I've watched almost all these episodes, and I have to say that although some of them are quite good, this is one of the most eminently forgettable ones I've seen so far, even though Richard Matheson did this adaptation of an August Derleth story. The problem is, John Newland is a terrible actor -- and not a particularly good director, either. Far from being frightening, the titular character swans around in a black cape that makes him look like a Dollar Store Dracula. If anything, he reminds me of the dentist Ed Wood, Jr. got to substitute for Bela Lugosi in "Plan 9 from Outer Space". Bentley's demon "familiar" is a nice effect, but the creepiness is quickly squandered because all it can do is stand around and make groping gestures. Even the presence of stunningly beautiful Antoinette Bower can't salvage this tripe.
