Great podcast

So much fun!   (5/5)

These stories are great dramatizations of creepy stories. Excellent quality in both story and production. If you’re looking for a good chill check out episode one and it’ll give you a good idea of what is in store. I love this show

Stay!   (5/5)

PLEASE DON’T LEAVE US HANGING AGAIN!!! I literally went through your entire archive of episodes and was sad when I heard every one of them. I was more than willing to re-listen to them all again... but now that you are back...I don’t have to do that right!? I listen to TheNoSleep Podcast however, there is something more refreshing about your show. I’m a fan! And I am sure I’m not the only one! Thanks for all the great stories! This intrepid listener is waiting for more content!

Glad your back :)   (5/5)

Glad you are back :)

Great Creepypasta reeds!!! The best.   (5/5)

Absolutely love this!!! “ Dying” for new episodes.

Dillon the Red   (5/5)

I enjoy the way they present creepy pastas. Most only seem to just read them, but the serialized versions, as well as injecting humor to more famous ones is highly enjoyable. I recommend this to all who enjoy creepy pastas.

Cut off long character intro   (4/5)

I would give 5 stars but some of the intros are very unnecessary and dragged out. Gets frustrating; I legit just skip through it to listen to the actual episode, other than that, it’s awesome and very well produced.

Top notch #1 on my podcasts   (5/5)

Love the stories. the pasta shade and the rest of the crew are all great narrators and really put you in the story’s. Clawing at my hour glass waiting for the next episode.... See you sooner or later, Mr. Grimm 77

🔪Jeff the killer🔪   (5/5)

(Jeff the killer is cute I wish I was his girlfriend btw I’m Harley Quinn)

Exceptional, cant get enough   (5/5)

Look I never tried pod casts until last Year when I got a commute but I found this one and became hooked. I only wish for more! Please continue making the excellent quality content, and let me know how I can donate to support this excellent audio drama.

The host   (2/5)

This podcast would be ok if not for the host. Guy is worse than David Cummings.

Consistently Impressive   (5/5)

I could not ask for more. Midnight Marinara brings so much to the table. Great voice-acting, interesting writing, and a very compelling atmosphere. Whether or not you're a fan of creepypasta, please give this fantastic radio drama a shot!

Unique Format Creepypasta   (5/5)

This is a wonderful addition to your spooky podcast collection - the original and unique way they tackle familiar internet urban legends and well-known creepy pastas ensures that older, oft-heard stories will sound fresh and different ... a couple that I found boring on “Creepy” were much more interesting to me here on “Midnight Marinara” simply because of the way they went about presenting it. (And good luck with your flat’s leaky roof, rising damp problems: we wish you all the best and hope you’ll be back releasing new episodes as soon as you can~ )

Amazing! Best Creepypasta podcast!   (5/5)

As a kid I used to listen to old audio cassettes of Jack Benny and other radio shows, this podcast captures the same feel of those old shows with a creepy spin. By far my all time favorite source for a good scary story. The voices and effects are superbly done, the stories are perfectly adapted to the radio show format. Amazing work!

Awesome - thank you.   (5/5)

I've been losing my sight because of JMD and it's been harder and harder to read. Between this and UCA, I always have something to listen to. Dunno if you read these, but I wanted to say thank you all for your hard work.

Great creepypasta show   (5/5)

I listen to every horror podcast I can get my hands on, there are hundreds, and this one is in the top ten percent. It takes a different approach to creepypastas that livens up an often stale segment of the horror genre with some humor and pretty good voice acting.

Best scary story podcast out there!   (5/5)

I heard about this podcast because it was mentioned on the simply scary podcast. Both of these podcasts are really good especially this one. It is sad that the creator of it had to go on hiatus but it is starting back up again in October. I enjoy this podcast more than you could know.

Love it   (5/5)

Great show. I love the fact that it is original and not the same as all the other "creppypasta's".

