Hill House Comics is back and heads are going to roll for making readers wait! The new wave of titles begins with a rancid return trip to bloody Brody Island. For a year now, the mysterious axe that unleashed pandemonium during the hurricane of ’83 has waited at the bottom of the bay but nothing that powerful stays buried. Brody Island has new visitors, and a new sheriff in town, too-not to mention a dangerous great white shark spotted in its waters-and when vacationing couple Calvin Beringer and Arlene Fields find themselves on the wrong side of Brody’s unsavory elements, their beachcombing will turn up something a lot sharper than sea g more

    We're going to need a bigger book! Vicious, disgusting and hilarious debut to what could become an anthology. I can't wait for the tale of the evil soup spoon of Loki in a future book. Read Full Review

    A thoroughly bloody first issue, favoring action over story or characters. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 1, 1970

    Refrigerator Full of Heads #1 exists as a demonstration. That first scene, while building up its series, is designed in such a way as to work as a final filter before readers can get any deeper. For the faint of heart, turn away. Like this sort of thing? Keep reading. That lack of suspense, instead of being a brutal bloodbath, appears to be the intention in this first issue. The characters will need strengthening for the comic to remain interested, although the sheer chaos of the book and distinct artwork may keep people interested for longer. It should be noted that it is not a requirement to have read the previous series. Read Full Review

    The events of 'Basketful of Heads' lead into this new series, with a few new twists and turns. The pacing feels a bit brisk, but the art is quite lovely. Read Full Review

    If you like chaotic gore, this might be the comic for you, but to me, it largely just felt like relentless ugliness without much internal logic. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Oct 20, 2021

    On the upside, Tom Fowler's artwork is always delightful and fits the expected grindhouse stylings. Still, the script is a confusing jumble, and fans of the original series are bound to be disappointed. Read Full Review

    GWW - Brian Villar Oct 19, 2021

    If the purpose of Refrigerator Full of Heads was to mock the absurdity of 80's horror sequels, it did the job. I just hope that the following issues bring clarity to a complicated disaster. Read Full Review
