Neat episode

No-count Ray Wells (a nicely slimy portrayal by Adam Storke) kills his dying father (a brief, but memorable appearance by veteran character actor Rance Howard) so he can inherit an old ruined farmhouse. Unbeknownst to Ray, said farmhouse has a nightmarish legacy attached to it. Director Elliot Silverstein, working from a compelling script by Colman deKay and Tom Lyons, relates the engrossing story at a steady pace, does a sound job of creating and sustaining a spooky mysterious atmosphere, and milks the macabre conclusion involving a bunch of hideously burned up vengeful ghosts for maximum skin-crawling impact. Moreover, it's acted with flair by a tip-top cast: Storke positively oozes in the lead, the fetching Clare Hoak heats up the screen as the enticing Josie, Jake Busey registers strongly as the jealous Frank, Bette Ford makes a favorable impression in a small part as creepy old lady Mrs. Peterson, and Michele Landry is a flaky delight as the ditsy Emma. Christopher Faloona's slick cinematography gives this episode a cool stylish look. Walter Werzowa's moody score does the brooding trick. An enjoyable show.
