Similar in format to Serling's much more famous "Twilight Zone" series. Each week we get a new tale, represented by a painting in an old museum. Whereas the tales in "Twilight Zone" were more science fiction, these tales have a darker, more horrific edge.Written by
Rod Serling pitched the idea of his being a curator for a wax museum, where by he would introduce the stories via the museum exhibits. No TV network showed any interest, so Rod Serling made a few changes to his pitch. See more »
Good evening, and welcome to a private showing of three paintings, displayed here for the first time. Each is a collectors' item in its own way - not because of any special artistic quality, but because each captures on a canvas, and suspends in time and space, a frozen moment of a nightmare.

Major changes were made to most episodes for syndication. The 60-minute episodes were edited down to 30 minute packages, with major edits to some of the 30-40 minute segments of the original shows. In cases of segments that were only 15-20 minutes in length, these were padded out by adding stock footage, newly shot scenes, and footage from Hollywood movies such as Silent Running and Fahrenheit 451. Most musical cues were also replaced for syndication. In order to augment "Night Gallery"'s syndicated run, episodes of The Sixth Sense were edited down to 30 minutes, had new introductions by Rod Serling tacked on, and were added to the syndicated run of "Night Gallery."

Rod Serling made a name for himself with his stunning series the Twilight Zone, after it ended, he came up with this follow up series. It was more of horror and supernatural than of sci-fi like the Twilight Zone was, but it still is a masterpiece, but there were a few funny moments, like the ones with vampires or Dracula. But the rest were either shocking, surprising or spooky! My favorite is the one about the undertaker who acts kind, and another is the one about the drug addict who goes to Hell. These stories also have a point or sometimes a lesson in it, or shows some dark karma, or in other words, it shows bad people getting a dark comeuppance. It's like a serious version of Tales From The Crypt, or perhaps maybe a forerunner to it. Recommended to all Twilight Zone fans, or fans of horror. Excellent work Mr. Serling!
