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 5 features two episodes from the first season, including "Johnny Boy" by JT Petty and "The Demon Huntsman" by Ashley Thorpe. Produced by Larry Fessenden, Glenn McQuaid, and Lisa Wisely.
Terror on the baby monitor! "Johnny Boy", written and directed by JT Petty, takes us from the streets of New Orleans to a baby’s nursery in this frightening tale about the anxieties of parenthood. Featuring Amy Seimetz (Bitter Feast, A Horrible Way to Die), Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire, Splinter), and including Bill Weeden of Troma’s Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD.
In "The Demon Huntsman", written by Ashley Thorpe, Lord Capel returns to his ancestral manor to reclaim his title. En route, he sees a black stag, the capture of which becomes an obsession. But the stag is merely a lure to draw victims out upon the moor, and Lord Capel, in his haste to gamble the lives of those around him in its pursuit, will instead find himself cutting cards with the Devil.

"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)
These stories are really hit or miss. I didn't like these stories to much. They seem kinda corny and weren't really scary or even weird. I liked some of the other beyond the pale takes but this wasn't to good at all.
