Totally delightful with fun twist.
26 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another one of my favorite episodes. It is not terrifying, but they were not trying to be. Even so, it does have it's genuinely creepy moments. The great John Carradine plays his creepy role with relish as the head of the family that could be vampires,cannibals or just plain murders. Also delightful are Tom Poston and Elizabeth Montgomery who play a young couple that come out of the storm to this creepy house, the wonderful psycho house. I absolutely loved all the cliché mocking touches being a fan of creepy shows and movies from childhood. I first saw thriller when I was five or six, but this show wasn't seen until a little less than ten years ago.

The amusing surprise ending was exquisite!
