Synopsis:
With memorably unsettling opening credits and exceptional performances and direction, 'Armchair Thriller' became a massive hit for Thames Television in the late 1970's and early 1980's. With its trademark ghoulish, razor-sharp cliff-hangers and iconic theme tune (by Roxy Music's Andy Mackay), this haunting anthology series was an immediate success - its eerie, disturbing and downright scary tales regularly attracting over 15 million viewers. Each of its ten stories is a gripping exercise in compelling television, showing ordinary people plunged into extraordinary situations.
For many, this series remains a high-water mark of dramatic television and its many frightening and spooky moments are remembered by viewers nearly thirty years after its original transmission. This set contains all ten stories made by Thames Television, including the never-transmitted six-part version of 'The Chelsea Murders'.
