Sebastian Cabot originally hosted this thriller/horror anthology series. As Winston Essex, he welcomed the audience to his stately manor, Essex House, where he'd introduce that week's story. As the tale unfolded, it would take an unexpected turn towards the macabre. Starting with the Janury 5, 1973 episode, the narrator was dropped and the title was changed to Circle of Fear.
