    AUDIBLE DEBUTS CHILLING NEW SCI-FI FROM BERLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL WINNER IVAR LEON MENGER.

    Callum Blue (Dead Like Me), Anastasia Griffith (Damages) and Marc Warren (Hustle) star in new audio-drama from Germany's master of thriller.

    Catalysing the surge of interest in classic 70s and 80s sci-fi thrillers, and just in time for Halloween, Audible today exclusively debuts Monster 1983, an original audio-drama from Berlinale-winning director Ivan Leon Menger. Directed by multiple-Audie and RPA winner Cherry Cookson, the chilling tale stars Callum Blue (Dead Like Me), Anastasia Griffith (Damages) and Marc Warren (Hustle) amongst others.

    Drawing influences from Poltergeist, Stand By Me and E.T. and other Spielberg classics, the story unfolds in the small coastal town of Harmony Bay, Oregon. Still reeling from a sudden and profound family tragedy, Sheriff Cody uproots his elder son Michael, and younger daughter Amy, from the chaos of Orlando to begin a new, more relaxed life in the Beaver State. Soon after their arrival however, this new-found tranquillity is disturbed by a succession of brutal but mysterious deaths. As the plot twists and turns its way through small-town secrecy, psychiatry wards and the supernatural, Cody comes under increasing pressure to solve each new case whilst keeping his family safe from harm.

    Ivar Leon Menger, author of Monster 1983, said: 'Having been raised on Spielberg, King and Kubrick I can't remember a time in my life when I wasn't watching some kind of horror, sci-fi or psychological thriller. I think the legacy of 70s and 80s horror cinema runs quite strongly through Monster 1983, and that's part of the reason I decided to create an audio-only story, it emphasises both the nostalgia and suspense for listeners.'

    Steve Carsey, Director of Original Programming at Audible, said: 'After the enormous success of Alien, Out of the Shadows we knew there was a huge appetite for compelling sci-fi audio fiction. Ivar's stories have been immensely successful in Germany so we're really excited to introduce his work to UK listeners.'

    Monster 1983 is a Wireless Theatre production for Audible Studios. Written by Ivar Leon Menger, translated by Guy Meredith and directed by Cherry Cookson with music scoring by Ynie Ray.

    Couldn't get enough

    It was like listening to a play. Loved all the sound effects and characters, and the ending was a total surprise, who the "Monster" was. I would love to see a second book continued where that left off. And it did say to be continued, hope, hope. The only thing I had a hard time understanding was the fortune teller when she spoke. Some I could understand, but most I couldn't, it was too distorted. But other than that, and what happened to Deputy Taylor, left us hanging there. Come on give us part two.

    Not worth a credit

    I took a chance on this, having grown up in Oregon and assuming by the title it was a cash in on the popular Netflix show Stranger Things.
    However the story is rudimentary and not very interesting and the pop culture references attempting to place it in 1983 feel very shoehorned and in some cases wrong. Poltergeist is rated PG, for instance, not R like is mentioned in the story. It was also very lazily translated as it uses British vernacular in a story set in rural Oregon. Nobody says Torch, or Holiday, or Iced Lolly. All combined this felt more like a chore to get through than enjoyment, then everything wrapped up quickly in a lot of exposition and a boring twist ending. Sadly I can't recommend this, much as I wanted to.

    Awful

    I believe this was translated from German, so a lot of the dialog is stilted and nonsensical. It sounds like an amateur hour retelling of Stranger Things but far less polished and captivating. Couldn't take it and returned for a refund.

    A bit amateurish

    Uneven and overdone; very unpolished. It was hard to stay in the flow of the story with the constant musical interludes and the odd choice of tone used by the actors. Some characters sounded best at 1.5 speeds, while others sounded drunk at the same speed. . . odd. The story itself got a little tangled with two plot lines that seemed to keep the trajectory as foggy as the coastal setting. I'm still not sure about the shark placenta blue plate special; and whether we were dealing with a vampire, some kind of shape shifter monster or a *red* herring. Frightening--and not in the way intended. This one needed a tighter story, better dialogue, better narrator, and lots more rehearsals before recording.

    Horrible

    I have thoroughly enjoyed other Audible Original Dramas and I was so excited when I saw this latest release unfortunately I only made half way through before I couldn't take it any more! The plot is senseless. Full of strange, irrelevant details. Confusing and hard to follow. Story makes absolutely no sense!

    Arrggghhh! So Disappointing I actually returned for a refund!

    This was terrible. Sorry. The 'acting' was not good. This review is actually better than this. Save your credits.

    A must read for mystery fans

    Loved the old radio style production. The music, background effects, multiple different voices, and many unusual twists.

    Clichéd but great fun!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this 1980s horror trip and will definitely listen to Season 2 as well. The story is definitely clichéd, but if you don't take it too seriously, it is great fun.
