Publisher's Summary

Twenty tales of terror and suspense, brought to you by sinister storyteller Vincent Price.

Horror legend Vincent Price presents an anthology of eerie, unsettling tales with a devilish twist - some purportedly based on his own adventures, others narrated by him in his own inimitable style.

Listen to his horrifying accounts of an unnerving piscatorial experience down under, a violinist with very special hands, a Bonfire Night party when a bullying father disappeared and a secretary's murderous revenge. Here, too, are the spine-chilling stories of a beloved cat with an unusual inheritance, a scientist whose experiments on his own son lead to unforeseen danger and a phoney clairvoyant and her client, who seeks a preview of eternity....

Among the star casts are Garard Green, Peter Cushing, Bill Kerr, Coral Browne, Christopher Bidmead, Adrienne Corri, Betty Huntley-Wright, Freddie Jones, Edward Woodward, Annette Crosbie, Maurice Denham and Hywel Bennett.

pure cozy spooky bliss

love the fantastically silly framing device, where Vincent Price has to pretend these are all things that really happened to him as he's just roaming the Earth being a fancy spooky guy.

Magnificent!

Superb. Simply superb. I had been hoping that the BBC would issue this complete collection on CD (previously only publishing four tales on CD). Anyways, here they are - eerie, chilling and spine-tingling. It makes no difference how many times I listen, I still flinch, wince and squirm. A Radio Hammer House of Horrors! 👻😱 Enjoy!

Worth it for Vincent

Just love that actors voice - but the stories are at best, quaint! Nothing really scary but an easy listen and short enough not to be tedious.

Classic atmospheric old stuff, superb.

Easy on the ear narration, stories for dark nights in a warm dark room, great entertainment.
