Night Gallery Season 1 in August
Universal Studios Home Video have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Night Gallery: The Complete First Season for 24th August 2004 with a retail price of $59.98. Night Gallery was creator-host Rod Serling's follow-up to The Twilight Zone. Set in a shadowy museum of the outre, Serling weekly unveiled disturbing portraiture as preface to a highly diverse anthology of tales in the fantasy-horror vein. Bolstering Serling's thoughtful original dramas were adaptations of classic genre material-short stories by such luminaries as H.P. Lovecraft, Fritz Leiber, A.E. van Vogt, Algemon Blackwood, Conrad Aiken, Richard Matheson, August Derleth, and Christianna Brand. This variety of material brought with it a variety of tone, from the deadly serious to the tongue-in-cheek, stretching the television anthology concept to its very limits.
This three disc set contains twenty Night Gallery stories, including the original pilot and the complete first season. Presented in the original Full Frame aspect ratio with English Mono audio there will be optional subtitles available in English, French and Spanish. No extra features have been announced.
