Good Scary Stories!

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!

A Prairie Horror Companion

If the Coen Brothers made a spook anthology I could see it having the same feel as this audio book. Some of the stories were genuinely creepy and rather smart. I have listened to a lot of audio horror narration and drama, and stories like "the thing on the ice" have a timelessness to them, almost a creepypasta feel, without having to painstakingly describe what it's like to be eviscerated or recreate the sound of a head being caved in. The first story especially works to generate a feeling of isolation and paranoia distinct to the upper mid-west, with a stinging revelation of exactly what it is that you would not want to see (yet still look for) out your window into the cold, dark storm. The stories are also smart and have real themes and emotions attached to their characters and plots. That said, stories like "Wolf House" and "The Dunes" are a little hokey, and the acting varies from solid to melodramatic to flat, but this is basically public radio spook theater, so I found all of it at least fun. I really liked "The Thing on the Ice", "The Diary", "The Wendigo" (though the audio croaked on that one a bit), "catnip", and oddly enough, "The Bats". I say odd because the premise seems 1950's SciFi, but the story itself melts into some old-school weird fiction.

A lot of fun!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

Would you be willing to try another book from Icebox Radio Theater? Why or why not?

I just bought volume 2.

Did the narrator do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

These are performances with different actors playing each role.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I got quite caught up in it.

Overall nice radio theater for cold nights

What did you like best about Frozen Frights, Volume 1? What did you like least?

The performances were the best, for me. What I liked least was some of the endings.

Would you ever listen to anything by Icebox Radio Theater again?

Yes, definitely.

Any additional comments?

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.<br/>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.
