Eerie and and inventive
15 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Clever Robert Bloch story about a pair of spectacles (hence the title) that lets the wearer see the truth about oneself and others. The spectacles' inventor hangs himself after trying them on, and they turn up years later in an estate sale. Each subsequent wearer meets a ghastly fate. Mildred Dunnock, Jack Weston and Harry Townes lend this creepy episode plenty of class and suspense. The episode is one of the supernatural ones, which I always preferred to the standard crime episodes, which often felt like old-fashioned stage plays. Even though we know where this episode is headed, it is full of shocks and surprises, right to the bitter end. Highly recommended.
