A witch's curse
16 May 2009 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

The wicked Elspeth Clewer (Sarah Marshall) is burned at the stake for witchcraft in 1661 England, but not before placing a curse upon her descendants, one of whom will be the instrument of her revival. After 300 years, Lady Margaret Clewer (also Marshall) returns to the ancestral estate in time for her 21st birthday, unaware of Elspeth's ghostly presence in the adjoining graveyard. Low-key and effectively creepy, featuring Ronald Howard (son of Leslie;he died in 1996) in his second of three episodes (the others being "Well of Doom" and "The Specialists"). Seen earlier in "The Poisoner," lovely Sarah Marshall (daughter of Herbert) later did a STAR TREK, "The Deadly Years," while Victor Buono also makes a second THRILLER appearance (after "Girl with a Secret"; he died in 1982), in one scene as a psychiatrist who diagnoses Lady Margaret's delicate condition. In the sizable dual roles of Vicar John Weatherford and his namesake 300 years later, Henry Daniell enjoys his fifth and final performance on THRILLER (after "The Cheaters," "Well of Doom," "Prisoner in the Mirror," and "The Grim Reaper"). Best known for his starring sparring opposite Karloff and Lugosi in 1945's "The Body Snatcher," Daniell died at 69 in 1963.
