scary stuff
18 July 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The episode "The Voice In The Night" must be one of the scariest episodes ever made for TV. Everyone about my age, who saw the rerun in the early 70's seem to remember it, but hardly anyone know what it was. Perhaps due to the fact that it has always been considered to be part of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" in Sweden - perhaps Swedish TV had got the episode "by mistake". Anyhow, the episode in question is about a honeymoon couple (James Donald and Barbara Rush) who suffers a shipwreck and end up in a everlasting fog, from which there seem to be no escape. Trouble starts when everything gets infected by a mysterious fungus.... It is all told in flashback to a couple of seamen (during a foggy night) who are told not to turn their lanterns in the direction of the man who is telling the story. If it ever was rerun again - or made available on DVD.
