This Swedish horror television series was broadcast in American syndication from 1959 – 1960 in half-hour episodes.
Lon Chaney Jr., a man whose crime was so terrible he was condemned to live at the horrific 13 Demon Street, introduced each episode. If he could convince the audience that the crimes in the stories he related were worse than his, he could be freed from his imprisonment. The problem is, his crime is never specified.
The episodes are performed in English, with Swedish subtitles.
The director, Curt Siodmak, was the writer of The Wolf Man , a 1941 film starring Lon Chaney Jr.
Three episodes of the TV program were combined, with additional scenes by Chaney, to make the movie The Devil’s Messenger in 1961.
Actors: Lon Chaney Jr.
