Anthology series hosted by Boris Karloff that originally told ordinary tales of crime and mystery, but later became a showcase for gothic horror stories, many of which were based on works by authors such as Cornell Woolrich, Robert Bloch and Charlotte
Episode 02: Child’s Play
While on a family vacation in the mountains, a neglected boy’s overactive imagination leads him to take his father’s rifle in search of the fantasy highwayman Black Bart and to hold a fisherman at gunpoint.
This hour-long anthology series was hosted by Boris Karloff, who each week brought you a tale of spine-tingling suspense. Karloff would open each episode with a brief onscreen appearance (in the tradition of “Alfred Hitchcock… Presents”), setting the scene for the story to follow and introducing us to the cast.
Occasionally the hour was divided into two or sometimes even three separate tales, and Boris Karloff himself acted in several episodes. The earlier entries lean more towards straight mystery and suspense, while later shows deal directly with horror and the occult.
