Thriller (also known as Boris Karloff’s Thriller) is an American anthology television series that aired during the 1960–61 and 1961–62 seasons on NBC. The show featured host Boris Karloff introducing a mix of macabre horror tales and suspense thrillers Reruns currently now air on various classic TV networks.
Thriller was an early milestone in Goldsmith’s career, one of the television steppingstones en route to big-screen fame. Goldsmith would ultimately score 16 episodes of Thriller (about a third of all those with original music) including some of the scariest and best-remembered hours.
Includes suites from some of the most memorable episodes:
THE GRIM REAPER
