A clean sweep at the beach!
11 January 2019 | by gkimmarygleimSee all my reviews

One of the creepiest Alfred Hitchcock episodes. Thru most of the 1/2 hour you just go along with the eclectic group of college chums, dumb gags & dialogue. But the ending will make your heart drop right down into your stomach. I had nightmares about this ending. I vote this 10/10 due to the ending. Watch, but consider yourself warned.
