Traditional ghost story, no surprises. I had thought that the throwaway line about the stablehand being a retired physicist was foreshadowing a revelation of hologram use, but it was a ghost (or mental aberration) after all. Ghost story, questioned (and unbelieved) supernatural phenomena.


Great ghost story about a girl who killed herself on a horse riding accident after her boyfriend proposed to another (rich) girl. It's worth listening to it to the very end for some very dramatic screaming and yelling.


Decent ghost story. Worth the time to listen.


A girl named Emily has never been happier. She has her majestic horse Spartacus and thinks she's about to become engaged to the man she loves. Only he has a surprise for her when he announces that he'll be marrying her rich stepsister instead. Death, a haunting and just desserts follow. Really solid episode.


A standard ghost story but notable for a noteworthy performance by Mason Adams.


A young whose love is spurned, dies and haunts her lover. Witty dialogue and a decent script (Mason Adams stars). The witty script save this one from parody.


Revenge visas VI a horse, but it really doesn’t work.

Dee Ramon

A Lothario is tormented by the ghost of a woman he used who later died in a horse riding accident.

M. Montano

Some of the acting is a little over the top, but the story is good.

Justin Ralph

Ayoung girl's ability to communicate and relate to horses is exceptional and when a man toys with her affections while really pursuing her older sister the animal seeks revenge on her behalf.

Judy B.

Mediocre ghost story.

Ace O Heart

It was an okay story, but if the rich girl has been engaged that many times, you'd think she wouldn't be with this guy at all from the way he acts.


There's way too much screaming and neighing in this episode, and even though Mason Adams is strong, it's a pedestrian listen. Just okay.


Standard ghost story but worth a listen.

Mystery Theater is pure entertainment. I listened to it as a young girl and am sharing it with my own children. Use your imagination and expand your mind. I love all the episodes.


Emily seemed like a sweet girl before she died, but something about the way she acts as a ghost seems sinister to me. Listening to this story more closely, I get the sense that Emily is actually not very sweet at all. She acts all innocent, but I suspect that she really knows exactly what she is doing when she drives Frank crazy by haunting him. She also tries to kill him on purpose. I am not sure if she wanted revenge or if she just wanted him to be with her. Either way, she is definitely a more interesting character than she appears on the surface, lol!
