"The Weird Circle" was an anthology of classic thrillers from the pens of the world's best-known and respected fiction authors of the 19th Century. The focus was horror and suspense stories by Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson and Mary Shelley (among others) with the occasional drama by Emily Bronte, Charles Dickens and George Eliot. "The Weird Circle" was produced in New York by NBC and offered in syndication. The narrator of "The Weird Circle" sat in a cave by a restless sea and instructed a bell keeper to "toll the bell so all may know that we are gathered again in the weird circle for another strange and weird story from out of the past." Casts included New York's steady pool of busy supporting actors including: Lawson Zerbe, Eleanor Audley, Jackson Beck, Mason Adams, Raymond Edward Johnson and Arnold Moss.

I love these tongue in cheek jaunty Hollywood creeps shows.
Don't make them like this any more. With these, you never know which subject is going to used. Imagination is what these are about.
Frankenstein & Vampire have been done to death in modern era.
I love listening to these types of shows in the winter, dark dull days. Perfect when curled up all nice and safe and warm ;)
