one of the best episodes of the series
10 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

The Lonely One is one of my favorite episodes of The Ray Bradbury Theater. The episode is about a murderer dubbed "The Lonely One" who is responsible for a string of killings in a small town. No one knows the actual identity of the murderer, and so some of the residents are suspicious of the other residents. One woman, Lavinia (played to perfection by actress Joanna Cassidy), is determined not to let the atmosphere of fear interrupt her daily life. A free spirit, she convinces two of her friends (Maggie Harper and Sheila McCarthy) to go to the movies with her one night, even as another murder just occurred...I'll leave it at that.

Some of the camera-work and overall "feel" to this episode reminds me of the movie, Halloween, a little bit. Many of the episodes from this series (including this one) capture the essence of small town charm and simple living. There is plenty of suspense here, and it is really just a lot of fun to watch.
