"Tales from Beyond the Pale" Audio Program horror series

Larry Fessenden's Glass Eye Pix is launching a new genre audio program entitled "Tales from Beyond the Pale" is music to my ears!
audio theater inspired by the vintage radio shows of Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre, Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles.
Hosted by Larry Fessenden, each thirty-minute episode will transport the listener through sharp scripting and finely honed performances from actors familiar and new to the Glass Eye Pix stable. Also distinguishing these audio plays will be a concentration on the landscape of sound and music that can be taken for granted in the visual medium of film.
"TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE" will delve into the twisted minds of new and established horror auteurs to present singular stories of the uncanny; stories that will chill and delight fans of the macabre.
Says Fessenden:
“Glenn and I wanted to celebrate the written word and the power of sound design in approaching this project. We also found if you cut out cameras and lights, you can tell stories a lot cheaper.” Says McQuaid: “As filmmakers embarking on this project, we are letting go of our visual tricks — the imagery is suggested, not seen, and so the listener gets to paint their own picture, it's interactive.”

There is an audio-only horror film H.P. Lovecraft's 'The Dunwich Horror' that is premiering at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on June 23.
audio-only horror film

It is an old medium [audio-only drama] but some great sci-fi/fantasy works have come from it like
"Star Wars: A New Hope" NPR radio serial 1981 .

Even recently Shatner plans to do audio dramas of his Tek War series.

I'm all for it. Don't underestimate the power of your imagination to visualize something.

How about try playing a science fiction movie DVD and pipe the audio through the stereo. turn off the TV itself. Listen to the movie in a darkened room and just visualize it.
Then watch it a 2nd time within a few days and see if your imagination was better...
