Atmosperic Fourth "The Veil" Episode

"The Veil" 1958 is a series that sounds like the show of a Classic Horror fan's dreams: None other than the great Boris Karloff narrates mysterious stories about the 'unexplainable, which lies behind the veil' in 10 episodes. And "The Veil" is a treat for lovers of classic spookiness indeed. The episodes do differ in quality, of course, some of them ("The Ripper", "Summer Heat") are creepy and atmospheric, others ("Genesis") are quite cheesy, but the entire series is very entertaining. This fourth episode, "The Doctors" is a very atmospheric one. Yet, it is not among the best episodes of the series. The story revolves around Dr. Carlo Marcabienti (Kaloff), a country doctor whom the people of a remote Italian village rely on, and his son Angelo, who is also a doctor. In a stormy night, both father and son have to get out in order to help the sick of the village... This episode delivers a nice little story and a nice atmosphere, and yet I somehow had the feeling they could have made more out of it. This could have been a lot better with some more time than 25 minutes, or if the 25 minutes had been used slightly more effectively. Still, this is a moody and more than worthwhile episode to the series. Recommended.
