I bought this set over the weekend for both myself and a second set for a friend as a late x-mas gift. I sat down to watch it Saturday night, having not seen most of these stories for a long time, in some cases a decade or longer. What a frightning few hours that was! IMO, most of these stories are far scarier than alot of the big budget horror films Hollywood puts out these days! What contributes greatly to the effectiveness of these stories is Robert Stack's appropriately dry and seriously toned introductions and narrarations of each episode. Anyway, I know that Halloween is ten months away, but if your in the mood to be seriously creeped out, pick up this set, it's sure to please, and in some cases, depending on your sensitivity level, deprive you of sleep. I may pick up Unsolved Mysteries: UFO's this weekend, those are freaky as well to me.
