A creep episode looking at death as it awaits!, 30 August 2014
Author: Danny Blankenship from Petersburg, Virginia

This "TZ" episode from the 80's was one of the last it aired in 1989 it starred screen legend the now late Janet Leigh. It was a dark episode about looking at death it's something that everyone will deal with and face. Called "Rendezvous in a Dark Place" Janet Leigh is an old lady named Barbara who is so obsessed with death that she goes to the funerals of strange people she doesn't even know! So soon the grim reaper appears to show her his dark nature and how he does it with people and souls. It's really a look into the future of that lonely time when she and everyone else has to go thru as Barbara will soon see the outcome isn't what she thinks. Overall dark and creep different like "TZ" episode still a watch it entertains and it's some good last work from legend Janet Leigh.
