Reminded me of "One Step Beyond".
9 March 2005 | by (Mansfield, CT USA) – See all my reviews

Destination Nightmare, is a series of four short films hosted by Boris Karloff. He also plays roles in each of them. From what I learned when researching this film, the individual sequences were meant to be episodes for a proposed TV series that was never sold. The episodes weren't meant to be horror movies but series of supernatural stories based on supposed real life occurrences. They were meant to make you wonder and perhaps give you a little chill down the back of your neck. It reminded me of the successful TV series "One Step Beyond". Where did this series fail when "One Step Beyond" succeeded? The films in Destination Nightmare just didn't have the atmosphere to give them that spooky feeling. They lacked the dramatic effects that the plots and music had in "One Step Beyond". I think Destination Nightmare had potential but they needed just a little bit more, which these episodes just didn't have. Viewing Destination Nightmare is still somewhat entertaining and is fun to see a bit of late 50s nostalgia. It's nothing to go out of your way to view but nothing to turn your back on either.
