Bloody good
The Magnus Archives—in true, intelligent horror form—is restrained, intriguing, and haunting, which each story just as well-executed and open-ended as the last. In the age of jumpscares and poorly-conceived creepypasta, Rusty Quill channels the spirit of a Lovecraft mythos and an Orson Welles' radio drama in an atmospheric, ever lore-expanding series of chilling "statements" made by those who have experienced less than natural occurrences. My only gripe with The Magnus Archives is also a compliment of one of it's strengths. That is, as the listing suggests, it is a literature podcast, through and through, putting the (quite quality) writing first. Atmospheric, low-fi voice playback and tape recorder whirring aside, that's all their is to it—just good writing. Perhaps it would change the form too much, but I wish the production would break into a more theatrical approach (much like the trailer for the series) and explore the possibilities of the sonic medium. That being said, for any fan of horror or good storytelling in general—episodic AND anthological—The Magnus Archives is a must. So subscribe, grab a coat and a pair of headphones, and go for a long walk by streetlamp in the dead of night. I dare you.Read full review »

I love this podcast. The narrative style is very good and the stories are creepy and the readers are very talented voice actors. Creative and creepy, I look forward to this one. When a new one comes down, don't ask me for anything because I'm listening to this!Read full review »
