Quotes

Narrator: [Closing Narration] Object known as a camera, vintage uncertain, origin unknown. But for the greedy, the avaricious, the fleet of foot, who can run a four-minute mile so long as they're chasing a fast buck, it makes believe that it's an ally, but it isn't at all. It's a beckoning come-on for a quick walk around the block - in The Twilight Zone.

A great episode? No. But it sure was fun to watch.
29 January 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Some idiot criminals happen upon a camera that can predict the future. After a while, it's certain that either the camera is cursed and the future it shows is only negative and twisted OR the guys are just idiots and make their own horrid futures. Either way, it's fun to watch the knuckleheads slowly ruin their lives.

This episode is rather "light weight" compared to some of the more serious or philosophical Twilight Zone shows. However, despite being a bit silly, it did score high marks in the category of fun. Seeing Fred Clark and the rest as they totally waste this "gift" is a kick and very reminiscent of another funny and twisted Twilight Zone episode ("WHAT'S IN THE BOX") which starred William Demarest and Joan Blondell.
