Menacing Visions From The Window - Very Good "The Veil" Episode
"The Veil" is a 1958 TV series which consists of only 10 episodes, and which is hosted by none other than the ultimate Horror-deity, the incomparable Boris Karloff himself. The entire show is highly recommendable to fans of classic Horror for the mere fact that Karloff hosts it, and for the show's high entertainment value. While all episodes are entertaining, they are not all equally good. This eighth episode, "Summer Heat", has the highest rating here on IMDb, and for understandable reasons as it is indeed one of the better episodes of the show. Not the best though, in my opinion - THE Best is still the last episode, "Jack The Ripper", in my opinion, followed by the second episode, "Girl On The Road", which has an immensely creepy atmosphere. This episode has a nice atmosphere too, however, and a good story, which is probably the reason for its high rating. A man watches a murder in the neighboring house from the window of his New York apartment. He immediately informs the police. Upon the cops' arrival, the apartment in which the murder occurred is suddenly empty... The story is certainly one of the most interesting in the series, and the performances are good. Karloff himself has a the role of a psychiatrist. An overall very good episode, which I highly recommend to all Karloff fans.
