Great mood even if it doesn't make a whole lotta sense.
Anne Francis stars as a rather odd lady who feels lost and inexplicably scared in a department store. Who she is and what is going on is not certain, but the episode did a great job of maintaining a creepy mood-even though for much of the episode nothing particularly scary is occurring. There is a pervasive sense that SOMETHING is amiss as the lady wanders about the store. Oddly, the store closes with her in it and she wanders about--going floor to floor and wondering why she cannot escape. By the end, there is of course a twist that makes sense of the last 20 minutes--but the "twist" doesn't exactly make sense--but it STILL is interesting and worth seeing. All in all, a very effective job in building the proper mood--this one might just give you the creeps--even if the end is a tad silly.
