The best kind of scare story...one that mixes mystery with visual shocks
29 September 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Backhoe operator at a construction site digs up an antique box that is nearly impossible for him to get open; once he lifts the lid, taking out nothing but an innocent-seeming miniature rocking horse, his wife becomes frightened and asks him to put it back, but he can't...the horse has already grown. One of the best hour-long episodes from the doomed anthology series "Ghost Story" (which, by this time, had already been re-christened "Circle Of Fear"). Only lasting a single season, "Ghost Story" boasted such talents as story developer Richard Matheson and producer William Castle, but it took too many weeks to hit its stride and viewers gave up on it. Still, this episode, which skillfully combines shocks with a tangible mystery stemming from childhood, has solid performances from Martin Sheen and Kim Darby, plus some very smart writing. It shows what might have been--had the ratings been stronger. This spooky saga ranks as high as some of the best stories from "The Twilight Zone".
