A blur of western and horror that had me on edge.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Phantom Canyon is honestly one finest horror masterpieces I've had the pleasure of experiencing. The story flows perfectly into the format of an audio drama, allowing your imagination to create the perfect mixture of fascination and apprehension. Geoffrey Thorne, Jeffrey Bridges and Susan Bridges come together to weave a story of love, loss, danger and suspense, that has never been seen in Horror or Western before.
After the local mine collapses, Blacksmith Sam (Pete Milan) returns home to Crooked Creek, Colorado at the behest of his childhood sweetheart, Rebecca (Darian Lindle). The town has become overrun with an affliction, turning warm, friendly folk into cruel, cold monsters. With Rebecca's blind daughter Clara (Barbra Dillon) and Sam's fool apprentice Edwin (Phil Dawson) in tow, they set out to find a way out of the Phantom Canyon.
The actors truly bring their best to the words, sounding as if they've stepped out of 19th century Colorado. For not recording in the same space, they have an amazing chemistry between them; Lindle and Dillon even sound like an actual mother and daughter. As their characters go through the gauntlet of emotions, they rise to the challenge.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Clara, played by Barbara Dillon, is someone who could have easily been a weak, pathetic character. Instead she's capable, intuitive and while she occasionally feels afraid, she still acts in spite of that fear.
What does Full Cast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The actors, sound effects, and music all work together to evoke emotions from you as you listen to it. Several times I found myself actually caring about the character, and worrying about what they were experiencing.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I wound up listening to it in one sitting, I honestly wanted to find out what happened next.
Any additional comments?
My favorite line: "God's cold hand done touched them all."

This story pulls every punch. Well produced audio drama, but the characters were rather weak, the logic questionable, and the scares mild. Recommend for breaking in kids new to the horror genre on a road trip.
