18 - "Jeff: The Killer" 2018 (#200)

For an ominous unknown killer, our old friend Jeff sure has a habit of making himself known. In what is UCA's 200th episode in the grand scheme of things, David, Kaela, Allen, Seid and Abysmii are offered yet another attempt at spinning a Jeff story to make it more compelling. Will it succeed where others have failed?

Bonus - Live at Midsummer Scream 2018 (Part 2)

Closing out their performance at Midsummer Scream, the Creative Horror gang reads a couple of stories blind, one of which would go on to be a proper episode you no doubt heard.

For the Part 1 of this panel, listen to Midnight Marinara here.

Performed July 28th, 2018 at the Long Beach Convention Center, featuring David King, Kaela Berry, Allen Chaney, Jesse "Seid," Reyes, Abysmii, Papreeka and Matt Holley. Video recording by Lisa Tom. Special thanks to Zack Sokol and Ben Dickow.

14 - Trapped in the Bathroom Story

David and Matt are stuck in NoSleep this week, but are sent a Patron's Poison to ease things along. With a promising premise right from the outset and storytelling style that seems to work with the NoSleep mold, will this story come out of the bathroom smelling fresh as a daisy, or is it better to flush it away?

13 - "The Book of the Ravenous" (Midsummer Scream 2018)

Our 13th episode in the new run (and 195th episode overall) features the Creative Horror Crew all together in the aftermath of Midsummer Scream, reading a story they started to cover at the Midnight Marinara panel the day before! David, Kaela, Allen, Seid, Abysmii, Papreeka and Matt Holley (with special guest appearances by Gracey) wonder: is this verbose tale of a creepy cookbook worth the effort to finish?

"The Book of the Ravenous" is credited to William Buckley. Read along here.

12 - Wrestling Creepypasta

If it exists, then there's probably Creepypasta of it: such is the case for Allen and his Monday Night crew as he brings them on to see if there's any good stories that are based around professional wrestling. Will they succeed, or are they just trying to distract you from the fact that in 1998, The Undertaker threw Mankind off Hell In A Cell, and plummeted 16 ft through an announcer's table?

05 - "Midnight Train"

David, Allen and Kaela get an express ticket to more human horrors in this story of a man's life, his near-death experience at the hands of an abusive father, and an encounter with a supernatural steam engine. Will the story make it to the end of the line intact, or will it lose its passengers along the way?

03 - "A Scarecrow For God"

If you stare into the stars long enough, do the stars stare back? David, Allen and Abysmii are going to find out in this odd sci-fi account of a cosmic discovery that could shake humanity's understanding of life to its core. Does the story succeed in this profound attempt, or is it trying to shout into a void?

"A Scarecrow For God" is credited to survivalprocedure. Read along here.

02 - "The Seer of Possibilities"

David and Allen tend to see one outcome for many of the stories they read, but the possibility that they will be pleasantly surprised always persists. Will this story of an average Joe's gradual moral decay at the hands of a sinister entity be a good read, or has that possibility been ruled out?

"The Seer of Possibilities" is credited to Creepy Thomas O. Read along here.

01 - "Does Anyone Know a Good Plumber?" (w/ Random Encounters)

David shares an intentionally tongue-in-cheek NoSleep story with some of the folks behind Random Encounters, who have no idea what they're getting themselves into. Will this amuse as intended, or is it better to put the cat back in the suitcase?

"Does anyone know a good plumber? I did one of those stupid rituals and now my shower is leaking. And there’s a faceless guy in my kitchen" is credited to narrativeofthelife. Read along here.
