YMMV / The Festering

Go To

  • Crosses the Line Twice: It's nowhere near as bad as Eat Them Alive, but it's bursting at the seams with gruesome skin diseases, body horror, misogyny and rape, so it's a definite runner up.
  • Narm: Tommy raping Penny. It's supposed to be horrifying, but is instead unintentionally (uncomfortably) hilarious. It's possibly the only time in literary history where someone has suffocated from being kissed because their lover's lips are too big and swollen. It rivals Chris' death in Slimer for "most unintentionally funny 'death-by-sex' scene."

  • Squick: The entire novel, particularly the rape scenes.
