32 Days of Halloween VII, Day 30: Tormented!


First, we go to the oddly titled radio program from 1944-45, The Strange Dr. Weird. This particular episode, “The House Where Death Lives,” first aired on November 7, 1944. If you’re short on time, at least listen to the first two minutes so you can hear the non sequitur style of throwing sponsorship messages in wherever you can. It’s brilliant.


Next we come to Bert I. Gordon’s Tormented. (Gordon is the man who brought you …well, everything from The Amazing Colossal Man to The Food of the Gods.) A tale of revenge and ghosts, it’s what happens when love and jealousy smack into each other atop a lighthouse. A cautionary tale, in other words. Enjoy.
