Who Is Killing the Cast of Laredo?
27 December 2008 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A serial killer is loose in Laredo, which sets Reese (Neville Brand), Chad (Peter Brown), and Capt. Parmalee (Philip Carey) sleuthing. Joe (William Smith) is a suspect, having suffered gambling loses to Harry Lauter (as Spence Gillis), an early victim. A more likely suspect may be John Carradine (as Professor Paracelsus Smythe), who arrives with his "Traveling Museum of Horrors".

Soon, suspicions fall mainly in Irishman Tom Simcox (as Shamus McCloud), in town to meet his dead brother. But, as the bodies pile up, temple-scarred doctor DeForest Kelly (as David Ingram) moves up the suspect list. Could it be beautiful blonde Laraine Stephens (as Barbara Halsey), or couldn't it?

The clue about each murder being accompanied by a strange sound gives the episode its title. The strange sounds, illustrated by a weird special effect, are annoying indeed. This is an unconvincing novelty episode. Soon after this appearance, Mr. Kelly found a "Wagon Train" to the stars ("Star Trek").
