Haunting series I've never forgotten
17 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was but a lad of 9 years when this series was broadcast. The individual episodes were uneven in quality, but the best (including "Number 13," "The Wendigo" and "Mr. Arcularis") gave me delightful nightmares. They were live broadcasts and at their best had a stark, riveting quality. The source materials included classic stories by Poe, Algernon Blackwood and other masters of horror. In fact, I was introduced to dark fantasy literature through TV shows like this and "Thriller." It would be great if someone could issue these on DVD or video, because their subtlety would be a revelation and an object lesson for those viewers used to the overly-explicit horror of recent decades.
