Description by OLDIES.com:
"Lights Out" was an early television series based on the eerie dramatizations of the popular 1930s radio show. 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 "Twilight Zone," "Night Gallery" and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," "Lights Out" is a chilling remnant of old-fashioned ghost story-telling.
Beware This Woman: A poltergeist plagues a helpless woman who happens to share a cursed name with a seventeenth century witch.
Gray Reminder: A widower receives regular mail from his domineering - and long dead - former wife, much to the dismay of his new bride.
The Devil in Glencairn: A bagpiper strikes an unholy bargain with the devil to settle a long-standing debt with his miserly landlord.
The Upstairs Floor: After his beloved wife dies, a tormented man tries to rebuild his life - down to the last detail - with devastating results.
Years before THE TWILIGHT ZONE debuted, this creepy anthology series brought chills to viewers with its tales of menacing ghosts, deadly curses, and horrific secrets. This collection presents four episodes: "Beware This Woman," "Gray Reminder," "The Devil in Glencairn," and "The Upstairs Floor."
