On tonight’s episode of The Veil, a writer (Booth Colman) is heartbroken when his lover, Marie (Roxane Berard) leaves him so that she can marry his boss (played by Leo Penn, father of Sean). To help soften the blow, Marie gives the writer a parting gift, an ornamental crystal ball. However, it doesn’t turn out to be much of a gift because the only thing that the writer can see in the ball are visions of Marie cheating on her husband! Boris Karloff both hosts and plays the role of the writer’s uncle.
This is one of the lesser episodes of The Veil but it still has its entertaining moments, largely due to the performances of Roxane Berard and, of course, Boris Karloff. I guess my main problem with this episode is that it doesn’t so much end as it just stops. I was waiting for one big twist but …. oh well! Listen, it’s got Boris Karloff in it and you should always watch as much Karloff as possible in October!
