Strange Events
14 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Carolyn Jones(Morticia Addams from "The Addams Family") & Steve Forrest play Martha & Andrew Alcott, a married couple who are staying in their summer house as they always do, though this time a dark cloud seems to be hanging over them, as their marriage may be in trouble, and Martha has a recurrent nightmare involving her husband and the well in the basement. Is one of them doomed to die, and are they stuck in some kind of time loop, and why? William Windom costars as a concerned family friend. Strange episode has a good cast and story, though by the end it doesn't make total sense, and is partially unsatisfying, though is still spooky enough to succeed.
