Sunday Suspense: They Watch

They Watch by Mary Crellin is a collection of three short stories with some rather unexpected horror twists. The first one, Watching, has a Tales of the Crypt  sense to it...I could almost hear the Crypt Keeper cackling at the beginning. The Push could pass for a Twilight Zone episode. However, the Hag Phenomenon is quite original, and the ending caught me completely off-guard.

In other words, Crellin uses the elements of classic horror to give the readers something frightening without being overly brutal or revolting. I love finding these modern stories that would make Alfred Hitchcock proud. The third story alone is worth picking up a copy of this anthology.

As always,
