Favorite childhood show.
23 August 2004 | by (Two Rivers, WI) – See all my reviews

This show scared the hell out of me, but yet I was compelled to watch it every week. I was only 9 years old when it first ran, and the theme music is about all that is still in my head today !! I do however remember being very disappointed when it only ran two seasons. After reading other comments, some of it came back to me ... People in Mason Jars, the Doll House, and the Rocking Horse episodes. My wife (a year younger than I) does not remember this show, yet she did like watching Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, and others at the time.

We now have three boys (8,10,& 12), and all have always been strangely obsessed with scary movies, Halloween, etc. (go figure). I would love to see this series released on DVD for them to experience, as it is hard to find good scary stuff today that is suitable for young viewers. Most of what is suitable they have already seen ... I.E. Goosebumps, Are You Afraid of the Dark, Twilight Zone, etc. I'm also obviously curious to see this show today from a 40 yr old's perspective !!

What triggered my search for "Ghost Story / Circle of Fear" was seeing an ad in the paper yesterday for "Night Gallery, Season 1" being released on DVD.

I remember watching this show as well, but it did not grab my interest like Ghost Story /Circle of Fear did back then.
