"Lights Out" was an early television series based on the eerie dramatizations of the popular 1930s radio show. The broadcasts made writer and director Arch Oboler a household name synonymous with the macabre. It was brought to network television between 1949 and 1952. A precursor to shows like "Twilight Zone," "Night Gallery" and A"lfred Hitchcock Presents," "Lights Out" is a chilling remnant of old-fashioned ghost story-telling.
