'The Phantom Farmhouse' - David McCallum plays a psychiatrist in a country sanitarium treating his patients(like David Carradine) while a mysterious murder occurs that seems to connect with one of them, who has a pentagram on his hand. A phantom farmhouse with a beautiful woman and her parents also comes into play, as things are not as pleasant as they seem... Effective story adapted from Seabury Quinn has a nice atmosphere, with equal parts of melancholy and menace.

'Silent Snow, Secret Snow' - Orson Welles narrates this spellbinder about a young boy(likely on the autistic spectrum) who loses interest in his everyday reality, retreating into a more comfortable place of snow and privacy, much to the alarm of his baffled parents. Masterpiece is the jewel in the crown of this series, an exquisite story that works on multiple levels.
