The series was released to the public for the first time in the late 1990s. In 1968, footage from the episodes were edited into the following TV movies: Destination Nightmare (1968) (TV), Jack the Ripper (1968) (TV), and Veil, The (1968) (TV). See more »
Available complete on dvd, with magnificent picture and sound quality. This quite old anthology tv series of nine episodes plus an extra borrowed from British tv, is quite watchable. The acting styles are a little wooden, but there are some interesting early appearances- Robert Hardy, Patrick MacNee, Harry Bartell and so on.
Supposedly based upon real reports of paranormal reports this certainly predates the X Files. The approach is pure drama with no explanations.
A good addition to any classic tv collection - although it never was shown on tv.
