Some things are best left remembered and not re-lived
26 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Like velvetelvis below, I, too saw this on TV when I was a child, and boy did it scare me! I must have been only five or six, which would have put the year at 1980 or 1981, so it must have been a repeat. I remember catching it on TV twice after, by chance, but I was still really little, so probably the last time I saw it before recently finding it again was 1984 or so.

I'd been trying to track this down for years - I still remember the creepy opening titles, and the old man in the dream. Finding this has become an obsession for the past couple of years, and today I FINALLY got a copy and re-watched. It's amazing that I still remembered so much of it.

But, alas, my worst fears were realized. This wasn't scary at all - the story was clichéd and downright moronic at times, cheesy '70's production values and hysterical overacting. Not in the slightest bit scary or even creepy, though it can be enjoyed for it's camp value.

I have to say, I'm a little bit sorry I've seen this as an adult, my fond memories of being terrorized by this are spoilt now. Ah well! such is life! Velvetelvis, if you have the chance to see this again, skip it. Instead, remember this as it was to you when you were young!

The one bonus: The UK DVD's have the US opening and closing titles of the episodes as bonus features, so I got to see the creepy titles I remembered after all these years.
