Good underrated TV horror anthology series...
25 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was a little to young in the seventies to remember this TV series and even as a kid I was never really into horror movies or TV, But I have come to appreciate them as I've grown older. I started researching horror TV shows on the web and came across this series. It seems that everyone remembers the more popular horror TV series such as Thriller, Night Gallery, Twilight Zone, and The Outer Limits. All great in there own right. But it intrigued me to see some of the episodes of Ghost Story/Circle of Fear since it only ran a season way back in 1972 to 1973 to see if it was any good. So I typed it up on EBAY and low and behold there were episodes for sell. Well I took the opportunity to buy some, four episodes of the TV series and to my surprise they were great. I only have eight episodes total so far of the series run, 23 in all but the episodes that I do recommend that I have are "Elegy for a Vampire", "Time of Terror", "The Dead We Leave Behind", "The Summer House", "Dark Vengeance", and "The Phantom of Hearld Square". It really surprised me how well some episodes were and the guest stars that they got for the series are great Jason Robards, Stuart Whitman, Jodie Foster, Hal Linden, Mike Farrell, Martin Sheen to name just a few. Robert Bloch wrote one of the episodes and the series has a great horror atmosphere. I truly recommend this series to anyone if you love 1970's horror TV.
