My first listen from Camp Fire Radio was a wonderful treat. Great story, acting, and a tale that made me wince in fear and disgust—but in a good way. What I found most fascinating was the hypnosis scene. The way it combined the “blind” medium of audio with John Doe closing his eyes and remembering the past was ingenious. I felt like I was John, as scary as that thought might be given the ending.
What makes the tale scary isn’t the gruesome sound effects—even though they are extremely visceral. It’s the fact that it’s based on actual history. Well, more like conspiracy type history. You can find more about the Philadelphia Experiment on its wikipedia page.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this tale. Short and sweet, but packed with tons history, horror, and imagination.
