The Hungry Mirror Lives On,,,and Still Rocks!
5 August 2007 | by (Western Washington State, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I first saw this episode the night it first ran and, like so many other contributors, I never forgot it. I was 13 years of age and it would be 47 years before I would see it again...and that was only after I had tracked down an old 16mm television print of it on e-Bay. I was almost afraid to watch it for fear that it would not live up to my recollections, but my fears were baseless. This is story telling of the old school, and builds the suspense and chills to a wild and horrifying conclusion. I look forward to springing it on my relatives this coming Halloween. For quite a while this episode was available to watch at, however I tried to locate it recently and can no longer find it at that site. It is well worth the effort to track it down - and there are quite a few sellers who have decent DVD sets of the old Thriller series for sale.
