The Dolls
13 April 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Excellent episode was the best of the season, as a man(played by Philip Abbott) moves into an old house with his sister(played by Joanna Linville) and young daughter Anne(played by Mimi Gibson). Relations are strained between him and his daughter because his wife (her mother) died, and he unjustly blames her. Anne finds solace in her bedroom with three dolls(named Jennifer, Rose, & Mary) she becomes obsessed playing with, as they become her only friends, and as it turns out, may be possessed by the spirits of three girls who died there many years ago, and want Anne to join them there permanently... Most effective ghost tale with fine cast and atmosphere, and fitting end.
