In early 1978, the 'Logan's Run' television series was cancelled. Three episodes did not air in a network slot ( though they appeared later in syndication ); 'Night Visitors' is one of these. 'Logan' ( Gregory Harrison ), 'Jessica' ( Heather Menzies ), and 'Rem' ( Donald Moffat ) seek shelter in a creepy old house during a storm. They see objects moving by themselves, and ghostly figures who can vanish in the blink of an eye. 'Barton' ( Paul Mantee ) and 'Marianne' ( Barbara Babcock ) invite them to spend the night. They have no choice - the solar-craft is out of power. Logan thinks it has been tampered with and that the culprit is 'Gavin' ( George Maharis ). The mystery deepens; looking into a mirror, Logan sees not his own reflection but a room containing a coffin...

Written by producer Leonard Katzman and directed by Paul Krasny, 'Night Terrors' is not generally highly regarded by fans. Possibly because it does not feel like a 'Logan's Run' episode. Another reviewer has suggested 'Rod Serling's Night Gallery' and that is a fair comparison. Some interesting guest stars; Paul Mantee starred in the cult sci-fi movie 'Robinson Crusoe On Mars' ( 1964 ), Barbaba Babcock was in the 'Star Trek' episode 'A Taste Of Armaggeddon', while George Maharis was 'Buzz Murdock' in the series 'Route 66'. The episode might have worked had it been scary - it is not. The ghosts who inhabit the house want to sacrifice Jessica to the Devil so that Gavin's late wife can be restored to life. Though I do not see how she would be of any use to him - a dead man and a reincarnated woman is hardly a match made in heaven. The most notable thing about the episode is Logan and Jessica looking as though they might have fallen in love with one another at long last. But, by and large, it is a misfire. The ghosts do not even have the good sense to make Jessica to take all her clothes off before they sacrifice her!
