One of my favorite all around episodes of NG!
10 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of Night Gallery's best and creepiest episodes during its run! All the stories(except the Edgar Allen Poe story at the end) are in my Night Gallery Top Ten list! Cool Air was a very good story with a strong horror tight and well acted performances! And the second story, Camera Obscura, was also very creepy and reminded me of movies like Night of the Living Dead or Lemora: Child of darkness!And they were creepy with having to use any blood, gore, sex or CGI! I recommend watching ONLY the unedited version of Camera Obscura! The syndicated version ruins the story by adding scenes that that have nothing to do with the show and making it far more predictable! Camera Obscura to me is the best story of this bunch!