Best podcast ever.   (5/5)

I love this podcast so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so much because it's so horrific, hilarious, clever, well-done and so much more! I've been listening since Ghost Club and I've been following along every with every episode since then. And you guys have inspired me to write more and more horror. Your podcast isn't just entertainment for me I've actually learned soooooo much (mostly from UCA). I used to like Creepypasta's like Jeff The Killer lol and now I'm actually starting to realize that Creepypastas that are only creepy to a nine year old aren't actually creepy (I first read JTK when I was nine) and I have gotten very far in writing. You guys also helped me get over some bad bad stuff.

Groovy!   (5/5)


Best part of my day   (5/5)

I listen to these when I'm working, and you guys make my shift a whole lot less boring. Undercooked Analysis is my favorite part of my daily routine. Keep it up, guys!

Creepypasta with Flavor!   (5/5)

Recently started listening around episode 50 and wow does it not disappoint. If you are a fan of Creepypasta and want a very serial and very well narrated show on Creepypasta along with a little comedy-spice mixed in, check out Midnight Marinara !

Funny analysis, creative adaptations   (5/5)

Instead of just reading online horror stories like thousands of other people online, they make them into radio plays which is vastly preferable. If I had to complain, it would be that the host's Peter Lorre impersonation is kind of grating, but that's easily skipped.

For the Love of Creepypasta   (5/5)

This is a podcast for those whoe love Creepypasta - the good, the bad, and the ugly. The plays are crafted from a combination of wisely selected materal and excellent production quality. And the Undercookd Analyses are always absolutely ridiculous, though never more so than the works they cover.

Decent show, could use better production   (4/5)

A good show. I like what they're trying to do here, and though they often don't suceed, it gets an A for effort. Wish they'd get better actors and writers and editors for their material, though, and the host is a bit too over the top for my taste. But not a bad spooky story podcast, though it's more tongue in cheek than true horror.

Interesting and Creative   (3/5)

The Midnight Marinara Series is one that I have been following for awhile now and it is an interesting take on various creepypastas in the interesting radio-show style. While it is a unique retelling of stories, it can be slightly corny now and then. The Undercooked Analysis is an insightful, informal break down, word by word, of stories and is fun to listen to in the background. The analysis is fairly decent in terms of literary continuity, but it occasionally gets off topic, sometimes up to 20 minutes of personal chatter that may or may not have to do with the story. However, it’s like making fun and nitpicking with your friends. Mic quality for guests on both shows could be improved (UCA guests could record their own audio and not having the Skype audio recorded). Overall, both shows are entertaining for fans of creepypasta, internet literature, and horror in general. Most of the tiny little things can be forgiven and it can be fun to listen to on a dark and eerie night.

Often Scary, More Often Hilarious   (5/5)

The episodes identified as Midnight Marinara are very good audio dramas, the Undercooked Analysis episodes are dramatic readings of stories that are popular online with some very amusing humor and surprisingly decent story discussion.

Love It!   (5/5)

I discovered this podcast when I caught up to another horror podcast and was looking for more spooky stories. I like the full productions and have enjoyed hearing some creepypastas I was already familiar with come to life and have loved being introduced to new ones. However, my favorite aspect of the podcast has come to be the Undercooked Analysis episodes in which several people get together, read a creepypasta, and dissect it. I find these episodes hilarious and insightful. While I initially came to this pods looking for scares, I've come to feel that David, Dead Palette and the rest are friends. If you like scary stories and finding out what makes a good (or in some cases very BAD) creepypasta, check out this podcast.

Highly recommended   (5/5)

If you love that tingle on the back of your neck, or a chuckle as you look around for anyone watching. Listen to this unique and wonderful series as they dive into the wonderful and complicated word of creepypastas. Very well done and a blast to listen to.

