23 - "The Russian Sleep Experiment"

The experiment of revisiting old Midnight Marinara stories continues, this time with David and Slimebeast as the test subjects. Together they go over the empirical data surrounding this popular Creepypasta from the early days of the genre, and see if it still holds up.

22 - "The Art of Jacob Emory"

David invites Seid and Raevell of The Witching Hour back to discuss the piece that inspired Midnight Marinara's 2nd episode, the tale of a troubled artist and a very weird town. Is the story a true work of art, or did it take a remix from the Pasta Shade to turn a troubled tale into a gallery display?

21 - "Just Telling Stories"

With Midnight Marinara's 5th anniversary on the horizon, David introduces a new segment looking back at the stories that were adapted into audio drama. Does the source material for the first episode still hold up on its own? David and Kaela check in to find out.

"Just Telling Stories" was written by Karl Drinkwater. The version read here was originally posted on Creepypasta.com and is now removed. An updated version, along with several other short stories by Karl, can be found in his short story collection They Move Below here.

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?

“Jeff: The Killer” was written by TheLawliet10. Read along here.

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?

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?
