The package says "Classic Radio Sci-Fi," but this show was produced long after the golden age of radio drama. It was made in 1977, and in high-fidelity stereo. Vincent Price, by then a dean of horror and science fiction drama, was in fine form. Author Holmes was a veteran of the British TV series "Doctor Who." The drama centers on an investigation into the mysterious and violent death of a scientist on a remote Scottish island by his friends Doctors Curtis Lark (Price) and John Cornelius (Cushing). With a pack of mutant zombies thrown in, the stage is set for drama. The well-crafted script is delivered with crisp precision by the excellent cast, thus making the nearly three hours pass quickly.
