A Good Slice of Life Drama
27 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We have Robert Bloch back in action for this screenplay. Most of the best episodes for this series came from his pen. A rich and famous whodunnit writer buys a house and turns into a representation of her output. She also purchases a painting of the Grim Reaper, a painting that has a curse on it. Onto the scene comes nephew, William Shatner, who appears to be concerned about her excesses, particularly her drinking. He also spins the tale of the evil painting, begging her to get rid of it. She has just married a gigolo who is young and insincere. Of course, the painting is going to get into the act at some point. This has a really nice sense to it, giving us a clue then taking it away. It was a really good offering to conclude the first season. Shatner is actually quite good, doing his overacting bit that would be his trademark a couple years later in the original Star Trek.
