Night Of The Crabs by Guy N. Smith
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The title says it all, this book is about killer crabs, and no not that kind of crabs. Unlike other killer crab books these crabs are the size of cows. Night of the Crabs starts out just like the more well known and loved Jaws. While night swimming a couple of oversexed young adults get torn to shreds by the villainous crustaceans. That's pretty much where the similarities stop. The crabs are not only large but they are extremely intelligent. I know, I know this seems like the coolest B-movie monster fest book ever, but alas it is not. Sure it had awesome claw killings and dismemberment but not enough for a book about giant killer crabs. The ending seemed rushed and was filled with deus ex machinas. I dunno, I guess my expectations were too high. I had hoped for an unrated crab gorefest but instead got a soft R.
