Something far beyond comprehension is happening to an innocent sock puppet in a dark attic, and there is only one sock that can help. That sock has been sent as a last resort to try and save her. That sock is The Soxorcist.
A gross-out horror story by Jamie Kort, ripping off extreme horror master Matthew Vaughn and his stories, The Sexorcist and Sexorcism. Because hell yea.

From the screwed-up mind of the man who brought us the sex lives of sock puppets, we are given the gift that just keeps on giving in The Soxorcist. Think of a rip off of the horror movie, The Exorcist. Being completely candour – I fucking loved it – it was funny, entertaining, well written and just plain disgusting. The description had me in a tug of war between laughing and being completely shocked. I had whiplash.
Books are my escape from a mad life. I don’t take them too seriously and I love it even more when books leave all the boundaries and expectations behind. I love a bizarro horror story and the Soxorcist gave me everything I needed at exactly the right time. But on the opposite side of the spectrum, books also give me hope – hope that my life won’t turn out quite as badly as some of the characters I read about. I don’t want to think about my socks shagging, or why that hole in the sock appeared. I just don’t but Jamie Kort has an imagination that I could only dream about having – it’s fucked up but unique and I really hope he continues to write stories that eek that kind of emotion out from his readers.
So yeah, this short story messes you up. It’s weird as shit, it’s depraved, disgusting. Jamie Kort doesn’t know how to write to comfy, easy horror – only the kind to make you feel deeply uncomfortable. So, if you’re looking for a short read in the run up to Halloween pick this up – it’ll leave you feeling more disturbed and uneasy than ever. Just pay attention the next time you stick your foot into your sock, you don’t know what lies within.
