    S4. Case 10: Arthur’s House

    S4. Case 10: Arthur’s House

    When Danny gets a call from his old friend Sarah describing a terrifying experience she had at her cousin Kerrie’s house, it leads him to Montecito, California, a beautiful coastal enclave, home to celebrities such as Oprah and Harry and Meghan. Kerrie grew up living opposite cantankerous old neighbour Arthur, and when he dies, Kerrie buys the cottage. It’s everything you could want from a home, except for one thing - Arthur is seemingly still there, and he doesn’t like Kerrie living in his house. Can Kerrie make peace with him?

    S4. Case 5: The Mystery of Willow Creek

    S4. Case 5: The Mystery of Willow Creek

    Alaskan huntsman Fred and his cousin and uncle are trapped in a cabin in the Alaskan wilderness, seemingly surrounded by terrifying creatures, resembling the local folk stories about Bigfoot or “the Hairy Man”. Can they escape with their lives?
    Also, Danny ventures to Humboldt County, site of some of America’s most famous alleged Bigfoot sightings, to talk to resident Native Americans about their ancient beliefs in these creatures and their own experiences. Is this a great American myth or could there really be a secret, undetected species living in the USA?

U.K. - good - USA - Less so

The U.K. stories have genuinely terrified me as they are so well-told and nuanced - it’s a shame the American stories are told with such hyperbole and a lack of depth that they feel like they belong on a different show. I hope they go back to English ghost stories; far more compelling.
* wooOOOooooOOO cue spooky noises

Make this podcast great again !

Love this podcast but like all the other reviews agree that it has lost it’s identity since moving to the USA .

The Best - but no more US please!

Hands down the best podcast, I cannot get enough of it. Have listened to seasons 1 &2 over and over. US stories are really not good though, I am not in the least bit scared by them, sorry but they feel like ghost adventures with Zak Bagans? - also the sound effects? Texting and emoji sounds and weird sound effects? Please no.
