I remember watching this on late night TV when I was a kid, and it really has stuck in my memory. It has that classic setting for a horror tale, a remote base in the arctic - part of the "Distant Early Warning" system of radar stations to detect Soviet missiles coming over the North Pole. But of course the real threat has a more distant source and is more insidious. As a sixth grader I really liked the play on this concept in the title.
This is one of those shows I'd like to see again after all these years, to see if it holds up. Some do ("Gargoyles"), some don't ("Logan's Run").
As I recall, this was part of a weekly late night horror anthology. The other show I really remember involved a sinister TV which somehow interacted with people watching and could suck people into the frightening TV world.
