As a kid my friends and I would have sleep overs during our summer breaks out in one of our backyards and we almost was would bring out the trusty transitter radio and fumble around some late night OTR offering. The absolute best luck was when we would find The Inner Sanctum Mysteries, Suspense, Light's Out, The Shadow, The Whistler or CBS Radio Mystery Theater. These shows would thrill and spook us and we loved it!!!
So here are my favorite Top 10 Sci-Fi/ Horror episodes of all time...The could really go in any order because they are all amazing....
10) The House on Cypress Canyon from Suspense- A couple buys a new house and encounters something terrifying.
9) The Cold Equation from X-minus One- A woman stows away on a spaceship with deadly circumstances.
8) Revolt of the Worms from Lights Out- (A great example of sound effects genius!) Science gone wrong!
7) Northern Lights from Quiet, Please- Science gone wrong again but this time at the north pole.
6) Donovan's Brain from Suspense-Starring the Amazing Orson Welles in a twist on Frankenstein.
5) The Martian Death March from Dimension X-Is this a social commentary or Sci-Fi?
4) Whence Came You? from Quiet, Please- Just listen you won't be disappointed!
3) Oxychloride X from Lights Out- Arch Obler classic showing his knack for Sci-Fi.
2) Zero Hour from Dimension X or Suspense-I love this show!!! The kids are playing a new game but why?
1) The All-Time best shocker is The Thing on the Fourble Board from Quiet, Please- I remember the first time I listen to this...I sat with my mouth open for minutes after!!! So well done...Classic...Listen to at night but not alone!!!
