11th Hour Audio

English, Performing arts, 1 season, 108 episodes, 1 day, 16 hours, 7 minutes
Sometime back in September 2015 we decided we wanted to produce a quick horror audio drama, just for fun. In Intensive Care fashion, we asked some of the fellow audio drama producers living in the Northeast if they wanted to be a part of some Audio Drama Day mayhem. The response was a resounding “Hell Yes!”, and 11th Hour Audio Productions was born. Each October, we will feature new stories created by Audio Drama teams from all over the world to tingle your spine and shiver your soul.

11th Hour Audio Creature Feature of the Month - Human Error

Before we get to the show we wanted all of our listeners to know that 11th Hour Audio is producing the pilot episode for a new series called Brimstone Gap. Written by Philip Craig Robotham, Brimstone Gap is a dark tale set in the Old West. In the American West of the 1880s, there is one stop along the Transcontinental railroad that is rarely visited. Those who step off the train are almost never seen again, and its reputation is dark and crowded with supernatural secrets. The town is a psychic whirlpool drawing dark and broken souls alike into its grip. If you would like to help us bring this series to your ears, Join Us on Patreon.  April is the month of resurrections. The Queen of the Underworld has emerged bringing an end to the bitterly barren winter. Cybele’s consort Attis becomes a symbol of fertility after castrating himself under a pine tree, and a martyred carpenter rises from his tomb promising eternal life. Springtime myths and stories are imbued with the concept of resurrection. But here in Horror Land the ultimate symbol of resurrection is the zombie. Few other creatures lurking in our nightmares carry the idea of life, death, rebirth, and fertility quite as well as the modern zombie. With that in mind we’ve unearthed a story from Ali Hylton called Human Error. Human Error takes a deep look at the zombie apocalypse and asks the question “What does it mean to be a monster?” Human Error is an immersive audio drama about survival, found family, and finding hope within ourselves during dark and dangerous times when the world we know ends, and a new one is born. Human Error comes to us from some of the creators who produced City of Statues for the 11th Hour Audio Challenge 2022. Do you get a thrill out of Creature Feature of the Month?

11th Hour Creature Feature of the Month - Jesus Gets Rejected

February brings us Valentine’s Day, a holiday associated with love. The feast of St. Valentine was founded by Pope Gelasius I in 496 in honor of the martyred priest who performed weddings for Christian couples.

This month, in celebration of celestial affection, we bring you Jesus Gets Rejected. A short drama that reminds us that the heart wants what it wants, no matter the reason. Vanessa (Christianne Greiert) is tempted by Satan (Mike Racioppa) and won’t accept Jesus (Cayenne Chris Conroy) into her heart. May contain objectionable material.

11th Hour Creature Feature of the Month - A Season of Changes

January is the sacred month of Janus, the Roman God of all beginnings, endings, thresholds and time. He presides over the start of each new year and symbolizes the duality of change. Depicted with two faces Janus sees deep into the past and future, he resides in the passages between young and old, war and peace, and birth and death. This January we bring you a story written by Gareth Brownbill and directed/produced by Peter Beeston of Cornucopia Radio. A Season of Changes tells the story of four people whose past misfortunes and future hopes become intertwined through a thin dividing wall and the cries of ghostly lament. James sits alone in his flat dreading the things that lurk outside. Margaret silently considers how much time she has left as a machine rhythmically measures her heartbeat. Kathy slowly worries about what she has lost and Jane tries to come to terms with what she now has to cut away. Peter Beetson and Hanna Lloyd were 2022 11th Hour Audio Challenge participants. Check out their submission Hell Stream - Like, Comment and Kill! here. It is a season of change for all four of them, and that’s when the lightbulb flickers for a brief moment before the filament breaks at its weakest point and everyone is left in darkness. We know it’s only temporary and lightness will soon return… but can we be really sure?

