When attending a psychic demonstration by a yogi, Harry Maddox meets an odd fellow with vivid dreams of flying. Carlo Melius is convinced he can employ the power of his mind to break the bounds of gravity. When he's found dead on the street below his studio window, it's Harry who's charged with pushing him to his death. Harry, however, tells a very different story.

Weird and original.
14 November 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

It's odd. The old TV horror anthology series, "Lights Out", is either really, really good or really, really bad. Fortunately, "What Happened" is a really good one.

The show begins with a man plunging to his death from an apartment window. Before the police arrive, the three folks in that apartment are arguing--two want to lie to the police about how the man died and one wants to tell the truth! Why?! Well, when the man tells his lawyer about the death, the lawyer thinks he's crazy and the state is prosecuting HIM for the death! So, eventually he gets his day in court and tells the whole story--and a very strange story involving Hinduism and levitation results! I'd say more but don't want to spoil the show. Let's just say it is VERY original and unusual--and exactly what I like to watch. Well worth your time and downloadable for free at archive.org.
