The Stories in the Show:
- The Ghost Behind the Black Door by Roger Gregg
A couple from the city moves to a mansion in the countryside only to find that things are not all as they expect… a spoof on the classic horror meme.
- Leaving You is Hell by Fred Greenhalgh
A dark retelling of the myth of Orpheus inspired by the classic jazz tune “St James Infirmary.” A man in New Orleans is doomed to keep falling in love with the same woman and seducing her to her death.
- Bone Lake by Mark LaFlamme
The ice fishing’s going well on Bone Lake, until a man comes from the winter’s night looking for a very strange catch.
- Third Shift by Kevin Anderson
A company will sell you very efficient workers at a bargain price. Just don’t send the living to check out their work.
- H1NSane by Fred Greenhalgh
It was all going so well until the zombies showed up. Don’t drink the agave nectar!
