All said and done, our memories of this series are the unforgettable endings., 22 March 2010
Author: mzvirblis from United States

One of the very best episodes of the series! Gothic terror brought to the 80's.While we have seen "The Fountain Of Youth" done countless of times in film, never has it resulted in quite an ending! The ending, alone is worth the price of admission, for it could never have ended it this way back in a 60's episode of the series.Think I'm kidding? Watch the episode, and when all is said and done, would you switch places at the end with the nurse looking at her arm! This could have been a two part episode, since the horror is far from over and we need a little more information about the occupants of this house and of our story. We remember The Twilight Zone for those creepy endings.Please check this one out!
