This shoesrting radio program is fantastic. I reccommned it to every one who loves radio programs and horror stories. Even my 6 year old grandson loved it. The stories will keep you on the edges of you seat.
I highly recommend these stories. Not NY Times Best Seller material. Take it for what it is, not what it's not and these stories and performances are a lot of fun. I thoroughly enjoyed them, they did a great job of capturing the atmosphere of old radio shows. A couple of the stories stood out as good.
I just bought volume 2.
These are performances with different actors playing each role.
Yes, I got quite caught up in it.
The performances were the best, for me. What I liked least was some of the endings.
Performances were a GREAT delivery, the production and effects were well done, as well, but the writing itself somewhat lacked in the "scary" department. In some cases, if it wasn't for the background sound/music and overall atmospheric tone, the stories wouldn't have seemed scary to me, and they weren't entirely original horror, either. Some stories I just didn't know what to make of, I sorta scratched my head and said "huh". However, I will definitely not let the story writing stop me from trying out another of their productions, as I really did enjoy the performances and this production is only their first volume.
The stories that really stood out to me were the first story, "The Thing on the Ice" and the eighth story, "The Bats", not saying they were great, but they stood out. There's a mix of ghost stories and other supernatural elements in the stories themselves, and some were just okay, but I thought all had pretty good audio performances, just could have benefited from tighter or more original writing. Overall, nice radio theater for cold nights happening now in January. So yeah, this was pretty okay. On Goodreads "okay" is measured by two stars, but I rated this one three stars because of the quality performances. For four bucks, I would say this is worth a listen. The stories would probably be really creepy for much younger audiences.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this audiobook at first - but I quite enjoyed it! There are a number of scary stories, most of which are enjoyable. Only a few of the stories had so-so narration, the rest were good. The subject matter of the stories varies quite a bit, so I'm sure there's something in here for everyone. Recommended!
