'Pigeons from Hell" is the finest example of serious television horror ever aired. The episode truly depicts a confrontation of innocence versus evil. Two young men encounter, quite by accident, an almost unspeakable presence lurking in an abandoned plantation home. This is a deftly crafted chiller of a tale with it's dark sets and minimal lighting. The eerie music score is classic and serves to amplify the fright that grabs hold of you. The episode succeeds in piling on the tension - right up through the very frightening climax. Brandon De Wilde is marvelous as the main player and John Newland, One Step Beyond, directs exquisitely. If you have not seen this classic,you have missed out.
