“Midnight Movie Creature Feature” is a pretty excellent cross-section of monster-themed stories courtesy of May December Publications. Most stories range from B-movie camp to full-out gore, but there’s something for everyone here. Small press edit errors aside, this is a pretty well-packaged and thick volume of varied tales of schlock and suspense.Stand-outs for me:1) DK Mok’s “Keeping it Together”: Funny and poignant tale of a zombie pizza boy.
2) Aaron Dries’ “And the Dark Growls Back”: Genuinely excellent character study, peppered with true gore and suspense.
3) Kelly Kombrinck’s “The Vistor”: Another good fusion of well-developed characters, realistic narrative and eerie chills.
4) Chantal Boudreau’s “The Lure”: Brutally, beautifully simple and somber Man v. Fish tale.
5) Tom Ribas’ “The Spine-Tingling Tale of the Crystal Golem”: It takes a few pages to realize that this is deftly-delivered camp and not just the work of a madman.
6) Bennie Newsome’s “Frightening Cliches”: Amusing and creepy meta monster moshpit.
7) Joseph A. Polega’s “Hayride”: Did not see that gruesome little twist coming whatsoever.
8) Craig Wallwork’s “Revenge of the Zombie Pussy Eaters”: Great use of pithy wordplay and some sickening gore leads to a surprisingly touching close.
I can go on… M.W. Williamson and MJ Wesolowski’s contributions were also top notch. Basically, wherever you fall on the Taste Spectrum, you’re coming away with a new favorite short story when you’re done with this anthology.
