The Stories in the Show:

  • The Ghost Behind the Black Door by Roger Gregg
    A couple from the city moves to a mansion in the countryside only to find that things are not all as they expect… a spoof on the classic horror meme.
  • Leaving You is Hell by Fred Greenhalgh
    A dark retelling of the myth of Orpheus inspired by the classic jazz tune “St James Infirmary.” A man in New Orleans is doomed to keep falling in love with the same woman and seducing her to her death.
  • Bone Lake by Mark LaFlamme
    The ice fishing’s going well on Bone Lake, until a man comes from the winter’s night looking for a very strange catch.
  • Third Shift by Kevin Anderson
    A company will sell you very efficient workers at a bargain price. Just don’t send the living to check out their work.
  • H1NSane by Fred Greenhalgh
    It was all going so well until the zombies showed up. Don’t drink the agave nectar!
