The Veil - Part 1

Please choose a format above.

In 1958, Hal Roach – the man behind Laurel and Hardy's greatest comedies – decided to make a horror anthology series starring Boris Karloff. That series then remained in a vault for the next thirty years, because it was exactly as good as you think it was.

Now, RiffTrax Presents is somewhat proud to bring you three of those episodes, all of them with basically the same moral: that women are bad news, and you're best steering clear of them.

See the guy from All Creatures Great and Small witness a premonition of his brother's murder, skilfully edited to remove the important detail that his own fiancée did it. See a creepy lounge lizard become improbably obsessed with a woman he almost runs over while driving at speed. And see Boris Karloff himself as a salty old sea dog who carries venomous snakes in his luggage while the rest of us pack suntan oil and a John Grisham paperback.

The Veil... Be warned, there's more of it.
