Thriller with Boris Karloff

Boris Karloff hosted a series called Thriller from 1960 to 1962. A Kuttner story was adapted for the "Masquerade" episode. The Masquerade episode starred Elizabeth Montgomery and Tom Poston and featured John Carradine. It was directed by Ida Lupino. It is a humor episode and was shot in the same house used for Hitchcock's Psycho. The plot anticipates the Rocky Horror Picture Show in that newlyweds approach a creepy old house during a storm and confront its wacky denizens of horror.
