Spinechillers Vol. 2 - Doug Bradley's Classic Horror Audio Books
Date: April 2009
Duration: 2 hours 38 minutes
Doug Bradley's Spinechillers, Volume Two, presents four classic stories from the masters of horror literature.
It kicks off with Charles Dickens' friend and collaborator Wilkie Collins' eerie tale of a man's dream of his own murder that comes too true 'The Dream Woman'. Second on the bill is the master of American literature Edgar Allan Poe's classic story of doomed love 'The Oval Portrait'.
Making his first appearance in the Spinechillers series is Arthur Conan Doyle. Widely known for creating Sherlock Holmes, Conan Doyle was also the author of a number of horror stories that introduced new ideas to the genre. Volume Two includes his story 'The Ring of Thoth', a tale of Egyptian mummies, immortality, and deadly rivalry spanning four millennia.
What better way to round off this volume than with the classic HP Lovecraft short story 'The Tomb'. The story works well as a companion piece to Volume One's 'The Outsider', and concerns a mans desperate quest to find a place in the dark tomb of his ancestors.
As with Volume One, Alistair Lock's evocative sound design, score and additional sound effects, used sparingly, add an atmospheric texture to the stories.
This volume was recorded at the audio workshop London and engineered by Joseph Degnan. Produced by Alexander Finbow.
