Trivia

Like the episode "Destination Nightmare," Boris Karloff plays host in an office setting, rather than before a great fireplace. Both were completed in 1959, and became the last to be filmed before production permanently shut down due to lack of funds. The shows never aired at the time because there were only 11 episodes, but by the early '70s, three features were compiled from the series, 4 entries apiece ("Summer Heat" appeared twice). Even series creator Frank P. Bibas discovered this quite by accident at 3:00 AM one night, all done without his knowledge. Till the end of his life, Karloff claimed never to have been paid, although director Herbert L. Strock refuted this. See more »

So-so final episode
25 January 2011 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

This short-lived anthology series ends with more of a whimper than a bang with this strictly middling last episode. Teenage girl Ruth (a sweet and appealing performance by the cute Denise Alexander) is possessed by the tormented soul of another deceased young girl named Peggy. The kindly Dr. Gar Madison (well played by ever-reliable veteran character actor Whit Bissell) sends Ruth to live with Peggy's parents in order to resolve the situation. This particular show is treated more like a mawkish domestic drama than a horror story -- and that's exactly the problem: There's zero tension or atmosphere to speak of; instead we get a good deal of dull talk and maudlin sentiment. The bland direction and blah script don't help matters any. Only at the very end does the strangely insipid story manage anything in the way of punch and impact. Fortunately, the solid acting from a capable cast keeps things afloat, with praiseworthy work by Shirley Mitchell as Ruth's concerned mother and Boris Karloff and Olive Blakeney as Peggy's puzzled parents. The crisp black and white cinematography boasts a few neat and elegant dissolves. A merely okay closer for this show.
