Episode Eight of Pines Lakes (Who’s Afraid Podcast)
4 out of 5 stars
If you’re unfamiliar with serialized fiction – it’s the idea that you take a story and separate it out into episodes – like a TV show. These are usually released on a website or as a podcast. I’ll be reviewing each episode separately as they come out to provide an episode by episode review of the story. Check out my review of Episode One and Episode Two, Episode Three, Episode Four, Episode Five, Episode Six, Episode Seven
Some of my reviews may contain spoilers to past episodes – I’ll try and keep that to a minimum but I can’t guarantee anything.
Well, thanks to Apple Podcasts for playing these in backward order – I ended up listening to episode eight before seven – but I went back and listened to seven right after.
We’re reintroduced to the old lady (and she’s given a name) in this episode – and she ends up playing a major part. I don’t really trust her but unfortunately for the group – they don’t really have much choice. There was some supernatural stuff going on in this one – but less than some of the other episodes.
The townspeople are as awful as ever and they come up with some pretty funny ways to show how unhappy they are. (one of the funniest lines and then replies was in this episode).
Overall, one of those “this is definitely leading to something” episodes and I can’t wait to figure out where it goes!
Pine Lakes Episode Eight by Christopher Motz
Narrator: Joe Hempel
Length: 45 mins
Series: Pine Lakes #8
Published by Serial Audio Genres: Horror
Ted and Susan Merchant have been coming to the Pine Lakes Resort for nearly twenty years. In that time, their annual getaway has become a tradition, a peaceful week nestled in the picturesque mountains of northern Pennsylvania. For them, it isn’t just a simple vacation spot, but a magical destination where time slows and they become one with nature’s magnificence.
When a freak summer storm forces Ted to lose control of their car and plummet off the road, they’re relieved just to have survived, but relief quickly turns to dread as they find out all too soon they’re not alone.
Strange lights in the forest, whispered warnings, the insurmountable threat of unseen forces lurking in the shadows; nothing could have prepared them for the horrors that lie ahead.
Escaping the wreck is just the beginning.
Is their love enough to save them, or will they become the latest victims on the road to Pine Lakes?Also by this author: Pine Lakes: Episode One, Pine Lakes Episode Two, Pine Lakes Episode 3, Pine Lakes Episode Four
