Steven Grainger gives his son Tony money for his birthday, and takes the little boy to a remote magic store in town, where Tony can spend his money. The owner, Mr. Dulong, sees a promising future in the youngster, and offers to teach him all he knows about "real" magic. Tony's eyes fill with delight and stepping into a cabinet, he promptly disappears. Dulong then vanishes as well, leaving Mr. Grainger stranded in the streets, searching for his son. Strangely enough, the magic shop has vanished, along with Tony. Written by alfiehitchie

The Magic Shop Episode - The Alfred Hitchcock Hour
12 April 2014 | by (Nevada) – See all my reviews

The Magic Shop episode of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour is one of the creepiest stories I have ever seen. When I first saw it after a long day of working I fell asleep right in the middle and have waited months for it to re-air. Well it did 2 nights ago and I made sure I watched it to the end. I found it to be a very disturbing story & almost regretted watching it to the end. The little boy who was cast is creepy, the magic shop owner is even creepier. I love horror, suspense, thrillers and have pretty much seen them all. This story kept me engaged, and I have been thinking about it since I watched it. If you ever see it ready to air, watch it, you will not be disappointed!
