Joan Crawford hosts this feature compiled from the Hammer TV series
JOURNEY TO THE UNKNOWN was an American TV series produced by Britain's Hammer Films, lasting only 17 episodes which may explain why 8 of them were compiled into four ersatz feature films exclusively for television syndication, this title of the same name (hosted by Hollywood legend Joan Crawford), plus Patrick McGoohan's "Journey into Darkness," Sebastian Cabot's "Journey to Midnight," and "Journey to Murder" (again hosted by Crawford). First up is "Matakitas is Coming," one of the very best episodes, starring Vera Miles as a librarian doing research on an executed strangler (Leon Lissek) who continues his murder spree from beyond the grave. Sadly, bringing up the rear is "The Last Visitor," a predictable Hitchcock ripoff with Patty Duke as a young woman recovering from a nervous breakdown at a seaside resort where someone appears to be stalking her. It's a little depressing to see Joan Crawford hosting both "Journey to the Unknown" and "Journey to Murder," as they are among her final on screen appearances, requiring little of her besides reading cue cards.
