Bizarre, creepy and thoroughly enjoyable !
10 July 2000 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

'Hammer House of Mystery' was one of my favorite TV series (British). And this episode stands out as one of the best, as well as the creepiest. see the entire series if u can, and DON'T miss this one. Actually, there is a pretty basic existential question at the heart of this film, but it is rarely handled with such precision or finesse.
