Anthology series focusing on the supernatural. Winston Essex opened each episode by taking the audience into his spooky old mansion and introducing the plot, which could range from a vampire preying on college students to a ghost haunting a house to an old man using voodoo against his own family. On January 5, 1973, the series changed its title to "Circle of Fear", the Essex character was no longer part of the show, and the stories didn't always feature supernatural themes Written by
Would like to see these episodes air again. It is long over due.
I very much enjoyed watching Circle of Fear. Being only 7 at the time, there was one episode that has stayed with me to date. Thanks to the episode "Dark Vengeance" I still have a small fear of wooden toy horses. The "scary" stuff on TV today does not compare with the horror shows of 70's such as Circle of Fear. I would be overjoyed if copies of these episodes were avaible for purchase.
