Wickedly delicious

This is as creepy and unsettling an episode of AHP as this show ever presented. A young man arrives in a small English village and takes u residence in a rooming house run by a sweet little old lady. In the course of events, she mentions two other tenants whom the young man seems to recall by name, but is not sure why. Plus, he never sees them going in or out. Soon enough, we discover what the landlady is up to, but by then, it's too late for our hero. Dean Stockwell of "Blue Velvet" and "Quantum Leap" fame is the naive young man, and Patricia Collinge plays the landlady. Collinge appeared in three other AHP episodes, by the way. A great finale, macabre to say the least, from the pen of the master of the macabre, Roald Dahl, whose many wicked little stories were very popular on several early TV anthology shows.
