|The popular horror anthology was hosted by Boris Karloff, and ran on NBC from 1960-1962. This complete set includes 67 episodes on a 14 DVD set. Includes over 50 hours of bonus content.|
Nine years before his death, screen icon Boris Karloff (FRANKENSTEIN) turned up for two seasons on NBC, as host of the horror anthology series THRILLER (1960-62). The program, which strategically ran after the same network's ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS and therefore lassoed much of the same audience, bore a similar structure: individual playlets usually involved seemingly unremarkable characters dropped into the middle of terrifying situations. THRILLER made fervent use of actors who, though little-known at the time, attained stardom in subsequent years - thesps including Leslie Nielsen, William Shatner, Mary Tyler Moore, Tom Poston and Cloris Leachman. This fourteen-disc set from Image Entertainment contains the full and complete series as it originally aired, with over fifty hours of special features, including: 27 new audio commentaries featuring cast, crew and various experts on the horror genre; episode promos; a series promo; isolated music scores; and production and promotional still galleries.
