Baris Karloff's Thriller was one of the great anthology series of the 1960's. This was also the show that made me look at the credits. More specifically, it made check the credits on each episode to check for Robert Bloch's name; if I saw his name, I knew it would be an episode I would love. Turns out there were a lot of names on the credits I would continue to look for.
John Scolari and Peter Enfantino have been going through the series episode by episode in their A Thriller a Day blog. Here's where they trash my pick for this week's Overlooked Video:
Ok. So it wasn't as great as Pigeons from Hell. The thing is that I am an uber fan of August Derleth's writings -- yes, even his lesser works. I also bow to no one in my esteem of Richard Matheson -- and, yes, even his L. Frank Baum movie. So, combine this with one of my favorite television programs of all time...well, I have never denied that I can be a gibbering fanboy.
