Storyline

Near Aix-les-Bains (South-East of France), two women, Kassia and Leonora, are driven by a fanatical blackmailer, named André, in a white Rolls Royce at full speed. Suddenly, they stop near a lake, in the middle of the woods, where the man decides to have a swim. He asks the two women for a drink. The women plan to assassinate him by introducing a deadly leaf from a Thanatos tree in the cocktail. The man dies by poisoning and drowning and the women stare at him without moving. They put the dead body in the trunk of the fancy car. Later, they've lost their way in the countryside and, finally, find a mansion where an old blind man, Colas, opens the door. Upstairs, a strange inventor, Tone Hobart, built a time machine which could resurrect the dead. Unfortunately, André is now alive and ready for a revenge.

Interesting predecessor to Sapphire and Steel
5 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Telegonus' review is well-written and on-point, so my review is merely an addendum to it.

For anyone interested in watching this episode, it is well-worth the time. "Forms of Things Unknown" is available for download through Amazon; it is listed as the last of the first season episodes of the 60's version of "The Outer Limits".

The designation of this episode as "horror" is almost an over-statement in terms of "The Outer Limits" as it does not have the monster/alien element of most OL episodes. That does not mean anything was lacking in terms of suspense, though. The difference in atmosphere was due to being filmed as a pilot for a possible series called, "The Unknown".

At times, "Forms" has an almost mesmerizing quality. For b/w, the episode was beautifully filmed and has an almost film noir quality.
