Halloween Hauntings

Spine-tingling shorts of a ghastly nature.

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.
