"The Wendigo"
27 October 2006 | by (Out There in the Dark) – See all my reviews

I think I only saw one or two episodes of this show, so long ago. But that episode was never forgotten: "The Wendigo", based on a story by Algernon Blackwood. The utter horror of this tale was something I had never encountered at that young age.

I found the story to read (it's easy to find) and it's even more horrific. A real nightmare.

Too bad, but the TV series was broadcast live, so few tapings of it are in existence. However, you never know when some archivist may turn up with unexpected copies that might be issued so we can all see this show again.
