Considered the scariest episode of Thriller
28 July 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this recently on the "Scream channel".

It was Sheer dread packed into 45 minutes.

Atmosphere instead of gore.A lump in the pit of the stomach instead of it's gorge rising.

Stephen King has said that Thriller is the best horror series ever put on TV

This episode was based on a short story that Stephen King has called "one of the finest horror stories of our century".

Robert E. Howard's 1938 short story in Weird Tales magazine.

Joe R. Lansdale, adapted this story for a graphic novel in 2008.

He wrote that this "Thriller" episode"was for many years the most terrifying thing ever shown on television."
