In my honest opinion, this is one of the scariest, if not thee scariest shows they ever did. The cozy New York apartment, the Austrian cottage, the flattened tires, the 2 shadows, the snow, winds, the frightened Betty Spraig, etc. I love this episode. Back in the day, I had it on tape, and listened to it over and over and over. I dragged my mother and grandmother into my bedroom to listen to it. They got hooked on it. Listen to this one with the lights off, with a friend, and be prepared to have nightmares. Awesome story!

I have to agree, this is one of the best I have heard and now one of my favorites. Loved the atmosphere and even though I "could see it coming" there was a good deal of suspense.

Ghost Grey Bat is my favorite.

The Ghost Gray Bat was the scariest for me.

I live in west Texas at the base of the panhandle. It gets COLD here. It was winter. There was snow on the ground, and the air was a bitter chill. For some reason we had trouble with our gas heaters. So,l i rolled an ancient, portable electric heater into my bedroom. I grabbed my mother and animals, threw blankets on the floor, threw my mother on the floor (she wanted to be down there with her 2 dogs), and we listened to The Ghost Gray Bat, all settled and comfortable. We used to do that in the 80s, in Los Angeles when I had it on cassette tape.
