Review - The Hillels Have Eyes

The Hillels Have Eyes John Baltisberger A cult under UT, dedicated to perversion and torture, enacts a ritual that demands the murder of a willing sacrifice and an unwilling witness.

Featuring themes of: Mutilation, Lust, Violence


Josh and Alan were accepted into the prestigious UT. Alan seemed to blend in rather well, but Josh always seemed uncomfortable. It’s like he sensed something was off at the campus. Josh’s feelings must have been right because things take an unexpected turn and as more details come out things quickly deteriorate.

Freshmen orientation may have started off okay, but it didn’t take long for that to change. Alan ends up pulling Josh into a dark ritual full of torture that was rather mind blowing. Baltisberger doesn’t leave much to the imagination as he gives the reader a front row seat to the madness. If enjoy fast paced reads with some blood and gore give this one a go.
