Twilight Zone Down Under
15 December 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Galls me to agree with my expatriot Aussie-Stud cohort on Rhode Island but he is spot on here...THE EVIL TOUCH was classic retro-70's. With weekly US imports such as NIGHT STALKER's Darren Mcgavin, and POSEIDON ADVENTURE/FORBIDDEN PLANET'S Leslie Nielsen (a generation ahead of THE NAKED GUN series) the show offered the late late viewer tales of mystery and imagination to compare with the best of US spook TV at the time.

Hosted by tewwibly bwitish Anthony Quayle this series rocked..albeit for scarcely a season till unimpressive ratings condemned it to a fate worse than re-runs!

If you have the opportunity to catch any of these shows I suggest you take it!
