3.5 stars!
What does it say about humans that we are utter trash for creature features?? It's like the human race secretly wants to be destroyed by animals. ANIMALS RISE UP AND KICK OUR ASSES!!
Night of 1,000 Beasts is my introduction to John Palisano's work but it won't be my last. I very much enjoyed the way he tells a story-a unique blend of fantasy and horror that kept the pages flying.
I felt like I was watching a movie set on the slopes in Colorado--which for me personally, would be like a fi

Night of 1,000 Beasts is my first foray into John Palisano's work and it definitely won't be my last. This is a straight up beast (pun intended) of a book, that would fit fantastically into a copy of Heavy Metal Magazine. Part creature feature, part gore-fest, part fantasy work, this book checked off all of the boxes I want in this type of a book.

The plot is simple enough: A group of friends on a ski trip decide to do one last run before calling it a day. On the trip down an avalanche occur

A fun, lightning-paced bloodbath on a mountain in Colorado.

This was a really enjoyable romp of wild horror. Some friends go skiing in Colorado, and after an avalanche, they start seeing different sorts of animals which seem to be hybrids with humans. And they're big and mean and have sharp teeth and claws as well.

The monsters are varied and the action literally never stops throughout, not letting you breathe. This book relies on its premise more than it does its characters to compel the reader,

One of the elements that works well in this novel is the alternating viewpoints. It keeps us guessing, while at the same time keeping the story fresh.

What starts off as a group of friends on a ski trip quickly takes a dicey turn. Two make it back to the lodge, while three are still MIA somewhere on the mountain. Palisano uses all the characters to take a look at the beastly cult lurking in the wilderness. We learn these human/animal beings take a strong dislike to visiting vacationers—and on th

Review originally posted at Ginger Nuts of Horror:

“I still think she could do better than some lumber sexual vegan nut job!”

If you haven’t figured out that John Palisano has a wicked sense of black humor by the time you hit this line, which comes fairly early on in his new novel, Night of 1,000 Beasts, well, don’t worry, there’ll be dozens more opportunities for you to catch up. I read Palisano’s Ghost Heart a few years back, and became an immediate fan t

In Night of 1,000 Beasts, by Bram Stoker winner John Palisano, a superstorm hits an isolated Colorado ski resort, sending an avalanche down into the valley where five long-time friends have come to spend the weekend. Of course, as the title suggests, the weather is the least of their worries in this storm of a story where there are more monsters than snow flurries. And Palisano is a writer who knows how to write a monster, cataloguing entire orders of creatures, all with murderous tendencies. Th ...more

For me this is more a 3.5 then a 3! Story was good, it was scary, weird and horrifying. The ideas that the hybrids killed the humans in similar ways that we kill animals was distributing! Ex:boiling the man like we do lobsters! Some dialogue seemed a bit childish to me. And there are errors throughout: using Brian’s name when it was Kyle and other grammatical errors! It’s a pet peeve of mine, seems sloppy!

John Palisano's Night of 1,000 Beasts read like a possessed roller coaster--it doesn't want to let you off--and the more you try and bale (only because of the horror of things)--- that's when the whiplash begins, there is never a dull moment and you can never take your eyes off the page.

This book grabs you by the throat with the intent, not to choke you, but to open your startled eyes to such an amazing story, what John Palisano has done will astonish you ( the reader)--one of the best voices o

One evening when I was only a small boy, my father allowed me to stay up late with him and watch NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD on television. He fell asleep, but I waited for the end. I couldn’t believe they’d let the lead guy die after all that. I was horrified. Later that summer we went to the drive-in, which was a big deal in Norwalk, Connecticut in the 1970s. Everyone went. We all piled into the Bo ...more
