Rue Morgue talks about "Bad Medicine"!
“Anyone who remembers the classic horror anthologies such as ASYLUM,
with Robert Powell and Peter Cushing, or King and Romero’s CREEPSHOW
will have an idea of what VLM Productions is hoping to achieve with its next project.
BAD MEDICINE is a psychological horror film that contains five stories – or segments –
united by a wraparound story. The film is set in a modern day mental health unit where a
therapist is holding a group therapy session. Five participants each recount their story in the
hope the therapist can resolve their trauma and help them to move on. But what happens if the
therapist is not what they seem and has something far more sinister in mind for their patients?”

Rue Morgue #139 (print and digital magazine) also reviews The Venus Complex:
"Shocking and explicit, Barbie Wilde's The Venus Complex is an intimate tour of
Michael Friday's mind as he morphs from a misogynistic, hyper-intelligent university
professor into a sexually-charged, calculating serial killer. Written in journal form,
Friday reveals his most gory necrophilic fantasies, and then makes them a reality.
Not for sensitive readers; after finishing this book you might never feel clean again."

Review of The Venus Complex by Garret Cook
for The Imperial Youth Review:
"Read the damn book. Watch every movie the lady’s been in,
read every antho in which this woman’s appeared.
Fall in love with tainted love and fight the frightfuls,
The Venus Complex is, in every sense of the word, the real thing."

Brutal as Hell's Annie Riordan reviews The Venus Complex:

"Not even in Hell’s deepest, darkest labyrinth could you find anything sicker, nastier
or more depraved than the narcissistic conquests of Michael Friday, the killer you should hate,
but can’t help but like a little bit. And Wilde’s ability to make this smug, arrogant bastard at all likable
is both amazing and deeply disturbing. My moral compass tells me I should hate her for this,
but my morbid curiosity demands that she produce a sequel post haste."

The British Fantasy Society's Chris Limb reviews The Venus Complex:

"This is not a novel for the faint of heart and definitely NSFPT (Not Safe For Public Transport),
but the skill with which it is written means that some of the
darker imagery will haunt the reader long after they turn the final page.

Barbie's short story, POLYP, originally published in The Mammoth Book of Body Horror,
has now been reprinted in the new anthology, The Unspoken, edited by William Meikle
with a Forward by Ramsey Campbell. All profits from the book go to the cancer charity,
the Beatson Cancer Research Institute.
Amazon review: "Polyp by Barbie Wilde is another standout story.
Crazy, gut wrenchingly horrible, it is one of the wackiest tales I have read in a long while."

Snakebite Horror has made The Venus Complex their Book of the Month:
"Barbie Wilde has an excellent grasp of the male POV as she walks us through the creation
of a killer. She takes the reader on a journey into the mind of a twisted individual, as he comes
to terms with who and what he really is. This tightly-written page-turner is not for the faint of
heart. It contains some (amazingly written) graphic sex and death scenes.  Step into the shoes
of a serial killer and pick up your copy of The Venus Complex..."

Cool review of The Venus Complex by New York Times
bestselling author/editor/filmmaker John Skipp at Fangoria Online: 
"But I think what I like most about this news story is that she kicked my ass

And that is a terrible, beautiful thing."

as one of the finest purveyors of erotically charged horror fiction around.
Her first full length novel THE VENUS COMPLEX is featured, along with a new
interview with Wilde, in the upcoming FANGORIA #321…

Sci-Fi Bulletin's Paul Simpson reviews The Venus Complex:

"Barbie Wilde has a knack for getting inside her character’s head
and taking us with her on his journey of self-delusion – in fact it’s almost the exact
opposite of a road to self-discovery."
*
"Verdict: A view into the abyss made all the more chilling by the realisation
that it could all too easily be exactly how such a person considers the world."

Great review of The Venus Complex by Blood E. Bastard at the Horror News Network:
"The Venus Complex is a deftly plotted and calculated work of terror. Like the painted masterworks
Michael Friday draws from to inspire his blood-fest, each verbal brushstroke falls on the page at the
precise spot Barbie Wilde wants it."

The Venus Complex is on Gabino Iglesias of HorrorTalk's Top Books of 2012 list at Number 3:
"A novel by a female Cenobite that gives the world a smart, artistic, cynical, cultured serial killer who
could give Hannibal Lecter a run for his money. On top of that, this is a poignant, funny, sexually-charged,
hardcore critique of popular culture and a deconstruction of relationships, academia, and art."

Review of The Venus Complex by Gabriel Ricard at Drunk Monkeys:

"The Venus Complex is full of brilliant, flawless touches throughout Michael’s transition
from extremely disturbed, to the kind of serial killer that would eat a guy like Dexter Morgan alive."

"The Venus Complex is the work of someone who loves and understands the inner
workings of truly effective horror, can write with exceptional talent, and combines both of
these things into one of the best depictions of steadily mounting evil this side of Poe.
Or Clive Barker, for that matter. "

Review of The Venus Complex by Gabino Iglesias for Horror Talk:

"While Wilde's smart-yet-unhinged character is definitely one of the main elements making
The Venus Complex a must-read, it's really the author's writing chops that help this tome stand out.
Although this is purely a horror novel, there are passages that make you laugh, a few that wouldn't be
out of place in a critical essay about contemporary television, and some so deliciously vicious, evil,
and coldhearted that they place Michael Friday in the spot I mentioned above:
right next to Hannibal Lecter."

