Ghost Story (aka Circle of Fear)

Search Forums:

Sebastian Cabot hosted this 1972-73 gem with some great guest stars. Unless Columbia/Sony have some plans for this TV classic themselves, it might be a cool title for SF! to check out for a possible release. Judging by the bonus episode on the recent William Castle boxset, and Internet rumors in general, it's been remastered/HD transferred already so it's ready to go... How about it?

CKB, I was just referring to some other Sony news there. Still hope this title will come out to play though, horror/anthology shows are universally and eternally popular after all so why not take advantage of that fact. And it doesn't necessarily have to be around Halloween, for that matter.

RE: Ghost Story (aka Circle of Fear)

I would absolutely LOVE to see this show get a DVD release. I am a GIGANTIC William Castle fan, and the two episodes I saw on the Castle boxset were awesome, to say the least. I hope the September release date is accurate, as I would purchase it in an instant. I do recall reading somewhere (I'm not sure where, but it distinctly is stuck in my brain) that when the 2 episodes were remastered for the DVD release, that the remaining episodes were remastered as well for a future DVD release. If they aren't going to be released by Sony, I would love if Shout! got their hands on this!

           Bowen,

     You say, "there coming in September".  I think you mean this title is due for a September release.  I just checked "tvshowsondvd.com", and they show a release for that month entitled, "Ghost Stories", which I do NOT believe is this 40 year old long lost classic, as the release is stamped with the "Travel Channel" logo.  Just my two cents.  Do you have some other info you can tell us about?
     Also, if Shout were to release this, I would get out my credit card and pre-order it.  I remember bits and pieces of it.  I remember it as being a very atmospheric show.

                                                                                                              Thanks,

                                                                                                                        CKB

Just bumping this thread again, since (A) it's Sony and there's already some other good news there coming in September, and (B) as mentioned it's looking good and available. Doubt seriously, and wish I was wrong, that Sony wants to do anything with it themselves. And we know Shout's ideal for smaller cult titles the majors sometimes almost wish they didn't own (must be when they're just sitting on them), so with Shout's release of other shortlived shows ala Street Hawk in mind, it might be worth it. Horror and TV anthologies always tend to do rather well, all year 'round not only Halloween.
