Synopses & Reviews
Fear and loathing in Lake Wobegon? You betcha.
Garrison Keillor's Horrors! is a grab bag of treats from Halloween broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion. Horrors! features eclectic musical performances, commercials for loyal Prairie Home "sponsors" like Guy's Shoes, and lighthearted comedy from A Prairie Home Companion's cast of regulars.
Halloween is a time when everyone's a kid again--perhaps that's why it's so eagerly celebrated by adults. Listen to Horrors! and you'll smile, you'll shiver, and you might even take a peek to see what's lurking in the shadows.
