Hauntings for Halloween


Halloween Hauntings

Spine-tingling shorts of a ghastly nature.


Guest host Kate Burton presents some unusual chillers for Halloween. Edgar Allan Poe is haunted by a childhood memory in Russell Banks’ “The Caul” performed by Richard Masur. Poe’s eerie poem “The Raven” is performed by René Auberjonois, Fionnula Flanagan, Isaiah Sheffer, and Harris Yulin. A dying emperor tries to communicate in “An Imperial Message” by Franz Kafka, performed by Kaneza Schaal. And Agatha Christie tells a ghost story in “The Lamp,” performed by Rita Wolf.
