In 2001 a group of Portland, ME area theatrical professionals began creating 'Nightmares on Congress Street', a radio broadcast of horror stories and satire for broadcast on Maine Public Radio on Halloween Eve. Now in it's fourth year (hence 'Part IV'), Nightmares has become something of a tradition all over the state of Maine and this year includes an original piece, written specifically for this show. Dedicated to Maine's own Stephen King, this year's show is sure to become a classic. Featuring: The Monkey's Paw by W.W. Jacobs The Cremation of Sam McGee by Robert W.

From AudioFile:

The classics stand out among these pieces broadcast on Maine Public Radio's fourth Halloween program, especially "The Monkey's Paw," here both horrifying and sad. Poe's "Cask of Amontillado" is chilling, if overacted in places. New piece "The Cabin in the Woods" is scary, but it and a long "it's really happening" broadcast about flesh-eating zombies are unconvincing even as fiction. Humor is best served by "The Cremation of Sam Magee." Sound effects and music are atmospheric, even frightening; introductions by a cackling host recall "Tales from the Crypt." The acting overall is good, though overreactions and forced chatter in group scenes seem amateurish. This is a mixed effort, with one excellent piece.
