28 May Season 2, Episode 8 – “Passion Plays”
Welcome to Season 2, Episode 8 of The Simply Scary Podcast. This episode of our program is hosted by G.M. Danielson.
This shows offering brings together the essence of all definitions of the word passion. More importantly, passion as defined by the state or capacity of being acted on by external agents or forces. Let us see how these forces touch our waking world to transform it into a nightmare reality, otherwise known as our “Passion Plays.”
“The Shadows Will Get You” written by Brandon Wills and performed by Olivia Steele, featuring Kyra Greif (Lauren), Brindolyn McNair (mother), Jason Hill (Frank/father), Heather Ordover (Aunt Charlotte), Jesse Cornett (Uncle Victor), and Aaron Ordover (Arthur). Production by Karen Gunnarsdóttir and Jesse Cornett. Score by Jesse Cornett. Passion can be as painful as it is pleasurable. This next story will acquaint you with malevolence of a different kind as the dark proclaims its passion for consuming you.
“Warning Signs” written by John Andreini, and performed by Brindolyn McNair (Janine Wallace/narrator), featuring Jason Hill (Julian Cutter), Eden (Carol), Jesse Cornett (retired partner, second officer), and Steve Taylor (Officer Kendall). Production by Christopher Rowe and Jesse Cornett. Score by Jesse Cornett. As we take the final turn on our journey we will bring you something that is a bit different from your normal creepypasta horror fare. This story borrows from a classic tale to introduce to us how old fears can be as frightening as new fears. And curiosity can definitely kill the cat.
“A Heart’s Obsession” written by Viktoria Wasiltchenko, and performed by Eden (narrator). Production by Jesse Cornett. Score by Jesse Cornett. Enjoy a delicious helping of homemade delight with this romantic-horror noir. When the beat of a heart is what motivates you nothing will satisfy the urge. And the only answer is to be close to the one you love, but how close is too close?
“Red” written by Leanne Jamison, and performed by Ashley Tolfo (narrator, Jenna), featuring Luke Fischer (man), Jesse Cornett (warden), Olivia Steele (interviewer), Otis Jiry (president), and Eden (volunteer). Production by Chazz Ravenelle and Jesse Cornett. Score by Jesse Cornett. It is time to make you stand at attention as the passion of a nation works to overcome the problems of modern society- free will, open thought and individual consciousness. But can the passion of individuals stand up to the totalitarian regime of the not so distant future?
