Conceived during a fog-drenched car ride with nothing beyond the windshield but a horizon-less void, Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid created the acclaimed Tales from Beyond the Pale, audio theater inspired by the vintage radio shows of Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles. Volume 4 features "This Oracle Moon" by filmmaker Jeff Buhler and "Trawler" by Glenn McQuaid. The series is produced by filmmakers Larry Fessenden, Glenn McQuaid, and Lisa Wisely.
In "This Oracle Moon", writer/director Jeff Buhler takes us on a startling journey across the galaxies. A rescue team of astronauts is dispatched to a distant moon in hopes of reclaiming survivors from an ill-fated exploratory mission sent six years prior. When no survivors are found, the rescuers turn their attention to the elusive creatures inhabiting the nearby hills for answers. Starring Ron Perlman and Doug Jones, together for the first time since the Hellboy movies.
In "Trawler", written and directed by Glenn McQuaid, something lurks out there in the salty brine. A bizarre tale of mayhem and menace on the high seas, "Trawler" takes us to the edge of sanity and beyond. Featuring the voice talents of Christopher Denham (Shutter Island, Headspace), A.J. Bowen (The Signal, A Horrible Way to Die, House of the Devil) and Larry Fessenden (Habit, I Sell the Dead).

“Fans of shows from ‘A Prairie Home Companion’ to ‘This American Life’ [who] take their stylistic cues from radio’s glory days should enjoy these macabre R-rated tales.” (The New York Times)
"ONE OF THE YEAR’s TOP 10. The team at Glass Eye Pix and the filmmakers they’ve assembled are very much crafting great little spookfests that remind us why we love horror storytelling in general.” (Fangoria)
