good stories

(5 Sterne)

the inquiry below 'havent got a face' is heard here in 'valse triste' at the end. if they did do stories like this these days, they wouldnt be of this quality. the plots, screenwriting and delivery is amazing. gosh i love the visual cues given by the dialogue sometimes its so clever and naturally. tough gig pulling it off. appreciate all the work involved in turning out these episodes and every show similar. great skill. thanks for collecting preserving and sharing these gems that mustnt be lost to time. too much same ol garbage that saturates our lives for real stories to be lost.

Man Oh Man

To think I almost missed this little gem, for shame! This is an awesome collection in and of itself, Lights Out rocks!

Why I'm a fan of old radio shows .

(5 Sterne)

I really enjoy the old acting radio shows . It's like the minds eye is opened to envision a thought and to formulate a place or a time . Through the actors tone of voice and objects used to resemble action for creative sound effects. The writing of script is sometimes most impressive . To me it's like painting a picture while some one else is guiding the brush . All a person has to do is follow the story and enjoy the scenery .

... actually turn out your lights. It really does open the mind!! Just 1 guy's opinion but here in alphabetical order are a list of 11 candidates for the most memorable Lights Out episodes: "Bathysphere" - Geo. Zucco, Hans Conried underwater cat & mouse "Cat Wife" - Karloff's performance earns its reputation as best ever "Chicken Heart" - the signature show, sheer audacity & imagination "The Dark" - another masterpiece, most horrific of all perhaps "Mungahra" - A+ vocal switch on HGW's "Pollock & the Porroh Man" "Murder Castle" - another, very creepy Oboler milestone "Oxychloride X" - outstanding science fiction premise "Poltergeist" - excellent acting & moody, compelling story "The Projective Mr. Drogan" - unique plot & character "Revolt of the Worms" - the ultimate skin-crawler ""Ugliest Man in the World" - rightly famous, great ending Too many runners-up to mention!! Mention YOUR favorites!!

Best show otr horror

Pretty much top of the heap

"Chicken Heart" and "The Dark"

(4 Sterne)

these two files are not from the original radio run, rather they are recreations from the "Drop Dead" album Arch Oboler put out on Capitol Records in the early 1960s. I'd love to hear the original radio shows when they're found. A great recreation of "Chicken Heart", based on the original script, was done by the Gotham Radio Players a number of years ago. BTW, the "Drop Dead" album is worth searching out, as it also contains "A Day At The Dentist", which is one of the scariest under three minute stories ever done, with an eerie turn by Harold Peary.

I've been getting into this over the last few days

I have a question: I stumbled upon a clip on YouTube that someone recorded in the static between AM stations and couldn't figure out what it was. I'd link it here but I'm not sure if that's allowed. Would anybody happen to know of an episode where a man says to a woman (who seems to be struggling) "I'm about to tell you my dear. I had a little accident. Look closely now. I haven't got a face"?

Can't remember episode name

(5 Sterne)

When I was a kid, I listened to Lights Out and Suspense and others and there was one episode that terrified me about a woman who found a corpse in her living room that later disappeared (was hidden under the couch?). The terror in her voice was surreal and it has stayed with me since. Does anyone know the episode I'm referring to? Or even which series it was? I've been trying to track it down with no luck :-/
