Arriving home from work, she finds an escapee from a mental hospital with the old bitty tied up and gagged; she was so irritating he couldn't stand her talking anymore. While he hides at their house for a few days, Emily is supposed go to work as usual, but not utter a word of his presence to anyone or it will be curtains for the old lady.

Not bad

This episode is worth commented. The others I watched were so so stories I forgot just after seeing them. Sort of topics we could see in usual forgettable films. This one tells us the tale of a married woman who visits her old mother and who finds her taken as a hostage by a sort of lunatic man. A very strange crazy fellow who threatens the old lady...

The atmosphere is well described, and helped a lot by the score. A suspenseful story, far better - I repeat - than the other I already saw from this DVD set. But it's not Alfred Hitchcock Presents either...

I wait for the following episodes of SUSPENSE. If any of these are interesting, I'll comment them.
