Scary? Horrifying?
17 July 2013 | by LOVEfordsSee all my reviews

I do not understand what the other reviewers were trying to suggest that this episode of Night Gallery is so scary and horrifying and that Poe would be jealous. It is about as scary as an episode of Captain Kangaroo. The acting of course is wonderful with Thomas and Page (she could do anything) but honestly this is not scary. It is just a lot of screaming and yelling. That in itself is not horrifying it is just loud. Barbara (last name ?) who played the widow was pretty good too. I have a feeling that the reviewers who find this episode of Night Gallery to be so frightening and appallingly scary and horrifying are really Rod Serling groupies who would approve of anything he did. Don't fret if you miss this episode.
