Publisher's Summary

Conceived during a fog-drenched car ride with nothing beyond the windshield but a horizon-less void, Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid created the acclaimed Tales from Beyond the Pale, audio theater inspired by the vintage radio shows of Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles.

The series is produced by filmmakers Larry Fessenden, Glenn McQuaid, and Lisa Wisely.

In "The Grandfather," a perfectly ordinary Grandfather feeds his perfectly ordinary cat, waiting for his perfectly happy family to arrive for a perfectly pleasant afternoon… until an unfortunate revelation puts them all on a tragic path, if the Grandfather can’t unravel their perfect mess first. From Graham Reznick, director of I Can See You and the 3D short The Viewer, as well as the sound designer on a half a dozen Glass Eye Pix films, comes this startling tale starring the venerable Angus Scrimm in the titular role.

Story was all over the place

I felt like I was dumped into the middle of an odd movie. This story started out rather promising, and then ended up just going into the supernatural realm with absolutely no reasoning or backstory. The ending had no closure, and there was no attempt to explain the history of the family.

I appreciated the grandfather's voice acting, but the rest of the story was extremely disappointing.