Ichabod Crane’s Journey Through Sleepy Hollow

Greetings, Listeners!  This next story is something a little… different: It began as a piece of artwork. Artist and illustrator Vince Dorse has created a poster that’s laid out in a kind of narrative timeline. To showcase the poster, Vince has crafted a video that details his art process and contains a narrative version of the abridged tale, guiding the viewer through the stunning visuals. So why are we sharing it here? Well, the story is a classic piece of American horror–we’re certain you’ll recognize it. And it’s narrated and sound designed by yours truly, with help from the Uber Duo Horsin’ Around sound effects pack. Check the show notes for links to the video and Vince’s shop in case you’d like a poster for yourself. Now, button up your coats against the chill and journey with us to the quaint little town of Sleepy Hollow Youtube link: Poster shop link:

11th Hour Creature Feature of the Month - The Hidden Truths 2

Welcome to December everyone. In the United States December 11th is National Make a Friend Day and we would like to take a moment to recognize all of the friends we’ve made over the years through the 11th Hour Audio Challenge. The original concept for the 11th Hour Audio Challenge was simple. Get together with some people you’ve never worked with before, create an original horror story and do it in one month. The first show we created like this, Intensive Care, brought two different production teams together. The second, Vultures Over Low Doves, brought two different countries together. People getting together to tell stories pre-dates the written word. Some of the earliest evidence dates back as far as 30,000 years ago. The drawings in the Lascaux and Chavaux caves in France depict visual stories and sympathetic magic in the form of animals, humans and fantastic creatures. Storytelling is part of what makes us human. The practice lives at the intersections of identity and community and thrives on ideas summoned through diversity and struggle. Ideas are the fuel that feeds us, feeds creativity, progress and relationships. Stories are how we share our ideas and fend off the things that lurk beyond the campfire. So in honor of National Make a Friend Day, we invite you to pull up a chair and listen to a story. Because the greatest enemy of community, creativity and ideas is censorship.  Before we get to our story we wanted to let our friends know that we’ve started a Patreon. 11th Hour Audio plans to bring you more shows and not just in October. We’ve been working with our friends, creating scripts, casting roles and budgeting. To learn more and lend your support visit us at  The Hidden Truths 2 comes to us from Tom Rory Parsons. It’s a story about identity, belonging and a frightening misuse of power. Josh continues his Journey through life but encounters a new supernatural threat, it's up to his family and friends to solve the problem once again. We hope you enjoy it. Listen to The Hidden Truths Written by Tom Rory Parsons      You can hear more of Tom's work in:      The Radcliffe Square Labyrinth, Down the Basement, and Gower Hall Shaun Mendum as Josh Sarah Golding as Mary      Sarah also appears in:      Breathless, Monster's Game, and The Parsonage Fiona Thraille as Aunty Francis      Listen to Fiona in:      Upstairs Upstairs, Customs, and Monster's Game Karim Kronfli as Uncle Jim      Catch Karim in:      Ivory Towers, Reminisce With Me, and Fidget Lauren Regan as Jenny Erika Sanderson as Miss Snell      Erika also appears in:      Breathless Shaun Mendum as Jimmy Martin Gallagher as Robert Artwork by Faith McQuinn Music, Editing an sound design by Tom Rory Parsons

11th Hour Creature Feature of the Month - In Ruins

“It was the Terrible Season of the autumn, and the wild people in the mountains were preparing for the frightful ceremonies which only rumour told of in the towns. They were the very old folk who dwelt higher up in the hills and spoke a choppy language which the Vascones could not understand. …every spring and autumn they held the infamous rites on the peaks, their howlings and altar-fires throwing terror into the villages. Always the same—the night before the Kalends of Maius and the night before the Kalends of November. Townsfolk would disappear just before these nights, and would never be heard of again.” - H.P. Lovecraft The Very Old Folk On November 3rd 1927 H.P. Lovecraft sent a letter containing the story The Very Old Folk to Donald Wandrei. The Very Old Folk is a tale that draws its inspiration from the cross-cultural observances of All Souls’ Day, All Saints’ Day and Dia de los Muertos. These days of ceremony and ancestral remembrance are observed during the first days of November. And just as the folk practices of the world gave H.P. Lovecraft the feverish dreams he wrote about, those dreams went on to influence many other writers and podcasters who cautiously dip their pens into the mad Lovecraftian universe. This month the 11th Hour Creature Feature brings you a story from the stormy shores of the island of St. Caillic. In Ruins comes to us from A Scottish Podcast. A Scottish Podcast chronicles the story of Lee, a washed up former radio DJ who launches a paranormal investigation podcast with reluctant help from his friend Dougie. The two travel the length and breadth of Scotland in search of Medieval Demon Kings and Lovecraftian Gods of the Sea.

