Spooktober: Shadows (1975)

In 1975, Thames Television of England introduced a horror anthology series geared for children. As was the practice of the time, however, each series, or, season, of Shadows was kept rather short. Three series were produced between 1975 and 1978, totaling 19 episodes. As a result, it isn't on a par with the adult-themed horror anthologies of the past, such as Rod Serling's Twilight Zone or Night Gallery, or even later adaptations of R. L. Stine's Goosebumps and The Haunting Hour.

Shadows made its only appearance in the US during the Thames on 9 promotion on WOR in New York in 1976, with three episodes broadcast. The opening episode, "The Future Ghost", might've been one of them.

Good way to start Spooktober, don't you think? No rating.
