Boris Karloff’s Thriller (T.V. Series)

0

Being the classic horror fan that I am, I was surprised to hear that Karloff hosted a television series from 1960 to 1962. My boyfriend was browsing the web one night and came across it in a forum. I was actually surprised that my addiction for the show “Thriller” is just as bad as my addiction for “Twilight Zone”! Thriller was a murder/mystery television series that told stories that could actually happen. The stories and events keep you on your feet and wanting you to keep watching the episode. Later on in the series, it became a show that told tales of Gothic Horror.

Each episode starts off with Karloff coming on the scene. He usually gives you a tiny summary to introduce the tale and then introduces the “players” or characters within the story. “I can assure you as I am Boris Karloff, this is a thriller.” Was his tag line while introducing each story. What I love about this the most is that the acting isn’t over done within the episodes. You actually feel like you are in the story itself. It makes me feel like a classy detective doing my work. It also has one element that is missing within today’s movies/television series: Unpredictability! The first few episodes are like a classic “Who done it” mystery. The actors and actresses portray the stories very well, they fit the characters that they were chosen to play.

I give this series 10 Dead Babies!

And those that are horror fans should definitely check it out.

One Step Beyond (T.V. Series Review)

0

Dearest Creeps,

Lately, I have been dwelling in the depths of vintage television series. I must say that I am ashamed at myself for almost forgetting one of my favorite vintage television shows:

This television series was the underdog of the popular television series, The Twilight Zone. The original run of this series was from 1959 – 1961. It’s a shame it only had three seasons because it was much different from the Twilight Zone. This series was introduced by John Newland in each episode. Unlike Twilight Zone which was a series composed of fictional science fiction and horror stories to stimulate your brain, One Step Beyond is a show that re-created REAL cases that have been documented. What I like about the show is that they don’t tell you if the tales are true or false. It’s up to the audience to come to their own conclusion and wonder the wonderful question: “What if…” It’s like a constant cliff hanger that would drive a nerd such as myself to research the cases presented for more information to come to a well thought out conclusion.

I always enjoy shows that are based upon documented cases. It’s good to see this series up on Youtube with a channel dedicated to these marvelous episodes. If you like shows such as Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, The Outer Limits, etc. and are a huge vintage nerd, check out the episode below:

Thanks for wasting time with my existence.
