Quickly, the investigation grows out of their control, as they discover that, not only are the legends seemingly true, many people in Blackwood have turned up dead or disappeared without a trace. Worse, there may be a reason why no one has ever uncovered the truth before. Someone is watching them, willing to do whatever it takes to keep the secret. Their recordings have finally been released.

Kiwis alas ,

Fun and doesn’t outstay it’s welcome.

Blackwood is faux documentary/found footage mystery. It’s sound production is very good, and the voice actors do a great job. It’s a well delivered, and short but well paced story. It’s well worth the listen if you enjoy this genre.

More potential than plot

It’s a bit messy - starts off with a decent premise, but the plot hops all over the place, the characters become hysterical and aggressive at random times (and for annoyingly extended periods), loopholes abound, and things shift too rapidly.

Wound up disliking the three main characters.

Get the feeling this started on a great idea but the writer(s) lost energy halfway through the creation process. As a result, it’s a bit of a noisy mess that still manages to hold it together, but barely.

If there winds up being a second season I probably won’t be around to hear it.
