Pretty standard

Not a bad collection of short stories but nothing particularly outstanding. The narrator was pretty irritating with a "I'm going to try to change my tone so it sounds scarier" kind of voice. Only 3 stars though I'm afraid (partly because I wasn't!)

Thoroughly enjoyed!

So here we have a deliciously dark selection of horror stories, brought to you by some talented authors! The summary here says it best..."A young woman’s night-time escapade goes eerily wrong. A man is forced to relive the horrible accident that tore his family apart over and over again. An underground thrill through ancient catacombs proves disastrously horrific. A young boy is haunted by the scarecrow in the fields behind his home. And a woman is revisited by the ghost of a psychotic killer in the most dreadful of ways."

I'm really impressed with some of these stories. Often times with short stories, I feel like something is missing, but here most of the stories felt complete. I think my favourite was Scarecrow, where a young boy and his sister are abused by their drunken father. The father acquires a scarecrow to watch over the corn fields but the scarecrow keeps moving. Who is moving it and why? This one was equal parts heartbreaking as it was incredibly scary!! I've always been afraid of scarecrows, they are just so so creepy, so this one really frightened me.

As in any collection, there are some stories better than others, but all of them are entertaining and worth the read! I've found some new authors to check out!! I'd highly recommend you check out this book, and as I write this review, the kindle edition is free, so grab it and be in for an awesome ride!!

Matt Gilcheck read the stories really well. He did a great job bringing the atmosphere of each story to life.

*I received this for free but voluntarily reviewed it. This in no way way affected nor influenced my thoughts.*

Great Horror Short Stories<br />

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook in my car on my way to work. I enjoyed the narration and am looking forward to listening to the other volumes.

Great stories, hard to get used to a new narrator.

The stories were great! I love horror, especially paranormal horror! It took me forever to get used to Tom Bowers, and then they changed it up on me. The one problem that I would have is, if these were ever offered as one part for all four books, it would make it difficult because there is more than one narrator. It would also work if there was a different narrator for each story, but three of the books have Tom Bowers, and the fourth has a different narrator.

Some syllables are cut. Slightly immersion breaking. Otherwise great. Great collection for passing the hours by

Creepy stories

Oh, my goodness, these stories were great. Some were sad and creepy, some were just creepy enough to linger in my mind for hours. I can not wait to read more stories from these writers.

Not much horror in this

If you expect to get scared reading this book, never fear. There is no scariness here, just ridiculous stories.

Surreal vs unimpressed

in a nutshell,a few great short stories,but many more half or weak shorts.They ranged from "Tales From the Crypt" level to "that creepy guy who works at WalMart"

Where's the Horror?

I really wanted to enjoy this. I love Horror Anthologies. But it's so hard to find a good one. Only about 2 stories were decent. The last one was the worst.

Meh

A handful of the stories were really good, but most were boring and predictable. The last one was incredibly long-winded as well as blah. The ones thgthgat aren't interesting rely on gross or horrible things happening. The interesting ones have good concepts and nice twists.

The book itself I would give 3 stars but the narrator was awful. Pausing all the time like the original Captain Kirk, stressing parts of the sentence that didn't need to be stressed, etc. It was really annoying. I hate saying bad thingfs about Scarestreet but there it is. :(
