Chilling, engaging, and excellently written. As a lover of horror (and a massive fan of John Carpenter's The Thing), this was such a thrilling and enjoyable show. The quality of voice acting, sound design, and the 'found footage' style really bring this show to life. I cannot recommend this series highly enough.
An intruiging story that has a slow build and plenty of twists and turns. The dialog is a little clunky at times, and the acting a bit uneven (the latter probably due to having the actors recording their parts at different times all over the globe) Soundscapes were great if wearing headphones at home, but if driving in a car parts with wind noise were nearly impossible to make out. One thing that really irked me was that the actor whose narration ties the stories together didn't know how to pronounce the word 'archeological' or 'calving' (which she had to say on every episode of season 3 & 4) -more intriguing was that no-one in the production crew picked her up on it, and asked for another take. This actor was also probably weakest of the cast -the one who sounded most like someone reeading lines from a script. I felt Diane Casanova gave the best performance for her Dr Moreno, with Peter Lewis's Graham Casner having by far the best horror podcast voice
First season was really good, not such a fan of the second season - didn't like the characters as much
Good stories - all seem related but not sure how.
every season is good!!!
I fell off because the story wasn't for me, but while I listened it was really enjoyable!
Really hard to follow some passages for me cause English is not my native language (sometimes because of really heavy accents, others because of all the sounds overlapping), but it's an intriguing story.
It's a promising setup, but the storytelling is too slow and unemotional. I couldn't connect to the characters. The monologues were cheesy and on the nose. When the action/horror began (which is quite late) I wasn't immsersed into the story. Not hating on it, I just think the exection could have been much better. No goosebumps for me.
The quality of sounds apes alone would give them at least 4 stars; adding stellar voice acting and attention to research, I'd give them a 6 if I could.
Great quality and interesting story. I'm looking forward to the truth behind the mystery of the white vault story
SO GOOD. really need more horror like this in my life
signed up to patreon the second i finished season 3 and it was the most worthwhile purchase ive ever made. best horror podcast i've heard yet, 10/10 will be scared to go to sleep forever now
I have absolutely love this podcast since finding it. It did take a couple times to get through the first episode but I'm so glad I did. I have a bad habit of not giving shows a chance but the first season is definitely a build up to the action packed second and the third is filled with both. The fourth is starting off really strong. As soon as I can afford to join the patreon I'm definitely doing it to get all the extras. Great job to the writers and creators. Thank you so much for the effort put forth. I generally don't get all fanboy on reviews but you guys deserve it! To potential listeners please give it a chance. The found footage way of presenting this great mystery/horror story is top notch as well as the great sound and great acting.
The way this story unfolds from one season to the next is wonderful. The found footage construction of the story works well as you get bits and pieces of what has transpired which lends to the sinking sense of dread. Absolutely incredible sound design which lends to an immersive listening experience.
Done so well. Immersive and professionally executed. A great blend of different accents keep you clearly informed in the often disorienting medium of audio fiction. Uses different framing devices (diary entries, conversations) to avoid boring the audience with audiobook-style monologue. And, of course, the claustrophobic effect of being trapped in a mysterious snowstorm setting is a great way to get under the listener's skin! One of the best independent audio drama shows around
Audio horror hell YES! This is the perfect show for when you're in the mood to curl up on the couch and just get spooked af. The sound design is so evocative of the mood of the show and truly puts you on edge before anything truly spooky even begins to happen--many people ascribe to the belief that horror works even better in an audio format because what’s in your imagination is scarier than most things filmmakers could show you, and this show is the perfect argument for audio drama being the new frontier for found-footage horror. There’s also an amazing, diverse, multicultural cast that immediately delineate who their characters are so we can get our bearings as soon as possible and settle in (as much as possible when you’re battling feelings of dread from pretty much jump.) LOVE IT!
The White VaultWe're so glad to hear it and look forward to scaring you in season 4!
I respect this podcast and understand why people love it, but this is a rating for my taste and I just couldn't get into it. Production is high, voice acting is on point. To me, it just seemed a bit boring, especially at the beginning.
The White VaultIf it helps to know - Season 1 is the setup and Season 2 is the action. If you stopped before episode 10, you may want to consider giving it a second chance. It's also entirely possibly that slow bur…
Love the international cast, many languages and gorgeous sound design. Brilliant and beautiful podcast, the best kind of horror fiction I've listened to in a long time.
Very engaging story and characters. Great sound design and skillful voice actors. Well done!
I enjoyed this podcast. I wished sometimes that more exciting stuff would happen earlier in the story, but it was good overall.
