How frightening can a stone be? I watched this TV series as a child growing up in New Zealand during the 1970s. Creepy, sinister and haunting are how I'd choose to describe it, even 30-mumble years later. Having said that, I just had to watch it every week.
The story is about a young girl who is trapped in her home due to an illness that immobilizes her. She draws pictures that she eventually realizes come to life in her nightmares. She can influence her dreams by changing the drawings but the effects are not always as desired. The monsters in this story take the form of rocks about the size of arched tombstones and have two disquieting features. First is an eye that doesn't let you off the hook. And second is the way that in each dream they are bearing down on the house, getting closer and closer to carrying out some evil intent.
Remember how you felt watching Ridley Scott's "Alien" the first time? Cast that tension into a child's world and you have a sense of "Escape into Night".
