Seeing so many 5-star ratings, this reviewer is reminded of the Los Angeles area movie critic some years back on TV who, with a 10-star-maximum rating system, rated so many average movies highly that he had no room left when something better came along, hence resorting to superlatives like "10-plus stars" or even "11 stars." In a 5-star-maximum rating context, 3.5 stars seem reasonable for this package: These episodes have mostly pretty good plots with excellent acting throughout, though in this much screen-time one must expect an occasional plot-hole.

These ten 61-to-67 minute episodes (totaling about 655 minutes, plus 2-3 minutes of Clemons' introduction for each episode) are each divided into three 20+ minute parts (DVD chapters) separated by breaks (e.g. "End of Part 1" ... "Part 2"...):

1. Lady Killer - 3 stars; A marriage set-up and murder-for-money scam, with a Hitchcock-ian twist.

2. Possession - 3 stars; Creepy old mansion; bodies in the basement; psychotic finger-snapping, whistling murderer; and a medium with supernatural powers.

3. Someone at the Top of the Stairs - 3 stars; An apartment "too good to be true;" two "marvelous" and "pretty, pretty girls"; steepled index fingers; and supernatural, satanic evil.

4. An Echo of Theresa - 2.5 stars; Mind-altering dual-personality deja-vu ghosts are triggered by the London Times and 20-year-old espionage activities. The ending is marred by Dinsdale Landen's (as Mathew "Earp") over-the-top melodramatics, ending an interesting episode with a farce. Re-edited into 1973 British TV movie "Anatomy of Terror." Minor sound glitches occur at 33 minutes.

I have not seen this DVD set, but I thought I would inform everyone since the listing details are minimal, that this is the English television series Thriller that came out in the early 70's, and not the Karloff Thriller that came out in the early 60's.

This series was known in the US as ABC Wide World of Mystery! I used to stay up late at night as a young teenager, often with my older teenage sisters and their friends, who would bake brownies, pop popcorn, and generally sit around being scared and watching with the lights out! THere are some real gems in this series! I hope that the REST of this series gets released in the USA, because the whole thing was released in Britain as a complete series set! Hoepfully, we don't get a one shot release here!

Some of the ones from the later years were real gems, like Carol Lynley in "If It's A Man, Hang Up!" released in England as an extended cut release!

So where is the REST of this set?!!

If you have never seen any of these, I urge you to buy them and watch. You will NOT be disappointed!

I recall watching this show when i was a kid,and being absolutely terrorfied at some of the earlier ones.I was 7 years old and we lived in an old house on the beach for 6 months,it used to creak alot when the wind blew,and then this show would come on.

Especially some of the early episodes were the most scary.There was something about the atmosphere of the old English surroundings,that kind of gives you the creeps at times.

The episode where the guy was burying people in the cellar was scary as well as Someone At The Top Of The Stairs.

The episodes are quite long,which is good when you have a real scary one,but some episodes tend to drag on a bit.But upon saying that this is an excellent series and worth getting.

And I love it just as much now, it's dated perhaps but then again so am I. Subtle fear coupled with oftentimes cozy settings make for a sense of creeping dread missing in so many big budget theatrical horror releases. The music fits it perfectly and adds to the unnerving atmosphere greatly. My only complaint is that I can't find the other seasons.

Thriller is a British anthology series, much like Night Gallery or Twillight Zone and fans of those series will find much to enjoy here. A little slowly paced for American audiences (especially the MTV generation) but patience will reward with some excellent story telling and good English video work. recomended

I grew up with this show as a young girl in my pre-teens. This is a classic, no gory blood scene or head flying off, but the suspense will chill you to the bones. I love the way it always tells a good story and with the acting, it is worth watching over and over again though you may already know what is going to happen next. Highly recommended. It took a lot of searching on line to finally find this. I also got it for a very, very good deal.
