Publisher's Summary

The Narrow Caves is the first Audiostate™ ever released, a new product combining the grandiosity of Hollywood films with the intimacy of audio to create an "ear-movie" experience. Adapted from a script by award-winning novelist, screenwriter, and director S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk, Wraiths of the Broken Land), The Narrow Caves features voice acting by Vincent D'Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, Daredevil), Will Patton (Armageddon, Falling Skies), Lili Simmons (Bone Tomahawk, Banshee) and Wyatt Russell (Everybody Wants Some, Black Mirror). Binary Reptile provides an eerie score that contributes to the cinematic feel of this haunting piece.

Synopsis:

In Florida, 1983, two college students meet at a yard party and do not hit it off. Walter and Ruby have no reason to reprise this antagonistic encounter, but something strange and almost primordial burgeons within each of them. Their thoughts and dreams turn toward each other, and in very little time they find themselves in an intense and unique relationship. What lies at the bottom of their strange connection is unearthed when Walter joins Ruby on a holiday trip to her home in upstate New York, where a living darkness inhabits the woodlands that surround her family's mansion. This engrossing and unpredictable blend of mystery, horror, and romance subverts the idea of "fated love" while exploring strange compulsions, intense desires, and ancient mysteries that are best left buried deep in the earth.

    "A True Ear Movie Experience in Horror"
    Where does The Narrow Caves rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a truly unique experience. Given the cast, the production effects, the brilliant story, and the score, this feels more cinematic than the audiobooks I've heard. It's meant to. And the production, it's GREAT! "A movie for your mind" sounds cliche, but it's true -- you'll walk away with the feeling that you've "seen" this movie, and you have... in your imagination.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I'm in love with the horror of what lurks in the caves... I can't give away too much, but it's absolutely terrifying. Otherwise, the main characters ALL deliver top-notch performances.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with this cinematic "ear movie" experience and I'll definitely be tuning in to what other productions will be made. If you're in the mood for a genuinely creepy film for your imagination, THE NARROW CAVES delivers.

    "Well-Produced, Creepy, and Extremely Enjoyable!"

    I absolutely loved Wyatt Russell in "Everybody Wants Some!!", so I was intrigued and excited to hear that he was starring in a new audio narrative concept. The Narrow Caves did not disappoint! Wyatt Russell and Lili Simmons’ romance is an engaging through-line for a tale that is, at its core, a very creepy mystery that is fun to try and unravel as it unfolds. There are even some laugh-out-loud moments peppered in this multi-generational horror that surprised and delighted me as I listened.

    It’s important to note that this isn’t just an “audiobook” - "The Narrow Caves" is a fully-fleshed out audio movie! Talented actors bring each role to life, there is extensive sound design, and an original score by the author and composer S. Craig Zahler. Plus, at around 3 hours, it’s a length that hovers between your typical 1-hr podcast and tens of hours-long audiobook and is great for a quick road trip or weekend getaway listen.

    Overall, super impressive and enjoyable. Can’t wait for the next one!

    Looking for the next best horror, ghost, paranormal, apocalyptic book out there. Especially if it has a full cast.

    "Reminiscant of a cheesy skin flick"

    Maybe it's just me. Maybe I'm the only one who was thoroughly disappointed in what I was truly hoping would be the "next best thing." Full cast productions are my favorite type of audiobooks. I jump on the new ones as soon as I get the chance and wish there were more...especially in the paranormal or horror genre. Combine that with narration by Will Patton and I would've bet a million dollars that this would've been my favorite listen of the year. And although I'm not a D'Onofrio fan, the mere fact that several high profile actors were involved should have been an ace in the hole. Especially when it's promoted as a hauntingly cinematic "ear-movie" experience that blends mystery, horror and romance. Not so much on the mystery and the horror, and definitely more raunchy then romance in my perspective. Will Patton, as usual, did an above average job, especially with such an unusual point-of-view style of narration. My major gripe is with how the voice acting of the primary characters fell flat. The supposed chemistry between the two protagonists was lost in their non-ability to perform (instead of read) the "script".

    But like I said, maybe it's just me. I was hoping for a truly horrifying "audio-movie" experience. This was not it. This was like watching USA's "Up all Night" hosted by Rhonda Shear. Except not as good. And at less than three hours, definitely not worth an entire month's credit.
