University students investigate a noise phenomenon in haunted woods known as ‘th’rattlin’…


“The title gives away that Th’dread Rattlin’ is an undistinguished and somewhat unwieldy addition to the world of indie releasing […] It’s quite philosophical in tone and higher browed than most indies, but perhaps too realistic for its own good because it is quite mundane.” Leofwine_draca
