    Horror Highlights (Halloween Special)

    Horror Highlights (Halloween Special)

    Now that the nights are longer, we find ourselves at the time of year when we’re most willing to give into our fears and visit the darkest places of our imagination. PlayME's special Horror Highlights episode features some of the most haunting shows we've featured on our podcast. We have a Pandora's box full of horrors and thrillers that we wanted to resurrect in time for Halloween — because listening to scary stories makes us feel a little less alone with our fears. (Warning: this episode contains strong language and graphic imagery.)

Amazing realism

WOW! While listening to a Japanese folk tale, I actually felt as if I was in the play. The sound effects were great. Love the Quarantine themed plays.

Totally bingeable!

Loving this podcast. Great to catch up on plays I’ve missed in Toronto and across Canada. And great bonus in-depth interviews. Thanks PlayMe!

Mike Stamford ,

Engages your imagination.

This is first-rate audio drama from some heavy-hitting writers: poetic, comic, bleak, sexy, or challenging, these scripts all bring a unique vision of the world as well as attracting talented performers. The production elements are also expertly done: music, sound effects.... you feel like you're in the room.
