Urban Legends that You Can’t Ignore!

Check out what The Scary Reviews said about Monsters Exist!

Review copy provided by in exchange for an honest review

Growing up we have all heard stories or urban legends about monsters and creatures. We’ve seen footage or reports that feel sketchy at best. But we all want to believe them, and why not, it’s fun to think the impossible could be possible. Monsters Exist has 14 short stories covering a variety of monsters. I found a number of stories in this anthology really good. Many hit the spot fulfilling my horror expectations while many fell short and could use more polishing. I’ll cover a few that really hit the spot for this horror fan.

The first story Legend Trippers was a solid tale, an urban legend, and very well told. I liked the characters and plot. I thought the ending gave it that little extra kick to seal the deal making it feel like a story I’ve heard as a kid. Never Sleep Again was a breath of fresh air. This was my kind of story with a beginning, middle and end. I was reminded this was one of my own fears as a child. It was a nice expansion and twist on the classical childhood fear of monsters under the bed. The Voice from the Bottom of the well was a slow mover but the twist at the end gave it a nice finish for me. The antagonist was strongly written to be hated, making the twist better. Eclipse at Wolfcreek was creepy as hell, and well-constructed. We get two monsters, one was the Mothman, the other an old lady. I’m not sure which one was more frightening but I enjoyed the scares equally. No. 7 had great pacing and tension. The monster was never explicitly revealed or described but it wasn’t necessary here. There was enough hints and clues for the reader to fill in the blanks. Criatura was a fast read and fun read with a good sense of humor about the monsters. It had plenty of the blood and guts variety horror but not over the top. I’m a horror fan through and through but I find spiders one of the nastiest creatures in existence. Bitten took that weakness and repulsion of those eight-legged monsters and made me cringe all the way to the end of the story. This was a perfect length for a short story. It had a solid plot, including an ending to raise the hairs on your arms. Well done sir, well done.

From the time we are young, we fear the monster under the bed or in the closet, making it impossible to sleep without a nightlight. Then, we hear stories of Bigfoot, and maybe even the Mothman around campfires. When we are adults, we wonder if there might actually be supernatural creatures lurking in the shadows. Are these tall tales and urban legends only metaphors for what horrific things humanity is capable of-or do monsters exist? Go to some terrifying places with this cast of authors. You will be dragged into mystifying realities where demonic fairies hide, where devil monkeys lure carnival-goers to their demise, where Goatmen seek to destroy their prey, and where the goddess of death puts out a hit on victims of her choice. These shocking tales will have you biting your nails and locating that childhood nightlight. Because, in the end, we all know monsters do exist.

Monsters Exist #DTMonsters

 

Behind a veil of secrecy, lost in a barrage of fake news, and buried deep under layers of ignorance is a simple truth that only the truly skeptical understand: monsters exist.

Many refuse to accept this fact, but once woke, it is undeniable that creatures do indeed live amongst us. I could say that these cryptid creatures are kept from the populous by some globalist illuminati, but that’s a cop-out. The truth is, non-believers are either willfully ignorant or overly skeptical.

Those that are willfully ignorant would rather live their life distracted by Kim Kardashian’s ass, Dave Chappell,  Beyonce, and beer without ever wanting to worry about the possibility of monsters. For them, I don’t hold any ill feelings. I understand the bliss of ignorance. If I could purge the red pill from my system, I would.

For those that are overly skeptical, I’m in possession of evidence that offer definitive proof as to the origin and activity of certain cryptid freaks such as Bigfoot, Lake Monster, Goat Man, and Chupacabra.

I am working diligently with a select team of trusted professionals and will produce the evidence. If all goes well, the personal accounts and evidence will be available in July 2017.
