An all-star cast - consisting of Richard Ferrone, Mark Hammer, Frank Muller, Spencer Tull, and Patrick Tull - take on the supernatural with their eerie performances on the audio collection Spooky, Mysterious Tales. The first story is the macabre monologue “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, as interpreted by Ferrone, who does the narrative justice with his thrillingly sinister delivery. There are also unsettling stories of the first rank by Oscar Wilde, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ambrose Bierce, and Saki.

Okay

Found this okay, a couple of stories worth listening too but overall found it a bit boring and kept losing the plot a bit! Easy to be distracted and had to keep skipping back!

Spooky and effective

Some of the dark tales are better than others but there's not a dud amongst them. Could probably have done with a few more thrown in.
