SUSPENSE—Episode 7: The Graveyard Rats
Updated: Feb 3
By John C. Alsedek:
When we do adaptations, some end up being very close to the original while others go quite far afield. But "The Graveyard Rats"? Well, the original Henry Kuttner story had one character and no dialogue, which is probably not ideal for radio! But Kuttner’s idea was so bone-chilling that it was a pleasure to flesh it out. Definitely not a good one to listen to if you have a fear of rats!
