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.
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.
Fonceville Curse: The female descendants of the long-dead Baron de Fonceville are victims of a murderous curse.
Will-o'-the-Wisp: A murderous spirit protects a secluded island from greedy developers.
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: "Curtain Call," "Cat's Cradle," "Fonceville Curse," and "Will-o'-the-Wisp."
