Few things spooked me as a kid like the true tales of murder and mystery on ‘Unsolved Mysteries’, hosted by Robert Stack. The stories features on ‘Unsolved Mysteries’ were very real, making the series much more terrifying than any horror film I came across. They explored cold cases, unsolved crimes, murders, missing persons, criminals on the run, and reports of paranormal activity.
FilmRise has acquired the worldwide rights to the show. The series is finally headed to Digital HD 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,” The CEO of FlimRise, Danny Fisher stated. “Unsolved Mysteries is an American tradition that FilmRise is excited to preserve.”
One of the reasons that I find ‘Unsolved Mysteries’ so frightening is that one of the cases on the series hit close home. In fact, it made the local news. When I was younger, the series aired an episode about a man from Alaska who murdered his wife and children and fled the state. A nurse, who my mom worked with at the local hospital and was friends with, saw the episode air on a TV in one of the rooms she was working in at the hospital, only to realize the man they were hunting was her new live-in boyfriend. The authorities were contacted and the man arrested. She had no idea she that she had been sharing her home and her bed with a killer.
Besides coming to new platforms, if you subscribe to Netflix, you can now order ‘Unsolved Mysteries’ DVDs by categories, such as Ghosts, Strange Legends, Bizarre Murders, ect…
