I recall watching "Inner Sanctum" as a kid...I was nine or ten. I would sit in front of the TV in a chair with my hands over my eyes so that I wouldn't see the scariest scenes. I would take only occasional peeks through the gaps between my fingers. The creaking door intro to each episode and the accompanying funereal narration, including organ music, were truly terrifying. I knew watching this show would cause nightmares, but I was inexplicably drawn to it. I don't remember the storyline for any of the episodes, but I still think this series was one of the most frightening on '50s black-and-white TV.
