by Shaun Hutson
Leisure Books 1984

This is more like it.

Experimental animal feed mutates animals in a small English town, turning them into killers.  Likewise to the townspeople that eat the meat.  A farmer and American reporter try to dig up the truth, while the evil chemical plant owner, who for some reason commands the British military, try to contain and cover up the incident.

The book is strongest at the beginning, with regular animal attacks leading up to human atrocities.  It suffers when it tries to have a plot, provide scientific explanations, and draws way too much from I Am Legend and its derivatives.

It's Shaun Hutson.  A quick, fun gorefest.

  1. One of my favorite covers. Dude looks like Ray Liotta! Haven't read it though. SLUGS was pretty dumb fun.
