Thriller

1960, TV Show

An anthology series hosted by Boris Karloff that began with typical crime stories, but later delved more successfully into the horror genre. At its best, it was truly eerie and chilling, telling tales from such masters as Robert Bloch, Cornell Woolrich and Richard Matheson. In `Danse Macabre,' Stephen King called this `the best horror series ever put on TV.'
