Creepy goodness. There's a slow build in, somewhat episodic to start with, and then a not so slow descent into barely surviving, always terrified, how in the world do you get out of this...
One of relatively few podcasts that had a clear vision from the start of where it wanted to go, and got there - despite a lot of challenges on the way! A true classic of the horror podcast genre, and a great addition to the very British tradition of scary stories (M.R. James would be proud).
Kept me captivated for all 200 episodes. Got me in the feelings, too.
Truly one of the best, sad it’s over. Well worth a listen.
The first few seasons are great, my enjoyment dropped with Season 5 and sadly had to stop listening. I also felt the romance was sudden and forced.
Perfect audio fiction!
The Magnus Archives was my emotional support podcast for 2020, and I'm still dealing with the fallout from the finale. I don't know what I could say about TMA that hasn't already said, but I fell in love with these characters and enjoyed following the plots as they intensified from season to season.
Great production value. I love that there are small stories with a larger overarching store backbone. Creepy, funny and mysterious.
An initially vignette based podcast that expands to have a beautifully written narrative arc across the seasons and which has a hugely satisfying conclusion.
I binged all the episodes in a relatively short space of time. This is truly a work of writing and production genius. Although I enjoyed the dialogue between the characters a bit more than monologue stories, I still found them compelling as well, especially since they all gradually piece together, like a puzzle. The acting is great too. Parts of the story were particularly moving - especially when describing one of the fears - the Lonely. Made me cry. I hope they return with follow-up episode of sorts.
Creepy, yet surprising beautiful and sweet podcast about the death, loss, fear and love. Character and world building is really well done.
I love this podcast so much! I thought it was just going to be a horror anthology at first, but then when it started showing signs of containing a developing plot I got super excited! I listen to this podcast while I work the night shift, it's definitely scary and sometimes my co-workers make me jump when I run into them while working. This keeps you on your feet and wanting to work fast! I love this podcast, thank you so much for creating it <3.
Excellent storytelling and I'll be sad when it ends in just a few weeks. Thankfully we can always go back and listen again!
I love this take on podcasts and story telling. It makes me feel like I'm somehow transported back in time to when radio stations used to have a weekly story for listeners to tune in to. Definitely pulls you in
The voice acting is terrible. Completely unlistenable.
Truely wonderful listening experience. The writing is interesting, gripping and creative. The voice acting is so good it puts you in a trance.
The best horror podcast. Love it so much. I'm scared that one day it will end and we'll have none left 💖
I have to admit that after the first episode, I thought this wasn't for me. But I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. The stories got better and the way they started to connect to each other made the series better and better! The larger narrative really builds well over time.
Absolutely must be listened to with headphones. The bone crunching, worm crawling, and every word of denial that slips past Jon's lips just won't make your spine shrivel quite so well without it. Eerie at times, creepy, fun, tragic, and just super neat. Horror fans of all kinds that like to dissect their fears will love it.
I'm usually not one for horror, yet I adore this podcast! Amazing show!
