Anthology series focusing on the supernatural. Winston Essex opened each episode by taking the audience into his spooky old mansion and introducing the plot, which could range from a vampire preying on college students to a ghost haunting a house to an old man using voodoo against his own family. On January 5, 1973, the series changed its title to "Circle of Fear", the Essex character was no longer part of the show, and the stories didn't always feature supernatural themesWritten by
Executive-produced by William Castle, Ghost Story initially featured supernatural entities such as ghosts, vampires, and witches. By mid-season, low ratings led to a title change and a shift--for the most part--away from paranormal themes. See more »
The pilot episode for Ghost Story/Circle of Fear was titled "The New House" and was the story of a young couple who purchased a house over the site where an innocent girl was hanged. To this day, I remember vividly how everyone in my family was scared to death as the ghost of this girl terrorized the wife, who was pregnant with her first child. It was definitely one of the best scary TV movies, and it is a shame now that it is missing. The end of this movie was so terrifying that I remember we turned on "The Odd Couple" when the movie was over so we could relax and laugh some. The fact that I can still remember this movie so well so many years later is a testament to just how scary it was. I hope one day it can be located again.
