Decent Opener To "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. (For more detail, see my review on the complete series). As far as I am considered, the episodes differ in quality quite a bit, some of them, such as "Jack The Ripper" or "Summer Heat" were excellent, while others, such as "Genesis" or "The Return Of Madame Vernoy" are rather silly, but they are entirely entertaining. "Vision Of Crime" is the first to the series, and while the story is not exactly highly original or fascinating it is a nice opener to the series. While on a boat-trip to France, a British man has a vision of his brother being killed. He returns to England immediately, but has to find out that he is too late, as the murder has already taken place... This first episode is not one of the best in the series, and yet it is highly entertaining. As in all episodes but one, Karloff himself has a role (aditionally to being the host), and he is great as always. Other than Karloff, he performances are not exactly stunning, but they are good enough, and everybody fits well in their roles. Recommended!
