Alfred Hitchcock Presents: ACROSS THE THRESHOLD (Arthur Hiller, 1960) **1/2
23 January 2010 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Despite the episode's mystical subject (a theme it shares with The Master Of Suspense's own last feature, FAMILY PLOT [1976]), the link to the horror genre is pretty tenuous and the end result merely adequate. An elderly woman (Patricia Colinge) obsessed with contacting her dead husband gets a chance when her son (George Grizzard) convinces an old flame (an actress, played by Barbara Baxley) to pose as a medium. He actually intends to have his possessive mother kill herself so that he can be free but his ex-girlfriend does not go along with his plan…while the old woman has her own idea of how her afterlife should be. As with most entries in the series, the ending provides a satisfying (if, in this case, predictable) twist.
