Exceptional performances

Fangoria is well known in horror, so I couldn’t help but give this a try. Dreadtime Stories is a dramatized series of multiple short stories developed as a radio program format that was originally a podcast. It was very well performed and a genius idea as a podcast. I throughly enjoyed Malcom McDowell’s introductions. This installment was very entertaining due to the dramatization and sound effects. The stories themselves, while original, are fairly average, good but not great. I never listened to the podcast, but wish I would’ve. It seems like a brilliant idea that should’ve been popular, so I don’t know why they are no longer active. I’ve never gotten on the podcast bandwagon, probably missing out on a lot.

DON'T BE SHEEPEPLE

AND RIPS HIM STRAIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE
Six stories at a good price. Production quality is par excellent. The stories are often predictable, but are still fun. While I did not care so much for the first and last story, none of these stories are bad. The four in the middle are good to really good.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!

Truck driving is way more fun with a good audio book, and this collection of radio drama style stories were just great. Every story kept my interest! I found myself miles down the road from where I started, and it felt like the time just flew by! Great narrator in Mr. Malcolm, and great acting and voice talent throughout the compilation! I whole heartily recommend this, and Fangoria's Volume I Dreadtime Stories as well. Enjoy your work, enjoy your life, give them a listen!

It was OK

Slightly entertaining but predictable, especially the first story. I like short stories and these were OK but I would be returning them if I had paid a credit or more for them. They were nothing special nor anything I'd listen to again but for a one time listen...they were...OK.

I wonder

If I am going to be a horror writer if this is what it takes. Seriously bad stories and nothing to notice /think about or even scary.

Good old creep fest!

Okay so these Fangoria Dreadtime Stories are really growing on me! This is the second collection in the series and I loved them! The stories aren't long, and some of them aren't really scary, but they are classic eerie stories that will definitely put you in the mood for Halloween! This is a collection of short spooky stories dramatized and read by the voices of multiple voice actors and hosted and narrated by Malcolm McDowell, who has one of the best creepy voices for these stories in my humble opinion. If you always like Tales From The Crypt you should check out the Fangoria's Dreadtime Stories and make sure to watch it on a gloomy day or stormy night to really set the mood!

Not bad

Like most short story collections, you have good and bad. The last story about the Vietnam vet.... just save yourself the time and skip that one

Good not great

Enjoyed the stories but many of the protagonist, specifically the male protagonist, are written using the same archetype. Self depreciating defeatist who speak constantly on their failings and are defined by the lifelong rut they are in. I found these characters very hard to like and while the stories often redeemed their poor characters the stories are weakened because of this.
