Never-Aired Mini-Series.
16 October 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Boris Karloff hosted(and sometimes acted in) this ten-episode series that dealt with ghosts and psychic phenomenon. Never aired because the studio went bankrupt, this is still an entertaining series, due to the talent Of Boris Karloff, an acting legend. Episodes included titles like: 'Vision Of Crime', 'Girl On The Road', Food On The Table', 'The Doctors', 'The Crystal Ball', 'Genesis', Destination Nightmare', 'Summer Heat', 'The Return Of Madame Verney', & 'Jack The Ripper'.(the best of the bunch). Often overlooked by "Thriller", also hosted by Karloff, this can also be compared to "One Step Beyond", and can be viewed on DVD. Worth seeking out for fans of Boris Karloff.
