Fear on Four

Tales of terror introduced by the Man in Black
from archive.org

An unsettling collection of full-cast dramas from the long-running BBC Radio 4 horror series, a revival of the earlier "Appointment with Fear".

Throughout five series between 1988-1997, Edward de Souza was The Man in Black, a sinister raconteur who introduced a weekly half hour of terror and suspense. Here, he welcomes us to his house of horrors as he presents terrifying tales that will make your flesh crawl.

Including stories by Dennis Wheatley, J C W Brooks, Bert Coules, John Wyndham, W W Jacobs, Martyn Wade, William Fryer Harvey, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Stephen Gallagher, Guy Jenkin, Edgar Allan Poe, Ramsey Campbell, Stephen Dunstone, William Ingram, Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley, Peter StrauB, Ray Bradbury, Robert Bloch and Stephen Wyatt.

With eerie sound effects that enhance the atmosphere of dread, these bloodcurdling adaptations run the gamut from the mysterious to the macabre. With superb casts including Imelda Staunton, Bernard Cribbins, Anna Massey, Thora Hird and Sean Barret.
