Guest Writer: Before there was Horror Host.

 Before there was Horror Host.

By Bobby  Gammonster

 Before the "Horror Host" trend started up , before Vampira or Zacherley, television began the horror tales with a show called "Suspense" These vintage 30-minute tales of mystery and suspense from the classic anthology series feature numerous Hollywood and Broadway legends in episodes that originally aired live on television from 1949-54. Guest stars include Bela Lugosi, Lloyd Bridges, Paul Newman, Jack Lemmon, Charlton Heston, Boris Karloff, Anne Bancroft, Cloris Leachman, Hume Cronyn, Walter Matthau and many others.Making way for later shows like Thriller with Boris Karloff and Alfred Hitchcock tales. Found now at Netflix , take a trip back in time and enjoy a time when acting was the catch of the audience and not fancy effects.
