    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.
