The Mantawauk Caves

3.9/5

Critic Rating

Winner: Best Fiction Podcast, iHeart Podcast Awards.  On the night of May 10, 2007, three boys entered a cave in Mantawauk County, Tennessee. Only one made it out alive. The other two were found ten days later. They had been attacked by someone - or something. The investigation that followed revealed town secrets as old as the caves themselves and put a third teenage boy, James Fincher, on death row. This haunting narrative follows Julien Solas, an amateur writer and James' friend who’s been haunted by the events ever since.  Now, with Fincher's execution looming, Julien returns home to reconcile his past...

Michael Bergonzi • Audio Drama Reviews Apr 5, 2023

"It’s a serious take on something that Audible’s “Unlicensed” original podcast handles with humor and character quirks. It uses all the tropes and does some of them well and others not so much....what “Mantawauk Caves” does do well, it excels in—almost nullifying the less than enjoyable or overdone aspects. The narration by the main character is often in one ear out the other. Aside from a few flashback scenes playing in the background as he narrates it, what you need to know is simple."

Ximena Smith • Stuff NZ Apr 1, 2023

"...so far have certainly had a creepy edge to them, but nothing too petrifying yet – although I suspect that will come in the nine remaining episodes. The show uses 3-D audio, so listening with headphones is your best bet if you want the full immersive experience."
