Chilling and superbly eerie...
6 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first Outer Limits episode I ever saw as a little kid, and found it incredibly scary. When I recently picked up a box set of episodes, it was the first one I watched just to see how it held up.

While not nearly as frightening as when I was small, it still had plenty of punch and overall is still very eerie, and wholly chilling. Warren Oates is not recognizable as himself playing the human space-explorer crewman turned mutant with a Napoleon complex, but gives his usual fine performance.

Quite interestingly, the premise was rehashed in a Star Trek episode, Where No Man Has Gone Before, however two years later, with less hideousness and fright but just as much maliciousness by the affected crew member.
