Ghost Dance

While writing my review of Special Order, I had sought out other Lovecraftian audio dramas by Atlanta Radio Theatre Company. I thought I had come across one when I read the description for Ghost Dance, whose description noted a dance that is “…out of history. And out of time.” I immediately pictured what the story …

Frankenstein

Oh I'm not evil, I'm just...good...looking?

We all know the basic story of how one Victor Frankenstein created a monstrous being. Even those who have never seen a Frankenstein movie can easily summarize the story. However, many who go back and read the original novel by Mary Shelley are shocked at what they find. Contrary to what pop culture says, there …

More Fear For Your Ears

As the original Fear For Your Ears was such a rousing success, I’ve decided to once again dip into my collection of free audio drama/audio book links in order to share with you: Those of you who enjoyed my article on Neil Gaiman’s “A Study In Emerald” should be very interested in the free audio …

The Slide

I guess this answers my question about whether or not zombies poop...

Strange things are happening in the small English town of Redlow. After being hit by a major earthquake (despite such things being very rare in the UK), large cracks have been opening all over the area. Greenish mud starts oozing out of these cracks, animals start dying off and many people are isolating themselves in …

Appointment With Fear

Fans of old time horror radio all know that Suspense is considered as one of “top dogs” of horror radio dramas. What they might not know is how the show has a British counterpart. When I say “counterpart,” I’m not referring to a show with similar stories and popularity; I’m referring to an official adaptation! …

Vincent Price Presents: Volume 1

Vincent Price sold separately...

Although some might argue that the Vincentennial ended on May 27th (Vincent Price’s birthday), but we here at Gravedigger’s Local 16 disagree. After all, the US Bicentennial celebration lasted long after the anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Since our celebration started with a review of a Price-related radio drama series, why …

The Price of Fear

It's worth every penny!

Today marks what would have been Vincent Price’s 100th birthday had he not unfortunately shed this mortal coil. In recognition of this momentous occasion, the horror community (and his hometown of St. Louis) is celebrating the “Vincentennial” in a variety of ways. I have chosen to celebrate by reviewing his classic British radio series, The …

A Handful of Dirt: Michelle of Go Kat Go! Radio

  A Handful of Dirt asks a person five questions they wouldn’t normally expect or receive in any other credible interview. In consulting the Serendipiter Bag o’InquiryTM, we pose a series of questions to come up with a bit of knowledge unknown before – a handful of dirt.   We will let the subject of …

Benediction (of sorts)

Here at GdL16, we are thoroughly against bootlegging, specifically the bootlegging that some companies do when they make reproductions of movies without getting the proper legal right to do so. But, with that said, I just downloaded an mp3 of a “Weird” Al Yankovic demo that was clearly recorded from an episode of the Dr. …

The Shadow Over Innsmouth

Move over SUSPENSE and LIGHTS OUT!

You might remember the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society from my “Printable Halloween Décor” article or for their 2005 silent film, The Call of Cthulhu. Just as that “Mythoscope” film was designed to look like a 1920’s silent film (as the original story was written/published then), their Dark Adventure Radio Theatre CD series seeks to adapt …
