Really good--Curtis does it again.
31 October 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

By the way, no narrator is listed by IMDb. It sure sounds like John Dehner.

Segment One stars Ed Begley Jr. and begins in the present time. After buying an old car from the 1920s, he suddenly finds himself transported in time--back about 40 years. But why? Well, when he returns to the present, he's able to figure it all out for himself. Overall, interesting but not especially memorable.

Segment Two stars Patrick Macnee, Anjanette Comer and Horst Buchholz. A woman insists she's being preyed upon by a vampire and her husband seeks out professional help. I won't say more--the twist is REALLY, REALLY good. It's probably the best of the three segments.

Segment Three stars Joan Hackett as a grieving mother. She can't get over the death of her son and has sought the occult to try to return him. Unfortunately, she gets that--the boy returns. Unfortunately, it's NOT all it's cracked up to be! Almost as good as segment three--very creepy and memorable.

Overall, you've got two great episodes and one good one--not a bad outing for Dan Curtis--the man who also brought us "Dark Shadows" and many wonderful monster films in the 60s and 70s. Well worth your time and perhaps the pilot for a failed series.
