Lesser Episode From Behind The Veil
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. The individual episodes are not all equally good, however. They are all entertaining, but while some episodes, such as "Jack The Ripper" (the last and best episode) are excellent and eerie, some others, such as this one, are merely cheesy fun. This lesser "The Veil" episode, "The Return Of Madame Vernoy" has the topic of re-incarnation. In 1927, Sita Vernoy, a young Indian woman, died, leaving behind her French husband and a son. Santha Naidu, a beautiful young woman born a year after Sita's death, in 1928, has remembered details from Sita's life from her early childhood... The reincarnation subject was an obvious subject for a show like "The Veil" which revolves around the paranormal. As far as I am concerned, they could have made a bit more of it, as this is clearly one of the least interesting episodes of the series. It is nonetheless entertaining however. Karloff himself plays a small role again. Trivia fans may also be interested to hear that actor George Hamilton played his first adult role in this episode. Overall, "The Return Of Madame Vernoy" is one of the lesser episodes of the series. Yet it is worth watching - Boris Karloff is always good enough a reason to watch something, and this will only take 25 minutes of your time.
