Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration] The Twilight Zone has existed in many lands, in many times. It has its roots in history, in something that happened long, long ago and got told about and handed down from one generation of folk to the other. In the telling, the story gets added to and embroidered on, so that what might have happened in the time of the Druids is told as if it took place yesterday, in the Blue Ridge mountains.

Easily one of the best "Twilight Zone" episodes ever
16 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the Blue Ridge hills blonde Ellwyn (Laura Devon) is going to marry hunky Bill Ben Turner (James Best). However another girl named Jess Belle (Anne Francis) wants him. She goes to the local witch named Granny Hart (Jeanette Nolan) and gets a potion that makes Billy fall for her and reject Ellwyn...but at a horrible price.

Haunting and eerie "Twilight Zone" episode. It's one of the hour long episodes and works beautifully. There's some beautiful black and white cinematography here that helps the mood of the story and all the acting is great--especially Nolan who is having lots of fun playing a witch. There's even a song that goes along chronicling the events of the story. Most of the "Twilight Zone" episodes are pretty boring and predictable...but this one sure isn't! Also I don't scare easy but this one really creeped me out! Recommended.
