Saturday Frights – Night Gallery (1969)

Welcome back all of you film fiends to another installment of Saturday Frights! For tonight’s offering we have a dandy, a diabolical display of sheer classic terror storytelling from none other than Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling! We’ve talked about Night Gallery on the site once or twice before and for good reason, it was a wonderful anthology show that brought you some of greatest 70s stars and pitted them against the macabre each week.

This week we have the movie that started it all! The TV movie that was so popular they actually re-released it as a movie in theaters and Drive-In’s. Which is where I saw it for the first time. In the three offerings tonight you will see the likes of Roddy McDowall, Ossie Davis, Joan Crawford, Richard Kiley, Tom Bosley, George Macready, and Barry Sullivan.

As always I want to give a big thanks to the talented Sean Hartter for that excellent header you see up top!

Now grab your favorite beverage, pop some corn, and snuggle up to you favorite Boil or Ghoul and enjoy Saturday Frights!

    I find it interesting that in the late 60s-early 70s, Roddy McDowell played a lot of arrogant, hippie/hipster-type characters that were supposed to be in their mid-late 20’s, even thought he was already 40.
