Flashback Friday – Inner Sanctum “The Deadly Dummy”

Halloween is fast approaching, friends. It’s time to step up the fear factor a few notches.

It started with a creaking door, some creepy organ music, and a host with a morbid sense of humor who went on to inspire movie horror hosts everywhere.

Inner Sanctum ran from 1941 to 1952. 526 episodes were broadcast over that time, but sadly, only about 200 have survived. It was the longest running, and best, horror show on radio.

Please enjoy the following episode of Inner Sanctum.
