Yuck!
6 November 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While my summary more than adequately conveys what I think about "Will-o'-the-Wisp", IMDb demands a bit more from its reviews. This episode stars Robert Stack as a nice guy who is being used by his ex-fiancée and her father to try to force some folks off an island so they can create some sort of development. However, there is a force there--one that won't allow any harm to come to the island--even if it must kill. While this idea is good, the show is so overdone and overacted that it almost made me laugh. Stack isn't bad--but the women have all the subtlety of a nudist at a Baptist barbecue!

This is one of about 15-20 "Lights Out" episodes that still exist. Most very early television shows like this weren't saved but a few are available for free download at archive.org. My advice is to watch "Dead Man's Coat"--but most of the rest of the "Lights Out" shows seem dated and inferior. A much better anthology series from this same period, "Tales of Tomorrow" is also available for download--and is much more worthy of your time.
