For tonight’s excursion into the world of televised horror, here is the 6th episode of the 2nd season of Thriller!
Introduced by Boris Karloff, Masquerade tells the story of a married couple (Elizabeth Montgomery and Tom Poston) who find themselves checking into a creepy boarding house. If the house looks familiar, that’s because it’s the same house that was used in Psycho!
The house is occupied by a family of cannibals. And who plays the patriarch of this dangerous clan? The always wonderful, theatrical, and intimidating John Carradine!
And, of course, there’s a fun little twist at the end!
This episode originally aired on the day before Halloween, October 30th, 1961.
