Vampires, Did You Say?
31 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Elizabeth Montgomery and (oddly cast) Tom Poston play a married couple named Denham who find themselves stranded one stormy night at the home of the Carta family, led by Jed(played by John Carradine, in a most familiar role for him!) They live in a spooky old mansion, and it sure does seem that the Carta clan is plotting something most gruesome indeed for the Denhams, but as one might expect, things are not as they seem, even with the local legends of vampires in the area, which all seem to laugh off, but it might not be so funny before sunrise... Jokey episode set around Halloween is moderately amusing, though not scary, and twist ending will either bring a smile or a groan to the viewer....
