The Best Multimedia Horror Story I've Seen in Some Time...

...and it's serialized at Reddit of all places.

Correspondence is an ongoing story that revolves around a cast of different characters all terrorized by...something. What's brilliant about it is not so much the story itself (which is good on its own), but the wrinkles the author(s) add in. For example, some of the characters have Reddit accounts, some emails sent to the addresses in the story actually work, there are images (such as the one above, which gave me chills in context), there is video. It's really, really, really well done.

I definitely spent a good hour following this rabbit hole earlier, and I can't wait for the next installment. Hopefully you'll enjoy this, too. It is NSFW if there is sensitivity to language and violence, and NSFL (not safe for life) if you read this after dark and have any intention of sleeping.