The City of Statues

There is a city that’s nicknamed “The City of Statues.” In this city there are, unsurprisingly, many statues. But they’re not normal statues, and they’re not placed in a way that makes any sense. They are everywhere you can imagine: in the middle of streets, in the middle of sidewalks, inside buildings and rooms and closets. And oftentimes they look like they are chasing something. In the day and in the light, they’re just statues, but once darkness falls they come to life and hunt any living creature down, infecting you with just a touch. The story follows a group of 5 survivors as they try to escape the city at night, all while trying to avoid the statues and stay alive. Content Warnings: Life threatening situations, loud noises and screams, an infectious illness, gun and gunshots, harsh language, discussion of death, and on screen character death.

11th Hour Creature Feature of the Month - Dead London

OCTOBER A delicious chill has crept into the air, the leaves on the trees are performing their brilliant displays before falling to the ground in aromatic clumps. The pumpkins have taken their places alongside ghosts and witches up and down the streets and breathless shiver of anticipation lurks deep down in our cores.  Around here October is the most hallowed month of the year. While we eagerly await the arrival of Halloween we are busy little 11th Hour Audio Challenge imps. There are stories to write, lines to be recorded, dialog to be edited, sound-effects to be layered and a delightful horde of participating fiends to torture. All of this celebratory torment brings us to World Audio Drama Day on Oct 30th. October 30th is a significant day for the fans and creators of Audio Drama because of it’s connection to The War of the Worlds. On October 30th, 1938, the Mercury Theater on the Air, Orson Welles and John Houseman, broadcast Howard Koch’s adaptation of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds”. In recognition of that media-altering event we have brought a very special adaptation of War of the Worlds to the Creature Feature this month. In 2013 Matthew Boudreau organized the 75th Anniversary War of the Worlds Radio Contest. The judges received ten entries from four different countries and the winner was The Wireless Theatre Company with their submission Dead London. Dead London is an original audio drama based on H.G. Wells’s classic tale of Martian invasion. DEAD LONDON sees humanity defeated by a superior military force from another world. It was recorded on location at Horsell Common, Surrey, and featuring Brian Blessed as the Voice of the Martians.   Dr. Georgina Welles… JOSEPHINE ARDEN Dr. Tom Kane/Survivor 2… TOM SLATTER PC Toland… JACK BOWMAN Dr. Jeff Quinlan/Survivor 1… MATT BLAIR Captain Glover/Dan… MATTHEW HEBDEN Newsreader… MARIELE RUNACRE-TEMPLE Martian Voices… BRIAN BLESSED Written by… JACK BOWMAN and ROBERT VALENTINE Directed by… GEORGE MADDOCKS Recording and Post-Production… MALCOLM THORP Produced by… MARIELE RUNACRE-TEMPLE, JACK BOWMAN and ROBERT VALENTINE

