A Great Ghost Story
12 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally a show worth its salt. Written by Robert Bloch, who wrote for Twilight Zone and was the author of the book Hitchcock used for "Psycho," penned this screenplay. It involves a pair of "cheaters," those cheap glasses we buy when we are older and just need a mild correction (i.e. reading glasses). In early America, a man invents spectacles that allow one to see the thoughts of others. He goes mad when he tries them on and hangs himself. The story now follows the life of the glasses as the wearers experience a series of disastrous events. The fun come in the seamless way they find their way from person to person. Unlike most of the other offerings in this anthology, this is not the hackneyed, fill-in-the-blank plot that most of them have. By far the best of all the episodes to date.
