Thriller: The Complete Series (DVD, 2010, 14-Disc Set)

Movie synopsis

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.

This is a Thriller!

Created: 15/11/10
Alright, I got this for the supernatural/horror stories in the series but I find the murder mysteries & psychological stories are damned good too Its also great to see 'new' talent like Leslie Nielson, Mary Astor & a lot of folks I'm more used to hearing on OTR.

Picture & sound quality are perfect also. Its been a long wait but its well worth it.

Now if only I weren't making myself see the episodes in order because I really want to get to 'Pigeons from Hell'.

Be careful to check the format before purchasing ! Dont buy region one, unless you have a "region free" player. I am a "retro" sort of guy who enjoys b/w 1950s and 60s tv programmes, and watches them every day on my vintage television sets! This isn"t as scarey as modern horror, but is written and acted to a high standard.Some stories are very similar to the b/w Twilight Zones, which most people will have seen.I have watched about 20 episodes and really enjoyed them.Some very good actors including Bill Shatner, Boris Karloff, Mary Astor, Ursula Andress and more!The picture and sound quality is excellent too! You dont need to be a 50s/60s nut like me to enjoy this series!

Some real thrills...some not so much

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

'Thriller', for fans of horror and the supernatural, is a mixed bag. There are some real classics here, 'The Hungry Glass' with William Shatner, 'The Devil's Ticket' with MacDonald Carey and 'Pigeons From Hell' with Brandon De Wilde. Some of the horror stories are hokey and not as successful, while other tales are straight crime dramas, which leaves the great Boris Karloff looking a bit out of place. The series has been beautifully restored, and seeing Ursula Andress and Mary Tyler Moore before their bigger successes is a treat for the eye.
