33145741  The Night of the Beasts by [Brown, Eric S. ]

Welcome to Freakin Fridays, where I share my reviews of books that scare you, thrill you, and get those endorphins pumping.

Today I’m back with two more stories about the big hairy dude, Sasquatch. These aren’t about the warm and cuddly ones either.

My Review

I’ve watched a lot of horror movies about Sasquatch. Read a bunch of books too. So I was rubbing my greedy little hands together when I got this book. I knew it was going to be creepy fun. I watched The Legend Of Boggy Creek recently. Funny that I remember it differently now then when I watched it all those years ago. It still has a chilling atmosphere. And I think this would be a good movie too.

The characters do everything wrong, even the ones who know what’s out in them woods. Sitting ducks, I tell ya. You have the the young adults, spending time in a cabin in the big old woods. There’s the creepy neighbor who drops ominous remarks about what might be out there in them woods. And then there’s the police officer who knows what’s out there and goes after it anyway.

Got the picture. Good. Everything goes to hell in a hand basket in no time. People are killed, there bodies mutilated or eaten. The big hairy dude is pissed off and hungry and the puny humans don’t stand a chance. I think you’d better bring a tank to take him down.

Some may not agree with my 4 star rating, so let me explain. I went into this story for some campy fun and lots of gore. I had no expectations of a deep, thoughtful story. So, I got just what I wanted. Ate it up and wished it was longer.

My Review

I’ve got several of Eric’s Bigfoot War books to read and when I spotted this little freebie, I grabbed it to see what I might be in for.

The hairy ones with the big feet come calling. Yep, there’s a slew of them and they tear through a town, maiming and killing everyone unfortunate enough to be there.

A security guard’s routine night duty at a hospital becomes more than he could ever have imagined as ambulances race to the emergency room, loaded with people horribly maimed. Reports are flooding in about a big animal, loose in the town, attacking anything that moves. But with so many injured, it can’t be just one, can it?

It’s no words wasted and complete chaos in these few pages. If you like em fast and furious with cryptids on the rampage, this could be one for you. Just keep in mind it’s a tiny story that comes from the world of Bigfoot War.

Synopsis

Eric S Brown, author of the highly praised Bigfoot War trilogy, brings you this exclusive story which takes place inside the world of Bigfoot War II: Dead in the Woods. Night of the Beasts is an apocalyptic tale that mixes a zombie pandemic with a brand new take on the Sasqautch mythos. It tells the story of one hospital’s fate on the night the world as we know it ends and the beasts emerge from the woods to feast on human flesh.

  1. I read Boggy Creek because I’m fascinated by the real life legend but I didn’t much like this book at all! I have the Bigfoot Wars books and dvd which I hope to enjoy. I did enjoy a Bigfoot book recently though-Swamp Monster Massacre by Hunter Shea. Night of the Beasts-they want 99p for a 6 page book on Amazon! No way am I paying for a 6 page book!

      I liked this version of Boggy Creek. I went into it not expecting an epic read and went with it. The Night Of The Beasts I grabbed some time ago as a freebie. I wouldn’t have paid for it either as its so short. And I’ve read most of Hunter’s books and plan to read Swamp Monster Massacre. I’m out of other Bigfoot books now. LOL

  2. You and my dad would get along great, your both fans of Big Foot…lol. He went to a lecture even on Big Foot and they talked about The Boggy Creek monster…lol.

    They sound like fun campy reads,

    fast and furious with cryptids on the rampage maybe work for me since I’m such a dark weirdo 😉

  4. The Boggy Creek movie from the 1970s? Ha ha. I saw that at the drive in! I’ll have to check out the book. :)

      I remember that movie differently than when I watched it recently. I think I’ve watched so many that I got them all mixed together. LOL

  5. You always have such great creepy books. Love the reviews.
