Somewhere out in the woods an otherworldly creature born of fire and hate lurks. When the beast emerges, lusting for blood, all that stands between it and the nearby town is a grief-stricken farmer. Supernatural ferocity meets backwoods ingenuity in a horror fable of good versus evil.

The Legend of Kill Creek Woods is the story about a simple man, one who we never learn his name, who breeds dogs. Has a family. Lives, one might say, a very content life. Until, that is, everything is torn apart. His wife and son are killed, then his best friend or possession, depending on how you look at it, his prized bitch.
Left with the last litter of puppies. The man is obsessed with finding who or what killed his beloved family. Then one night the killer finds him. Thus begins a short cat and mouse game, each switching roles from time to time. Until only the victor remains.
This was reminiscent of the ghost stories that my parents told me while sitting around the campfire when I was a kid. Them trying to scare the pants off of me so I would have a restless night sleeping alone in my tent. Jumping at every little sound I would hear.
Quite an entertaining listen that ended in a way that I didn’t think would happen, and in a way that I loved. Worth the lmost two hours of listening time to be creeped out for most of it.
Joe Hempel did a decent job with this performance. Adding in a slight southern accent that made it seem even more real. At time I didn’t agree with his pacing changes. He more than made up for this with the intensity of which he read. Bringing the terror that the man was going through to life. Hempel has a voice that one might not associate with the term narrator. As he sounds like a normal everyman. This only adds to the wonder that is created telling the authors folk lore.
