Storyline

A family of cannibalistic thieves menace a young couple, but the husband laughs off their scary Southern hotel as a joke. The lovebirds became lost on a second honeymoon and sought shelter in the spooky Baits Hotel, but were quickly locked in by the Carta Family. The gorgeous wife Rosalynn is appalled to find the Cartas have a private jail cell, containing haggard female relative Ruth Carta, who pleads for the young woman to release her.

Trivia

The PSYCHO HOUSE on Universal's back lot is featured as the primary location of this episode. It is seen in the rain as a place accepting guests, which also makes it similar to the "role" the house plays in PSYCHO. See more »

Just a promo for 'Bewitched'
13 January 2016 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

"His name is Darrin, and he's in advertising." Or something like that. Because it is hard to view this story as anything more than a vehicle for Elizabeth Montgomery's then soon-to-be-launched 'Bewitched' series. Her character, despite the macabre backdrop, is beautiful yet scrappy; unpredictable yet resourceful; loving yet fiercely independent. For all intents and purposes, she IS Samantha Stephens of Bewitched fame. Unfortunately, this preview of a modern '60s marriage of equals does nothing for what should otherwise be a horror story: Any semblance of suspense or terror is instantly undermined and diffused by our protagonist couple's incessant right-back-at-ya, sarcastic, screwball comedy-style banter. Sure, there is a momentary twist at the very end, but most viewers will have seen it coming.
