It may be the abridgment, but this attempt at horror is more fatiguing than frightening. Barker's story goes in various directions with little regard for logic or character motivation. Even experienced narrator John Glover can't do much with Barker's banal dialogue. D.A.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
