About Downright Creepy
Downright Creepy was established in 2009 and lives under the parent company of Fable – an experience-based agency. As a genre site, it covers all things creepy from news, games, toys and editorial reviews. In 2013, Downright Creepy co-founded Panic Fest in Kansas City, Mo., and has since been named by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the best genre fests in the world in 2018, 2019, and 2020. Covering events such as SXSW, Comic Con, and Fantastic Fest allowed DRC to network and create a small community of fans. Trying to curate content that they themselves would want to see as fans led them to embark on a new adventure with the //crickets podcast network, creating original series ranging from evergreen storytelling and episodic shows to bi-monthly shows that cover current events.
