Enjoyed, but sfx can be a little extra

Enjoyable story, well performed and recorded. My biggest complaint is that the gory sound effects and screams are a little overdone (maybe just too loud) and kind of pulled me out of the story. But overall worth a listen!

it's a no from me dawg

obviously this is a podcast that is aiming to be over the top, which is good goal, and it definitely does that. But there's good over the top horror and then there's listening to people be torn/sawed/skinned apart over and over again for episodes on end. yikes. what is the point? it's not scary it's just nasty. if the goal here was a grossout, congrats. im grossed out. whatever, maybe some of you like listening to the screams of people being brutally tortured twenty minutes at a time for no real reason. the death gurgles are well recorded, very wet, very gurgley.

i did enjoy some of it. i thought the dumb songs were fun, i liked some of the characters who then perished almost immediately. some episodes were genuinely good and spooky, but out of the whole catalogue i found them few and far between. i kept listening because i thought maybe something worthwhile would materialize? and my sister recommended it to me and i wanted to be able to chat about it with her. but the third season totally loses the thread. it devolves into predictable plots full of a lot of crunching, splurching, screaming and crying. mostly screaming and crying. RIVETING. i can power through it no longer

Less Espionage and Watermelon, More Horror

The first episode had me interested, the idea of an almost Lovecraftian science fiction horror podcast is thrilling. Using *not really spoilers* disembodied heads to see the deceased individuals last moments is straight out that specific genre, and I find it rather interesting. Using a binaural microphone of decent quality to help sell the immersion is a nice touch...

However, season two rolls around, and it turns out *actual spoilers* this is about two rival corporations having leaders who grew up together, and hate one another. Boring. Heard that story before. Then, instead of it being about mind control and the psyche, we stumble into the wonderful world of cannibalism. From there we work for an intelligence organization and the comments is made “considering who our president is, you think this is weird?”, in reference to the real world president of the USA and a cannibal being a state senator running a shadow business to farm humans for slaughter into vegan “implausible meat” to be served across the country. I came here to avoid political ideologies. If I wanted to hear jokes at Donald Trump’s expense, I’d listen to Kimmel. Plus...I’m pretty sure the Carlisle family lived across the street from Bill and Hillary when they were visiting Epstein’s private island twenty years ago.

Also, the gore effects sound like people hitting and biting into melons more than anything else. Unsettling.
