What an awesome collection of stories! These are not your average tales. These are the horrors behind everything including demons, vampires, witches, children, movie theaters, and so many more!

There are 22 in this which is great but listening on audio to this many stories is tough. I was on a plane for the most part so I didn’t have the ability to take notes. So many stick out though! None for good reasons. These are all horrifyingly terrifying!

What I love about short stories, and particularly scary stories, is that you are not able to figure out what is going on before it happens. And a LOT of weird stuff happens in this. For the most part I was able to guess that most of these were not going to end well but not because I knew, but because they are so horrible! It is like when you’re watching a great 80’s slasher flick and you just can’t look away because it is so bloody and gruesome but perfect.

The audio was a little strange. The production was good but there are only two narrators. While they did a wonderful job hearing the same voices over and over for each story muddles the stories a little. I would get a particular character stuck in my head and realize that character was long gone! Other than that they did a fantastic job and the production was wonderful but I would have loved to hear this with a full production.

Absolutely wonderful bite sized horror. Will be loved by horror fans!
