        Stephen has done a little bit of everything in his life A little school, a little college, a little death metal, a lot of comic books and a whole lot of violence Now let s not get ahead of ourselves Let s build up the momentum for you He owned a comic book store by the name of Hooked on Comics for several years before the industry imploded Luckily, he got out when the getting was good Then he became a world famous video pirate for 7 years and turned it into a world class underground video store in Ybor City FL by the name of Video Mayhem The next logical step was to get into the movie business That s when Unearthed Films was born back in 2001.With his savvy looks and reputation Stephen took Unearthed Films into uncharted territory and became the most extreme DVD label in the US and can even be said, of the world With releases like THE GUINEA PIG SERIES, AFTERMATH, SLAUGHTERED VOMIT DOLLS and producing such gore tastic delights like PHILOSOPHY OF A KNIFE and SLOW TORTURE PUKE CHAMBER Unearthed Films has been heralded as the hardest film company this side of Hell.During all of that time, Stephen wrote screenplays and rewrites for independent companies while working hard on his memoir, HELLUCINATION Stephens fan base and connections in the horror industry and comic book world, have been shocked by his bold display and attitude for his newest novel No one was ready for the president of Unearthed Films to step into the limelight and tell everyone he has met God, danced with the Devil and has been to Hell.Neither did they know that, at one time Stephens psychedelic conquest of this reality and into the next, would rival Hunter S Thompson and Ken Kesey s drug intake.Stephen came back from the other side of this reality with fresh and invigorating tales that go beyond simple horror, psychology and theology Even though HELLUCINATION took him ten years to write, his new novel is the 3rd of the way done and I have read it, in screenplay format and I have to say It s unlike anything I have ever read and I am really looking forward to the novel form But yet I read Hellucination and it made me question everything about me and scare the living Hell into me I wasn t expecting this from him, just as you won t Steve asked me to write his biography because he s not into selling himself I m David Hood and I ve known Steve for about ten years now I m his graphic designer and website developer I have to tell you, when you re with him and he tells you what happened to him It gives you shivers because there is no hesitancy, no doubt what he went through I saw him at an author panel at a convention last week and one of the moderators asked Stephen what his book was about The room was filled with over 50 people and he began telling them the truth of Hellucination, meeting God, being manipulated by the Devil, having drinks with self proclaimed Antichrists and then being sent to Hell after his meeting with God and the room fell silent And, when he was done it stayed silent for over a minute until one of the others authors said Listen to the silence in this room I have never heard it this quite, not even in church for this long Everyone laughed to make themselves at ease I know it s on video because somebody was videotaping it I m going to have to find it because it s very spooky Steve, I hope you keep this part in It was so cool to watch you shock so many people in a room to dead silence So that s Stephen in a nutshell David Hood

    1. A trip definitely a trip. I have to tip my hat to Mr. Biro, the man definitely did his homework before starting this memoir. The cinematic touches, the writing just bleeds to be made into a movie. I could read between the lines and picture camera pans.It was a very good read, and after finishing "Different Seasons" by King this was right up that alley, a novella sized read that packs a serious punch and leaves you thinking. Hellucination is Biro's quest to find God, through the use of psychedeli [...]

    4. 11/20/11 - Wow! How do you rate a book like this when 5 stars is not enough? Try 500.First off, this is not a book it's an experience Fasten your seatbelts people. You'll need them for this one. It's one hell of a ride; literally. This is the stuff of nightmares; the biblical hell. After reading Mr. Biro's memoir 4 times, I'm finally able to finish this review. His detailed account of his experiences will stun you, shock you, and terrify you. At different times while reading, I became breathless [...]


    5. 11/15/11 Just started it and finished the 1st chapter and whoa LOL Finished the second chapter and then I put it down. The 1st chapter frightened me, quite a bit. Then the author delved into his childhood which was a welcome change from the intensity of the 1st chapter. I met the author at a horror convention at the authors table and we spoke for a bit and the way he described his book and what he went through and seen, I just couldn't understand it at the time.I saw someone else writing a revie [...]


