Vincent Price's Once Upon a Midnight Scary | Three chilling tales for the young at heart

Vincent Price’s Once Upon a Midnight Scary (CBS Library/Mystery & Adventure, 1979)

In this made-for-TV Halloween special from 1979, Vincent Price dons cape and cloak to introduce three chilling tales for children: The Ghost Belonged To Me by Richard Peck, Washington Irving’s classic The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (with Rene Auberjonois as Ichabod Crane) and John Bellair’s The House With a Clock in its Walls.

It’s more of a nostalgic piece than classic fare, and I do apologise for the variable quality (it’s been transferred from a VHS), but hopefully it will bring back fond memories to those who remember it the first time round.
