This might be the best episode of DART!

I love this episode! It's epic and horrifying, at times heartbreaking and at all times amazing. The flashbacks are so well done. The actors make the family relationship of the Ward's so believable which pays off so well at the end. The music in this episode is so spot on for enhancing the scenes and the sound effects are chilling. DART just keeps getting better.

Another Macabre Tale

Sinister and frightening.

I listened to the Case of Charles Dexter Ward at night. That was a mistake. It was one of the more frightening stories, especially toward the end of the tale, while it was reaching its climax.

It wasn't overwhelmingly unexpected in any sense, but it was still a worthwhile read.

I definitely recommend this story, and the HP Lovecraft historical society have again made a great performance.
