I Can’t Wait For More!

Chad Ellis is an exciting new storyteller whose take on thrillers and horror will be a game changer. I loved the teaser and can’t wait for episode 1! -KM

Slog of a tease with no payoff

No idea why anybody would make it through the whole first(?) season of this then recommend it to anybody else. It starts off with a series of shorts that tell nothing and establish nothing, then the sounds of a brutal murder/devouring of a pilot. Then the protagonist is introduced to his new living quarters and other characters that promptly leave, and what follows is drawn out meandering monologue after monologue. Near the end the narrartor spends 40 minutes with no music or sound other than his voice telling how he met and then broke up with his only girlfriend, and although that is actually a pretty emotional and well told story it adds nothing because there is nothing for it to be added to. Listening to Matt go insane from isolation is one of the most mind-numbingly boring experiences I have ever had. I knew exactly how he felt sitting alone in my car driving with nothing but his inane rambling keeping me company. I only finished this because I hoped it would deliver on what was setup at the start but no, the ending was just as pointless and a waste of time as everything that came before it. Matt’s droll speech may have been worth sitting through if it all had built up to something, ANYTHING but this season went out on a lame whimper after dragging itself for a few hours. There is even a bonus episode that is just audio of the voice actor (I think) rock climbing. WHY IS THAT WORTH LISTENING TO?! Who is this podcast for? I hate it. I only gave t three stars because the sound design is decent and the love story that is told to us actually resonated with me, but I wished I could have dove out into the arctic winter to put myself out of my misery by episode 5.

Edit: After some digging I have discovered my assessment that episode 9 is in fact not the end of the first season, just the most recent episode by September 5th. That helps a little bit but I am still lowering my rating to two stars after digesting what I have heard further. The majority of the series so far has been so uninteresting that I have no interest in what could come next. This is uploaded every two weeks, and I hope that is due to the creator being busy with other projects because so much of this is just one person speaking into a microphone without any other sound or music, what is there to edit or produce? And I am also frustrated by the other reviews that have this at 5 stars currently, many based on the trailer or the first two episodes alone. Had me coming into this with much higher hopes, but apparently my fellow listeners can’t be relied on for honest opinions.

Atmospheric and Chilling

This show is all about atmosphere--the oppressive weight of isolation in an empty place, far removed from civilization. This is the kind of horror where "nothing happens" in the best possible way, feeding an ever-mounting dread that turns the protagonist into the architect of his own terror. There is more to come, of course, but the waiting is an exhillerating torment.
