    They're baaaaaaaaaaaaacckkkkk!!! Rocky Coast Radio Theatre returns with yet another copious cornucopia of classic concoctions, crafted and compiled for the captive congregation (gotta love that thesaurus!). Nightmares on Congress Street, Part V offers dramatized adaptations (complete with music and sound effects) of chilling stories penned by Edgar Allan Poe, Hugh B. Cave, and H.P. Lovecraft, as well as a few additional treats.

    This production proved to be well worth the price. I have always been a fan of audio drama. This collection of short radio plays are fun, spooky and perfect little tales for anyone who is a fan of horror fiction. The adaptations were thoughtful and well done. I place a high value on original material and while the original material is does not disappoint, there could be more of it. I would like to see the full series of Nightmares available, instead of just parts IV and V. Not only are they gems, the price is just right!

    Get ready for more than four hours of eerie literature. This collection includes The Charnel God, The Black Abbot of Puthuum, The Isle of the Torturers, and The Weaver in the Vault.

    Overall

    This is a fantastic selection. This is pulp fiction at it's finest and all the more enjoyable because Smith's work is hard to find in print. These tales are exactly what any fan of Conan or Solomon Kane will enjoy. I found the performance nuanced and intimate. I found the sound effects moody and the music, while not perfect was suitable for the material. The whole book walks a razor's edge, risking a deep fall into being over produced. I think it avoids that fate and succeeds marvelously.

    Nightmares on Congress Street is a chilling compilation of classic and original tales presented in audio theatre format, complete with music and sound effects. Pieces include the well-known "The Monkey's Paw" and "The Cask of Amontillado", as well as those penned specially for this production, such as "The Cabin in the Woods" by Clay Graybeal and "The Horror of Walker Point" by Anthony Marino.

    Overall

    Nightmares on Congress St. Pt. IV. is a wonderful production of classic horror tales adapted as radio dramas by a first class audio theater troupe. The writing ranges from good to very good. The adaptations of The Monkey's Paw and the Cask of Amontillado will please any fans of the original stories. The real pleasure of this collection is "The Horror of Walker Point." It is a live performance and meant to be any homage to Orson Welles and George Romero. It is entertaining, well done and thoroughly enjoyable. I recommend this to anybody who likes horror stories or anyone who likes old time radio dramas. This will not disappoint.
