Two Encounters/ The Second More Imaginative
3 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are two stories here, both of them featuring Boris Karloff, in addition to his usual host position. In the first, a less impressive offering, he plays a man who has worked at the morgue for many years and has developed a way of talking to the corpses. One night a notorious gangster is brought in and Karloff manages to connect with him. Unfortunately, a police officer and his camera man come in, trying to get the morgue attendant to tell things about the murder of this man. It leads to unsettling consequences. In the second story, a tough guy and his wife show up at a house near New Orleans. He grew up in this house and knows that there is money that was promised him after his brother's death. Living in the house is a weird couple, his uncle and aunt, who tell the couple that they are both dead, but that it's nice to see them. They are confused but need the money. The guy is wanted for murder and needs the cash so they can hide. We learn about a lot of doing involving a crypt with family members who have been inadvertently buried alive. I won't say more, other than to say that this second offering has much more suspense and a plot that is very creative.
