A comic book based upon this series, "Boris Karloff's Tales of Mystery", which was also 'hosted' by Karloff, ran from 1962 to 1980 - more than a decade after the real Karloff had passed away. See more »
"Thriller" was a fantastic black & white TV series hosted by Boris Karloff that did adaptions of classic weird tales such as Robert Bloch's "Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper" & Robert E. Howard's "Pigeons From Hell"- In that story, the inhabitants of a southern plantation (that utilized slaves from the west indies), all disappear. Many years later--in a hair-raising moment that has to stand as one of literature's & television's greatest scares--it's revealed that one of the daughters was turned into a "zuvumbie" by one of the West Indian slaves. She slaughters whoever comes to the deserted old plantation by burying a hatchet in their brain!
