13 Demon Street

Show Summary

Veteran horror film writer/director Curt Siodmak created this eerie anthology series. The shows were set at decaying 13 Demon Street where the host, an unnerving and haggard Lon Chaney, Jr., opened and closed each episode. As he says in the show's introduction, "I am condemned to live here, to suffer on this earth eternally as a punishment for my sin. It is said that no greater outrage was ever committed by any mortal. But should I find a crime more heinous, my terrible punishment will end!" Chaney apparently didn't as the series never found a buyer and never aired. Produced in 1960 at Stockholm, Sweden's Nordisk Tonefilm studio, an unlucky thirteen episodes were filmed. At least some of the footage was salvaged when Herbert L. Strock was brought in to piece together a feature film (The Devil's Messenger) from three of the episodes. The host segments with Chaney were discarded and replaced with scenes featuring Chaney as the devil linking the stories together. Several of the episodes have been released by "Something Weird" video.moreless
