Reviews of Palimpsest

Gothic, atmospheric, psychological anthology fiction fans, this one is 100% gonna be for you. The story is very much a slow burn tale of Anneliese being haunted by the memories of the house, but also bringing her own haunting to the house. Horror stories like this need to be threaded so carefully--they have to keep that slow simmer at just the right level to feel like it could bubble over at any moment, and they have to know when to let it loose. Palimpsest knows what its doing, and rest assured you’re in good hands--trust these fantastic creators. As mentioned, its an anthology series, with a different setting and protagonist each season (season two is set in the 19th century, season three during the Blitz in London), with a common thread connecting them all, so choose what appeals to you!
I loved the first two seasons of this, and can't wait to start the third. The stories are imaginative, well-researched, and brilliantly plotted - and the delivery is sensitive and engaging. Also love that haunting music, and the effective minimal way it's used to dramatically heighten parts of the story.
I listened to the entirety of the first season in one sitting as it gripped me right from the start. The subtle use of score coupled with the fabulous narrative makes the story truly come alive. If you want to feel that shudder down your spine that only the best horror can give, then definitely check this podcast out.
I thought this show was just okay at first, but it has grown on me. The first season was pretty decent. While I didn't care for the ramblings about Claire, the rest of the plot was just weird and interesting enough to keep me listening. Season 2 was a much more compelling story. There was a lot more action and suspense compared to the quiet horror of the first season. This is the show at its best, in my opinion. Season 3 is off to a good start, but I'm not liking it as much as season 2 so far. I'm hoping it will wow me in later episodes.
Like a ghost (no pun intended...), this podcast stays with you. Hauntingly beautiful.
Not crazy exciting, slow burn, but interesting enough. Liked season 1 better than 2. Really wanted a psychological thriller, but it's not that at all.
An interesting and dark series of stories, I really do enjoy.
Compelling ghost story.
Palimpsest is a show that stays with you for a long while after listening. It's a very quiet, calm, subtle ghost story that doesn't quite hit you until a few episodes in and you realise you're completely hooked on the story. And then you reach Season 2... Palimpsest is one of the most intriguing audio dramas I've heard, I can't recommend it enough.
Try out this show if you like creepy stories, haunted houses, ghosts and dealing with a difficult past.
Literally just found this one out yesterday. I'm already up to date with it and need MORE.
