I remember three of the episodes
31 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Strange to think these live TV shows are now lost (I've read that taped copies of two unnamed episodes were discovered a few years ago). I must have been only ten or eleven when I saw "The Monkey's Paw" and "Room 13". One show, the name of which I don't remember, took place aboard the Titanic and was not particularly scary (although I can remember parts of it, so it must have impressed me in some way). I know the others scared the stuffing out of me. I can still vividly remember the scene in "The Monkey's Paw" when the moonlight shadow of the boy who was mangled by farm machinery ripples across the front of his father's old house, or the hellish fate that awaited the unlucky hotel guest who stumbled into the supposedly non-existent "Room 13." I would love to view those shows again just to see if they live up to my childhood memories. Alas, they likely only exist in the minds and imaginations of those who saw them in 1961.