    6. HELLUCINATION, a memoir by horror film distributor Stephen Biro, is not your average trip down Memory Lane. Using LSD and nitrous oxide to push beyond the boundaries of his own sanity, Hellucination is the true story of one man's personal quest to find God and the answers to some of life's most important questions.In the process of seeking the Truth through drugs and pop culture, the author encounters the Devil, and then finds himself plunging into the very depths of Hell. Wandering amongst a co [...]


    7. All I can say is WOW!!!! I met Stephen at a local book signing he was doing and I bought a copy and he told me about so here I am. Now I wasn't expecting this book to be this good but meeting him and telling me about it, I was just too curious to not buy it.Little did I know what I was in for. His candor about his life and his quest to find God is simply marvelous. I found myself laughing, crying and marvelling at the book he wrote and I couldn't put it down. The way he has with words is amazin [...]


    8. Talk about a wild ride! I have to say this book takes the cake in mind bending descriptions and pensive theological discussions. Stephen Biro relates, in an unconventional memoir, his experience in finding God. It's not an easy journey he partakes in, but it's a journey he commits himself fully towards. I find that commitment and dedication quite appealing, especially in this world of distractions. The strongest aspect of Biro's writing, besides his conviction in his beliefs, would be his creati [...]


    9. Bought this at Screamefest when I met the author at one of the horror panels. I sat down last night to read it and couldn't put it down till 4 in the morning. I had to finish it today actually. I wasn't expecting this to be so deep and expecially this violent but it all made sense. This book twisted and turned and took an a life of it's own but it's the authors life and his honesty was shocking and his experiences, searching for God was extraordinary. Do I believe he met God and the Devil and we [...]


    10. Review: Hellucination: A Memoir by Stephen Biro.Hellucination is a book like no other and is a bit hard to categorize. There is some horror, a touch of auto-biography, some fantasy and above all, a bizarro tale of one man's trip to discover himself and to answer the big question there someone watching over us?I admit to having a hard time describing the book without giving too much away and I don't like spoiler reviews. All I can say is that you really need to read Hellucination. It is an intrig [...]


    11. Take a trip literally into the mind of Stephen Biro. The memoirs are trailed out from childhood times "feeling powerful" I remember thinking I had super powers after watching a movie as well.Then the fun part the experiments with LSD and nitrous in punch balloons. Kids drugs are bad but fun to read in likes of Hunter S. Thompson and now Stephen Biro. Jacobs Ladder had a call out in this book which is one of my favorite movies.The middle of book had to much God talk for me, but the end makes up f [...]


    12. This is one of those books where if someone told you how the whole thing would end, you wouldn't touch it with a ten feed pole. The premise is sound - using drugs to find God, tug his shoulder and scream "Gotcha!" - but then it bogs you down with the memoirs of a delusional, pseudo-atheist, self-centered individual, and the torrents of drug-induced verbal surreal imagery that you, the reader, are supposed to experience the exact emotional way as the author desired. The highlight of the book is a [...]


    13. The author starts out with his "id" and "superego" argueing. A short biograhy of his young life follows. The author wrote down what caused his atheism. The character starts taking acid trips. He wants to find God. He suffers vivid hallucinations. He even "talks" to Morpheus from The Matrix. He starts seeing entities and wonders if all insane people are really talking to God. He says God and the Devil talk to him. His mind is battling to find the ultimate truth-is there a God? He meets God. He bu [...]


    14. Couldn't finish. Made it 75% through by skipping large nonsensical portions. I expected a drug memoir, and got a drug-induced mental breakdown and visions of God and Satan.The fact that the author gave it four five-star reviews from his own profile is also dodgy as hell.How is that even possible? He gets one star from me purely for finishing this load of crap.


    15. Just awful. One star is overly generous, it was a huge struggle to finish this rubbish, but i don't like to rate a book unless i can say i've read the whole thing. The conclusions Biro comes to throughout the book are so pathetic and childish at best.


    16. The prose left something to be desired. A intriguing coming of age and understanding story, even for a militant atheist such as myself.

