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.

Looks good doesn’t it?

I really love reading books about Bigfoot(also called Sasquatch or Skunk Ape). Part of it stems from wondering if they could or do exist.

I’ll tell you this much, I wouldn’t want to meet a Sasquatch like the ones you come across when you read Bigfoot Hunters by Rick Gualtieri.

The creature opened its mouth wide and let loose a roar that sounded as if it had escaped from the gates of Hell itself.”

This book has all the elements of a great horror novel. Crazed Sasquatch’s bring their murderous rage down upon a small isolated town. Not just a few, but a whole tribe of them unleash bloody hell on the unsuspecting townspeople. Most don’t know what is happening until it is too late. The film crew and cast of the television show called Crypto Hunters, stand alongside a mixed bag of survivors and they are not going down without a fight. Once the action hits town, you don’t have time to catch your breath. Buildings are shattered, screams and roars echo through the streets,  and blood paints the walls.

Rick put a unique spin on his book. Throughout the story, parts of it are told from the creatures point of view. You will get a sense of what it is thinking, and it doesn’t look too good for any human they encounter.

“The Alpha was supreme, the Alpha of all alphas. He would kill the two-legged thing slowly… But first he would make the two-legged thing scream. It would scream long and loud, so that all others knew the futility of challenging him.

As for the characters, some I liked, some I wanted to slap silly, and some I felt got their just desserts. Don’t get too attached to them. They can’t all survive this horrific tale.

I loved this book. I had a feeling of deja vu while reading it. If you have ever seen

 or  you will know what I mean. I could just picture Lance Henriksen in 

this book. It just oozes foreboding.

Gratuitous violence scene: Don’t read this if you have a weak stomach!

“The hand grasped the front of Byron’s face, the fingers dug into his scalp. He barely had time for a muffled scream before the fingers cracked through the bone of his skull and pulled. The front of Byron’s head – face, eyes, bone, and muscle – was peeled like a ripe banana.

The creature’s head shot forward towards the raw bleeding cavern that had been Byron Clemon’s face. Its mouth closed around the gaping wound. For the next few minutes, the only sound that penetrated the woods was a thick slurping.”

I warned you. Creatures on a rampage, a well-developed cast of characters, and so much suspense you can’t stand it. Bigfoot Hunters is a horror smorgasbord. Hungry?

5 STARS and a big Thank You to Rick Gualtieri for a scary good story.

Rick has also written a humorous series about Bill the Vampire and has recently released the 3rd book in the series. To purchase these and other books by Rick Gualtieri, just click on the cover images.
