Talk about building excitement in a horror story: we have a storied tale about a building that appears to have a life of its own. That’s the inescapable conclusion of one poor delivery driver who serves this ominous edifice as part of his otherwise-normal route.
“Intruder” unveils the truth behind the driver’s towering fear; it’s our first feature tonight as we bring you this second episode from Folxlore. Folxlore is a queer horror series from Scotland that’s beautifully free of queer-phobia tropes; the terror arises naturally and organically in audio drama from Tin Can Audio and In the Works — a group with strong roots in live theater and performance poetry. It’s a unique sound we first discovered in Midnight Audio Theatre’s episode 376, and we just had to hear more.
Also waiting for you: another series we just had to hear more from — Death by Dying. That’s a series framed by a small town’s obituary writer who’s not content to just write teary listings for the back of the newspaper, but investigates the more mysterious deaths that come across his desk.
We’ll hear Death by Dying‘s second installment, “Lillian Died,” wherein the books of her modest estate are every bit as intriguing in her death as her surviving niece. Get ready for a treat; Death by Dying received 17 Audioverse award nominations!
It’s all heavy and horror-able stuff, so we’ll end with a brief comic tale from the storytelling stalwarts at It’s All Been Done Presents. It’s based on the famously dark fairy tale about that breadcrumb-littering brother and sister who try to eat a witch out of her candy-coated house and home.
Enjoy…if you dare!
