Storyline

An elderly stage mentalist makes no pretense that his clairvoyant act is purely for entertainment. But one night he is seized with a vision of a death in the boxing ring. He sends the father of his beautiful stage assistant to warn the manager of the ill-fated boxer, but the bounder makes a bet on his prediction instead and wins big. The whole thing has everyone in the theater spooked. Meanwhile, the mentalist has other visions of death and especially fears for the safety of his assistant, who wants to get married and leave town. Her skeptical fiancé thinks the old man has greedy motives for delivering a dire warning about a twisted road sign, but his predictions are all proving horribly true. Written by J. Spurlin

So-so script but Karloff is excellent
13 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Karloff plays a phony mentalist called Clayton Mace. He has a young female assistant named Norine (Audrey Dalton) who loves him like a father. The act is good but all of the sudden he is seeing future events that become real. The problem is all those events are of people dying. He can't control it and he starts to go crazy. Norine wants to help him but how? Also her handsome boyfriend Grant (Alexander Davion) is pushing her to leave Mace and run away with him.

The first all-out horror entry in the "Thriller" TV series. The script is OK and the production is a little thread-bare but it has Karloff in it and that's all that matters! He takes the script and gives it his all and he's just great. It helps that the rest of the cast was good also (especially Dalton) and match him. It has a tragic but inevitable ending. Well worth seeing for Karloff alone.
