Image Entertainment's 14-disc presentation of the acclaimed anthology series Thriller is arguably among the most anticipated DVD releases for horror fans and vintage-TV aficionados alike. Hosted by screen legend Boris Karloff, who also appeared in five episodes of the series, and aired on NBC from 1960 to 1962, Thriller immediately earned a reputation as one of the most frightening programs ever broadcast on television--a legacy that endures some four decades after it left the airwaves. Though it featured an all-star lineup both in front of and behind the camera--actors such as William Shatner, Richard Chamberlain, Rip Torn, Leslie Nielsen, Elizabeth Montgomery, Warren Oates, Robert Vaughn, and Marlo Thomas were among its guest stars, while directors included veterans like John Brahm (The Lodger), John Newland (One Step Beyond), and actor-directors Ida Lupino, Paul Henreid, and Ray Milland--the chills of Thriller hinged on its stories. Psycho author Robert Bloch adapted several of his short tales for the series, including one of its most nerve-jangling episodes, "The Cheaters," about a pair of glasses that reveal terrifying truths to the wearer. Twilight Zone scribes Richard Matheson and Charles Beaumont also contributed scripts, while others were based on stories by Cornell Woolrich, Edgar Allan Poe, and Conan creator Robert E. Howard; the latter provided the source material for "Pigeons from Hell," the episode widely regarded as the most terrifying of the series, with Brandon De Wilde as a young man who encounters restless spirits and a unique monster in an abandoned Southern mansion. Other standouts include Bloch's "The Grim Reaper," about a cursed portrait that brings death to its owners (including Shatner); "The Purple Room," with Torn as the skeptical inheritor of a haunted house, which viewers will immediately recognize as the Bates home from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho; and "La Strega," with Ursula Andress as a young woman bedeviled by her sorceress aunt.

The 14-disc Thriller: The Complete Series offers all 67 episodes of the series, each remastered and uncut for the first time since their original broadcast. Some 50 hours of supplemental features have also been included; chief among these are 24 hours of commentary tracks by Thriller participants like directors Arthur Hiller and Ted Post and actors Richard Anderson and Beverly Washburn (Spider Baby), as well as genre experts like Tim Lucas, David Schow, Gary Gerani, and Lucy Chase Williams. Episode promos and isolated score tracks by composers Jerry Goldsmith (The Omen) and Morton Stevens all help to underscore why no less an authority than Stephen King declared Thriller to be the best series of its type to ever air on television. --Paul Gaita

EXCELLENT DVD SERIES. PERFECT RESTORED PICTURE AND SOUND QUALITY. SLIM LINE PACKAGING TAKES UP LITTLE SHELF SPACE. LOTS OF EXTRAS INCLUDED WITH EACH EPISODE. WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR DISCERNING MYSTERY VIEWERS.

Will probably only appeal to those who remember watching the original series on TV. Some really good spooky ones and some so-so. Quality varies but pretty good. My favourite is "A Wig for Miss Devore". It spooked me when I was kid and its still pretty good. If you're nostalgic for the old Black & White horror/sci-fi like Twilight Zone and Outer Limits you definitely want to add this one to your collection.

A true classic thriller/horror TV series, somewhat Twilight Zone meets One Step Beyond with a bit of Universal horror movies thrown in for good measure.

Excellent quality video and audio, great transfers, with a lot of extras, especially of the nature that serious fans of the show will enjoy and appreciate, this DVD set is about exactly what a fan of this or any other show would want in a DVD complete set of their show.

First rate and highly recommended, the guest cast is unending with a view of many up and coming TV stars before they were famous with Elizabeth Montgomery a very good example, here she was supernatural in Masquerade before there was a Samantha.
