Pit and the Pendulum...
Great narrator, always a good dark read.
At first I saw the movie from the 60's on TCM then I went here and found the audio. This is a wonderful and disturbing story that is a great mystery in its own way.
Narrator has the perfect deep voice for this story. The slight echo effect - as if he were down in a pit - also helps with the chilling effect. Very well done.
