Wonderfully done horror!

I’ve listened twice all the way through. If you love eldritch horror, this is for you. If you hate jumpscare horror, this is for you. If you like to feel weirded out by your own surroundings every once in a while, this is also for you. Occasionally gory, so use the content warnings as your guide. Also be warned that the transition sound is quite a bit louder than the rest of the podcast.

Engrossing!

I can’t think of a way to accurately describe what this podcast is about or the feelings it elicits. I wasn’t prepared. I’m a horror fanatic but I had recently gotten bored with my usual horror content. It started to feel like everything was just a ripoff, a lazily executed ripoff, of all the story’s I’ve seen or heard previously. This is so different. It’s brilliant, engrossing, melancholic, and one of the best podcasts I’ve stumbled across. It’s so unusual yet niche that it can’t possibly be for everyone. But for those it is for, it’s a rare gem. Even by episode 12, I was still questioning whether I ‘got it’ or not. I’m still questioning if I’ve interpreted everything right. The thing that bothers me is a weird effect between ‘scenes’. It’s a whoooooosh that’s alot louder than the VA. It becomes very excessive in some episodes. If the writing were any less stellar I would’ve probably ditched it simply for that ‘whooooosh’. Oh and the pronunciation of the name ‘Jacoby’. He said ‘juh-KOE-be’ at first, then suddenly switched it up to ‘JAC-a-be’. That was pretty obnoxious, but those are literally the only two complaints I can come up with and they’re pretty trivial.

Very well written!

I love the writing and the general mood, and the voice acting is incredibly well done. However, the editing I think could use some work. I’m only 6 episodes in but the weird breaks of silence where the VA and background sounds arent stitched close enough together, and the sound affect they use that sounds like a passing car is very distracting.
