Review of The Grist Mill: God of the Razor and If You Take My Hand, My Son

SFFaudio Review

Grist Mill - God of the RazorThe Grist Mill: “The God of the Razor” and “If You Take My Hand, My Son”
By Joe R. Lansdale and Mort Castle; Performed by a Full Cast
1 CD – 1 hour – [AUDIO DRAMA]
Publisher: STH Productions
Published: 2008
Themes: / Horror / Gods / Razors / Fathers / Afterlife /

A cloud across the moon can change the entire face of the night. It changes the way some people change their clothes… the way women change their hair.
— “God of the Razor”, Joe R. Lansdale

This CD contains two episodes from The Grist Mill audio drama series. The first is Joe R. Lansdale’s God of the Razor, which finds the protagonist confronting a weird guy in an empty house who talks about moons and clouds and eyes on his razor. (Note to self: if a weird guy mentions the word “razor”, it’s time to go, regardless of whether or not he sees eyes on them.) Like it says on the box, this one’s not for the squeamish.

Next is Mort Castle’s If You Take My Hand, My Son, which is a wrenching tale of a man who, after an accident, sees his father, who he had had a terrible time with when he lived. Is the man’s urge to reconcile with his father stronger than his will to live?

The audio drama is first rate – excellent actors, great sound, and two stories that are well worth hearing. So, if you are looking for a chill this Halloween, this collection would be an excellent choice.

Review of Slasher by F. Paul Wilson

Aural Noir: Review

Grist Mill - SlasherThe Grist Mill: “Slasher”
By F. Paul Wilson; Performed by a Full Cast
Audio Download – 1/2 hour – [AUDIO DRAMA]
Publisher: STH Productions
Published: 2008

A man loses his daughter to a killer. At the funeral, he is approached by an FBI agent who keeps him up to date on the investigation. When the investigation doesn’t go the way the man wants it to… well, I can say no more. This audio drama is definitely worth 30 minutes of your time, if only to experience the ending.

Sound effects are used in a professional manner and the acting is pretty good. The only thing that turned me off about this drama is a bit of jarring piano music that is used at a couple of points in the story – it wasn’t appropriate for the mood.

This is my first experience listening to an F. Paul Wilson story, and my first experience hearing an audio drama from The Grist Mill – I look forward to hearing stuff from both again.

Three audio dramas (two episodes on the CD) from The Grist Mill! These titles are horror, very well done. Radio Drama Revival says: “Slasher” is just a startlingly awesome piece of audio, the best of the best out there.

“God of the Razor” – Master horror writer Joe R. Lansdale introduces us to an ancient razor and the sinister god who controls all who use it. WARNING: this audio is NOT for the squeamish.

“If You Take My Hand, My Son” – Mort Castle’s audio play that tells the tale of a reconciliation between a father and son that takes place beyond the grave; a reconciliation with terrifying results. Taken from his book “Moon on the Water”.
