Circle of Fear!?
What happened to Ghost Story!?
Fear not, they’re the same show. Apparently, Ghost Story was struggling in the ratings so William Castle changed up both the show’s format and the title. Ghost Story became Circle of Fear and, sadly, Sebastian Cabot was dumped as the show’s host.
The first episode of the new Circle of Fear era featured Janet Leigh as the wife of a man who loves insects. Unfortunately for him, Leigh hates insects. This, along with an adulterous affair, can only lead to murder and that, of course, can only lead to the moths coming for revenge.
That may sounds silly but let me tell you, I totally agree with Janet Leigh when it comes to moths. If you want to see me run out of a room, just point out that there’s a moth flying around. Agck!
This episode originally aired on January 5th, 1973.
