The Blood Crow Stories
About This Show
The Blood Crow Stories is an anthology series of horror stories. Our first season highlights the story of the S.S. Utopia, a cruise ship in the early 1900's. Modern-day college student, Max, begins to do his thesis on the audio diaries of the passengers on the ship. What he didn't know were the horrors that were waiting for him among the tapes, and why the ship sank so mysteriously almost 100 years ago.Read more »

Diverse and Scary
I'm caught up on both seasons now and I'm loving it. Season 1 had a good slow burn to it with layered narrative and a good amount of creepy scary hits. Solid acting, unsettling sound effects, and really solid relationships between the characters. It was easy to fall for them.
Season 2 so far has been less horror and more thriller, but the tension balances with humor and heartwarming moments really well. I love these new characters and everything they've gone through. Expanding out from tapes on a boat to a vast Old West was a big shift, but it's been a fun ride.
And don't forget to pay attention to the episode intros: it's like a third story that spans the whole show.

Some Neat Storylines that Often Don't Pan Out
Each season of The Blood Crow Stories is a new tale; I will review season 1 and season 2 separately. Season 1 started with a lot of promise, but devolved as soon as the main villain began talking (lots of ridiculous, repetitive monologuing; "ah yes, I have lived centuries, but you are the only human to impress me"; "I am older than humanity itself" and so on and so forth). The voice acting from many of the characters was somewhat inexperienced, which is noticeable as the ones with accents have the exact same inflections for everything they said, making the dialogue seem very forced, awkward, and inauthentic. Also, while I liked the idea of a meta narrative (podcast within a podcast), the narrator of the podcast was so histrionic and shrill that he was very difficult to listen to. Also, his character went from 0-100 in terms of crazy, which means he was at level 100 in terms of crazy for the last five episodes, making his character arc very boring.
The second season has been much improved. The characters are more compelling, the voice acting seems more even in terms of acting ability, and the writers have done away with the meta narrative. There isn't one big bad guy, which adds a lot more complexity and interest to the story. Keep it up!
