Overview

Nine years before his death, screen icon Boris Karloff (Frankenstein) turned up for two seasons on NBC, as host of the horror anthology series Thriller (1960-62). The program, which strategically ran after the same network's Alfred Hitchcock Presents and therefore lassoed much of the same audience, bore a similar structure: individual playlets usually involved seemingly unremarkable characters dropped into the middle of terrifying situations. Thriller made fervent use of actors who, though little-known at the time, attained stardom in subsequent years - thesps including Leslie Nielsen, William Shatner, Mary Tyler Moore, Tom Poston and Cloris Leachman. This fourteen-disc set from Image Entertainment contains the full and complete series as it originally aired, with over fifty hours of special features, including: 27 new audio commentaries featuring cast, crew and various experts on the horror genre; episode promos; a series promo; isolated music scores; and production and promotional still galleries.

    shipping took awhile

    Be careful if you are ordering this as a gift. The order went through on Nov 18 and it did not ship until Nov 23. Oh well, I guess they will have to get it in time for Christmas instead of their birthday. So much for expedited shipping...and usually ships within 24 hours...it looks lie fun.
