Storyline

Similar in format to Serling's much more famous "Twilight Zone" series. Each week we get a new tale, represented by a painting in an old museum. Whereas the tales in "Twilight Zone" were more science fiction, these tales have a darker, more horrific edge. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Alternate Versions

Major changes were made to most episodes for syndication. The 60-minute episodes were edited down to 30 minute packages, with major edits to some of the 30-40 minute segments of the original shows. In cases of segments that were only 15-20 minutes in length, these were padded out by adding stock footage, newly shot scenes, and footage from Hollywood movies such as Silent Running and Fahrenheit 451. Most musical cues were also replaced for syndication. In order to augment "Night Gallery"'s syndicated run, episodes of The Sixth Sense were edited down to 30 minutes, had new introductions by Rod Serling tacked on, and were added to the syndicated run of "Night Gallery."

User Reviews

It's creepy and it's kooky, some are mysterious and ooky...
26 April 2001 | by numberone_1See all my reviews

For those who enjoy psychological thrillers and who have never seen "Night Gallery" - find them and watch them. This show was on television when I was only six, yet I can still remember how utterly spooky, horrifying and terrorizing some of the vignettes were. Granted, not all of them were great (some were a bit silly), but there were ones that I would still find chilling today. Some gems include Joan Crawford and Tom Bosley in one story about eyes, Roddy McDowall as a spoiled heir to a large fortune, and Agnes Moorehead, Rachel Roberts and Grayson Hall with the shadows on the wall. I could go on and on...you can also find information about the series at www.nightgallery.net. And -- some of the paintings done for the vignettes are downright creepy! All in all a great series, and it's a shame it didn't last longer.
