Horror / Sci-Fi / Thriller (1959) 97 minutes ~ Black & White
Lights Out was an early television series based on eerie dramatizations of the radio broadcasts of the 1930s. The broadcasts made writer and director Arch Oboler a household name synonymous with the macabre. It was brought to network television between 1949 and 1952. A precursor to shows like The Twilight Zone, Night Gallery and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Lights Out is a chilling remnant of old-fashioned ghost story-telling.
