For tonight’s televised horror, we have another episode of the Boris Karloff-hosted anthology series, Thriller!
Like many of the Thriller episodes that we’ve shared this month, this episode deals with an inheritance and a possibly haunted house. Ellis Corbett (John Newland, who also directed) promises his uncle that, after his uncle’s death, Ellis will never leave the family mansion and that he will always check to make sure that the crypt has not been disturbed. The uncle promptly kills himself and Ellis soon discovers just why exactly he cannot leave the mansion.
This atmospheric episode features a script by Richard Matheson and a frightening performance from Reggie Nalder, who is best known for his roles in both The Man Who Knew Too Much and Salem’s Lot!
