Our Editor's Take

Ghost stories can send chills down the spine, especially when they're true. Each episode of I Hear Fear features a true tale of horror to please morbid curiosity. Academy Award-nominated actress Carey Mulligan hosts this production.

Amazon released this anthology series as a Halloween special. The six I Hear Fear podcast episodes recount terrifying stories based on true events. The unique storytelling style will appeal to true crime and horror podcast fans looking for thrills. Instead of one person narrating a story, each episode is like an audio drama. Actors portray each character within the story. The result is a stirring and immersive listening experience.

Mulligan began her career in theater in 2004. She broke into film with the 2005 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Since then, she has amassed an impressive list of credits in TV shows and films. Mulligan has performed acclaimed roles in films like Promising Young Woman. With I Hear Fear, she offers listeners a glimpse into real terror. Adding "podcast host" to her accolades, she makes an excellent host on this show.

I Hear Fear uses immersive sound design to stunning effect. The skillful voice acting and sounds draw listeners into the story. Lovers of horror movies and anthologies like The Twilight Zone may not want to miss this horror podcast. The masterful sound bed creates a powerful atmosphere around each episode.

This podcast may be a great choice for anyone looking for an audio experience to creep them out. Mulligan's evocative narration sets the tone for every episode. The mix of internal monologues and dialogue may captivate listeners. Despite being a Halloween special, I Hear Fear is a good horror podcast year-round. From killers to the paranormal, this show may entertain horror fans.
