Spinechillers Vol. 3 - Doug Bradley's Classic Horror Audio Book
Date: July 2009
Duration: 3 hours 5 minutes
Welcome to Volume Three of what is on the way to becoming the world's largest collection of quality, classic horror audiobooks.
This volume starts with the famous M.R. James' story of occult revenge, 'Casting the Runes', about a slighted occultist out for murderous revenge and using his diabolical black arts to achieve it. It was adapted into the equally chilling movie 'Night of the Demon' in 1957.
Next up is another famous classic, WW Jacobs' 'The Monkeys Paw', a brilliantly written tale of greed and getting what you wish for.
The third story is 'Hop-Frog' by Edgar Allan Poe; a classic yarn about the grisly revenge conjured by a mistreated court jester.
Poe is followed by another master of story telling, Robert Louis Stevenson, with his tale of grave robbers and medical students, 'The Body Snatcher', inspired by real events.
Rounding off Volume Three is one of the most well known poems from Mr Poe, 'The Raven'. It's beautifully written and concerns a raven's visit to a heartbroken lover as he appears to descend into madness. Doug Bradley's reading showcases Poe's work with care and panache.
Alistair Lock has again complemented each story with his music and sound design. We hope you enjoy listening to these classic stories.
