Night Gallery is a 1970 NBC anthology series celebrating the weird and macabre, in the same vein as The Twilight Zone. Hosted by Rod Serling of The Twilight Zone fame, Night Gallery focuses more on horror and the supernatural whereas The Twilight Zone placed importance more on science fiction. Each episode was presented by Serling with three paintings in which the host would intro with “Good evening, and welcome to a private showing of three paintings, displayed here for the first time. Each is a collector’s item in its own way—not because of any special artistic quality, but because each captures on a canvas, suspended in time and space, a frozen moment of a nightmare.” This would be followed by a story either based on classic, dark tales by authors such as H.P. Lovecraft or originals by Serling himself.