11th Hour Creature Feature of the Month - The White Vault - Scatter

It’s September and there’s a hint of change in the air. Labor Day has come and gone, families on summer vacation have scurried home to tame the children and send them back to school and pumpkin spices are being sprinkled into everything. The Harvest Moon rises on the 10th as the last full moon of summer and September 22nd marks the Autumn Equinox- It’s time to reap what has been sown.  But remember an old bit of Appalachian wisdom that says to always leave at least one apple in each tree when you harvest to keep the devil away.  So as you eagerly await the end of summer’s harsh glare and dream of warm apple cobbler and fallen leaves, we’ve brought you an episode from The White Vault, Season 5 Episode 2, Scatter. The White Vault is a found-footage horror drama that follows a repair team sent to discover the source of a mysterious signal coming from the remote Arctic research Station in Svalbard, Norway. Once the group reaches Outpost Fristed and makes the repairs they are trapped by a heavy snow storm. The mystery deepens and the team’s situation begins to unravel after they discover a service hatch in the bunker.  As season 5 opens the remaining team members attempt to return to Svalbard. With their nightmares and terrible visions in tow, they find themselves facing another isolating storm and breakdown in communications. 11th Hour Audio is thrilled to share The White Vault and its talented cast and crew with our listeners. To hear the chilling tales they’ve created for the 11th Hour Challenge, visit or follow the links provided.

11th Hour Creature Feature of the Month - Windover and Hide

May is a provocatively, spirited month of the year. It started with the fires of Beltain, budding trees, blooming flowers, and Mother’s Day. In the middle of the month, the Blood Moon will cast the sky into an eerie glow as a total lunar eclipse. The Flower Moon will rise near the end of the month, reminding us all that growth stems from transformation. It is a metamorphic month of mothers and moons. So with that in mind, we are delighted to bring you two stories this month, Windover and Hide.   Windover comes to us from the Wireless Theatre Company. It is a supernatural story set on the wild Atlantic coast of North Devon. This ethereal ghost story follows a young woman named Jenny who is on the brink of some major life changes. Jenny is troubled by spectral visions of the past and an unresolved tragedy. The story includes the voice talent of Beth Eyre who has also appeared in two 11th Hour Challenge productions - Ivory Tower and The Radcliffe Square Labrinyth.   An atmospheric ghost story set on the wild Atlantic coast of North Devon, told through the eyes of Jenny, a girl of nearly nineteen, whose recently deceased grandmother, Mary, has bequeathed her ‘Windover,’ the cottage where she is staying with her father and his girlfriend during the summer vacation. Before long Jenny starts to be troubled by visions of two teenage girls, and learns, from a photograph taken in 1934, that these girls are her grandmother, Mary and her friend Cathy. As the days go by and Jenny becomes increasingly disturbed by the visions, she befriends Stephen, a neighbouring farmer and tries to enlist his help in making sense of what’s happening to her. Stephen, however, is evasive and little by little Jenny finds herself drawn into the tragic events that occurred nearly eighty years earlier. Starring - Emma Kelly, Sean Baker, Richard Holt, Colleen Prendergast, Beth Eyre, Amy Raine Jackson, Richard Reed and Pamela Binns Written by Brita Bradbury, Directed by Cherry Cookson, Edited by Malcolm Thorp, Produced by Mariele Runacre Temple Hide is a special Mother’s Day treat for all those tired mums out there. This short fright will remind you that sometimes there is something under the bed and we still don’t want to know about it. The story comes to us from Quirky Voices Presents and Sarah Golding. Sarah has been an 11th Hour Challenge participant from the beginning and has been a part of 13 different productions including - The Hidden Truths, Castle of Horror, and Fidget.     Created by Sarah Golding of Quirky Voices Presents A short horror story full of tension and ....horror. Tom, a young boy cannot get to sleep - he hears something...someone breathing in his bedroom late at night. His mum, trying to get her work done tries to comfort him.

11th Hour Creature Feature of the Month - Ancient Evil

If you want to survive a horror story there are two things you should never be. Friends with underage, horny inebriates and anywhere near an archaeologist or their research. In the horror realm curiosity is often the driving force behind carnage and mayhem that ensues. And almost no one is more unreservedly inquisitive than the archaeologist. From mummies to child-possessing demons archaeologists have unleashed enough horrors into our imaginations to make Pandora seem circumspect. So in celebration of all that archaeologists have resurrected for us, we’re digging deep into the repository and brushing the dust from an old favorite from the Aural Stage Studio’s “Dialed In” series, Ancient Evil. When an ancient Xipe curse is released in the university's Archaeology Lab, Ryan, an overworked grad student, and his scatterbrained advisor must contain it to prevent an apocalyptic outbreak on campus.

