Bombastic.
6 November 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Lights Out" is a very early horror anthology series from television that preceded shows like "The Twilight Zone" by over a decade. A few of the shows are available for free download at archive.org. However, most are fair at best--and "The Veil" would be among these. If you do try downloading any, try starting with "Dead Man's Coat"--now that's a good one!

This episode stars a very capable actor, Lee J. Cobb. However, while Cobb could be great in shows like "Death of a Salesman" and the film "12 Angry Men", Cobb proved with "The Veil" that he could also be quite bad. His powerful acting style often worked well--here it just seems bombastic and silly. He stars as a power-hungry prosecutor who wants to one day be governor. However, his fiancée is in the way--so he has her killed!! However, the afterlife doesn't think this is fair and they return, with her, to prosecute this evil man. Subtlety might have made this idea work--but there's barely a hint of it in this one...