"The Venus Complex is a clever, grisly, art-infused, sexually-charged narrative
that will keep you turning pages."

Click on the photo to read the full review:

*

*

*

The Venus Complex was chosen as one of The Ginger Nuts of Horror "Books of the Year":

"This brilliant look into the mind of a serial killer is full of poetic anger, and beautiful vitriolic
ranting that it makes you wonder from which pit of hell the lovely Barbie came from.  
In a genre saturated with bland serial killers, and even blander plots, this book shines out like a beacon."

Review by Jon Towlson of The Venus Complex in Starburst Magazine:

"Best known for her role as the Female Cenobite in Hellraiser 2, Barbie Wilde is also an
author who has contributed short stories to anthologies as varied as Hellbound Hearts,
Phobophobia, Mutation Nation
and the Mammoth Book of Body Horror. As might be expected,
her writing tends towards the transgressive, and in its mix of psychological horror, art
and eroticism, her debut novel, The Venus Complex is no exception."
...
"Although The Venus Complex had been compared to American Psycho,
mainly because its first-person narration draws you inside the mind of the serial killer protagonist,
Barbie Wilde’s novel is distinctly Hitchcockian in its portrayal of murderous obsession."

Very cool review of The Venus Complex in the new Fear Magazine, November 2012:

"… the Professor appears, even in his writings, to be a normal man, perfectly capable
of living alongside any one of us without raising suspicion. And that is Wilde's genius in charting
the rise of a sociopath of cleverness and cunning enough to match that even of Dr Hannibal Lecter
(God knows where and how she did her research). She presents us with a normal human being
capable of doing the most deviant atrocities, being able to justify them so that he can live with
himself. And yet, as a reader, I found myself drawn to this character with an increasing degree of
fascination. If you are a fan of both the crime and horror genres and want something special
to read this Christmas, go for The Venus Complex."

For the full review from The Ginger Nuts of Horror, go to:
http://www.gingernutsofhorror.com/4/post/2013/04/the-venus-complex-by-barbie-wilde.html

Excerpts from the review:
"This is one hell of a novel.
Barbie Wilde has written one of the most tense and powerful stories I have read in a long long time.
This is not a book for the faint of heart, there are passages in here that will truly shock you…" 

"I don't know from which dark recess of Barbie's mind she dragged this story from,
but she is really beginning to scare me.  It is as though some dark primal rage takes control
of her mind when she writes stories like this…"

"...fear not, this book isn't just about shocking the reader, which it does to the maximum.  
This book is also extremely well written. You will become captivated by the sheer talent of Barbie's writing.  
She manages to turn a vile evil character into someone that you will perversely start rooting for..."

"From reading her short stories I knew Barbie Wilde had a talent for writing.  
With The Venus Complex, Barbie's talent has been given a much larger canvas to play with.  
And Barbie has filled every square inch of the canvas with a stunningly brilliant work of fiction."

Fab review of POLYP by the Ginger Nuts of Horror:

“I normally have two ways in which I attack an anthology: the first is to go to my favourite author and the second is to start at the beginning. I usually do this when there are no authors that I am familiar with. TMBODH threw a spanner into the working of this process. I just didn't know where to start, other than not starting with Stephen King’s story Survivor Type. Hand on heart I have never been a fan of King.

So the honour fell to Barbie Wilde. I had just read one of her stories in another anthology [Phobophobia] and I had just finished compiling an interview with her.  Barbie's story, Polyp, more than lived up to the task.  This a wonderfully disgusting story that manages to both shock the reader and make them giggle.  Barbie has created a brilliant twist on the creature feature genre.  I really enjoyed how the tale went from being a very personal story into an apocalyptic cliff hanger.  After reading this story, which in all reality was chosen at random, I knew this book was going to be great read.”

Great mention for POLYP in Johnny Main's review of The Mammoth Book of Body Horror:

"It's surprising that a history of body horror in literature hasn't been done before now - so thanks to Marie O' Regan and Paul Kane for this treasure trove of stories - ranging from some classics in the genre, The Tell-Tale Heart, Survivor Type and The Body Politic to some stories that will almost certainly become classics of their time - the absurdist, very entertaining shocker Polyp to the brilliantly executed Sticky Eye - one of my favourite new stories in this anthology."

Review for U FOR URANOPHOBIA by the Ginger Nuts of Horror:

"Wow, wow, wow. That pretty much sums up my feelings about this story. Barbie has created a story that reads like a power of nature. Gaia's story is both powerful and deeply shocking. This tale of latent revenge and pent up anger was a joy to read."

ONE OF THE REVIEWS OF SISTER CILICE FROM HELLBOUND HEARTS:

From www.fright.com/edge/2009YearInFiction.htm:

"Finally there’s Barbie Wilde, who played one of the Cenobites of the original HELLRAISER
and contributes “Sister Cilice,” a potent piece of nunspoloitation. It contains plenty of grotesquerie,
and, unlike the majority of the book’s other tales, doesn’t wait until the end to dish it out!"