11th Hour Creature Feature of the Month - Kiss: The Audio Series - Tomorrow’s Diary (My Very First Time)

It’s February and here in the Mid-Atlantic, that means Oh baby, it is cold outside! So for this month’s feature, we thought we would heat things up a bit with an offering from -  Kiss: The Audio Series.  “Some believe that a kiss is one of the most intimate connections that two people can share, but when it comes to Washington, D.C.'s Lipstick Serial Killer; a mere kiss could easily equate to death. The "Kiss of Death," as she is known to the public; preys on attractive, unsuspecting men with only one objective in mind: TO KILL! Sealing each murder with a sinful kiss to the frontal lobe, The "Kiss of Death" plots to destroy every man in her path for as long as she can.” Kiss: The Audio Series comes to us from 11th Hour Audio Challenge participant, Xperience J. who created Santa Baby for 12th Night Horror and starred in Highway Chile.    Hailing from Alexandria, Virginia, Xperience J, AKA Crystal Judkins, describes herself as a multi-hyphenate creative and we agree. As part of a musically talented, art-infused family she was destined for a life steeped in creativity. Crystal wrote her first novel in the 10th grade and has since published three books. She is the co-founder of Two Pens and a Grind Publications, Black Audio Dramas Exist, and the founder of Shhh! Jus’ Listen Media where she uses her love of sound to produce innovative audio experiences. She is an audio producer, director, voice actor, and sound designer. In addition to Kiss: The Audio Series, she has also produced Past Due and is in pre-production on her next audio project. When asked the probing and intellectual question “Why horror?” Crystal explained that she has loved horror since she was a child. “There’s this thrill in being scared… can’t really explain it but I’ve always enjoyed it. Even the cheesy ones, it was a natural transition for me. I love the psychology behind horror, especially psychological thrillers… it’s a rush.” Whatever her reason we’re glad she’s here to lend her voice and talent to the genre. Crystal weaves the dark threads of sexuality, violence, and power into an immersive, guilty pleasure.  Series Created by: Xperience J and WAR  Episode Written by: Xperience J Produced/Sound Design by: Xperience J Cast: Melanie E.

11th Hour Audio - Creature Feature of the Month - Dreaming of a Dead Christmas

2021 marks the 10th anniversary of Campfire Radio Theater and to show our appreciation for a decade of immersive listening experiences, we wanted to kick off our first-ever Monthly Feature with the mastermind behind Campfire Radio Theater, John Ballentine. John is a familiar voice in the audio drama horror world. Like many of us, his passion for audio fiction was sparked by the stories emanating from his radio. John recalls listening to programs such as, Nightfall and Bradbury 13 and catching the creative bug to try something similar. "I’ve always had a passion for fictional storytelling and writing. Had a bit of a history working with audio and filmmaking as well along with various other artistic endeavors. Combining these skill sets into producing audio drama proved to be a natural progression." - John Ballentine It’s December and the Holidays are upon us. It’s that nostalgic time of year. A time for eggnog and cookies, greeting cards and latkes, Yule logs, parades, and zombies.  Yes, Zombies. What else would you expect from us? This December we’re kicking off the yuletide cheer with a featured Christmas show from our friends at Campfire Radio Theater. And so, as John would say... "Welcome friend. Have a seat by the fire... Make yourself comfortable." Dreaming of a Dead Christmas Two college coeds returning home for the holidays unwittingly unleash a zombie outbreak at a truck stop after running over a mysterious man on a desolate country road. Warning: May contain explicit language and graphic content not suitable for younger audiences.
