Review: Family Heirloom by Roderick Morrison
The Adams family has an heirloom passed down to them from generations and is not a typical piece of jewelry, house, or car as one would think. It is an inheritance no one would want to receive.
The Heirloom is a curse that has followed this family for generations and is now upon the young boy Ben Adams, the youngest member of the family. So, what is this curse, and why did this family get stuck with it in the first place? Tune into Spotify to listen to the whole story.
The story is set at the Adams’ family house, situated in the middle of a town. Ben Adams, a young boy lived there in the house with his twin sister Jean Adams and their single mother. The family lived in the house as it was impregnated with enchantments and spells that were able to subside or delay the impact of the curse, if not get rid of it completely.
The Adams family’s bloodline is plagued with a curse that has been passed on in the family like an heirloom for centuries and is now upon the young boy Ben Adams who is terrified of the curse but still tries hard to fight it and manages to get over his fears to some extent.
Ben is a shy, introverted, average-looking young boy who is brilliant at studies but lacks confidence. His twin sister Jean is older than him by 72 seconds, she is bold and beautiful, strong and hard-working and unlike Ben, she is confident and has great features.
This made Ben feel sad and envious, he started feeling worse when he realized that the curse has chosen him as a vessel instead of Jean who is technically older than him.
The family was always followed by a woman who looked like a dead and rotting corpse. In the night the family was haunted by a shadow-like figure whom they called the pain eater. The family tried every possible way to get rid of the curse for generations but all their efforts were in vain.
They even tried to stop their family from growing but somehow the woman of the family got pregnant despite all the efforts. Now, Ben, the current receiver of the curse, decided to fight his fears and find a way to get rid of the curse. Tune into the podcast to find out what he founds out about the curse he has inherited and what he does to get rid of it.

Reasons to tune into this Podcast/Audio Story
Native African curses and stories are quite a popular theme among horror movies. This is one such story but it shows the curses within a Native African family which have been passed on for generations and was apparently good spirit before becoming an evil one.
I enjoyed listening to the story as it introduced me to a new storyline, different from the typical ghost stories. The sound effects and the dramatic plot development add to the thrilling experience.
The story will leave you wondering about how being in a certain family and having a certain ancestry can shape one’s whole existence. The story guarantees goosebumps and will keep you pondering around it.
