Listen at night for full effect!

There is something about listening to horror stories at night that make them a bit more effective. I chose this one as a story to listen to before bed, and I believe it made it that much better. The stories are not very realistic, but something about the description and narration in the dark drew my attention in and haunted me until I fell asleep!

This was pretty fun😀

Pretty good. I like short horror stories(and scifi stories)a lot. There are a few different spooky tales along with the main story. Good horror is cheesy a lot of the time-this was a little bit of spooky with a bit of comedy & horror chessieness thrown in the mix.. I enjoyed it. The narrator was good. He has a nice voice.. His narration didn't get in the way of the stories like some narrators tend to do. All in all as my header says-It was fun. Listen to this one at night with the lights out for funner effect.

I loved all the short stories within, as Joel deals with his own scary story ... or not;)

Love it!

Great stories intertwined around a great concept! Wish it was longer though. Voice actor nailed the feel of the story. Can’t wait to hear it again. About to see what else I can find from these two.

Not to bad.

It’s a nice horror story not unlike Stephen King. I would definitely recommend it to any King fans.. Great narration, and an all together good listen.
