'Tales From Beyond the Pale': Larry Fessenden introduces an excerpt from his creepy radio play, 'The Hole Digger' -- EXCLUSIVE

Hole Digger

As a form of mass entertainment, the once-mighty radio play seems to have gone the way of the Charleston dance and movies starring Yahoo Serious. But that hasn’t stopped horror-loving writer-directors Larry Fessenden (The Last Winter) and Glenn McQuaid (I Sell The Dead) from creating a series of spooky “radio plays for the digital age” under the banner of Tales From Beyond the Pale.

The pair debuted these yarns – which feature the vocal talents of Vincent D’Onofrio, Ron Perlman, and James LeGros amongst others – on the TFBTP website and are now releasing them on a series of CDs and as a 5-disc box set.

To mark that release – and to celebrate the scariest day of the year – we asked Fessenden to introduce an excerpt from his self-penned yarn, “The Hole Digger.” Please do gather around ye olde computer and give it a listen, after the jump.

Happy Halloween!
