The devil you say
10 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a child, I watched Thriller mainly to see the legendary Boris Karloff introduce each episode. The episodes themselves were like little plays and adult-oriented, so I was less interested in the show itself. As n adult, I am watching episodes on youtube, and appreciating them for what they are. Some are crime stories and some are supernatural in nature. All episodes star one or two name actors of the era. This creepy episode features MacDonald Carey as a starving artist who makes a deal with the Devil (John Emery). It is fairly easy to guess where it is headed, but there is a novel twist at the very last minute that was harder to predict. The captivating Patricia Medina plays Carey's mistress. Robert Bloch wrote both the story and teleplay. I must say Emery hams it up beautifully as the Devil.
