Not bad....but what about the other episodes?
5 June 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film consists of a couple episodes from the British TV series "Journey to the Unknown" (1968)--'Poor Butterfly' (episode 1.6) and 'The Indian Spirit Guide' (episode 1.11). I have no idea if the rest of the episodes were any good, but the two used to make this full-length film were pretty good.

'Poor Butterfly' is the first segment and like the other it's introduced by Sebastian Cabot. It's probably the better of the two and, interestingly, stars an American (Chad Everett) living in the UK. Out of the blue, he receives an invitation to a posh society party--though he has never met the host. Despite this, he attends this costume party--and very weird things happen.

'The Indian Spirit Guide' is about a woman (Julie Harris--another American) whose husband died and she's trying to contact him through various psychics. However, again and again, her male friend exposes the psychics as frauds. But how he knows they are fake and why he delights in exposing them is something you'll have to learn about yourself--suffice to say, he gets his in the end! Both episodes are spooky and involve nice twists. While neither is brilliant, both are good and make for decent viewing. Well acted, written and directed by Hammer Films--the same folks responsible for a bazillion horror movies of the era.
