only the ending disappointed
11 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This review is in regards to A Question of Fear starring the always-entertaining Leslie Neilson as an arrogant general named Malloy who questions a doctor's inner fortitude. The good doctor with the funny name, Mazi, challenges the general to a wager to stay in an old abandoned house for just one night for $10,000; naturally, the confident Malloy accepts the bet and agrees to stay smugly. Considering this episode is from the early 70's, I thought the creepy house and effects were done rather well, except for the ridiculous flying bat which was very fake looking. The general reacts to most of the scares like I expected him to, very brash and confident; he even mocks Mazi. Soon after, the episode has an interesting twist in which Mazi speaks to Malloy on a television set in the old kitchen the next morning. The conversation revolves around drugs and slugs, and to me, this is where it takes an unfortunate downturn as the once cool Malloy suddenly loses his coolness without looking into the doctor's story and taking everything at face value. Malloy shoots himself to death after being told this story by the vengeful doctor. My biggest qualm is how this proud general, who's been in war battles and is arrogant, suddenly falls apart without proving this fantastic story told to him.
