We Have Always Lived in the Castle
by Shirley Jackson
Narrated by Bernadette Dunne
In This Episode...
1962. A time when horror novels didn't push "jump scares," gore, and cheesy psychological tropes down your throats. Instead, the twists came in more of a slow burn fashion and established a menacing revelation during it's climax that would leave you breathless. Today, we travel through the wickedly creepy mind of Shirley Jackson via her most admired horror novel, We Have Always Lived in the Castle. What makes this episode so creep-tastic is that Britney and Brad recorded it while sitting in the dark, in front of a row of sinister battery operated candles, and hearing disturbing noises coming from the floors and walls that surrounded them. Will this classic literary story be scary enough to give Britney and Brad shelving nightmares? Or should we bury this audiobook for good and shove it forever?
