Todd Keisling ‘Radio Free Nowhere’ Review

Radio Free Nowhere - Darker

Written by: Matt Molgaard

Ever read a story and think, that should totally be a movie? Radio Free Nowhere is that story. In fact, this could make for a tremendous installment of a Creepshow anthology. It’s a brisk moving tale that illuminates relationship issues as well as otherworldly influences. Supernatural, you ask? Well, yes, to a degree.

A young couple is out on the road, and everything seems as fine as could be, until a strange tune fills the air, capturing the attention of Ashley. A quick stop at a gas station proposes some foreshadowing, as the clerk offers the woman a pair of earplugs. He’s clearly aware of strange local happenings, but Ashley dismisses the offer with little thought. It’s a mistake, as moments later the melody lures the couple to a lake that swallows secrets… and humans.

An excellent tale from the jump, Keisling proves that when busy with the output, he’s a monster with the narrative. This is an engaging piece loaded with memorable personalities and a damn fine twist. When it comes to conclusions, this one delivers.

My only complaint? Radio Free Nowhere is just too short. I wanted more. I wanted to learn more of Ashley and Conrad’s relationship. I craved a deeper backstory to the mysterious lake, and the odd song that draws the unsuspecting to the waters. I didn’t get it, which is a tad disappointing, but overall, this is a strong, condensed story that isn’t likely to leave any genre fan feeling deprived.

Recommended? Oh, yes!

This one goes live next month!
