Underrated episode is a small gem, as Edward Binns and June Vincent play Fred and Ruth Graham, an unhappily married couple who have one final argument at their old house in Connecticut. Mysteriously, Ruth talks about vanishing into the house, becoming zero, and incredibly that is what appears to happen, as she disappears inside and is never seen or heard from again! A suspicious police Lt.(played by Fred Wayne) relentlessly hounds Fred, convinced he murdered her, but an official inquiry rules him innocent for lack of evidence. Fred steadfastly maintains his innocence, until he too disappears inside the home, which has a history of happening to previous owners, all of whom were unhappy with life. Interesting approach to have host John Newland interact with the Lt. who relays the strange story to him, as the house's possessions are being carried out to be sold, as it will be torn down to make room for a highway. Atmospheric and eerie episode will stay with you long after-wards. A highlight of the series.
