Location:

Sweden

Description:

These tales of supernatural suspense by Soren Narnia adhere to the most primal element of storytelling: a single human voice describing events exactly as it experienced them. The stories, stripped of even proper titles, spill forward as taut, uninterrupted confessions. Knifepoint Horror leaves nothing but the story's riveting spine to compel and chill you to the core.

These 10 stories were produced as videos for YouTube over the past year as a slight change of pace--here they are, if you haven't heard them yet, in audio-only format as a convenience to those (like me, actually) who prefer to do without the creaky visuals. Some have been partially re-recorded. Music by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com), licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License, http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/.

Here's a horror tale told through a different format. In a mysterious, undefined era, a desperate foot journey traverses a winter wilderness that promises a lonely death--perhaps a natural one, but likely not.

The next time you take a long country drive, look to your left and right as the scenery rolls by, the forgotten places where no footsteps tread for weeks, months, maybe years at a time. How long would it be before anyone noticed that such a place had become shelter for something unspeakable? The fully updated (and allegedly final) version of the paperback Knifepoint Horror compendium is on Amazon if you'd like a text archive. Download a free full PDF version at...

In the space of minutes, a travel writer venturing alone in remote waters goes from a state of enviable tranquility to blinding terror. P.S. Fans of zombie stories--non-traditional ones, that is--might be interested in an audio novella of mine called Song of the Living Dead over at http://thosesnowynights.libsyn.com/.

Somewhere near your house it stands, one of those decaying places that people always whisper about as they pass by. For every day you age, it seems to age three. But it may well live beyond you, silently daring you each night at dusk to enter, coldly confident you'll always be too afraid.

There exists in this life a very real, horrifying phenomenon that science cannot yet extinguish. It strikes a surprising number of people, and none of us are safe. And if it comes for you, it will come at the most vulnerable moment you will ever know. When I was younger, I loved adapting stories I’d read into radio plays or short films or long monologues, but the results just grew old in a drawer, because there was always the spectre that these projects were based on someone else’s...

It seemed like such a simple deal, but it felt wrong from the very beginning--and led to a glimpse of a horror which, for those with even a little experience peering into the shadows, need not be named.

A comfortable suburban existence begins to fracture with a single sound. You may have heard it sometime yourself, but those who have surely possess no need for stories like these to haunt them. Artist Jessica Mellen created this eerie bit of business with this episode in mind.

A tale made specifically for the campfire--a simple tale of the woods, long-buried secrets, and letting chances to escape terror slip agonizingly away. When I was younger, I loved adapting stories I’d read into radio plays or short films or long monologues, but the results just grew old in a drawer, because there was always the spectre that these projects were based on someone else’s original work and there would certainly be much ceasing and desisting and legal threats. These days...

Some places are so remote that just to explore them is an invitation to the phantoms that know we're alone.

Something a little shy of Knifepoint Horror, but perhaps entertaining in their own way, here are three stories that don't quite fit into the mold of those previously offered. ..... Many people have been thoroughly creeped out by the show's avatar--what IS that thing looking at us? Well, we finally have an answer, provided by 11-year-old Ethien Duckett. His story below is entitled "Ratbat." Talk about economy of storytelling! One cold rainy night I saw a rat I picked it up with no idea what...
