Destination: Classic Spooky Fun
6 October 2008 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

"The Veil" (1958) is a 10-episode TV series hosted by none other than the great Horror icon Boris Karloff. Karloff narrates a (supposedly fact-based) mysterious story about the 'supernatural, which lies behind the veil' in each of the episodes, which, of course makes it highly interesting to my fellow fans of Classic Horror. While the entire series is highly entertaining, the individual episodes are not all equally good. Some episodes, such as "Jack The Ripper", "Summer Heat" or "Girl on the Road", are eerie and great little tales that deliver everything that is possible in a time-span of only 25 minutes, while others, such as "Genesis" are quite cheesy and purely camp fun. This seventh episode "Destination Nightmare" is not one of the best in the series, and yet it was one of the two (along with the last and best episode, "Jack The Ripper"), which were also turned into (TV) movies in the same year. An aspiring pilot is frightened when he has a paranormal occurrence while flying... This entertaining episode has some very interesting scenes. Karloff himself plays the main protagonist's father, the owner of an aviation company. Not one of the best episodes of the show, in my opinion, and yet recommended to my fellow Karloff-fans.
