    Overall

    Like all story collections, this boasts some good stories, and some dire stories. For the most part, the narration is fairly professional, though the into music is intrusive, distracting, pointless, sets a meaningless tone that often doesn't connect to the story at all and goes on far too long, even overwhelming the narration in some stories - at least in the beginning, and is REALLY annoying. I will never understand why producers of such work can't let the work speak for itself and feel the need to B movie it up with a lot of unnecessary music/sound effects. Though , to be fair, it is just incredibly annoying intor music, not sound effects or music in the stories themselves.

    THere are some really great stories here, and some I felt, as forced listening, would be appropriate punishment if I were in prison and they needed to extract some deep secret.

    Worth a credit for a few stories and to explore what is out there, but like all story mixes it is mixed.
