Ghost Stories is an American horror anthology television series that ran from 1997 to 1998 on the cable channel FOX Family.

Contents

The show was narrated by Rip Torn and originally two episodes were presented back to back in an hour-long segment. However, towards the end of the series it was broken down into 30 minute episodes with just one story, most featuring a style similar to episodes of The Twilight Zone in which there would be a twist at the end.

There have been five DVD releases and is currently being shown in the United Kingdom on the TV channel Zone Horror.

Episodes

Each episode begins with an introduction segment narrated by Rip Torn (viewable in QuickTime or in Windows Media):

Come with me to a place of wondrous contradictions. A place that is silent and unstirring yet restless and alive. A place of untold peace and boundless dread. Come with me into the very cradle of darkness, where those who dwell, dwell alone.

Once complete, it goes directly into the episode where Rip Torn introduces the episode. During the episode's conclusion, Rip Torn comments on what was seen (usually in some form of a moral).