    18. I Could not be more satisfied with this Book, and the feelings that it manages to put inside you are very Strong. It's a heavy read, but at the same time, reads like a Classic Stephen King Novella. Like, say 'Stand by Me'. I'm speaking about the Parts in Stephen's Book describing his upbringing etc. He writes like a Pro. When the time goes by, the hours that have passed seems like minutes and he just grips you in with a enjoyable read, from the Very First Page, to the Upllfiting Climax of the Bo [...]


    19. First let me get this disclaimer out of the wayThe author provided a copy of "Hellucination" to me for review. Now, let me get to the review!"Hellucination" is not your average memoir. It is not your everyday religious discovery story. It is not a run-of-the mill drug addiction survival tale. Yet, it encompasses all of these and a whole lot more while wrapped in a very readable and hard to put down package. We all have a journey we take through life. Many of us seek purpose for our existence. Th [...]


    20. I have struggled for nearly 24 hours with how to review this, and frankly I am still stumped. So rather than give a "review" I will just put down my thoughts. As someone who is willing to read just about anything I was excited to get this book. But I must confess, I was under the impression that it was fiction, I have a feeling that perhaps I would have liked it better that way. Through most of the first half of this book the only thing I could think was, "Umokay." The idea of "finding God" thro [...]


    21. After reading the book I needed to take a few days and digest what I had read. The catholic in me wants to say he’s going to hell for this but the majority of me is riddled with questions.The book starts off strong as Stephen introduces us to his early years and allows us to follow along through his life so we can all get a better understanding of how his journey came to be. His look back through the past has its moments of laughter as well as the recalled moments of pain with his family. It [...]


    22. Hellucination is the perfect example of how words have the ability to be the most powerful way of human expression. This book grabs hold of you with fleshing ripping talons that bury themselves into your psyche and soul and take you on ride that overwhelms, delights and fascinates. The author Stephen Biro allows you to connect with him intimately along the journey that is his memoir, and I am sure that anybody who reads Hellucination will be able to find a common thread interwoven in the collect [...]


    23. In the search for why we are here and why we are who we are, Biro takes this to question to a whole new level not seen in the yeras since the electric Kool Aid days. Ken Kesey and Hunter Thompson have nothing on Biro! His journey begins with the ingestion of of massive quantities of LSD and he soon finds his journey to see the almighty turned into literally the low road to Hell. In this book he describes his conversations with Satan, his argument with God and his final enlightenment into both an [...]


    24. This book was certainly a unique one to read. It entertained me and bothered me at the same time. I agree with another reviewer who suggested that taking massive doses of mind altering drugs is not the best way to seek God. Drugs create a world of delusion, not truth. Apparently, the author found a good deal of Biblical truth in spite of the drugs. God does work in mysterious ways. All this being said, the book does have value and could even be of spiritual help to those in need of such, and who [...]


    25. Mixed feelings on this book. Great story of God redeeming the so called un-redeemable. The author is very honest and blunt so this is not a book i would recommend to young readers (very explicit language) but i do like the book for the same reason. You see changes in his quest to seek God through out. Good book but he could have tamed it a tad language to reach a wider audience. Or maybe this is indeed a book for those who society labels as lost causes.


    26. The author, Stephen Biro, contacted me after I had written a review of 'Dialogue with the Devil'. He offered me a copy of Hellucination and asked for honest feedback. Due to the subject matter and importance to Mr. Biro's life, I'm taking deliberate time to read and re-read this book before offering any review of it.


    27. Hellucination, is a trip (pun intended), it is as if you fell into the rabbit hole with the Mad Hatter as he joined the party. Do not get me wrong, it is a well though out and well organized journal of one man's life from drugs to salvation. The map that he used to get there is extremely unconventional however; it is one that I am familiar with. In my drug days, I also had feelings and compulsions put on me by the Lord and although there were major life/death decisions to be made (apparently, I [...]


    28. In this prequel to Dialogue with the Devil, we meet a younger Stephen, who, after an eventful childhood, makes a living selling bootleg videos and is addicted to hallucinogen drugs. Like many people, he could have gone on leading this kind of existence for the rest of his (short, no doubt) life if it were not for a sudden revelation: drugs open the door to another plane of existence, drugs can lead to God. With his poison of predilection, Stephen sets on a quest that will give him much more than [...]
