Cicadas

"“CICADA MADNESS” IS A ROCK-AND-ROLL FUELED, SCI-FI HORROR CLASSIC IN THE MAKING, PROVING REAL LIFE CAN BE JUST AS SCARY AS FICTION.
In CICADA MADNESS!, a one-hour audio drama, fans of creature features, B-horror movies, and science aficionados can revel in Sam Fishman’s story of giant, mutated cicadas that will (hopefully) continue to seem more terrifying when compared to the real deal after they start emerging from deep underground this summer."

Morbidly Beautiful
