Really creepy and enjoyable....with one minor flaw.
"Lights Out" was a very early horror anthology television show. Like all shows of the late 40s and early 50s, the production values are pretty poor, but this doesn't mean an episode is necessarily bad. A few from this series are positively brilliant, such as "Dead Man's Coat". While "I Spy" isn't quite that good, it is one of the better shows they made.
The show stars Henry Hull (a very familiar character actor of the day) and Dorothy Stickney as Mr. and Mrs. Potts. They are a MEGA-weird couple and are obviously quite insane the further you go in the episode. However, just how insane and potentially dangerous is something you'll have to discover for yourself when a lady knocks on their door. I'd say more but I don't want to spoil the 'fun'.
I loved this episode--especially when this nutty couple took the lady prisoner. There is only one problem--HOW did they keep her there and why did the lady stay? It was only later in the show that they locked her in AND they didn't brandish a knife or gun. The script, oddly, never explains this.
