Lights Out: THE DEVIL IN GLENCAIRN {TV; Short} (Laurence Schwab, Jr., 1951) **1/2
2 November 2013 | by Bunuel1976See all my reviews

By pure chance, I followed DARK OF THE MOON (1957; TV) with this similar effort about dark forces threatening the life of a tradition-bound community, in this case Scotland. The hero is a prime bagpipe player (Richard Carlson) but an impoverished one, who cannot afford to pay the rent due his unforgiving laird. An impish diabolical presence turns up to help him but, when he reappears before the master with his bag of money, the latter expires before having signed a receipt...so that, as soon as his successor arrives, he demands double the amount owed his estate! The devil persuades Carlson to go to Hell and retrieve an acknowledgment of his past payment from the former landowner – which, if not accepted by his heir, Carlson is to forfeit his soul! Of course, things go exactly the way we expect them under the circumstances, and soon the netherworld minion resurfaces to collect...but Carlson picks up his bagpipes and takes to playing the Lord's Hymn, which naturally drives away the evil influence (which disappears in the proverbial puff of smoke)! The film, inspired by a Sir Walter Scott original, is an entertaining little item – making "Lights Out" another series to watch from the early days of TV, along with the likes of "Climax!", "Suspense" and "Tales Of Tomorrow" that I had already sampled over the years...
