You know that feeling when an author just has a massively high standard right from the off? Ah you do, excellent…you will bear with me while I go off on a tangent about the sheer quality of writing and scare tactics employed from Mark Cassell. I will need to read more of his work sharpish to gauge just how high his bar of excellence stretches to.

Whilst reading Monster Double Feature I got an insight into just how far Cassell is willing to go. The research and passion for his stories is obvious

A monstrous duet of death and debauchery.

Thoroughly enjoyed this double feature of creatures, if I have to have a favourite it would be the River of Nine Tails.

Well written, classic creature features. Entertainment that any horror aficionado worth their salt will enjoy sinking their teeth into.

This is great short read. The author leads you through the layers of fear. Two stories shows us curious and adventurous people who did not expect what will happen. It doesn't matter is this a journey in Vietnam or dark web, creepy creatures will give an unpleasant surprise. Read in one sitting. ...more

This Monster Double Feature (obviously) contains two creature-feature short stories and both were equally good. River of Nine Tails is an atmospheric tale set in Vietnam in which a British traveller meets a legendary creature. Cassell's writing is a delight to read, really building up the tension right through to the shocking climax. Reanimation Channel is a disturbingly original story, tense, ferocious, and engaging. Overall Monster Double Feature is a great quick read. ...more

On August 16th, Mark Cassell is set to release a chapbook, a collection-ette, if you will, featuring two previously published stories. One of Mark’s other books, The Shadow Fabric, is sitting on my shelf waiting for my attention, but in the meantime, I’m diving into a new-to-me author in my favorite way - stories.

Monster Double Feature kicks off with Mark’s contribution to last year’s Corpus Press’ In Darkness, Delight: Creatures Of the Night anthology. The story is called River of Nine Tails an

4.5 stars for Monster Double Feature definitely slimy!

I personally love old scary films, even in black and white. Guess that dates me! Cheap and body are the best ones. These two stories would work perfectly in that venue. Unfortunately, my imagination adds too much red for background color and makes the details too lifelike. These two stories are imaginative and totally creepy. Enjoy!!

River of Nine Tails –

A man named Elliot is taking an off-the-grid journey to try and deal with a personal issue. He needs to get away from everything, and everyone, for a while and this part of his journey has taken him to Vietnam. More specifically; a boat trip on the Mekong Delta. Also aboard the boat is an American traveller called Brandon, and their Vietnamese guide.

You know that point in water-based horror movies where our protagonists have been attacked and their vessel is slowly sinking i
