Between Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Night Gallery.
3 November 2004 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

Just saw all 10 black and white episodes of The Veil, just out on Platinum Disc Corp (2004) double DVD set. I don't know why the company apologies on each DVD for the picture and sound quality -- both are perfect. The Veil was never shown on TV due to, as the text on the box states, studio financial problems. It's too bad. The production values, acting, and stories are at the level of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Night Gallery. Each "spine-tingling" story deals with the paranormal, many based on real facts; messages from beyond the grave, psychic premonitions, supernatural phenomena, and surprise endings! In each episode we get to see veteran actor/host Boris Karloff in a range of roles, including a doctor, lawyer, even chief of police. The Veil does not suffer from "monster of the week" plots, which were the boom and bust of The Outer Limits and The X-Files. No unexpected explosions, no car chases, no chainsaws either. In fact, The Veil is a good example of writing for TV, albeit in 30-minute format.
