn't handle.

With this in mind, AC began crafting his own nightmarish version of New York. A city where crimes are perpetrated and punished each in their own horrible way.

Welcome to Frightmare City. Population... you.

Frightmare City

Satisfying and gruesome, Frightmare City does not go light on the scares. In the same vein as Creepshow and Tales from the Crypt, AC Turner brings us well-written, bone chilling tales of terror that flow from one to the next with a clear cohesiveness.
Frightmare City is an impressively polished indie comic series worth binging.
Five stars for Frightmare City!

Frightmare City

Great, well paced stories - there's relationship drama, criminal misdeeds, and teenage hijinks, all with a sinister spin. Frightmare City has serious potential and I can't wait to see more. And trust me when I say January's issue is going to blow you away!
9 out of 10 for Frightmare City!

I just binge read Frightmare City and wish there was more! AC Turner's vision of New York City riddled with sex, violence, and crime is so up my alley it HURTS! Each story ends with a burst of spooky violence that I definitely recommend for some fast and fun horror!
