Produced, written, and directed by broadcasting legend Arch Oboler - and starring Boris Karloff, Mercedes McCambridge, Dinah Shore, Gloria Blondell, and more - these tales are devilishly devised to keep you up all night!
The screams...the grisly sound effects...the rumbling organ music. Sounds in the dark come strange, mysterious, and terrifying in 21 episodes of such classic series as Lights Out, Inner Sanctum, Suspense, and many more. Spine-chilling tales by Edgar Allan Poe, Guy de Maupassant, Arch Oboler, Robert A. Arthur, David Kogan, and Alonzo Deen Cole dabble in dark realms. Boris Karloff, Maurice Tarplin, Paul McGrath, and Bernard Lenrow deliver pulse-pounding performances.

The villainous vocal skills of Boris Karloff, Mercedes McCambridge, Willard Waterman, Shirley Mitchell, and more bring to life 20 perilous plots. They will tell you strange secrets of the supernatural, of science experiments gone wrong. They will find themselves surrounded by frightening creatures, by ghosts (and ghastly sound effects). They will commit cold-blooded murders that will make your own blood run cold.
Oboler was deeply devoted to the war effort, producing plays of men and women answering the call in spite of everything, and inspiring citizens on the home front to do the same. But, in a frightening world, perhaps he made people brave by poking a bit of fun at fear itself with his terrifying tales of the undoing of misguided souls. This 10-hour tribute featuring performances by James Cagney, Lloyd Bridges, Ingrid Bergman, Peter Lorre, Irene Dunn, Ronald Colman, Dinah Shore, Mary Astor, Olivia De Haviland, Boris Karloff, and more.
