Come with me to a place of wondrous contradictions. A place that is silent and unstirring yet is restless and alive. A place of untold peace and boundless dread. Come with me into the very cradle of darkness where those who dwell, dwell alone!

Good stuff! A lost gem.
Probably deserves a high 7 but I'm giving it a 10. Because I can! I picked up this 1990's horror anthology on DVD a week ago and am way into it. I've been on it like Oprah on a baked ham! It's widely available on Youtube with a little searching if you want to save a few bucks.
Some pretty well wrought and thought-provoking tales here. The writing is generally very good, with top-notch camera work & high production values all around. Better looking show than "Tales From The Darkside", which I also love. This series has, to me, more in common with the Amicus portmanteau moralistic lesson horror films of the 60's & 70's than say the overproduced & brain-dead "Tales From The Crypt" or the utterly awful "Freddy's Nightmares". Ghost Stories is peopled with actors I've mostly never seen anywhere else, but who are obviously well-trained and give there all. I did see a young Stuart from "The Big Bang Theory" playing a horror obsessed video clerk in "It's Only A Movie". So there you go! :) But yeah, I highly recommend this. Other than "Night Visions" hosted by Henry Rollins, I can't think of a modern horror anthology series that's nearly as good.