The best creepypasta analysis podcast available   (5/5)

I discovered this podcast over a year ago, when it was mostly "midnight marinara" episodes. These were great, and still are. Where this podcast truly shines is with the "undercooked analysis" episodes, which are always a joy to listen to. Analysis of all kinds of creepy(or crappy)pastas is consistently hilarious and interesting. This remains one of the only audio-only podcasts that runs through creepypastas while analyzing at the same time. Every time my podcast app shows a new episode of Midnight Marinara, I get actively excited. Very highly recommended.

Title   (5/5)

Really great and fun. Always gives me something to laugh at while I'm doing other things.

;) These guys are great   (5/5)

I haven't listened to much Midnight Marinara yet, because I have been so utterly consumed with UCA. It is kind of an amazing show. Perhaps that's just because it appeals so particularly to this niche in which I find myself. I aim to become a writer, and so I've been getting more serious about writing, and *much* more serious about literature. I've started thinking more about what I'm reading than I ever have before—dissecting it and the like, figuring out what makes it tick. Also, most of my teenage life was defined by my avid love for creepypastas, which I blindly consumed, enjoying some of the garbage ones, while much prefering the actually really great stories. Now, as an adult, I've found UCA, and it perfectly reconciles my dissection of stories, with some nostalgia for creepypastas. Also, the whole crew on UCA is great. If you enjoy friends mucking about and exchanging jokes, sometimes even joking around more than actually getting on with the main point of the show, then you'll adore this to bits. The chemistry between David King (and his defacto cohost, Dead Palette), and his guests, is amazing, and entertaining to hear unfold. They're all a bunch of lovable nerds making a mix of funny and unfunny (yet endearing) jokes.

A very needed addition   (5/5)

This is in my opinion a very nice addition to anyone's listening experience to anyone and its it is a nice mixture of Fun, suspension, and just in general a good nice relaxed time

Pretty much the best   (5/5)

I don't understand why somebody would give this show less than four stars. The radio drama is great, and Undercooked Analysis is literally the funniest thing I have ever heard. I have been following them for a year now, and I love every second of it.

Lofty Laughter to Shadowed Spooks!   (5/5)

With the two types of shows on this podcast, if you like creepypastas, you'll find at least one you like.

Love it :)   (5/5)

One of my favorite podcasts :)

really fun   (5/5)

haven't listened to all their stuff but what i've heard so far is great.

Amazing   (5/5)

Oh, where to start. I've been listening since the beginning, and ever since then, I feel like I've found home. I was recommended to listen by a comment on Reddit, and I had been looking for a good horror podcast for awhile. Midnight Marinara blends creepypasta and radio drama into the perfect sauce that both terrifies and satisfies the listener. As fans of both of the latter genres, I was ecstatic to find it. Not only did I fall in love with the content, I fell in love with the people. David, Dead Palette, and Kaela are all entertaining and wonderful people, and have rapidly evolved into my favorite Internet personalities. Midnight Marinara will stay a staple on my playlist for a long time to come!

midnights aight   (5/5)


It's a spicy meat-a-ball   (5/5)

One of the best podcasts I have ever listened to and very enjoyable!!

A+   (5/5)

I love these guys!

Amazing!   (5/5)

This podcast is my absolute favorite! UCA always makes me laugh and teaches me how not to write a story. Midnight Marinara is simply awesome from the acting to the audio. I would recommend this to a friend!

Great creepy listening   (5/5)

I was recommended to listen to the podcast by a friend and I have been enjoying it ever since. The radio dramas from Midnight Marinara are interesting to listen to and get your chills. My favorite so far is The Disappearance of Ashely, Kansas". I also enjoy the Undercooked Analysis. The banter between the host (or hostess as a few have been) and guests are fun to listen to as well as helpful insights to making a good Creepypasta. Very much recommended if you like creepy stories.

Sometimes goofy sometimes spooky   (5/5)

Always entertaining! The people involved are wonderful and intelligent and always make my day brighter. It's nice to see such creative people carving out their own. Can't wait for more UCA and audio plays!

Groovy.   (5/5)

Groovy as hell.

