Izzi Marie ,

Fav episode: Why I take the lift

Well written horror show, with great voice acting. Got more excited about the show after Episode 9 Season 1!

Sidesplitting Hatchet Thrower ,

Creepy in the best way

This podcast is sooooo good. The different authors lend variation to the episodes, the music and production is top notch. It is not super scary but has just enough to be creeped out and excited at the same time.

Captain Obligvious ,

Creepy with a heart.

Love the horror story and disturbing ambience. A true short form gem.
