Eerie Second "The Veil" Episode

As a great fan of Classic Horror, I was immediately highly interested in "The Veil", a 1958 TV series of 10 episodes, when I stumbled upon it, mainly since this highly entertaining show was hosted by none other than the great Boris Karloff. A mysterious story about the 'unexplainable, which lies behind the veil' is narrated in each episode. The episodes differ in quality, but they are entirely entertaining. (For more information, read my review of the complete series). This second episode, "Girl On The Road" is one of the eeriest and best in the series, mainly because it maintains a remarkably gloomy atmosphere from the beginning to the end. A man sees a beautiful young woman whose car has broken down, and is determined to help her... I will not give away more, but I can assure that this episode is more than worth a look. It has an amazingly uncanny atmosphere, which sometimes reminded me of Horror Classics such as Herk Harvey's 1962 masterpiece "Carnival Of Souls". Karloff himself has a great role, and the rest of the performances are good too. Overall, this is one of the best and creepiest episodes of the series, and highly recommendable to my fellow Classic Horror buffs.
