Murderer: It's all gone wrong. It should have been so easy. I saw this house. Deserted, isolated. I thought I'd stay here and rest. Then he came, with that sign of his. I had to kill him!

Tense and creepy

It seemed very fitting that this episode starred Ida Lupino, as she'd previously starred in a very similar film along with Robert Ryan. In both cases, Lupino spends most of the episode being terrorized by a homicidal madman—trying to find some way to escape before she becomes his next victim.

The show begins with Lupino and a realtor having just finished up looking at homes. She notices a new listing that looks promising and goes on her own to see the home. However, the man in the home is NOT the other realtor but an escaped maniac (George Macready). He's really agitated and she spends much of the episode trying to bargain with him for her life. When some other people do arrive to look at the home, the nut-case threatens her and tells her to keep her cool or she AND these two others will be the next victims! Lupino was the fourth of the four stars in the series title. However, for some reason she left the series and was replaced by Joan Fontaine. It's a shame, as Lupino was excellent here and was a very good actress.
