Goofs

When Martin Senescu answers the couple, "Perhaps not young man..." The left most sailor (dark hair) is looking to his right, arms uncrossed, by his side. As Martin continues to speak (no break) and the camera angle changes, the sailor is now looking up and to his left, arms crossed with his left chin touching his chin. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration] Martin Lombard Senescu, a gentle man, the dedicated curator of murderers' row in Ferguson's Wax Museum. He ponders the reasons why ordinary men are driven to commit mass murder. What Mr. Senescu does not known is that the groundwork has already been laid for his own special kind of madness and torment - found only in the Twilight Zone.

Martin Senescu (Martin Balsam) is a tour guide in a museum and is obsessed with the exhibits. They are mass murderers in wax about to be discarded as the museum's owner believes the public are no longer thrilled by Jack the ripper and the like. Senescu cannot give up his 'friends' and so keeps them in his basement.

For me this is an ordinary horror tale that lacks depth, meaning, and sensible human aspirations for true Zone standard. Senescu simply has an unhealthy obsession that cannot lead to any good. So you get a weird tale, but not a thought-provoking or an involving one. Martin Balsam was a very fine actor, but the mad single-mindedness of this character does not impress me. Having said all that, this would be one of the better entries in just about any other fantasy anthology series.
