Dan Curtis strikes again! Atmospheric stories reminiscent of the Twilight Zone and Night Gallery (not surprising considering Richard Matheson penned the script). All three stories are solid and entertaining, but particularly loved the nostalgia-tinged first entry and the chills of the final story. In particular, loved the effective use (or non-use) of lighting to add to the eerie mood.

It's Matheson ... that should say it all. If not, then it goes from nostalgia and speculative to vengeful and black to downright bleak and unforgivable. Matheson always knew that the worst monsters are not make believe, they are us, and 2 of the 3 stories here spell it out in spades. Dated, but timeless ...

so-so, not one of Dan Curtis' greatest. this is the type of tv movie that would most likely be played on a sunday afternoon after star trek reruns in the late '70s.

Not bad but not very creative or spooky either.
