Unsettling, disturbing episode from the anthology series re-christened "Circle of Fear"
2 October 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

D.C. Fontana and Harlan Ellison concocted this twisted tale concerning six young people who rent out a store space on a city block for their arts and crafts...but the location has a troubling history. Before they're even open for business, the kids find a trunk in the back room containing six individual glass jars, each in a different color--as if the containers each held their own distinct personalities. Immediately, the owners covet the jars and never let them out of their sight, while their work turns frighteningly obtuse and morbid. Scary little yarn, directed by Alex Singer with a calm, sure hand. The writers don't wish to cop out at the finish line (like so many of these episodes do); they attempt a final turn of the screw, though the visual jolt doesn't really make a lot of sense plot-wise. No matter, as not all ghost stories have to be logical. The cast (including a curly-topped Tyne Daly, Tim McIntire, Joan Blackman, and Frank Converse) is very good, and the production is first-rate for '70s television.
