These stories haunted me for years!
19 April 2017 | by berserkcoyoteSee all my reviews

I watched this show when I was 10 (I wasn't allowed to watch it, but my mom was at work so...). One episode concerned a mirror that held a lot more than one's reflection. For years afterwards I couldn't look in a mirror without real fear & a sense of dread. And The Monkey's Paw -- terrifying! I would love to watch them again & see if they were truly as scary as I remember. Maybe being "live" made them seem more real.
