The nightmares begin… all over again.
This is a news story I have been waiting to write up for a long time. One of the formative shows of my youth was the Robert Stack-hosted “Unsolved Mysteries,” which I found to be quite a bit more nightmare-inducing than any of the horror movies I spent my childhood consuming. Freddy and Jason were my buds. But Robert Stack. Oh man. He creeped me the hell out.
From the haunting opening theme to Stack’s chilling voice, “Unsolved Mysteries” has to be considered one of the scariest television shows of all time, and I’m incredibly excited to pass along the news that it’s FINALLY headed to digital streaming platforms. As reported by The Wrap, FilmRise has just acquired worldwide distribution rights to the series, and episodes will start to become available on digital and streaming platforms as early as this month.
“We’re pleased to be releasing this celebrated series to a large audience of fans both old and new,” said Danny Fisher, CEO of FilmRise. “Unsolved Mysteries is an American tradition that FilmRise is excited to preserve.”
“Unsolved Mysteries” premiered as an NBC special in 1987. The series examined cold cases including bizarre crimes, missing persons’ reports, historical events and paranormal activity.
