32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 30: The Tomb of...

Well, unbelievably enough, we’re coming up on time to put 32 Days of Halloween back into the coffin for another year. The Halloween Season, of course, extends through New Year’s, so don’t worry yourself about that. But...

Macabre (1958)

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 28: Macabre!

First, it’s time for some more old-time radio with Boris Karloff in the 1941 episode of Inner Sanctum called “Fog.” If you’re on a time budget, at least listen to the announcer and his intro. Sanctum had one of the...

Devil Doll (1964)

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 20: Devil Doll!

Before we get to the 1964 film Devil Doll (and yes, I have to specify which one because…well, you didn’t think there could just be one film with that title, did you?) let’s hit a couple other old-time radio favorites, shall...

Curse of the Fly (1965)

32 Days of Halloween X, Day 29: The...

Tonight we begin with a favorite old-time radio show of mine: The Weird Circle. All of these sort of shows had their gimmicks: strange hosts, sound FX, or a zany concept behind the show. For me, I just love the serious intoning of...

32 Days of Halloween X, Day 26: Grizzly!

Some more classic radio for you tonight. We start with Jack Benny’s Halloween program from 1940, then we go straight to Inner Sanctum and their episode from 1945: “Wailing Wall.” It stars Boris Karloff. The scariest part of...
