Storyline

Alan Richards and his wife are back in New York after living in Africa where he was in charge of a major construction project. His wife was deeply affected after a local witch doctor placed a curse on them and has taken to keeping charms to ward off evil spirits. While Richards doesn't discount the power of the witch doctor entirely, he dismisses her fears as unfounded. Having a drink in a bar one evening he finds that his wife left a protective amulet in his coat pocket. He leaves it on the bar when he leaves - and as a result has a dangerous and frightening walk home, only to find something there waiting for him. Written by garykmcd

What Your Amulet!
25 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The supernatural world is full of curses. There are times when it is prudent to believe a little, at least in The Twilight Zone. A woman carelessly brings back things that should have been left undisturbed. She sees them as souvenirs. They aren't. They are a connection to terror. Then her shortsighted husband gets into the act. Tales of terror are permeated by shortsightedness and that happens here. If we can't go to the jungle, the jungle will come to us. One is victimized and another waits to be. This is a pretty decent story. If there's a shortcoming, it would be that the main characters are not given a chance. They act the way people do, and that's their undoing.
