Huis van gruwels is die skokverhaal van die sogenaamde “Springs-monster” wat op die wreedste manier denkbaar alles van sy gesin weggeneem het, maar ook ’n storie van hoop oor hoe ’n dapper jong vrou uiteindelik geluk en genesing vind.

Landi is die oudste van vyf kinders wat uit die sogenaamde Springs-gruwelhuis gered is. Sy is nou 21 jaar oud en vertel vir die eerste keer haar verstommende verhaal. In Mei 2014 het die polisie dié huis ontdek waar ’n sadistiese pa sy vrou en vyf kinders vir jare tussen vullis en rotte aangehou, getreiter en gemartel het. In ysingwekkende besonderhede onthou Landi hoe hul pa hulle aangerand, met ’n skokstok geskok, met ’n gaspistool geskiet en met ’n blaasvlam gebrand het, hoe hy martelmetodes nagevors en hulle byna in ’n bad verdrink het.

Sy vertel hierdie herinneringe aan Susan Cilliers, ’n ervare joernalis, wat dit met deernis weergee en dit vernuftig met die feite van die polisie-ondersoek en die hofsaak verweef.

My father, the monster of the Springs house of horrors

“I kneel on the foot piece next to the bed and lower my head. A piercing, burning pain engulfs my entire face. Dad has kicked me. Blood is gushing from my nose. Then I feel cold water being poured all over my body. Electrical wires shock me, I can’t see through the blood. God, help me.” (Translated)

Landi is the eldest of five children who were rescued from the so-called Springs house of horror. She is now 21 years old and tells her astonishing story for the very first time. In May 2014, police raided the house where a sadistic father had imprisoned, abused and tortured his wife and five children in a rat-infested den of sleaze.

In chilling detail, Landi recalls how their father assaulted them by tasering them, shooting them with a gas pistol and burning them with a blowtorch, how he researched torture methods and nearly drowned them in a bathtub.

She relates her memories to Susan Cilliers, an experienced journalist, who documents it with compassion, skilfully combining it with facts that emanated from the police investigation and court case.

House of Horrors is the shocking tale of a father who took everything from his family in the cruellest possible way, but it is also a story of hope about a brave young girl who eventually finds happiness and healing.
