The Night It Got Out by Patrick James Ryan

The Night It Got Out - Patrick James Ryan



The Night It Got Out was a fun creature feature!


The story is fairly standard as far as these types of stories go. This one has a military slant and I liked that portion of the story the most. I liked the imagination of the author as to how the creature was created and implemented. (That's as much as I can say without spoilers.)


Once the creature does get out, (as you might suspect from the title), lots of gory action ensues. These sections were fun, but got rather tiresome after a while. Lots of killing is pretty standard for these types of tales, but there was no real connection for me to most of the characters in this book, so I wasn't pulling for them and I really couldn't care less.


I thought the end of the story was well done, but The Night It Got Out didn't add anything new to creature features or the horror genre, in general, and for that reason I gave it 3 stars.


It was fun and fast paced, with a good ending so your mileage may vary.
