"I like this series even though it tends to be a bit simple and low budget. Most previous and current DVD releases are all under the title "The Veil" and for some reason? they have retitled it which muddies the waters on what it is. It sounds like this release may have a slight amount of additional material but I am not sure. Just type in the search box - "The Veil" and you will see the other releases of the smae material. - Steve"
Karloff completists & fans should check this out

"I think these are all a series of really cool supernatural stories, starring & hosted by Boris Karloff. He always plays something in each tale. These are fun to watch when you are in the mood to watch some low budget supernatural made for TV stories. I like the gritty black and white photography as it has a certain feel that color cant match. The 2 dvds are in this really cool tin. I think Karloff completists would want this and fans of Karloff should give this a try. It is inexpensive so why not.
If you liked Karloff's worst films, you'll have a good time watching these back to back with some popcorn and an unlit room."

"Karloff is a very good actor. This set shows his talent, and he's not always the 'bad' guy."
A must-have for Karloff fans

"Not a lot to say about this series. The stories are predictable and pedestrian, but the casts are game and give good performances (many well-known character actors pop up frequently.) The directing is competent and the production values surprisingly good. The most fun is watching old pro Karloff mug his way through most of the episodes, sporting an amazing variety of wigs! "A" for effort, and the quality of the picture and sound is amazing. If you are a Karloff fan, you will want this for your collection. If you are a fan of the paranormal genre, it's not a bad addition to your library at this price, but it ain't no "One Step Beyond," believe me."
