"These two seperate stories come from Boris Karloff's 10 episode series "THE VEIL" which was filmed for TV.These are two of the better episodes~~The first story revolves around a strange girl & an even stranger man (Karloff) who,well...you'll have to watch the show!Episode two concerns a fellow who witnesses a murder from his window...or does he? Karloff again plays a role.Great tape! Great fun!"
No thrills or chills to be found here.

"PLEASE NOTE: This is in regards to the DVD, which contains 4 TV episodes as opposed to 2 for the VHS version.It's easy to see why this never became a successful show, even with Boris Karloff attached to it."Destination Nightmare" is actually a collection of four TV episodes of about 25 minutes apiece. The writers apparently had very little creativity when compared to such classics as "Twilight Zone" or "Amazing Stories".The first episode is about a teenage girl who goes to visit her mother's childhood home. When she gets there, she is overcome with the spirit of a girl who had died ten years earlier. This is the best out of the four, but that really isn't saying much.The second episode is about a young man who sees a ghost while he is flying a plane. The ghost tries to make him crash.The third episode is too similar to the first. A young Indian woman has been reincarnated and she remembers her past life. She shocks people by knowing things that only her previous incarnation could possibly know. The fact that white people are trying to portray Hindu Indians adds to the tackiness.The final episode is kind of hard to explain because it is so utterly illogical. In general, a gentleman encounters a young blonde woman having car trouble. He senses that she is in some sort of imminent danger. I won't spoil the "twist" for you but it makes everything that occurred earlier in the episode lack any sense whatsoever.If these stories were the best that they could come up with at the start, then I would hate to see what they would've come up with if the show was around for a while."

"Only in case these late 50s (it should be 1958 instead 1968 as listed above) TV-episodes can evoke some personal memories in you, is this DVD worth viewing. Unfortunately I have to describe it, together with some other DVDs from this lot, incredibly boring. Looks poor Boris was in bad need of money, he looks so uninspired. The technical quality of these DVD-s are nothing much to boust about as well. So, don't expect anything but nostalgia here. No nightmares, no destination."
