Publisher's Write-Up

Many believe that a werewolf becomes such a beast by the full moon and takes human form again once the night has ended. But the oldest legends tell us that once you turn you are always the beast that lies within the darkest reassesses of your soul, for after it is let free it can never be controlled again. For a film crew investigating one such legend this night will provide them with the proof they didn't expect and a fight for their survival they didn't want and may not win. There is a beast in all of us. Can yours be controlled?

Camera 4 is the tale of a US film crew on the Welsh moors investigating some strange goings on the locals are reticent to discuss; fans of the TV series Supernatural will even recognise the program format that the main protagonists in this story work on. Having arrived in Wales they ignore the traditional warning not to go out on the moors and set up camp for a few days to see if they can prove, or equally disprove, the legend. They have brought with them state of the art equipment including several remote cameras, one being the Camera 4 of the title. So ensues a night of terror when the proof they sought is unequivocally provided.

Unfortunately there is nothing really new in Martyn Ellington’s latest novella and while Camera 4 is a decent story nothing stands out about it to justify buying it on its own; it would, however, sit rather nicely in an anthology or as part of a werewolf short story collection. Having said that the novella is enjoyable and I found the tension built nicely throughout with a satisfactory although predicable ending. Perhaps recommended as an eBook read if you are a particular aficionado of the werewolf story.
