boggart
noun

A mischievous character from English folklore, boggarts attach themselves to a person or location. Though they can occasionally be considered merely impish or even helpful, boggarts are more often characterised as malevolent and hostile.

Sour Hall’s resident boggart is destructive and torments George and Ash by exacerbating the sources of their pain, drawing out past traumas and current fears.

Can’t wait for more!

This is great! As someone who doesn’t usually enjoy horror it’s a testament to the writing and acting that I can’t wait for more episodes. Growing up in rural Montana, I can appreciate the folklore and supernatural elements of an old family farm. Please keep George and Ash safe! I love them and can’t wait to hear where their story goes.

The best parts or radio in a new form

This was excellent. It really reminds me of the old radio dramas, which were sadly replaced by Top 40 on the FM and screaming hellfire on the AM radio channels.

This was atmospheric, traditional, and yet creative and new. I love the Yorkshire accents, the sounds of the storms, and the animals. Love the chilling moments, and the mystery.

This was beautifully performed and presented.

Sounds effect and performance : I am chill in'

Honestly, I am a bit nervous when I started listening to "Sour Hall". The screaming and suspense sound effect really chilled to the bone. Must listen...Honestly, I really love audio drama and I wouldn't miss this one.

Propaganda Clothed in a Supernatural Saga

If the author focused more on the story than the two main characters, listening to this series would have been more enjoyable.

could have been so much better..

Story begins with high drama...with no understanding. the narrators did good performance, the story had no line of direction. on "reason" or substance. More development of the story line was needed to balance the dramatis.