Amazing Podcast   (5/5)

This has to be one of my absolute favorite podcasts. Love listening to the audio plays of creepypasta, and Undercooked Analysis is so much fun to listen to, I feel like I learn something every time I listen to it. I'm always excited for new episodes, but kept forgeting to leave a review. I would 100% recommend this podcast.

Love for Undercooked   (5/5)

It’s become a bit of a ritual for me to listen to these podcasts while I work, and I’ve come to look forward to Undercooked Analysis the most. It’s a great way for me to revisit some of the creepy pastas I’d read before, as well as listen to a few I haven’t come across yet. I love the commentary, both the humorous and genuinely analytical, and I appreciate the perspective being brought to what makes the stories work and how the writing can be improved. Always looking forward to more.

Immersive   (5/5)

I really like the audio plays that this podcast does. The first one that I listened to was "The Disappearance of Ashley, Kansas" From that point on I was hooked on this podcast. I really like how they stay true to the original stories, but also manage to make them more immersive as radio theatre. The UCA shows are alright. I've listened to a couple of them so far, but I don't find them as entertaining as the audio dramas. All and all, I fully recommend that you at least give it a try.

Horrible and not in a good way.   (1/5)

This is just another bunch of clowns who like hearing themselves talk. The sound quality is really bad. They do not know how to or are too lazy to edit. Unorganized, unprofessional, uninteresting and very juvenile. Perhaps if you are in their circle it would make more sense. If you want a little club meeting you should have it off the air.

Eh   (2/5)

The writing is only okay and everything feels forced. It has some kinda cool concepts though

How   (5/5)

Do you rate 5 stars more than once?

Binge worthy   (5/5)

I found this podcast after Halloween this year, trying to "keep the party going". I ran through every episode in a few weeks. And I have to say that trying to find a show as well produced, or with story's this good,is difficult. I heard the podcast and host grow over the life of the show and felt I had to give a worthy review.

Really cool   (5/5)

A fun twist on the usual creepypasta and scary stories podcast

That awful host   (2/5)

The plays are really hit or miss. I would rate it a three, but the host drags it down to a two. What a corny, overdone and contrived accent.

Best Creepypasta podcast   (5/5)

I've been listening from the beginning but kept forgetting to rate it. By far my favorite podcast for creepypastas.

The best   (5/5)

I highly enjoy creepypasta, and have been looking for a good podcast to cover them. If you are looking for a good creepypasta podcast, then you are in the right place! It goes from making fun of Jeff the Killer to not wanting to sleep because of the Russian Sleep Experiment. The acting quality is amazing and I never get tiered of listening!

Wonderful production   (5/5)

This podcast has great production quality. Done well and with love for the content. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Creepy in the best way   (5/5)

I just discovered the podcast a few weeks ago after hearing it mentioned on "Shut Up, Leonard". Now I've already listened to every episode of this show and I'm bummed I'm out of material. Can't wait for new episodes to drop.

Amazing!   (5/5)

I was skeptical at first as I don't really enjoy readings of creepypasta since no one really does different voices. This podcast is absolutely wonderful in many regards. Voice and production work is top notch. I find myself listening to the stories over and over just because of this. The podcasts do a fantastic job of setting the mood and tone. Highly recommend any one, not just fans of creepypasta, who likes eerie stories to give this a listen. You won't be disappointed.

Very good, creepy podcast   (5/5)

If you want some creepy stories with high production value, this is the podcast for you. I find scary stories and lot of fun, and this podcast delivers. The actors are good, as well.

Greatly exceeded my expectations   (5/5)

I quite recently stumbled onto this podcast just looking for something to pass the time, but didn't have very high expectations. Now here I am, having listened to every last episode, wishing desperately that they would release more. :( it's a simple, radio-theater-sequel telling of spooky stories, but it's very easy to get absorbed into. I would highly recommend to those in search of goosebump inducing stories. Well done.

Awesome.   (5/5)

Creepypasta alone are great, but creepypasta with acting and ambience are awesome. Everyone who likes a good horror story needs to subscribe now.
