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

First episode to feature Karloff
1 May 2009 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Prediction," the tenth episode of THRILLER, became the only first season entry to feature host Boris Karloff in an acting role. As phony stage mentalist Clayton Mace, Karloff begins to have real flashes of tragic events for others before they happen, but cannot foresee his own fate. Playing Mace's assistant, Audrey Dalton would reappear in two future episodes ("Hay-Fork and Bill Hook" and "The Hollow Watcher"), again working with Karloff six years later in an episode of The Wild Wild West ("The Night of the Golden Cobra"). Abraham Sofaer has a sympathetic role as Mace's manager (and a less sympathetic one in "The Weird Tailor"). Actor Alan Caillou would also reappear twice more("Hay-Fork and Bill Hook" and "The Specialists"), while also scripting a pair ("H-F and B H" and "The Terror in Teakwood"). Director John Brahm does what he can with a script that comes off as more a crime entry than horror. Brahm had already helmed "The Watcher," going on to do some of THRILLER's best remembered shows.
