Lights-Out-Volume-6

Horror / Sci-Fi-Thriller  (1949) 104 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.

Curtain Call: A famous actor suffers a breakdown on stage when the voice of his dead wife cries out to him from the grave.

Cat’s Cradle: A man plays “cat’s cradle” with a loop of string he believes to be cursed. He claims he can kill any creature by twisting the string into a knotted representation of them.

Will-o’-the-Wisp: A murderous spirit protects a secluded island from greedy developers.
