Anthology series focusing on the supernatural. Winston Essex opened each episode by taking the audience into his spooky old mansion and introducing the plot, which could range from a vampire preying on college students to a ghost haunting a house to an old man using voodoo against his own family. On January 5, 1973, the series changed its title to "Circle of Fear", the Essex character was no longer part of the show, and the stories didn't always feature supernatural themesWritten by
I loved this too! I was a KID when it first aired, but have always been haunted by the images in that "Concrete Captain" episode. Truly creepy. I just found out the name of the series yesterday - I couldn't remember it for the last 32 years - and it brings back memories. I remember Jodie Foster in one, with an old actor whom I cannot remember; and another episode where there's something moving around in the well in the cellar of a house. Great stuff. They just don't show this stuff on TV anymore; episodic TV like this is thought not to work, and the 70's allowed for more downbeat endings that didn't necessarily need to be ironic. Wish someone would give us a scary series again soon. BUFFY was neat, but not scary.
Oh, yeah - I always thought Sebastian Cabot was perfectly cast. He was quite creepy! Loved him as Satan in THE EVIL.
