Scared the heck out of me when I was 11 years old.
14 January 2016 | by ionaalbaSee all my reviews

Saw this episode when it first aired. I was 11 years old. Could not sleep that night. I had nightmares for awhile and will always cite this episode as the unforgettable one. This was a great series. Only about 14 episodes in total. There are a few episodes available on You Tube, but not this one. Would love to see it again to see if it holds up after over 50 years. As opposed to Twilight Zone, I noticed, even as a kid, that it seemed more like a live TV play than a film. The scenes in this episode were all taped inside two or three different rooms and that was all. It made it all claustrophobic. I think that only adds to the weirdness of it. I rate this a 10 only because I saw it through the eyes of an 11 year old boy and it stayed with me. If I ever get the opportunity to see it again, I might be ashamed that I rated it so high!
