So far, I’ve reviewed 10 volumes in the Doug Bradley’s Spinechillers series. All of them have been highly enjoyable in their own way. Today, I’m going to take a look at Doug Bradley’s Spinechillers Volume 11. Clocking in at two hours and fifty-one minutes, this is yet another short and sweet collection of classic horror literature lovingly presented in a way that is a feast for the ears.
As you’ve probably read by now, I’m writing a book — two, in fact! This means I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like to, but I still make time for a little here and there. One of those books is Doug Bradley’s Spinechillers Volume 10, another terrifyingly terrific entry in this horror audiobook series from Renegade Arts Entertainment.
Mad Dog: The Maurice Vachon Story is an interesting audiobook but I didn’t find it to be compelling. Rather than having me on the edge of my seat the entire time, it was merely something I listened to in the background while doing chores around the house. The sign of a great audiobook is the need to keep listening, regardless of what I’m doing. With this audiobook, I didn’t mind stopping at any point because it never felt like I was going to miss out on anything important. This isn’t a knock on Maurice. He sounds like he was an influential and important figure in professional wrestling. The way this book is written, it doesn’t live up to his legend, which is unfortunate. The narrator does a fine job and has a pleasant voice, and this made for an easy listening experience. Overall, Mad Dog: The Maurice Vachon Story is only worth checking out if you’re a diehard fan of this era of wrestling or Mad Dog specifically. For everyone else, this audiobook is just OK.
Volume 9 of Doug Bradley’s Spinechillers is another tantalizing selection of classic horror literature for audiophiles to enjoy. And, once again, Jeffrey Combs, best known for his role in Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator, is back as a guest narrator.
In need of an audiobook to listen to? Fire up Doug Bradley’s Spinechillers Volume 8! Like Volume 6, this entry features guest narrators. Robert Englund, best known as Freddy Krueger, is back, and Jeffrey Combs, from Re-Animator, lends his unmistakable voice to this collection.
One Fearful Yellow Eye, which is a strange title for a book, is about extortion. To be more specific, it’s about extorting $600,000 from a dying man. The victim of this extortion is the husband of Travis McGee’s ex-girlfriend. Set in Chicago, this mystery is a nice change of pace for the series.
The Junkyard Dog (JYD) is one of those wrestlers from the 1980s who I’m familiar with because he was part of the Rock ‘N’ Wrestling era, but not to a great degree. I was excited to check out The King of New Orleans, an Audible Original, for a couple reasons. First, I attended WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans — my first and only WrestleMania, so far — and it was a blast. And, second, because, in these racially charged times, now seemed like the perfect opportunity to learn about one of the most successful modern-day black wrestlers.
Halloween is 11 days from now and you might be finding yourself in need of a horror fix. I’ve got you covered! Doug Bradley’s Spinechillers Volume 6 may be the best entry yet in this series of audiobooks celebrating classic horror literature.
Halloween season is upon us, and I’m back with my latest review in Doug Bradley’s Spinechillers series. This time, I’m reviewing Volume 5. So, what can you expect from Doug Bradley’s Spinechillers Volume 5? In a word, greatness.
